It’s new release Tuesday—time for another edition of Initial Descent! And — FINALLY! — a solid lineup of new stuff to dig into! (Feels like it’s been a while since we had one of those.) Anyway, here’s what we’ll be chatting about on this week’s podcast:
Paradise Lost – The Plague Within (Century Media)
Of course, the highest-profile release of the week is somehow not on U.S. Spotify. Because why should it be? For now, here’s where you can stream the album in full on YouTube. Though I wouldn’t bank on that being a long-term solution.
UPDATE: They added it. See below.
Clouds Collide – All Things Shining (self-released)
Nekrogoblikon – Heavy Meta (Mystery Box)
Pyrrhon – Growth Without End (Handshake Inc.)
We’ll also have written reviews of other new and upcoming releases here on the site throughout the week, but for now, take a listen and check back later this week for our spoken thoughts on these in Episode 2!
