Embracing the Descent: September 5 – 11, 2021

EMBRACING TEMP LOGO

Been awhile since we did one of these. Extra day off, extra time, all that jazz. Whatever. You know how this rolls, we pick a fresh batch of albums that struck a chord and you go binge on them. Simple, right? We don’t need to tell you but will anyway; 2021 has given us some gems and will continue to do so and for that we all need to thank the dark lord that bands are even still making music after the shit everyone has been through and still going through. New favorites are coming out every week with no end in sight. This week we’ve got five that struck like lightning; two of them are from last week, but demand your prompt attention.

Razor sharp death metal with the attitude of the most incendiary hardcore on the planet is what you can expect from the impending debut EP, Incendiary Truths, from Las Vegas, Nevada’s Eyes of Perdition.

Just ahead of their EP being available for the masses, we had the chance to pose our Profile questions to Lindsay to find out some backstory on the band and her background as well, so head below to see how it went down and whatever you do, hit those links contained within to grab a copy for yourself. You can thank us later. IT. IS. THAT. GOOD. Trust us.
