Initial Descent: April 25 – May 1, 2021

I don’t know about you but the live show wait has nearly come to a sudden stop with the announcement of Deicide hitting the road AND coming near me. As far as this show goes, August can’t come soon enough and if any of you are near or somewhat near the ATL, hit me up. Alrighty, we’re back, again, for another installment of “what’s new and exciting this week.” Answer: plenty. Goregäng return from the crypts of death with a few new tracks and a few live tracks, everyone’s favorite hard hitters Gojira offer up album number seven—finally, Mortifero cover that dark folk space I love so much, and ewïg frost continue their reign of beer swillin’, liquor shooting, excellent speed metal.
