Initial Descent: June 5 – 11, 2022


New week and another new list of incoming metal. This is my one and only favorite thing about any given Monday and gets the pump primed for Friday. Or, something like that. Anyway, we’ve got much to explore here as we kick things off with a long awaited return from Kreator who are still the undisputed titans of thrash, an extreme take on black / death metal from Vølus, a nasty compilation of sorts from Fluids and just because it’s a comp doesn’t mean you get to sleep on it so DON’T, death metal that stings the nostrils from Severe Torture, and a whole heap of other stuff you need in your life. Happy hunting and see you here throughout the week…
