In the years between Eyehategod’s last release in 2000 and their new self-titled album, we’ve seen the rise and fall of nu metal, two new US Presidents, three new Prime Ministers, Gangnam Style, Harlem Shake and a Partridge film in a pear tree…

And Eyehategod still sound like Eyehategod, and it’s brilliant.

The once strong battle lines between pop and metal aren’t what they used to be. People are far less militant with their tastes in music. Rock club nights are as likely to play Skrillex as Limp Bizkit. It’s the reason why so many sub-par metalcore bands have turned their hand to bad dubstep. It’s no surprise that in certain quarters metal-meets-pop/R’n’B upstarts, Issues, are considered one of the buzziest new bands in the world right now.

So, Wet Nuns have announced that they’re splitting up. As they gleefully posted on their Facebook page, “our four year long joke isn’t very funny anymore. We’re sick of the sight of each other and the band is imminently to cease to exist.” Fair enough. For a band who’ve spent nearly half of a decade arsing around, this hardly seems like an incongruous end. Rest in peace, Wet Nuns. Remain in obscuria.

For a reluctant office-worker stuck on life’s treadmill, suffering from an almost complete apathy towards anything in his day-to-day routine, Årabrot will be a hard sell. Social lives consisting of little more than evenings spent slouched in a Sam Smith’s pub and a once-a-week visit to Nandos seem a little out of touch with Årabrot, who recently returned to society having withdrawn to an abandoned church in Sweden to play “mind games with the devil” and formulate ideas for their sixth, self-titled studio album.

Whilst the majority of bands fanny about deciding exactly which sub-sub-sub-subgenre of metal they’d like to fit exactly into, Dave Davidson and his crew in Revocation just get on with the business of writing excellent heavy metal. Also, it’s a widely-known fact that banjos on metal records rule.

It’s fair to say that, from its inception, this project has been recieved to the widespread spaffing of pants. You’ve got two major and winning components here – three former members of post-metal demi-gods Isis providing the instrumental backdrop to the unmistakable vocal of Deftones‘ Chino Moreno; a match made in heaven.

What happens when two of the most inspired, talented, and generally superb musicians in progressive metal get together? What have Opeth genius, Mikael Åkerfeldt, and Porcupine Tree maestro Steven Wilson birthed when mixing their mighty musical chromosomes? I’ll save you the piss-poor attempts at suspense: it’s one of the most brilliant records you’ll hear all year. That’s not the surprising bit. What you couldn’t predict is how strikingly different Storm Corrosion is.

“Don’t ever stop it / You got it / Accelerate it I want it!” Not only could the most brainless of pop acts write better drivel than the lyricism on display on Forever The Sickest Kids latest record, but these unfortunate phrases are imbedded amongst the electro-pop monstrosity that is second single ‘Life of the Party’. You can only wonder what was going through the quintet’s heads when they made a track that could force 3OH!3 to spew with its overbearing synth-stink.
