The good news is that I’m only a couple of days away from being caught up on photos.
Let’s start with Krisiun, something I’m fairly excited about. The Brazilian death metal trio are releasing a new studio album on July 29th through Century Media titled Mortem Solis. Check out the first new material from that album, “Serpent Messiah”, right now.
Black metal/synthwave project Nighted, which features Ivo Henzi(ex-Eluveitie, Cellar Darling), shared their third single, titled “Nighted”. Check it out here, and get ready for the release of their debut album, Absence. More information to come, I’m sure.
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.
Silver Lake by Esa Holopainen was recently released through Nuclear Blast. I haven’t checked it out in full yet, but I am intrigued by the new video for “Sentiment”, a track which features Jonas Renkse on vocals. And we all know how much I love projects that involve the Katatonia vocalist…
So we’ll pause all the video announcements to include a note about Hellfest 2022, which is probably the most immense festival I could fathom. The festival will span a full week, from June 17th through the 26th, with over 350 bands performing across 6 stages. Headliners include… Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, Faith No More… honestly the list goes on and on. And those are just the headliners. Get the full scoop here.
