I just got infinitely more excited about seeing The Ocean next week.
When The Lion’s Daughter covered Judas Priest as part of their Turbo Covers EP, it went over pretty damn well. So, to celebrate their take on “Turbo Lover” becoming available across streaming platforms, they dropped a lyric video for the track.
Armored Saint are re-issuing three classics through Metal Blade Records. March Of The Saint, Delirious Nomad, and Raising Fear will be out on April 15th. Those we released back in 1984, 1985, and 1987 respectively, and have been out of print for some time. So this is a cool thing.
In other re-issue news, Cannabis Corpse are putting The Weeding EP back on vinyl. Originally released in 2009, the new pressing will be available on April 22nd through Season of Mist, and is available for pre-order here.
Terzij De Horde is popular around Nine Circles, so here’s a new track titled “Cheiron”. In One of These, I Am Your Enemy is out on April 8th through Consouling Sounds and Tartarus Records, depending on your preferred physical format.
Sure, we can wrap up with some new Watain. Here’s the lyric video for “Serimosa”, the second track taken from The Agony & Ecstasy Of Watain. That’s out on April 29th through Nuclear Blast.
I don’t even know where to begin with how annoyed I am… but at least there’s a lot going on today.
Starting with Amorphis, who are returning to North America in April and May with Sylvaine and Hoaxed. Of course, they’ll be supporting Halo, which drops on February 11th through Atomic Fire. Tickets for the tour go on sale this coming Friday here.
The obvious choice is to close with some Abbath. Details surrounding the new album have finally been revealed. Dread Reaver is set for a March 25th release through Season of Mist, and the video for the first single, “Dream Cull”, is available below.
In case you didn’t notice, we’re big fans of the new Worm record around these parts.
We’ll kick Friday off with Earthless, who have announced some early 2022 tour dates. Tickets went on sale today for their run of 10 dates that beginning on January 27th in Los Angeles and end February 8th in Phoenix.
Can’t find a way to attend Knotfest Los Angeles? Well, you’re in the luck. The performance will be streamed live, taking place on November 5th, and tickets can be purchased here. As far as Slipknot goes, this is their first ever live stream, and the footage will be available for an additional 72 hours after the show.
Massacre is always the right way to close a week. Side note: I’m only just now appreciating how incredible their logo is. Anyway, check out the gnarly new clip for “Return of the Corpse Grinder” below. The uncensored version was understandably banned from YouTube, but you can peep that here if you feel up to it. Resurgence is out now on Nuclear Blast.
All That Remains are celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Fall of Ideals with a reissue. It’s set to release on November 12th on vinyl, with an accompanying tour and documentary. Pre-order it here. Side note: I can’t stand anything ATR these days for a number of reasons, but this album fucks.
And we’ll wrap up the day with a new video and live album announcement from Armored Saint. Symbol of Salvation Livewill be out on October 22nd through Metal Blade, and the live clip for the title track can be found below. Enjoy.
Alright, after a some time off I think I’m finally getting the wheels turning again. Not at work, of course. But everywhere else, for sure.
This is from last week, but since I can’t get enough of Insomnium I’m going to share it anyway. The Finnish melodic death metal legends announced a new EP, Argent Moon, which is set for a September 17th release through Century Media. In conjunction, they also dropped a new track and video titled “The Antagonist”. Personally, I love the melancholy vibe of the last few singles I’ve heard. This band can do no wrong.
Bastardur, the crust punk project from Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), has officially signed on with Season of Mist and announced new album details. Satan’s Loss of Son will be out on October 29th, and you can preview what’s to come with the new single titled “Viral Tumor”.
Let’s close out a very weird day with the new single and video from Mono, who I love dearly. This track it titled “Riptide”, which is taken from Pilgrimage of the Soul. That album is set for a September 17th release through Pelagic Records.
