Welcome back one and all to another weekly mixtape installment. On deck this Saturday (uh, Sunday…sorry!) morning, we have a smattering of Ulver for you, some Sun Kil Moon, an appropriately themed cut from Siouxsie and the Banshees, plus a ton more at the link below. Thanks as always for tuning in.
Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist. We’ve got a house full of new picks from Judicator, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer, and much more. There’s bound to be something you’ll like in there, stop what are you waiting for?
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

Remember that then-untitled new Danzig album we told you about on Friday? Well, it’s got a title: Black Laden Crown. Hooray?
And finally, Ghost Bath released a new song called “Ambrosial,” which you can hear below:

After taking a week off for Chicago Open Air happenings, I decided to return this week with a bit of a curious choice. Spoiler alert: The curious choice is not the album. More on that later. I’ve spent much of the past couple of weeks revisiting some notable albums from the last couple of years. Naturally, I find myself falling father and father behind the new releases dropping each week. But that’s something a rainy day can fix quickly, so it’s a justifiable situation as far as I’m concerned. So, this week I decided to feature one of my favorite albums from last year (even if it didn’t make my EOY list) and supplement it with… well, nothing special. The Metal: Ghost Bath – Moonlover. The Booze: Pabst Old Tankard Ale.Continue reading →
