Oh hey, it’s me! Yep, I still have time to do these things sometimes. Like, once in a blue moon. Apparently, nursing school and a complete absence from social media aren’t conducive to consistent metal blogging. Who knew? Anyway, we’re already late on this, so I’ll shut up. Here’s some stuff you might have missed from today:
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from the last few days:
Leading off, an amusing tidbit from the world of Napalm Death: apparently, the band’s Spotify streams have gone up more than 200% since frontman Barney Greenway appeared on a radio show teaching ex-Labour Party leader Ed Miliband how to scream. (Miliband still can’t scream.)
It’s time for Episode 29 of The Horns Up Podcast, your weekly catch-up on all things metal!
This week, the guys discuss the Arch Enemy / Jeff Loomis merger we never knew we wanted, then dig into new albums from Bloodbath, Obituary and “some anal band.” The guys also struggle with the word “archangel” (pronunciation issues, spelling issues, you name it!) and then Corey becomes a man and takes the leap into Spotify Premium!
All that and much, much more on this week’s episode, so check it out!
It’s new release Tuesday! And a bit of a quiet one at that, if we’re being honest. (What a surprise–the post-October 28 hangover is still going strong!) We’ve got one new release on tap this week, but will also be going back and revisiting some of the leftover albums we had from that particularly epic week. So all that said, here’s what we’ll be checking out on the pod this week!
November 18, 2014
Bloodbath – Grand Morbid Funeral (Peaceville)
Anaal Nathrakh – Desideratum (Metal Blade) – from October 28
Obituary – Inked in Blood (Relapse) – from October 28
Take a listen and check back later this week for our thoughts in Episode 29!
