You know the drill by now and you also know we’ve missed a couple weeks. Oops. Anyway, we take a look at a couple, or more, albums from this week’s crop of new releases that struck a chord for whatever reason. The looks here are short and sweet but might help slide your hard earned cash one way or another. We’re here to be a blessing. Maybe. Dive in and if something strikes a chord with you, please go support it by simply clicking the links in the embeds. Or, visit Monday’s Initial Descent. Easy-peasy.Continue reading →
Last week I randomly ran across a quote that made me almost split my sides laughing. Monday’s are for pick-me-ups so I’m sharing: “Some people just need a high five. In the face. With a chair.” Ever since, I’ve tried to keep track of how many people I run across that this would apply to and I’m into double digits so far. It’s a fun game, you should try it. Anyway, new metal? Absolutely. What exactly? Follow along…
Atmospheric and highly emotional black metallers Clouds Collide return with a juggernaut of an album and we got a track premiere (link below) so hop to it, Sculpted Horror keep the old, dingy death metal crypts righteously infected with their new EP, Cable blast out of a ten plus year silence with a new offering of sludgy, noisy, dirgy anthems just in time for the dog days of summer, and Throes get equally as nasty on their full length debut but with hardcore and post-metal thrown in the mix.
Jump in and explore. And, remember the high fives game. It’ll be our little secret.Continue reading →
Welcome friends to another edition of our love letter to you in audio format. Or maybe that’s a little forward. Consider it a “thanks for being here with us” present. We’ve got a host of good stuff for you today spanning all kinds of genres from video game soundtracks to that new Rammstein everyone’s all agog for. There’s bound to be something for you in here, so dive in and take a look.
It’s been a solid decade or so new material came out from Cable, and I’m proud to say that wait is about to come to an end. Take The Stairs To Hell will be out July 26th through Translation Loss Records. Better yet, we get a new track called “Rivers of Old” right now.
