Initial Descent: April 17 – 23, 2022


Busy week ‘round these parts last week. Hopefully we can keep that momentum, but if you missed anything do catch up. Moving on to the reason you’re here…new releases and we’ve got a ton for this week that kicks off with a trio of excellent death metal from Undeath, Sentient Horror, and Corpsessed, a wickedly good heavy metal outing from Skull Fist, and a long list of other releases that are equally worthy of your time. Feel free to let us know what we missed and if your band or label wants to be included here, get in touch via our info found on this site. We’d love to hear from you.
