I officially live in the mountains… just in time for winter.
Northwest Terror Fest is returning in 2023, and the lineup is pretty darn stacked. Yob, Wormrot, Horrendous, and obviously many more. That festival is set for May 25 through 27 in Seattle, and tickets go on sale this coming Friday. Get the full scoop here.
With Focus turning 30 in 2023, Cynic are paying homage to late members Sean Reinert and Sean Malone, while marking the anniversary of that album, with two special performances. They’ll be performing on the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise, which is set for January 30 through February 3, and then at ProgPower USA on September 6 in Atlanta. These are their first live performances since the passing of Reinert and Malone.
Apparently I only had time to bookend this week. My bad.
Kreator has been busy, releasing Hate Über Alles and then the limited 2LP Live At Bloodstock 2021 in quick succession. So on that note, we should probably open this account with the live clip for “Betrayer” from that performance. Dani Filth makes an appearance, which is fun.
Seventh Storm released Maledictus today, through Atomic Fire, and marked the occasion with the new video for “Gods of Babylon”. This album has been on deck for me to listen to for awhile now… maybe today is the day it finally happens?
Megadeth continues to impress me with what they’ve shared from The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!“Soldier On!” is no exception. The visualizer for the latest sample from that album, which drops on September 2nd, can be found below.
I wasn’t planning on this post today, but work decided to be less shitty than I anticipated so here we are!
Threshold are releasing their 12th full-length album, which will be titled Dividing Lines, on November 18th through Nuclear Blast. Get your first sampling from that album with the new video for “Silenced”.
Abhor is a band that calls back to my early blogging days, so I’m happy to hear about their upcoming new material. Sex Sex Sex (Ceremonia Daemonis Antichristi) will be out on September 23rd through Iron Bonehead. Give “Evil Mentor” a listen here.
Michigan metalcore band Of Virtue are releasing a new EP on August 12th coincidentally also called Sinner. That will be available through Arising Empire, and pre-orders are officially live.
I’ve been listening to Övergivenheten a ton these last few days, so let’s close with the latest from Soilwork. Below is the video for “Dream Of Nowhere”. As a reminder, that album is out on August 19th through Nuclear Blast.
Well folks, this is my last post until at least the 26th, as I will be in Wyoming do mountain man stuff followed by Fire In The Mountains stuff. Be well, and I’ll see ya on the other side.
It’s no mystery that we’re Spirit Adrift fans around here, so closing with their new track is an easy choice. Check out “Mass Formation Psychosis”, taken from the upcoming 20 Centuries Gone. That collection is out on August 19th and will feature two new tracks alongside six covers.
