Initial Descent: July 31 – August 6, 2022


Another seven day rotation and we’re back with more new metal. New metal Monday’s, as it were. Or, whatever you want to call it. Anyway, this week’s list isn’t as bulky as recent ones but you can bet the quality is still there. You want proof? Sure, how about Psycroptic who understand how to mix great songs with tech death, or Fleshrot who just make killer dirty death metal, or Amon Amarth who have completely cornered the melodic viking death market, or Abaddon Incarnate who make vicious as hell deathgrind. And DO NOT forget about Soulfly, don’t you do it. So, go do your homework and find what trips your trigger then shower it with your purchasing power. Happy hunting and we’ll see you here throughout the week.
