I keep finding little, unknown gems that seem to oscillate between a liminal, musical space that drifts between sounds. Or, so I keep telling myself as I try to grasp at straws at the multiple facets and textures of Erebe’s debut album, Aeon. An album that spans multiple sounds and atmospheres, Aeon has truly left me wondering whether I have fabricated its elegance or whether it is that poignant in my mind. Let’s discuss.Continue reading
Squeezing one more in this week, just because I was cleaning out the inbox anyway.
- We’ll start with Anomalie, one of my favorite discoveries of the last couple years. Their new album, Tranceformation, is out on November 5th through AOP Records, and today they shared a new track titled “Cerulean Sun”, which features Sakis Tolis of Rotting Christ. Awesome.
- And then we have Whitechapel, who are following up on the news of their massive upcoming tour with Cannibal Corpse with a new track and video for “Orphan”. That’s another one taken from Kin, which is out on October 29th through Metal Blade Records.
- Sticking with Metal Blade for another couple seconds, if you couldn’t wait to hear God Ends Here, the latest from Aeon, the full album is now available for streaming right here.
- Wiegedood, which is kinda just fun to say (assuming I’m saying it right), dropped a new track today titled “Nuages”. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, There’s Always Blood At The End Of The Road, which will be available on January 14th through Century Media.
- I guess we’re going to double up on Century Media today as well. Omnium Gatherum (also fun to say) released a video for the new track “Fortitude”. Origin is out on November 5th, and the aforementioned video is available below. Enjoy that while I finalize packing for L.A.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Boomsticks, broomsticks, machetes, kitchen knives, chainsaws, meat hooks, ouija boards…are we having fun yet? Yep, still peddling spooky season and will be for at least a couple more weeks. So, at least I’m having fun. And for the reason you’re here, we do indeed have another list of new metal on tap so let’s get to it. Aeon are nothing if they aren’t consistent, and any death metal band that’s consistently in Deicide’s corner is a very good thing so this week’s full length is all that and a bag of chips. Next up is a killer noise rock album from Tunic that we so happen to have a Profile for so dig that, Hate bring the black / death metal pain in epic form (as they always do), post-metal has a new heavy hitter in its corner with Hippotraktor, and tons more lie in wait just below this excellent four pack. Dig in and find your new favorite(s). Enjoy.Continue reading
It’s Saturday. You already know we’ve got you covered. This week our playlist features a treasure trove of new singles; everything from the crushing piano-driven sorrow of Emma Ruth Rundle‘s “Return” to the crushing-in-a-different-sense-of-the-word swampy metal of Worm‘s “Empire of the Necromancers” gets a spot. If you’re looking for the best of what’s new, check all that out and more below.
I have returned from a long weekend in which I ran way too many miles. Now let’s see how many new singles we can cram into this thing.
- Let’s start with Cynic, who have announced new album details and shared a new single. Ascension Codes will be out on November 26th through Season of Mist, and “Mythical Serpents” can be heard at this location.
- This is from yesterday, but there’s no doubt I still need to include it. Opeth have announced a fall 2021 tour with Mastodon and Zeal & Ardor. Those dates are in November and early December, and take place at some really cool venues. Hopefully this tour plays out as planned, because I absolutely plan on making this happen.
- Vile Creature covered Kittie’s “Paperdoll”, and that sounds like a fun thing to add to the pile today. That’s part of The Flenser’s Send the Pain Below compilation, which you can find a vinyl copy of somewhere in here.
- I’m really excited about The Silver, the new group featuring members of Horrendous and Crypt Sermon. So here’s the new track from that project, titled “Breathe”. Their debut, Ward of Roses, drops on October 15th through Gilead Media.
- Let’s close with the new video from Aeon, because I’m still excited about their new stuff. Check out the clip for “God Ends Here” below, the title-track from their new album set for an October 15th release through Metal Blade Records.
