Apparently I only had time to bookend this week. My bad.
Kreator has been busy, releasing Hate Über Alles and then the limited 2LP Live At Bloodstock 2021 in quick succession. So on that note, we should probably open this account with the live clip for “Betrayer” from that performance. Dani Filth makes an appearance, which is fun.
Seventh Storm released Maledictus today, through Atomic Fire, and marked the occasion with the new video for “Gods of Babylon”. This album has been on deck for me to listen to for awhile now… maybe today is the day it finally happens?
Megadeth continues to impress me with what they’ve shared from The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!“Soldier On!” is no exception. The visualizer for the latest sample from that album, which drops on September 2nd, can be found below.
Moving to the technical side of death metal, Catalyst are preparing an October release for their second album. A Different Painting For A New World will be out through Non Serviam Records, and I recommend pre-ordering that one here.
And we’re rounding things out with some black metal. Skare are releasing their self-titled debut on vinyl through Amor Fati Productions on September 12th. Naturally, we have a track from that album below. Give “Threshold Into Death” a listen right now.
Power metal kings Stratovarius unveiled a new track, so we’ll jump there next. Give “Firefly” a listen here, the latest sample taken from Survive. That album is out on September 23rd through earMUSIC.
It’s a Friday, and it’s time to get aggressive, so let’s send ourselves into the weekend with some Amon Amarth. The Great Heathen Army is officially out today through Metal Blade, and we’re ringing it in with the new video for “Find A Way Or Make One” below.
Yeah, I’m not gonna lie, the heat is approaching a suffocating level at this point.
We’ll lead off this Thursday with some Fallujah, specifically referring to the latest, and final, single from Empyrean. Check out “Soulbreaker” here, and get ready for the release of that album on September 9th through Nuclear Blast.
And we’ll jump back to Nuclear Blast to close things out. Below is the new video from Malevolence for “Higher Place”. Malicious Intent is out now, and can be purchased here. They also have a ton of tour dates coming up, but you’ll have to seek those details out on your own.
Belphegor videos are usually something to behold, and this new one for “The Devils” certainly falls into that category. That is, of course, the title-track from their latest album, which is out now through Nuclear Blast.
We’ve waited quite some time for new stuff from Black Anvil, and today we finally have it. So that’s how we’ll end our day. Check out the clip for “Castrum Doloris” below, the first sampling from Regenesis. That album is slated for a November 4th through Season of Mist. They’re also joining Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, and Dark Funeral on the road towards the end of the year, so those dates are worth checking out as well.
