A little late today, but a lot of stuff happened that I felt like sharing. Aka easy content.
- Batushka, who have been dealing with their share of drama in recent months, announced that their next effort, titled Hospodi, will be out on July 12th. It’s funny, before all the drama, I never really knew who was in Batushka. Now that all of that has subsided… I still don’t.
- Weedeater is doing some more touring in the United States. We got a very limited run shows at the end of May and early June in the mid-Atlantic-ish.
- Summer Slaughter 2019, featuring Cattle Decapitation. Hot damn. I haven’t attended a Summer’s Laughter in a few years, but maybe things will change in 2019?
- Sólstafir, a group I adore but haven’t mentioned in a little while, released a new music video for “Bláfjall” today. The track is featured on Berdreyminn, which dropped back in 2017.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Tuesday has no feel.
- Swallow The Sun have announced their next album, When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light, will be out January 25th, 2019 through Century Media. A new track titled “Lumina Aurea” will be headed your way next month.
- Dave Grohl is a good human, for those not previously aware. He made a stop at Fire Station 68 in Calabasas to serve up some barbeque to show appreciation for those helping fight the insane California fires. Again, good human.
- Coheed & Cambria are going to hit the road in early 2019. All U.S. dates. Get on that if that’s your thing. It’s not mine.
- Alternative metal group Burden of the Sky have released a new music video for “The Puppeteer”. The track is featured from their upcoming sophomore release, due out sometime next year.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”

What album grabbed you last week? And I mean, really grabbed hold and wouldn’t let go? One, several, all? Well, just as you thought it was safe to keep listening to that or those, here we have a whole new list of metal to sink your teeth into. It’s what we do, you’re welcome. Enough small talk, there’s much to get to. What, you ask? Keep reading…
If you ride with #ArchgoatArmy – and you should – you’re in for a treat since they’re back with The Luciferian Crown which turns over more of their hypnotic groove but never lays off the twisted black / death we’ve come to know and love. Deicide’s Satan loving might be a tad blasé but with Overtures of Blasphemy they prove that after nearly thirty years they can still make some damn good death metal. Switching gears a bit with black metal and violins (yes, you read that right) is Alma from Windfaerer and on this, their third full length, the folk aspect and black metal are a perfect marriage. One more switch up before I officially unleash you on the rest of the list: Mankind Woman from Brant Bjork is some damn sweet desert rock that recalls the early days of the genre he helped to build but combines all his talents under one roof and the album is phenomenal because of it.
NOW you are officially unleashed. Enjoy. Continue reading
