Good morning weekend warriors. On this edition of our Saturday morning mixtape we have a slew of new singles from Feminazgûl, Wolves in the Throne Room, Deafheaven, Lantlôs, and more. Plus, we’ve got a twenty-three minute jam care of our own Anton, some doom, and even the requisite screamo jam. Tune in down below.
It seems a lot of metal bands these days enjoy playing with subgenres and creating hybrid sounds. I love the creativity of these groups and their courage to explore the space and make something unique. Australia’s Empress is one of those experimental bands and their latest release, Wait ‘Til Night, is an alluring combination of shoegaze, doom, indie, post-metal, and black metal. This album is dark yet delicate, haunting, and dreamy. The band’s signature sound is fine tuned in this, their sophomore album.
Full disclosure here: as good a weather as we had this weekend and as much time as I spent out in it, I do not want today to be Monday. But, time marches on and so does the laborious task of a new week. Anyway, we’ve got a fresh batch of tunes for you to digest and pair with whatever coffee you have flowing this morning. As usual, the tastes are all over the place but that’s what makes these enjoyable. And honestly, who can’t use a little joy on a Monday?! Subscribe to our YouTube channel here so you don’t miss a thing and stay tuned later today for a giveaway from a band we’re excited about. Head inside. Listen. Guzzle coffee. Headbang at your desk. You’re welcome. Continue reading →
