I know, I know. I’m late for these more often than not. Deal with it.
Dawn of Ouroboros have signed on with Prosthetic Records, and have promptly unveiled a new music video for “Sorrow’s Eclipse”. That track is taken from their debut album, The Art of Morphology, which dropped back in 2020.
Mörk Gryning, the Swedish black metal project that dates back to 1993, are about to embark on their first U.S. tour. The dates run from April 28th through May 9th, and they’ll be joined by Arsantiqva, The Noctambulant, and Promethean Horde on select dates.
A new project formed from the minds of Perturbator and Cult of Luna‘s Johannes Persson, titled Final Light. The one-time project are releasing their self-titled album on June 24th through Red Creek. Listen to “In The Void” right now.
Closing out our Wednesday, we have new material from Fallujah, which is something I haven’t been able to say in awhile. The video for “Radiant Ascension” is below, a track taken from Empyrean, their new album set for a September 9th release through Nuclear Blast.
I guess we’re on the every other day plan this week. Oh well.
It does bring me some happiness to lead off with tour announcements, so we’ll do that today starting with Rivers of Nihil. They have May and June dates coming up with Fallujah, Alluvial, and Warforged. See all the dates and get your tickets here.
Switching gears a bit, Cremation Lily have announced details surrounding their debut through The Flenser. Dreams Drenched In Static is slated for an April 15th release and the first single, “Selfless”, can be heard here.
Nine Circles favorite Moon Tooth have set May 13th as the release date for Phototroph, which will be out through Pure Noise Records. Check out the clip for “Carry Me Home” below. Also worth mentioning that they have some live dates in April and May, which you should all take advantage of.
Week nine of this shit I think? Who cares. I’m having beer delivered shortly.
Suicide Silence are the latest to announce a virtual tour, and this one sounds pretty cool. The band will be offering unique sets, exclusive merchandise, and custom experiences for each market. That’s a creative way to put a “world tour” spin on the virtual tour reality we’ve become familiar with, and I’m all for it.
Hostia has a new album dropping called Carnivore Carnival this fall through the Deformeathing Production label. They offered their first track from that effort today, called “Slaves”, so we will tie things up with that.
Rain. Rain. More rain. I just can’t deal. Soooo tired of it and ready for dry and summer and longer days. Well, one out of three ain’t bad and if you read that and said ‘dammit, totally forgot to spring forward on my clock’ good luck explaining that one to the boss – happy Monday. We have a fix for the blahs though and it comes in the form of new metals. Read on friends…
It’s safe to say we’ve established Venom Prison as complete bad-assery and on Samsara they kick their venomous death metal up several notches since their last outing – is that even possible?! Anyway, everything about this album topples Animus and that’s no easy feat nor is it a slight to that album in any way, the band has grown and it’s obvious during the opening salvo of “Matriphagy.” Moving along, Noisem returns with a new lease on life and a new attitude on Cease To Exist which finds them stoking their death thrash with extremely confrontational grind and it’s a sound to behold. Next up is the debut, Nocebo, from MA’s Elizabeth Colour Wheel and the blackgaze tag seems too simple after the onslaught of 90s rock, noise and ethereal moments of bliss found all over this thing – it’s hard to pin down but it is a journey best left travelled and enjoyed, I very much have enjoyed it – just sayin’. Last up top is progressive death metal stalwarts Fallujah with their fourth full length Undying Light which finds them, once again, toying with tech death, blackened stylings, and proggy structures – definitely a step up and one you won’t want to miss.
Feeling better? See? I knew it and glad we could help. You’re welcome. Now, get to the rest of this list… Continue reading →
