Cult Burial
Cult Burial

No lie, and not that anyone cares, last week wore me down, with the exception of Halloween, and even though early, this week appears to be much the same ol’ beatings. YAY me. Also, this is the week to do the thing and get your voice heard so go vote, if you haven’t already. Monday means new metal list time so grab your wallets and get your clicky fingers ready; coming in HOT with a fiery death metal debut is Cult Burial who we recently did a Profile with so check that out as well and Sólstafir walk a very fine line between rock and metal but on their seventh album they make it sound even better than ever before. We’ve also got new death/doom from Pulchra Morte and very experimental black metal from MRTVI. Good stuff up top this week but more good stuff awaits below so click, listen, and support as many as you can.
