Another day, another dollar. If things were easy, we’d all sign up for the gravy train, but it just ain’t so. And, that train is long gone. Thinking out loud there…anyway, new metal time! Let’s get to it, Grave Miasma put forth probably their most deathy death metal album yet and I’m all here for it, Hore rolls out a freaking banger of a black ‘n’ roll album, Oldskull brings about memories of Morrisound era Floridian death metal, and Wolverine FINALLY are releasing their epic feature length audio / visual album on digital and vinyl—better believe I’m picking that up, excellent dark metal there. So, with no gravy train in sight, head below to find a new favorite from this long list of new releases. Drop some coin and enjoy the trip.
