So I was sitting around a couple weeks ago, begrudgingly scrolling through some social media platform (while contemplating if this would indeed be the moment the internet finally made me stab my eyes out), when I saw a light far off in the distance. And by distance I mean slightly further down the page. What was this beacon I stumbled upon? Lordi. Mother. Freaking. Lordi. And just like that, inspiration struck.
I spent way too many hours watching Lordi music videos last night, and I’ve been in a dark place all day because of it. For that, I give you a new lyric video for “Like A Bee To The Honey”. Killection drop on the 31st through AFM Records.
Suicide Silence dropped a new single and music video today, titled “Two Steps”. Give it a watch below. Become The Hunter is out February 14th via Nuclear Blast.
I need to go for a run. Also, some of this news is from yesterday. Deal with it.
Fen, a band I love but feel like I haven’t mentioned in awhile, are set to release their next album on December 6th. It will be called The Dead Light and will be available through Prophecy Productions. Apparently Winter came out in 2017, so I suppose it hasn’t been that long.
Check out this new video from Cloak for “A Voice in the Night”. The song is obviously great, and this video is very much appropriate on a number of levels. The Burning Dawn will be out on October 25th via Season Of Mist.
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.
