Initial Descent: April 22, 2016

Goddammit. This is the first time in I don’t know how long that I actually get to write this post the Thursday evening before it runs, rather than hastily cobbling it together the morning of. And I can’t even feel happy about that because we lost Prince today and all I wanna do is listen to Purple Rain and Sign O’ The Times. Is there metal coming out this week? I don’t even know anymore.

Okay, that’s a lie. There’s some. Aborted has a new album out. There’s also some hip-hop being released on a metal label —otherwise known as Dälek‘s new album, Asphalt for Eden, which is coming out on Profound Lore. So dive on in and take a look. Here’s what’s on tap for Friday, April 22:
