May 18, 2017

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, Morbid Angel frontman Steve Tucker has indicated that the band will not be playing any David Vincent-era songs on their upcoming tour dates. That “whoosh” you just heard was my already-limited interest in seeing them at MDF nosediving even more.

Isn’t that lovely?

CANTO: New Windhand tuneage, new Rockstar Mayhem suckage, and more!

windhand band

Late today. Oh well, these things happen when Corey’s at a movie and I’m coming from a work event. So enough explanation—here’s what we missed in the metal world today:

  • Windhand dropped a new song today! “Two Urns” marks the first glimpse of the band’s upcoming album, Grief’s Eternal Flower. September 18 can’t get here soon enough.
  • In case you somehow, for whatever reason, were still down to support the annual Rockstar Mayhem Festival, here’s another reason to reevaluate your life.
  • Former Megadeth guitarist (and current Japanese TV game show host) Marty Friedman is coming back to the States! For a tour at least—his first in 12 years! This should be neat.
  • The latest “Metal by Numbers” post is out at Metal Insider, and I’ve gotta say, it’s nice seeing such solid debuts from Failure, Refused and Jungle Rot. August Burns Red, on the other hand, can go fuck themselves.
  • This Iron Maiden body paint photo is the amazing bit of Internet we never knew we wanted.
  • Finally, Quebecois tech-deathsters Beyond Creation released a new video for their song, “Fundamental Process.” Check it out here:

As you can see in the description, the video was filmed during a recent live set in NYC. Studio at Webster? That’s gotta be it, right? Oh well, I’ll stop my nerding-out. That’ll do it for today. Check back tomorrow for the usual!

Keep it heavy,

Just the Tip: October 28’s New Releases in Brief

It’s new release Tuesday! Here’s what we’ll be checking out on this week’s episode:

October 28, 2014

Devin Townsend – Z² (HevyDevy)

At the Gates – At War With Reality (Century Media)

Of course, we’re also omitting a whole boatload of new releases from bands like Obituary, Anaal Nathrakh, and Beyond Creation, among others. But if we’re being honest, these are the two we’ve had on our calendars for the longest, and we plan on discussing them both at great length–greater than would allow for further albums to be included on the podcast this time out. We’ll come back to them if/when we get a slow week in the future. For now, though, take a listen to these and check back later this week for our thoughts in Episode 27!

Quickies: Satan Pizza! I guess there’s other stuff, too…

God DAMMIT I am jacked up today. So… here are some words:

Apparently this is a Slayer pizza. I think I speak for everyone when I say that… it shouldn’t be. It should be Satan pizza. Either way, all the want!
