Initial Descent: June 12 – 18, 2022

Denouncement Pyre

By the time you read this I’ll be pushing sand and ocean waves through my toes on my annual ‘get the hell outta dodge for a week’ trip. Fear not, however, as my brothers in metal will be holding down the coffin. Too much? NAH, never too much in the land of all things extreme. You bet your ass I loaded some sweet tunes to jam to whilst beachside and some of which are from this week’s loaded stable of new releases. What exactly might these jams consist of you may ask, well… blackened death metallers Denouncement Pyre are back with a vicious slab of sinewy goodness, Tombs hit that metal of all sorts sweet spot on their all-too-quick EP, Inexorum offer up a delicious dish of black metal, Consecration get the lead out death doom style, and there’s many more in the list that follows to sink your fangs into. Nothing left to do now except to go GET SOME. Happy hunting and we’ll be seeing you here throughout the week. Oh, and yes I will bring you back a good sunburn…
