Today was a big day. Tomorrow will be an even bigger day.

  • Stop EVERYTHING. Katatonia revealed stuff today. City Burials, the next album from the somber metal legends, will be out on April 24th through Peaceville Records. Check out the first single, titled “Lacquer”, right now.
  • Let’s use this opportunity to remind everyone of the upcoming Lord Dying tour with Obituary and Black Label Society, and also introduce this new video for “Freed From The Pressures Of Time”. That track is from last year’s Mysterium Tremendum.
  • I think we are all aware of the upcoming Napalm Death tour this spring, but today I’m happy to share that Tombs will be joining them. That’s gonna be a beast of a lineup, not gonna lie.
  • Here’s a new music video from Anvil for “Legal At Last”, the title track from their upcoming album which will be out February 14th on AFM Records. Enjoy.

Initial Descent: June 16 – 22, 2019

Lunar Shadow

By the time this goes to press, I’ll be having my morning coffee sitting on the sand and near the waves for the first time since last year. Needless to say, I’ll be in my happy place and will be enjoying every second of it. Luckily, I will have brought along some of this week’s new metal which will, of course, only enhance the week ahead. A trio of heavy metallers get this edition of new releases under way; one that leans towards the goth side: Lunar Shadow, one that leans towards the fantasy side: Gygax, and one that leans towards the thrash side: Kryptos, and all of which kick some major heavy metal ass. Which leads us to the last top slot with newcomers Murk Rider who weave long, epic and twisting black metal tales to add the just the right amount of darkness to my current playlist.

Now, go seek and destroy. I’ll be over here getting sand in my crack. Continue reading
