Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning mixtape series. This week, we’ve got an incredible reworking of a pop music staple by Khemmis’ Ben Hutcherson (subscribe to the man’s Patreon to fund further hijinks), plus some classic Glassjaw, the new music video from Schammasch, and even outlaw country for good measure. Check it out below.
Finally, It’s Halloween week. Not sure what you’ll be doing but as long as it involves horror movies and metal, all will be right in the world for at least a day. Since metal is in the equation, we have a looooong list for this week. So long, in fact, it seems everyone waited for Halloween to push out an album. Good news for us. Anyway, Sarcator open the pit of flayed bodies with their Swedeaththrash and holy smokes is this so crazy good for such a young band—I mean, age 16-21. All that to say, jump on this immediately. And, the mighty Carcass return for a quick hitter EP but quick hitter doesn’t mean slack on quality, it’s Carcass so you know what you’re getting. Stälker put both a classic metal feel and tons of demonspeed in their effort and those vocals? GLORIOUS. Rounding out the top spots is Wolverine who are back with their lush but impressive progressive metal and in audio visual format which is nothing short of amazing so please get your ears, and eyes, on this come Saturday. No matter what you do with Halloween this year, you’ll have plenty of metal to take along for the ride. Just don’t forget to load up on blood and gore as well.
Behemoth have also announced In Absentia Dei, an immersive live stream event that will take place on September 5th. The performance will be held at a secret church in Poland and feature special guests Imperial Triumphant… but they’ll be in NYC.
