Alright, after a some time off I think I’m finally getting the wheels turning again. Not at work, of course. But everywhere else, for sure.
This is from last week, but since I can’t get enough of Insomnium I’m going to share it anyway. The Finnish melodic death metal legends announced a new EP, Argent Moon, which is set for a September 17th release through Century Media. In conjunction, they also dropped a new track and video titled “The Antagonist”. Personally, I love the melancholy vibe of the last few singles I’ve heard. This band can do no wrong.
Bastardur, the crust punk project from Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), has officially signed on with Season of Mist and announced new album details. Satan’s Loss of Son will be out on October 29th, and you can preview what’s to come with the new single titled “Viral Tumor”.
Let’s close out a very weird day with the new single and video from Mono, who I love dearly. This track it titled “Riptide”, which is taken from Pilgrimage of the Soul. That album is set for a September 17th release through Pelagic Records.
Magnetic Eye Records have announced a live stream event called “The Day of of Doom”, set for May 15th. The event will include performances by Heavy Temple, Domkraft, Howling Giant, and more. Should be a good time. Here’s the event link if you’re interested.
Another June 25th release worth mentioning today comes from Fractal Universe. Their new album, The Impassable Horizon, will be out through Metal Blade Records. For a preview of what’s to come, there’s a new video for “A Clockwork Expectation” within this pre-order link.
In celebration of the None More Black boxset, out through eOne, Black Label Society dropped a new video for “Heart of Darkness”. If you’re interested in that box set, here’s the purchase link. It’s pricey, but if you’re a BLS fan, no doubt it’ll be worth it.
People are a lot more excited about Mudvayne reuniting than I would have expected.
Black Label Society are releasing quite the box set. None More Black, available through Entertainment One, features all 12 full-length albums, a bottle opener, a back patch, a hardcover book… all kinds of good stuff. Got some cash to burn? Here’s that purchase link you obviously need.
