“A hammer not for building, but for breaking the glass. For bending the passion of days to the deeper will.”

  • Enslaved have announced a cinematic summer tour. In coordination with three different festivals, Enslaved will present three different shows on July 30th, August 20th, and September 30th. I plan on witnessing… all of them.
  • Dawn Ray’d are planning a limited edition release of Behold Sedition Plainsong, with proceeds benefiting Refugee Rescue. It will be available this coming Friday through Bandcamp (a day when Bandcamp is also waiving all fees).
  • In case you wanted the full lineup of Record Store Day releases coming our way in a few months, you can find everything here. I’ve got my eye on a couple of things, but we’ll see what happens.
  • We previously shared Ensiferum‘s new track “Rum, Women, Victory”, and now we have a video to accompany it that features fan-submitted content. Thalassic drops on July 10th through Metal Blade Records.

  • Ensiferum have revealed details behind their next album. Thalassic will be out on July 10th through Metal Blade Records. To get a bit of a preview, they also released a new track called “Rum, Women, Victory”, which you can check out right now.
  • Swallow The Sun will be performing a live acoustic show on May 7th (tomorrow) at 1:00 PM EDT. That gig will take place at Sonic Pump Studios, and you can get your access ticket here.
  • I’m really excited about the new album from Paradise Lost, so here’s a fresh new trailerObsidian is out on May 15th (next Friday) through Nuclear Blast. I hope you pre-ordered it like I did.
  • And we’ll close with this guitar playthrough for “Shape Your Reality” from power metallers Northtale, the band’s first song ever. Their most recent album, Welcome To Paradise dropped last year through Nuclear Blast.
