These work days are only a little bit fun. Which, I guess, is why my nights are spent doing this?
Break out the drinking horns. Amon Amarth has a new album on the horizon. The Great Heathen Army is out on August 5th through Metal Blade. And yes, we do have new material to share along with that news. Give “Get in the Ring” a listen here.
Symphonic metal veterans Stratovarius are also releasing a new album later this year, their first is almost a decade. Survive is set for a September 23rd through earMusic, and the title track can be heard now.
Out of Nuclear Blast, Massacre has announced a new EP. That’s generally a good thing, because more Massacre is always the correct amount. Anyway, Mythos is out on July 1st. Check out “Behind The Serpent’s Curse”, which features Anders Odden of Cadaver, right now.
New Cloak dates have been added to their 2022 schedule. These are June and July dates with Bewitcher, and you can get the full scoop here.
And we’re going to wrap up with the video for the new single from Municipal Waste titled “Electrified Brain”. That’s the title track from their new album, which drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.
At least it’s finally nice out and stuff. Mondays still suck.
It looks as though Cloak is going to spend most of 2022 on the road, and that is good news for all of us. Following their current run with Acid Witch, they’ll embark on a brief tour with Bewitcherin June and July. No dates near me, unfortunately.
Each week seems to be slightly weirder than the last.
Midnight has their new album out today, Let There Be Witchery, so we’ll lead off with the new video for “Szex Witchery”. It’s a lot of fun, I promise. Anyway, their fifth full-length is out through Metal Blade, just in case you still need it.
There’s also a new album coming from Somali Yacht Club on April 22nd, titled The Space. Their third full-length will mark their debut through Season of Mist. The first single, Silver, is available for your listening pleasure here.
All That Remains are celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Fall of Ideals with a reissue. It’s set to release on November 12th on vinyl, with an accompanying tour and documentary. Pre-order it here. Side note: I can’t stand anything ATR these days for a number of reasons, but this album fucks.
And we’ll wrap up the day with a new video and live album announcement from Armored Saint. Symbol of Salvation Livewill be out on October 22nd through Metal Blade, and the live clip for the title track can be found below. Enjoy.
