Scrambling to get this done because why the hell not?
So everyone needs to spend a lot of money on Bandcamp next week. There’s a Juneteenth fundraiser next Friday, the 18th, where 100% of Bandcamp shares are going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Do it. Do it. Do it. I already have plenty lined up… obviously.
Weedeater have announced a U.S. tour this coming August. Support will be in the form of Joe Buck Yourself and Adam Faucett, and the party starts August 20th in Ashville. Tickets can be accessed at this link.
Machine Head greeted us with a new 3-track digital single today, Arrows In Words From The Sky, and you stream some of that here. That is also brought to us by Nuclear Blast.
And we should certainly wrap things up with the new Pain music video for “Party In My Head”, which is a vibe I can 100% fuck with. No word on new Hypocrisy things, but I do like me somePeter Tägtgren activity all the same. That’s also on the various streaming platforms.
As we quickly approach the official release date for Chinook, the impressive sophomore effort from Canadian black metal collective SVNEATR, it is our pleasure to premiere the new video for “The Consequence of Fear.” A leap forward from 2018’s The Howl, the Whisper, the Hunt, Chinook offers a brilliantly complex take on the genre, and this couldn’t be more evident than what’s contained within the passages of “The Consequence of Fear.” But don’t take my word for it. Give it a watch and listen immediately below. The video, by the way, is equally as awesome.
Southern Lord has announced a limited edition reissue of The Art of Self Defense. The repressing of the High On Fire studio debut will be out at the end of March, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp or Southern Lord.
Bewitcher released a new video for “Mystifier (White Night City)”, a track taken from their upcoming new album, Cursed Be Thy Kingdom. That album drops on April 16th through Century Media Records, and can be pre-ordered here.
The Crown are returning in 2021 with a new album. Set for a March 12th release, Royal Destroyer will be available through Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available here, as well as the new single “Motordeath”.
The Sword have also returned with a new track, kind of. It’s a live performance of “The Warp Riders”, taking from the 2010 album, Warp Riders. It was recorded as part of their Conquest of Quarantine lockdown sessions. Give it a watch right here.
Solbrud are releasing an audio/visual live album on Marth 26th through Eisenwald, titled Levende I Brønshøj Vandtårn. If you want to end your day with some pretty wild black metal, check out this clip for “Øde Lagt” below.
