Silver Lake by Esa Holopainen was recently released through Nuclear Blast. I haven’t checked it out in full yet, but I am intrigued by the new video for “Sentiment”, a track which features Jonas Renkse on vocals. And we all know how much I love projects that involve the Katatonia vocalist…
So we’ll pause all the video announcements to include a note about Hellfest 2022, which is probably the most immense festival I could fathom. The festival will span a full week, from June 17th through the 26th, with over 350 bands performing across 6 stages. Headliners include… Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, Faith No More… honestly the list goes on and on. And those are just the headliners. Get the full scoop here.
My favorite bar is open again and therefore everything is wonderful.
As is always the case on a Friday, we have a whole bunch of new songs and videos to share. So on that note, we will start with Killer Be Killed. Reluctant Hero dropped last November through Nuclear Blast, and today they gave us a new video for “Animus”, a track taken from that album.
And it seems like a good call to wrap up the week with the new single and video from At The Gates. We knew something was brewing (side note: that reminds me it’s time for a beer) for awhile, and this doesn’t disappoint. This is “Spectre of Extinction”, taken from The Nightmare of Being. That album is out July 2nd through Century Media.
This Roadburn Redux keeps getting better. This was somewhat hinted at, but now we have confirmation that there will be a “Pelagic Presents” segment that will feature performances by The Ocean, Crown, Year of No Light, and more. Cannot wait for this.
Tetrarch released a pretty damn heavy new single and video today, titled “Negative Noise”, so we can close with that. That track is taken from Unstable, which is out on April 30th through Napalm Records.
Cattle Decapitation have announced a North American tour with Atheist, Full of Hell, Primitive Man, Author & Punisher, and Vitriol. Some of those names are swapped on certain dates, but either way this is an absolutely massive, massive bill. Dates run from November 22nd through December 22nd.
I want to close with something fun because, again, today was stupid. Here is Wildstreet with “Tennessee Cocaine”. It actually dropped on the 22nd, but didn’t make it into our inbox until today. OH WELL.
