Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
- Leading off, Corrosion of Conformity have just about wrapped up their first album with Pepper Keenan since 2005’s In the Arms of God. Get excited, folks.
- Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson has revealed the title of the new Enslaved album: E. Just, E. Okay then!
- According to guitarist Kerry King, a new Slayer album is possible in 2018 — if the band uses the half-an-album’s worth of leftovers from Repentless, as he suggests they might. Also if they do that? Said album will be wildly mediocre.
- The lineup(s) for Ozzfest Meets Knotfest have been announced and, somewhat oddly since it’s partially their festival, Slipknot will not be playing. However some actual good bands will be, such as High on Fire, Code Orange, Night Demon and more. Peep the full list here.
- Marilyn Manson has announced a month’s worth of fall tour dates around the country. Still no official updates on Heaven Upside Down, though.
- And finally, here’s a new song from Ursinne — a death metal supergroup of sorts featuring Dave Ingram (Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Hail of Bullets), Jonny Pettersson (Wombbath) and others. Check out “Underworld” below:
That wasn’t bad, I guess. About what you’d expect from those dudes. Their new album drops August 20 via Transcending Obscurity. Anyway, that’ll do it for now — check back soon for our next edition!
Keep it heavy,
