We’ll move onto the news I’m most excited about today. Mizmor is releasing a new album on January 14th through Gilead Media titled Wit’s End, which will include exactly two tracks… both of which will be inevitably massive. Pre-order it here.
I love me some Moon Tooth, so here’s some of that. They released an acoustic version of “Nymphaeaceae”, a track that was originally released back in October. It’s expectedly great in either form.
And we’re going to close out with a couple items from the Season of Mist camp. First is Cynic, who dropped a new track and drum play-through, titled “In a Multiverse Where Atoms Sing”. That is, of course, taken from Ascension Codes, which is out a week from tomorrow.
Finally, we have the new live video from Carnation for “Napalm Ascension”. That comes from the physical release of their Galaxy Studio Sessions performance, which can be pre-ordered here. That one is set for a January 7th release.
Well, that certainly was a week. However, three days to recover ain’t a bad gig so there’s that. Brother Vince might be mad at me for hijacking this week’s mixtape but, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to congratulate Demiser on signing with Blacklight Media / Metal Blade Records! Freakin’ stoked for them and can’t wait to see what the future holds. And for the mixtape, of course we’ve got the brand new joint from Demiser (obviously) but also new stuff from Archspire, Der Weg Einer Freiheit, Shy, Low, as well as Vitriol, Osi and the Jupiter, and many more so smash that play button below….
Hey look, another new track from a German black metal band that I absolutely adore. Waldgeflüster are releasing Dahoam on September 24th through AOP Records, and today they unveiled an epic new track titled “Am Tatzlwurm”, which features JJ from Harakiri for the Sky. It’s incredible.
Archspire unveiled the title track from their new album, Bleed The Future, and everything they do is a party so let’s toss that in as well. That album is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
And we’ll close with the new video from Shy, Low, the instrumental rock collective out of Richmond. Check out “The Beacon” below, and keep an eye out for Snake Behind the Sun, which will be out on October 8th through Pelagic Records.
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from the last couple of days:
Leading off, Maryland Deathfest announced the second wave of lineup additions for its 2018 edition. Some of the more notable acts in this round? Helmet, Today is the Day, Master’s Hammer, Khemmis and a bunch more. Check out the full list here.
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
Hail of Bullets is dead, long live Hail of Bullets. The Dutch death metal crew have officially called it quits, a year and a half after parting ways with vocalist Martin van Drunen.
Hey, thrash kids! Destruction, Warbringer and Jungle Rot are going out on tour together in May and June. Destruction dropped an album last year, Warbringer is dropping an album at the end of the month, and Jungle Rot is Jungle Rot.
So this is kinda neat: Tuesday night’s King Woman show in Brooklyn was supposed to be cancelled, with frontwoman Kristina Esfandiari stranded across the country thanks to Winter Storm Stella. And then, this happened. Huge ups to Kristina, Saint Vitus and the hero woman responsible for this turn of events.
Author & Punisher have signed to Relapse Records, and will be releasing a new album through the label early next year. I haven’t ever really listened to Author & Punisher, but whatever this concoction is sure seems amusing.
Dutch symphonic black metal weirdos Carach Angren have released details about their upcoming album, Dance and Laugh Among the Rotten, out June 16. One of the album’s preorder packages includes a set of dice — you know, just in case your list of vices includes both cheesy metal and gambling.
I’m sure, somewhere out there, someone’s thinking to themselves, “boy, I could sure use some grandma-fronted grindcore in my life.” Well fear not, possibly-existent person: The Grindmother are touring the U.S. later this month and April. I sure could not use any grandma-fronted grindcore in my life, so I’ll be taking a pass.
And finally, Animals as Leaders released a video for “Cognitive Contortions,” which you probably shouldn’t watch while high. Or maybe you should. I dunno. Here it is:
Another condition that should merit caution before watching this video? Thinking that you’re good at music. Anyway, that’ll do it for now, but check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!
