So let’s recap. I skipped the news round-up yesterday because… life, and I’m drafting it before I’ve even finished my coffee today because I’ll be on the road all afternoon. Fun times, indeed.
We’ll start with Mortiferum. Their sophomore release will be titled Preserved In Torment, and it is set for a November 5th release through Profound Lore. A few of us at the site are really excited about this news. Check out the first single, “Eternal Procession, right now.
It’s been a minute since we’ve checked in on DragonForce, so let’s close out the week with the new video from them for “Troopers of the Stars”, taken from 2019’s Extreme Power Metal. Quite the vibe these dudes are throwing out these days.
Atreyu has also announced a fairly massive U.S. tour this coming November and December. They’ll be supported by Tetrarch, Crown The Empire, Saul, and Defying Decay. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday, but there’s always a pre-sale code for those that want it.
Ok, getting back on track for the rest of week. Something like that.
The highly anticipated sophomore release from Crown, The End Of All Things, is steadily approaching. Today, they released the new single, “Shades”. The official release date is set for April 16th, through Pelagic Records, with pre-orders also available at that link. I’m definitely excited about this one.
Atreyu news for anyone that might be interested. Today they released two new tracks, “Warrior” and “Underrated”, the former of which features Travis Barker, which is pretty cool. Of course, those releases also came with a new album announcement. Baptize will be out on June 4th through Spinefarm Records, and pre-orders are already up.
For those planning on checking out Roadburn Redux, and you should, another slew of bands was announced today. The list includes Primitive Man, Mizmor, Wayfarer, and more. Here’s some more info, if you need it.
And we’ll close with a new video clip from The Amenta for “Psoriastasis”. Revelator is out now through Debemur Morti Productions. Dang, solid roundup today…
I find myself residing in central Appalachia this week.
Atreyu have announced a couple of streaming events on November 20th and December 4th. The first will be a greatest hits set and the second will feature Lead Sails Paper Anchor in full. Tickets available here.
