I worked today when nobody else did apparently. But hey, at least I head to Cali on Friday.
Let’s start with Fire In The Mountains, who announced the final lineup today. The last additions include the likes of Emma Ruth Rundle, Hexvessel, The Otolith, and Helen Money. Needless to say, an incredibly lineup just got even better. Can. Not. Wait.
And then we’ll jump over to Symphony X, who announced the supporting artists on their upcoming North America tour. They’ll be joined by Haken and Trope. That tour starts on May 10th and runs through June 12th. Tickets go on sale this week.
Lots of tour news today apparently. And the next announcement comes from Undeath, who have a U.S. headlining tour coming in November. It’s a small run of shows, but covers some decent ground on this side of the country. Get your tickets here.
Carnation have announced a new live album, The Galaxy Sessions, which drops on January 7th through Season of Mist. With that news, they also revealed the clip for “Reincarnation”, which we will wrap up this Monday with. Check it out below.
Happy Tuesday, all. Had to take yesterday evening off to get stabbed with a needle. Yay!
Transcending Records will be issuing limited edition vinyl pressings of Samael classics Rebellion and Eternal. Originally released in 1995 and 1999 respectively, these offerings will be available on May 28th in a few different variants. Pre-order them right here.
Cirith Ungol got right back to work following the release of Forever Black just last year. A new EP, titled Half Past Human, is also set for a May 28th release through Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders can be snagged here, and the new single, “Brutish Manchild”, is available for streaming as well.
Carnation have announced “The Galaxy Sessions” virtual performance, scheduled for April 18th. The old school death metallers have team up with Belgium’s Galaxy Studio for the event, which is completely free. Here’s the event page for when the time comes.
Crimson Dimension are releasing their self-titled debut album on June 4th through Spread Evil Productions. Check out the new track, “Crimson Dimension”, immediately below. Almost 16 minutes of experimental black metal awesomeness.
Mayhem guitarist Teloch, formally known as Morten Bergeton Iversen, has launched his new synthwave project titled Bergeton. Miami Murder will be out on October 15th, but you can listen to “Lambo” right now.
Sepultura dropped a new video yesterday for “Guardians of the Earth”, a track taken from Quadra, which is out now on Nuclear Blast. That video was created in collaboration with Amazon Frontlines. Check it out.
Let’s start with the lineup changes over in the Machine Head camp. The Robb Flynn-fronted group welcomes new full-timers: drummer Matt Alston and guitarist Vogg Kiełtyka. You can catch them on the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour, if you feel so inclined… and also in Europe.
New music from Vastum! Orificial Purge drops on October 25th through 20 Buck Spin, but you can get a taste through the freshly-released “I On The Knife”. If it wasn’t clear, I’m looking forward to this album.
