lacunacoil8.31.2

Got some more live stream shows to share today, so let’s get right into it.

  • Lacuna Coil have announced the “Black Anima: Live From The Apocalypse” event, scheduled for September 11th at 3:00 PM EST. The show will include a full performance of Black Anima, which is pretty dope. Tickets are available here.
  • And then we have Fleshgod Apocalypse, who are live streaming a full concert of their own from Bloom Studio in Rome. That event takes place on August 1st and tickets can be scooped up at this location.
  • Pulchra Morte, the death/doom outfit featuring members of Skeletonwitch, Wolvhammer, Eulogy, etc. have been added to the Transcending Obscurity roster. This news also comes with an album announcement, scheduled for a fall release.
  • And we’ll close with a (relatively) new video from Firing All Cylinders for “Never Broken”, taken from Weaponized, which is out now on Awfully Good Records. Give it a watch if you have a few minutes to spare.

My eyes are burning from staring at screens way too many hours every day and night. Oh well. We fight on.

The Path to Paradise Begins in Hell – Tech Death

The Path to Paradise Begins In Hell

Well, it’s been a while since I wrote one of these, but now that I have some time to sit down and write, I decided to talk about another genre near and dear to my heart that doesn’t seem to get a lot of attention (unless you are Unique Leader Records, which, in that case, they are doing the Lord’s work).

Last time I wrote something for the column, I finished talking about ten genres in metal that I was introduced to, in addition to adding ten more albums for reference. I also hinted at another genre that I love—I have too many of those—that will be discussed.

Also, the last time I wrote something, I was not under quarantine, so please remember to wash your hands.

Well, it’s time.

As many of you know, I have my favorite genres when it comes to my listening preferences, and I tend to not stray far from that path. However, since my early encounter with them, that genre is a comfort, one that I can reach out to when I need it.

Also, fair warning: I know I tend to hyperbolize a lot of things that have happened to me—because humor is the best medicine to dealing with misery—but make no mistake: they still come back to haunt me when I am feeling down.

Let’s talk about Tech Death. Continue reading
