Eyehategod are celebrating 30 years of Take as Needed for Pain with a U.S. tour where they’ll be accompanied by Goatwhore. Not gonna lie, I would love to get to one of these dates. That run starts on April 8 in Atlanta, and includes a full performance of that album at Decibel Metal & Beer Fest in Philly.
Speaking of tomorrow releases, Delain offered up a new track and video from their new album. Check out “Queen of Shadow” here, and be sure to give Dark Waters a listen tomorrow. That album is available through Napalm.
I gotta get outta here for the night, so let’s wrap things up with a new video from Arch Enemy for “Poisoned Arrow”. That track, of course, is taken from Deceivers, which is out now through Century Media. You can also catch Arch Enemy on tour pretty much everywhere BUT the U.S. over the next several months.
Only video links today. I’m making it happen. Check out the latest from HYPNO5E, in “Lava from the Sky”. Sheol is out on February 24th through Pelagic Records. Speaking of Pelagic, I think 2023 is gonna be pretty massive for the label.
We’ll head into the latter stages of the week with some pagan folk metal. Here is the latest video from Heidevolk for the title-track off their new album, Wederkeer. That one drops on February 24th through Napalm Records.
Sticking with Nuclear Blast for now, Enforcer released a new single today, titled “At The End Of The Rainbow”. That’s a standalone single, but you can pick up Live By Fire II, their latest live album which dropped back in March, right here.
As a way of celebrating Halloween, here’s some fresh stuff from Tombs. They shared a cover of Samhain’s song “The Shift”, through Season of Mist, which can be streamed here.
And we’ll knot up the week with the new video, more of a short film, from Imminence for “Chasing Shadows”. That’s taken from the upcoming new album, Heaven In Hiding, which is out on November 26th through Arising Empire.
Welcome back to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist, guaranteed to wake you up faster than a cup of coffee and a Red Bull combined. Every week we’re bringing you the best of what we’ve been listening to in our spare time, because we know you’re curious about what our staff do with their off-hours. This week, Josh stacks up Cloak and Tribulation side-by-side in a battle of goth-n-roll, Hera combines black metal, melodeath, and Rammstein in a quintessential Hera move, and I throw in a tribute to an artist I’ve long admired who unfortunately passed away this past week, the inimitable Daniel Johnston. Sit down, tune in, and get your weekend started right.
Here’s cool news. Saor have signed on with Season of Mist. This can only lead to great things. It sounds like Andy is already working on new material, so we may not even need to wait that long for those things!
How about Enforcer, since they have a massive North American tour with Warbringer coming up anyway? This track is called “Sail On”.Zenith, is available now worldwide on Nuclear Blast.
Most importantly (to me), is Cult of Luna. The video for “Lay Your Head to Rest” caught my attention today. Oh how I cannot wait for September 20th… that’s when A Dawn to Fear is released. In case you forgot.
