“To truly understand the essence of antiquity, learn the lore of the land. Become the atavist. Embark on a journey through the aeons of time.”

  • The Ocean have unveiled new details behind the release of Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic, which will be out on September 25th through Metal Blade and Pelagic Records. You can also listen to a new track, titled “Jurassic | Cretaceous”, and this may come as a surprise, but it’s really friggin’ good.
  • Emma Ruth Rundle dropped a new track today called “Staying Power”. This one was actually recorded during the On Dark Horses sessions, but wasn’t released until now. It can be purchased at this location, if you feel so inclined.
  • Saor has announced reissues of Roots and Aura through Season of Mist. The release dates are scheduled for August 21st and September 11th, respectively. They can be pre-ordered now at this location.
  • And we will close with this new video from Psycroptic for “Beyond The Black”. That one is taken from the 2018 album, As The Kingdom Drowns, available through Prosthetic Records.
