Late night canto because fucking everything is annoying right now.
Fires in the Distance and Dawn of Ouroboros announced a run of live dates this coming October, titled The Perseverance of Light tour. Alas, nothing anywhere near me, but here’s the full schedule for those that can make it happen.
Nuclear Power Trio announced a new album, Wet Ass Plutonium. Their sophomore album will be out on July 28 through Metal Blade, and a video for “Nyetflix and Chill” can be seen directly below. I’m entertained.
I’ll see myself out with a couple of Nuclear Blast things. First, Arrival of Autumnreleased a music video for “Ghosts”, the second single taken from Kingdom Undone. That album is out May 26.
And then, as I depart for a long weekend, we have an offering from Malevolence. Check out the music video for “Waste Of Myself” below, taken from The Aggression Sessions. That collection is out through Nuclear blast on CD and vinyl on July 21. Catch ya Wednesday.
Once again, beer got in the way of clearing the inbox on a Friday night. So Saturday morning it is!
Let’s start off with some blackened deathcore. Mélancolia announced their debut album, HissThroughRottenTeeth, which is scheduled for an April 21 release through Greyscale Records and Nuclear Blast Records. Give “[Inure]” a listen here.
Next, we’ll jump over to Killing Joke. They released a brand new single, “Full Spectrum Dominance”, which comes in celebration of their sold out headlining show at Royal Albert Hall on March 12. That’s available through Spinefarm, and can be heard here.
Holy shit, it’s Winger! To celebrate 35 years, they’re releasing Seven on May 5. Their first new release since 2014 can be pre-ordered here, and be sure to check out “Proud Desperado” while you’re at it.
Sometimes it takes something simple like, say…bullshitting with your friends over (virtual) drinks about a record to reignite your passion for something. Since starting these Album RAMBLES I’ve been listening to more metal than I have in ages, and In Flames in particular, so since I’m still so hot on new album Forgone we’re gonna bookend the 270th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist with the two parts of the title track.
But that’s not all (it never is, is it?): we’ve got some classic All Out War and Turbonegro (we don’t talk enough about Turbonegro) and then the walls come down with new cuts from Dawn of Ouroboros, Wallowing, Dying Fetus, Distant, Torn in Half, Insomnium, Stormo, Blaze of Sorrow, some old and cold Sacramentum, and more. We’ve also sprinkled in some lighter fare with cuts from Elliot Smith, Channing Wilson and midwife to give your nerves a small break.
Hey! I bought concert tickets today! For a show… in August.
Fresh off the release of Dying of Everything, Obituary have announced a North American headlining tour this coming April and May. They’ll be joined by Blood Incantation, Immolation, and Ingrown. So, yeah, a stacked bill for sure. Tickets will be available here.
Enslaved unveiled another track from Heimdal, titled “Forest Dweller”. Check out the video for that one here. As a reminder (which I’m sure you don’t need), their new album drops on March 3rd through Nuclear Blast.
Tribulation have revealed details surrounding a new EP, titled Hamartia, which will be out on April 7th through Century Media. With that, a video for a new track titled “Axis Mundi” can be seen below. Worth noting, this is the first composition by new guitarist Joseph Tholl. Personally, I like it. It’s a little different, but not in a bad way.
