I’m happy it’s Friday, and I’m happy about all the metal news that emerged today.
And we’ll start with Boris, who unveiled a new video for a live performance of “Loveless”. That track is the lead single from No, which will see a vinyl release through Third Man Records on August 27th.
From there, we’ll check in with MØL. The blackgazers are returning with their second studio album, Diorama, which will be out through Nuclear Blast. Additional details are still to come for that release, but check out the video for new single “Photophobic” right now.
We’ve also got a new track and album announcement from Carnifex to add to the pile. Graveside Confessions will be out on September 3rd through Nuclear Blast. A video for the title track from that album just dropped today, and you can check it out right here.
The obvious way to close out the week is with the latest from Between The Buried And Me. This is the new video for “Revolution In Limbo”, another one taken from Colors II. As a reminder, that album drops on August 20th through Sumerian Records.
Boris are releasing a visual (streaming) party for the release of NO. The viewing period start on May 1st and will run through the 10th. The video was shot with a 360 degree camera, making this thing pretty damn immersive. A tour “in your head”, as it’s described. Here’s the link to the Boris YouTube channel, for when the time comes.
I suppose we can wrap up with some more melodic metal. This is the new video (as of last Friday) from Dead Atlantic for “Falling into the Grave”. That track is taken from Lost, which drops this year through Zombie Shark Records.
Following their 2020 reissues of boris at last -feedbacker- and Absolutego through Third Man Records, Boris are self-releasing live tracks off of each of those albums this coming (Bandcamp) Friday. That’s the first time they will be available digitally, so you know what to do.
Let’s wrap it all up with a new lyric video from Skindred for “It’s A Crime”, which is taken from their upcoming reissue of Roots Rock Riot. That will be available on April, 23rd, so we’re still a couple months out, but you can pre-order it here regardless.
If you’re reading this there are two possibilities at play, either of which warrant a hearty congratulations:
It’s the end of the year, and you found the strength, courage and forbearance to get through the infested muck that was 2020. Congratulations! I don’t know what 2021 will bring, but let’s put the future aside for a moment and just revel in survival, and talk about some great music.
It’s an indeterminate time in the future, after the apocalypse, and the collective hive mind has integrated into the data streams and come across this post in a random search string query to ascertain various data points about the distant past. Congratulations! I’m not alive to know what the Time Lords have in mind for the future, but let’s put that aside for a moment and just revel in whatever constitutes life in your existence, and talk about some great music.
At least the Champions League matches have been entertaining today.
TesseracT have released details for P O R T A L S, a live cinematic experience. That event will take place on December 12th, and will include some pre-show activities as well. You can scoop up a ticket here.
