But we’ve got more from Insomnium! They debuted a new single, along with a music video, titled “White Christ”. It features Sakis Tolis of Rotting Christ, and yes it’s awesome. Give it a watch and listen below. Anno 1696 is out February 24 through Century Media.
Happy Halloween, IT IS UPON US. I’ve loved this day since being a kid and even though there’s no bag of candy for me come night time, I’ve had a treat bag full of horror movies since the month changed. But really, that’s an all year thing and no excuses needed. My point? There’s not one, ha. Anyway, speaking of horror and new metal releases, we’ve got two extremely well timed picks kicking the week off from Acid Witch and VHS that show just how thin the veil between horror and metal is. Following that we’ve got a banger from Black Anvil, more death metal from Ingested, and many more treats in the list that follows. Why yes, there might be some tricks here too but you’ll have to see for yourself. Be careful out there tonight with all the kiddos wandering around and by all means, watch a horror movie (PSA: Screambox is premiering Terrifier 2 today for those of us that didn’t have the option of a theater viewing and they offer a healthy free trial). Jump below and investigate, we’ll see you here throughout the week.
Black Anvil are keeping the momentum up as we approach the release of Regenesis. They premiered a new track today through Decibel titled “29”, and announced a signature beer with Wake Brewing called the Black Anvil Stout. That sounds… absolutely delicious. Oh, and as a reminder that new album is out on November 4th through Season of Mist.
Aborted have signed on with Nuclear Blast, and have revealed a new single titled “Infinite Terror”. That will be officially released on the 19th, and you can pre-save it here.
And we’ll wrap up our Tuesday with Black Mirrors, and their new music video for “Lost In Desert”. That’s taken from Tomorrow Will Be Without Us, which is set for a November 4th release through Napalm Records.
My work is cut out for me this week. Ladies and gentlemen, today the Brothers Martinek™ celebrate a birthday. Which makes this playlist for them. Which means you’re going to get more Mountain Goats and Broken Social Scene and indie sad alt goodness than either you or I expected or intended.
Don’t worry, though. The others are still around with more extreme offerings…although who’s to say which is more extreme in the context of a metal site’s playlist? Bloodbath or My Bloody Valentine? Rotborn or Ride? Anyway, expect that as well as tracks from A Pregnant Light, Blackbraid, Judicator, Holy Fawn, Cloudrat, Black Anvil, Whitespade, Psionic Madness, Spitpool, Lamentations, as well as a slew of other tracks to kick your weekend off right.
