It’s a slower music week with the US holiday, but there’s still been a hefty helping of heaviness, including new songs from Brutus, Greenwitch, Sonagi, Take It To Heart, Rejection Pact, and more. Read on for all the metal & hardcore we posted this week…
BRUTUS – “DUST”
The great, genre-defying heavy band Brutus are back with new single “Dust,” which finds their mix of atmosphere, melody, and aggression, and Stefanie Mannaerts’ soaring voice in fine form.
GREENWITCH – GRID WALKER
LA death metal band Greenwitch just dropped this three-song single on Maggot Stomp, featuring the bone-crushing title track, the thrashy, whiplash-inducing “Icosahedron,” and the 13-minute noise track “The Modification of Useless Appendages.”
SONAGI – “ATTACHMENT THEORY”
Philly screamo/post-hardcore band Sonagi have shared a new song off their upcoming debut album Precedent, and you can read more about it here.
TAKE IT TO HEART – “GHOSTWRITING A CATHARSIS”
Orange County hardcore band Take It To Heart are gearing up to release a new EP, Hymns For the Hopeless, on 8/12 via Safe Inside Records. Read more about lead single “Ghostwriting A Catharsis” here.
REJECTION PACT – “SOCIAL MURDER”

THE LORD & PETRA HADEN – “DEVOTIONAL”
The Lord (aka Greg Anderson of Sunn O))), Goatsnake, Engine Kid, and Southern Lord Records) has announced a collaborative album with Petra Haden, who’s appeared on albums by both Sunn O))) and Goatsnake (along with a long list of other credits). The album comes out September 23 via Southern Lord, and the first single is the album-opening title track, which finds Petra giving a wordless vocal delivery over an eerie, hypnotic backdrop.
SI DIOS QUIERE – “SACRIFICIO”
Metallic hardcore band Si Dios Quiere have dropped a new song to coincide with the start of their tour, and it’s a dose of brick-heavy rage, sung entirely in Spanish.
JUNTA – “SCREWDRIVER” & “POLICIA NO ME JODAS”
New York hardcore band Junta shares two pissed-off, heavy-as-fuck new songs.
DR. ACULA – “THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN OF PASADENA”
Long Island chaotic hardcore vets Dr. Acula announced their first new album in 10 years, and shared the first single.
