Welcome back to another edition of Embracing the Descent and another opportunity to catch some fire from this week’s incoming metal. At this point we’re pretty sure you got it but for a recap: if it’s your first visit, we briefly discuss a handful of the current week’s new releases that stood out for whatever reason and maybe, from time to time, a week behind. We won’t be hitting everything because a 40 – 60 entry piece ain’t happening and who’s got that kind of time anyway. Let’s jump in and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent. Continue reading
It is Saturday, my friends. Get yourself a cup of your morning beverage of choice and get ready for another of our weekly mixtapes. This week we’ve got a Battle of the Batushkas, a Not Metal band that I think is heavier than a good chunk of metal bands, and a brand new jam from the Florida sons in Torche. Look upon our works, ye mighty, and despair.
A little late today, but a lot of stuff happened that I felt like sharing. Aka easy content.
- Batushka, who have been dealing with their share of drama in recent months, announced that their next effort, titled Hospodi, will be out on July 12th. It’s funny, before all the drama, I never really knew who was in Batushka. Now that all of that has subsided… I still don’t.
- Weedeater is doing some more touring in the United States. We got a very limited run shows at the end of May and early June in the mid-Atlantic-ish.
- Summer Slaughter 2019, featuring Cattle Decapitation. Hot damn. I haven’t attended a Summer’s Laughter in a few years, but maybe things will change in 2019?
- Sólstafir, a group I adore but haven’t mentioned in a little while, released a new music video for “Bláfjall” today. The track is featured on Berdreyminn, which dropped back in 2017.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
First Canto of 2019! Hope you all enjoyed the holiday season! Just kidding. No I don’t.
