Belgian melodic death metal band Fragmentum are releasing their second album this coming April. Specifically, April 16th is set as the international release date of Masters Of Perplexity. I can’t find a link confirming that, so take my word for it. Keep an eye out for a new track, which we should expect later this week.
Dang, we have another band ending a 25 year hiatus. UK doom crew Enchantment are releasing a new album, comprised of material that was originally written for a 1994/1995 sophomore effort, through Transcending Obscurity and Cosmic Key Creations. More details coming soon…
Did you shower your Valentine with all the good stuff yesterday? Call your mom? How about gift some grindcore or doom or death metal? No? WTF! If the answer was no to any of those, literally no one cares so you’re good. Anyway, new week means new metal and we’ve got plenty of it, so maybe a late gift?….haha. Kidding. Kicking things off in play low and play slow style are the Polish quartet Dopelord with a smokin’ new EP—see what I did there—that really has me in its grasp, next up is a bone cruncher of blackened-deathgrind from Gravesend, following that is a proggy death metal come psychedelic ambient number from The Lylat Continuum, and last up top is Harakiri For The Sky with their new full length that weaves post-everything and a pinch of black and folk metal—it hasn’t tripped my trigger yet, but maybe your mileage will be better. We’ve got all that and a ton more, so get to digging.
Darkthrone is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Soulside Journey with an incredible new boxset, which they’re calling Shadows Of Iconoclasm. That will be out on April 2nd through Peaceville Records, and can be pre-ordered here. Definitely read up on it, because there is a ton included in that package.
We’re going to wrap up the day (and possibly the week, at least personally) with a new one from Årabrot. This is the first track taken from the recently announced new album, Norwegian Gothic. That drops on April 9th through Pelagic Records. “The Lie” is available for your streaming pleasure below.
So this is different and definitely worth a few minutes of time.Members of Archspire have launched an online cooking show? It’s called Good Morning Handsome, and you can check out episode 1, “Friends With Benny’s”, right now.
Harakiri For The Sky released a new single today, with accompanying drum playthrough. “I’m All About the Dusk” is, of course, taken from Mӕre, which is now set for a February 19th release through AOP Records.
And we’ll close with a video from The Amenta for “An Epoch Ellipsis”, a track taken from Revelator. That album drops on February 19th through Debemur Morti Productions. Get your pre-order on over at their Bandcamp link.
