CANTO: Anomalie, Brand of Sacrifice, Abhoria, and More

After this, I get to write about music and alcohol at the same time!

  • Brand of Sacrifice dropped a reissue of the title track from their most recent album, Lifeblood. The album was released back in March originally, and this version of the track features Will Ramos of Lorna Shore. Give it a listen here.
  • Prosthetic Records have added a new name to their roster in Abhoria. Their self-titled debut album will be out on February 4th. Check out their first single, “Mountebank”, right now.
  • Updates from Bindrune Recordings are always notable. Nechochwen have returned with the title track from their next album, “Kanawha Black”. Give it a listen here. That album should be out sometime next year, so keep your eye out for more updates.
  • I’m a really big fan of the new Anomalie album, Tranceformation, so we’ll close with the new video for the third single from that. Check out “Trance I: The Tree”, and remember to pick that album up, which is out November 26th through AOP Records.

CANTO: SNAFU, Body Void, Brand of Sacrifice, and More

This has been one of the weirdest weeks ever. Oh well. At least hockey is on tonight.

  • Detroit hardcore/thrash crew SNAFU are releasing their sophomore effort, Exile//Banishment, on March 26th through Life After Death Records. You can pre-order that and check out the first single, “Choking Game”, through Bandcamp. I’ve already done both. Go Red Wings.
  • Blackened doom duo Body Void have signed on with Prosthetic Records and are releasing their debut through that label on April 23rd, titled Bury Me Beneath This Rotting Earth. Here’s the pre-order link, and a new track titled “Wound” is streaming over at Metal Injection.
  • A couple videos today, and I’m in a sludge mood, so here’s something new I found in the inbox that I’ve been vibing with. This is the latest clip from Aulnes, a collective based out of Quebec, for “Vivre dans l’abandon”. That’s the title-track from last year’s release, which can be scooped up here.
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Brand of Sacrifice for “Altered Eyes”. That’s a new single taken from Lifeblood, which is set for a March 5th release through Blood Blast Distribution.

Embracing the Descent: June 30 – July 6, 2019

EMBRACING TEMP LOGO

Welcome back to another edition of Embracing the Descent. Miss us? Rhetorical question of course. It has been a minute so as a refresher or if it’s your first visit, we briefly discuss a handful of this week’s new releases that stood out for whatever reason and maybe, from time to time, a week behind. We won’t be hitting everything because a 40 – 60 entry piece ain’t happening and seriously, who’s got that kind of time. Head below to see what’s got our knickers in a bunch and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent. Continue reading
