Here at Revolver, we're always on the hunt for new songs to bang our heads to — indeed, it's a big part of our jobs. With that in mind, here are the tracks released this week in death metal, hardcore, trap metal and more that have been on heavy rotation at Revolver HQ.

For your listening pleasure, we've also compiled the songs in an ever-evolving Spotify playlist.

Bring Me the Horizon - "Kool-Aid"

Bring Me the Horizon fans were nervous when the band parted ways with longtime keyboardist-producer Jordan Fish last month, but "Kool-Aid" should tamper any doubts about the U.K. crew's future prospects. 

The latest NeX GEn single has all the glitchy electro-punk goodness that's defined their recent output, as well as some of the band's beloved metalcore moshiness. It's heavy and catchy in all the ways a BMTH song should be. 

Corpse Pile - "Reality"

The latest Maggot Stomp signees dubbed their forthcoming EP Hardgore Deathmetal, which is the perfect way to describe their bludgeoning new single "Reality."

Fusing guttural slam vocals with brutal death-metal snare thwacks, gnarsty riffage and oodles of mosh-able breakdowns, "Reality" is the perfect tune for those who equally love Sanguisugabogg and Hatebreed.

Discontent - "Nothing Beyond"

Discontent dropped a demo last fall that picked up some buzz in the Northeast hardcore scene, and this year they have shows coming up with Mindforce, Balmora and Scarab.

New single "Nothing Beyond" shows what all the hype is about. Raw, unvarnished moshcore with earthquaking breakdowns and shouty vocals that are metallic but still firmly hardcore.

Eye Flys - "Bananarchy Zoo"

Formerly featuring Full of Hell guitarist Spencer Hazard, Philly noise-rock weirdos Eye Flys have since stripped down to a trio, but their sound is no less flatteningly heavy. The band is named for a Melvins song off 1987's Gluey Porch Treatments, and King Buzzo and Dale Crover's influence looms large on "Bananarchy Zoo," a lumbering sludge-monster that's busted out of its cage to prowl in slow motion.

Vitriol - "Shame and Its Afterbirth"

Portland extreme-metal outfit Vitriol are set to drop their second full-length, Suffer & Become, later this month, and they sound absolutely possessed on its third single, "Shame and Its Afterbirth."

Opening with eerie, off-kilter clean guitar lines, the Lovecraftian epic erupts into an overwhelming swarm of seasick riffery and doesn't let up. Don't be surprised if, by the end of its near-seven-minute runtime, you feel a little woozy.

Kill Dyll - "Paranoia"

"Scary Music + Scarier Masks" reads the bio on Kill Dyll's Instagram. It's an apt description.

The Denver-bred artist makes menacing trap metal that's more than a little reminiscent of Ghostemane's unnerving clatter. Just a minute-and-a-half long, "Paranoia" takes listeners on a disorienting ride; mostly negative space, it's spiked, almost haphazardly, with industrial beats, atmospheric noise and scabrous vocals.

As for those masks, see Kill Dyll's latest at the top of this page. It's like Slipknot gone Venom.
