Initial Descent: April 3 – 9, 2022

Terzij de Horde

I told you last week the memes would come hot and fresh and that, at least, did not disappoint. Anyone know what fresh hell will be the new topic no one can shut up about? Ahh, that’s right… no one cares. Anywho, we do have a fresh and hot list of metal new releases this week that kicks off with a black metal favorite in Terjiz de Horde, slappin’ new metal from End Boss, more black metal from Oceansnow, an avant and difficult yet satisfying outing from Abhorrent Expanse (album cover of the week?), and a whole jam packed list that follows.
