Initial Descent: January 26 – February 1, 2020


The recent turn of events for the incredible Tanagra is unfortunate at best and absolute bullshit in its entirety. At its core, it shows a company – that no one’s ever heard of – that will stop at nothing to cripple a band that has nothing to do with said company nor had any intentions of crossing paths in any way. If you do nothing else today, go here and buy all you can to show the band support and hopefully give them a fighting chance to rebuild or whatever their next step will be. In other news, we’ve got tons of new metals this week beginning with the old school blackened speedsters Bütcher, an industrialized and cinematic take on The Seventh Seal from Brooklyn’s Fliege, soul touching darkness from Deathwhite, and vermin infested death from Proscrito. Beyond that, tons more entries await. Do it.
