Welcome back one and all to another weekly mixtape installment. On deck this Saturday (uh, Sunday…sorry!) morning, we have a smattering of Ulver for you, some Sun Kil Moon, an appropriately themed cut from Siouxsie and the Banshees, plus a ton more at the link below. Thanks as always for tuning in.
We’ll close with a new lyric video from Hecate Enthroned for “Plagued By Black Death”, which is taken from the reissue of 2013’s Virulent Rapture. That one drops this Friday (yep, that’s still September 25th).
Welcome again to our Saturday morning playlist series. This week, we’ve got a truckload of good death metal for you including a new single from Dark Tranquillity, some prog/folk/rock courtesy of Little Tybee, and some classic Beastie Boys for good measure. All this and more of what we’ve been listening to in our off hours down below.
Katatonia have announced a new live album as well, titled Dead Air. This is a physical release of their livestream performance from earlier in the year. It will be out through Peaceville Records on November 13th, and can be pre-ordered here.
Mastodon released a collection of rare tracks digitally for the first time today, known as Medium Rarities. Here’s the link to scoop that up. As a bonus, it includes a brand new song as well, titled “Fallen Torches”.
Looks like Hatebreed are dropping their first album in a minute. Weight of the False Self will be out on November 27th through Nuclear Blast. A lyric video for the title-track can be viewed immediately below. Pre-order it here, if you’re feeling it.
Founding guitarist Niklas Sundin is stepping away from Dark Tranquillity. You can read his full post here, but it basically sounds like he wants to trade touring duties for family time, which I understand. It does sound like he will stay involved from a creative standpoint, which is pretty cool.
Snow Burial are planning a live stream to benefit The Greater Chicago Food Depository. The event will take place on March 26th at 8:00pm EST over at the Prosthetic Records Youtube Channel. Cool event, cool cause, we all win.
