Jumping over to Century Media, Orthodox shared a new clip for “Cave In”. (See, I told you there were a lot of videos today.) Anyway, that’s taken from Learning To Dissolve, which drops on August 19th.
I absolutely love Wayfarer and cannot wait to see them at Fire In The Mountains in a little over a week, so we’re going to wrap up the day with their new music video for “Fire & Gold”. That track, of course, is taken from A Romance With Violence, which is out through Profound Lore.
We’ll wrap up Monday with the traditional heavy metal collective out of Portland, Mamorlis. Sturdy as an Oak is out independently on March 8th, and you can pre-order it on cassette here. Check out the first single from that, “Wolfric the Wild”, right below.
In terms of hours, I’ve already worked well over a full week. Who says 4 day/40 hour work weeks can’t be a thing?
Let’s start with Mutoid Man, who have announced a new bassist, as well as a performance at Psycho Las Vegas. The power trio will be rounded out by Jeff Matz (High On Fire), which is awesome. That Psycho Las Vegas set, by the way, takes place this coming Friday on the main stage.
I’m not sure if anyone has familiarized themselves with AEW’s Malakai Black, but you should. The artist formerly known as Aleister Black (with WWE) not only uses Amenra as his introductory song, but has now also teamed up with Carnifex for a merch collaboration. Check it out.
And we’re going to close with one of my personal favorites, Churchburn. Their new album, Genocidal Rite, drops on November 5th through Translation Loss Records, and today they released a new track and music video. Check out the clip for “Swallowed By Dust” below.
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.
