Blood Red Throne

Halfway through July, and we’ve got another busy week of new metal releases for you cretins. For starters, Norwegian deathsters Blood Red Throne return with Union of Flesh and Machine, their seventh album in the last 13 years. (Can’t fault a band for being steady!) We’ve also got Stranger to Violence from Psalm Zero — the Queens outfit’s final release with recently-dismissed guitarist Andrew Hock.

Beyond that, North Carolina’s MAKE return with Pilgrimage of Loathing less than a year removed from their previous album, The Golden Veil. Plus, new stuff from CaïnaEcferus and more. So let’s dive in and take a listen. Here’s what’s we’ve got this week:
