I don’t even know where to begin with today’s updates!
Yes I do. It’s Deafheaven. All the details we were looking for regarding a new album are with us now. Infinite Granite will be out on August 20th through Sargent House, and can be pre-ordered here. Better yet, you can check out the first new track from that album, “Great Mass of Color”, through either YouTube or Bandcamp.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about the new Dornenreich album, Du wilde Liebe sei, but I haven’t checked anything out myself yet. That will change today with the release of “Das Sehnen von Mond und Sonne”, available for streaming here. That album is out this coming Friday through Prophecy.
And we’ll close with the new video from Behemoth, a band I don’t mention nearly as much as I used to. It’s for “Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha”, which is taken from last year’s EP, A Forest. Check it out below.
Behemoth are reissuing one their best works, Evangelion, on vinyl through Metal Blade Records. The official release is June 11th, and there a couple different variants available. Pre-order that one here.
French black metallers Seth have released a new song and video, commemorating the anniversary of the Notre Dame fire, titled “Les Océans du Vide!”. That’s taken from La morsure du Christ, which is out on May 7th through Season of Mist. Check out the video right here.
And finally, as I was saying, new Gojira is obviously the most important news of the day. Fortitude drops on April 30th, and can be pre-ordered here. Below you’ll find the clip for the new track, “Born For One Thing”, which brings all the riffs.
Nightfall shared a live performance of “Ishtar (Celebrate your Beauty)”, with footage taken from the Sierra studios in Athens. Give it a watch. Worth noting, that track is taken from 1995’s Athenian Echoes, which is getting the reissue treatment from Season of Mist at some point in the near future. Dope.
Behemoth have also announced In Absentia Dei, an immersive live stream event that will take place on September 5th. The performance will be held at a secret church in Poland and feature special guests Imperial Triumphant… but they’ll be in NYC.
