Allegaeon have announced their new (old) vocalist, welcoming Ezra Haynes back to the group. Since Elements of the Infinite is still my favorite Allegaeon record, I’m fine with this. Catch them on the European road this coming November with Rivers of Nihil, Fallujah, and more.
Tribulation unveiled a new standalone single, “Hamartia”, the video for which can be seen below. That’s their first new material since last year’s Where The Gloom Becomes Sound, and precedes their upcoming European tour with Abbath and Watain.
The inbox has been blowing up today, which means there has to be some good stuff in there.
Dream Unending made waves last year with their debut, Tide Turns Eternal. And now, less than a year from that release, it’s time to prepare for their sophomore effort. Song of Salvation drops on November 11th through 20 Buck Spin, and “Secret Grief” is streaming now.
Fallujah released Empyrean today through Nuclear Blast (it’s quite good), and to mark the occasion they shared a new visualizer for “Mindless Omnipotent Master”. Give it a watch here. And if you need more reading material around that album, here’s Ian’s review.
To jump into the weekend, we’ll close with the latest from Revocation. The video for “Nihilistic Violence” is below, a track obviously taken from Netherheaven. Their latest album dropped today through Metal Blade.
While Kardashev may be the first (or at least the first to put the term way out into modern parlance), they are not the only atmospheric death metal band out there, as fans of Fallujah well know. While often classified purely as tech death, Fallujah have cultivated a sound all their own that thrives on delicate atmosphere and subtle melody as much as technical precision, as well as guitarist Scott Carstairs’ mind-bending prowess. On Empyrean, the band lay all their cards out on the table and double down on what makes them great and unique among their peers.
Yeah, I’m not gonna lie, the heat is approaching a suffocating level at this point.
We’ll lead off this Thursday with some Fallujah, specifically referring to the latest, and final, single from Empyrean. Check out “Soulbreaker” here, and get ready for the release of that album on September 9th through Nuclear Blast.
And we’ll jump back to Nuclear Blast to close things out. Below is the new video from Malevolence for “Higher Place”. Malicious Intent is out now, and can be purchased here. They also have a ton of tour dates coming up, but you’ll have to seek those details out on your own.
From there, we also have the latest single taken from Death Siege, the next album in the Hierophant catalog. Give “Crypt of Existence” a listen here. That album drops on August 26th through Season of Mist.
END and Cult Leader are teaming up for a split EP, titled Gather & Mourn. That will be out on September 9th through Closed Casket Activities and Deathwish Inc, and we have two tracks to offer from this today, END’s “Eden Will Drown” and Cult Leader’s “Ataraxis”.
Swedish heavy metallers Trial have set September 2nd as the the release date for Feed The Fire, which will be out through Metal Blade. Check out “Sulphery”, and pre-order that one while you’re over there.
Closing out, we have the title-track from The Great Heathen Army, the upcoming new album from Amon Amarth that I’m sure you were already aware of. Anyway, that’s out on August 5th through Metal Blade Records.
