And, of course, we’re going to close with the latest from Gaerea. Check out the video for “Mirage” below, the title-track from their upcoming new album. That release is one I have circled, and it’s set for September 23rd through Season of Mist.
These work days are only a little bit fun. Which, I guess, is why my nights are spent doing this?
Break out the drinking horns. Amon Amarth has a new album on the horizon. The Great Heathen Army is out on August 5th through Metal Blade. And yes, we do have new material to share along with that news. Give “Get in the Ring” a listen here.
Symphonic metal veterans Stratovarius are also releasing a new album later this year, their first is almost a decade. Survive is set for a September 23rd through earMusic, and the title track can be heard now.
Out of Nuclear Blast, Massacre has announced a new EP. That’s generally a good thing, because more Massacre is always the correct amount. Anyway, Mythos is out on July 1st. Check out “Behind The Serpent’s Curse”, which features Anders Odden of Cadaver, right now.
New Cloak dates have been added to their 2022 schedule. These are June and July dates with Bewitcher, and you can get the full scoop here.
And we’re going to wrap up with the video for the new single from Municipal Waste titled “Electrified Brain”. That’s the title track from their new album, which drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.
At least it’s finally nice out and stuff. Mondays still suck.
It looks as though Cloak is going to spend most of 2022 on the road, and that is good news for all of us. Following their current run with Acid Witch, they’ll embark on a brief tour with Bewitcherin June and July. No dates near me, unfortunately.
We can start with a new tour announcement, featuring Bewitcher and Nite. Those dates out west run through April, kicking off on the 17th in Boise. Tickets can be purchased here.
Danish collective Slaegt unveiled a new lyric video for “Deceived By An Amethyst” (technically Friday, I believe), which you can watch here. That’s a track taken from their new album, Goddess, which is out now through Century Media.
Why yes, we will close with the new video from Cradle of Filth. Taken from Existence Is Futile, check out the clip for “How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose?” below. That video premiered as part of their “Infernal Vernal Equinox Deadstream”, and now it’s available to everyone, which is cool.
Happy Darkthrone Day! See also: Happy Amenra Day! See also: Happy Friday! (Thank Hell)
Speaking of Amenra, since today marked the official release of their debut with Relapse Records, De Doorn, we’ll kick things off with their new music video for “Ogentroost”. I guess that marks the first in a series of new visualizers for that album, with another one set for a week from now. That’s cool!
This has the potential to be massive. Between The Buried And Me have announced a new album, Colors II, which is set for an August 20th release through Sumerian Records. And if this is meant to be a sequel to Colors, something I will definitely assume right now, that is absolutely incredible. Check out a new track titled “Fix The Error” right now.
Fans of Matt Pike (see also: everyone) should be intrigued by his book announcement, Head On A Pike: The Illustrated Lyrics of Matt Pike. That is scheduled for a worldwide release on November 9th, with signed limited editions available at this location.
I guess we can toss a tour in the mix. Bewitcher and Enforced are joining Exhumed and Creeping Death on the “Worming Through America” fall tour. Those dates fall in October and November, and tickets are available now at this location.
We’ll close the week with Aborted, who released the first single and video from ManiaCult. That album drops on September 10th through Century Media, but you can check out the wild visualizer for “Impetus Odi” below. Viewer discretion is advised… apparently.
