Initial Descent: May 27 – June 2, 2018

It’s June folks. I’m old enough to know better than be surprised at how fast time slips away but…JUNE. Anyway, new metal is why you stopped by and that we have plenty of. Leading the charge this week is the self-titled debut album from Hostia and I can assure you that grindcore / extreme metal aficionados will find plenty of special sauce in this one. Next up is Ghost with their latest Prequelle and this one is quickly filling that ‘feel good hit of the summer’ vibe — clean singing and big hooks glorifying the dark one has never been this much fun. Wait, fun? Leaving it there, you decide. Moving on is Everything & Nothing, the debut from Raum Kingdom which has a very strong Amenra vibe so if that’s your thing, and why wouldn’t it be, get on it. Closing down this week’s top four is Creatio et Hominus from Burial In the Sky which finds the band in forward thinking death metal mode this time out and to be sure, this is a good thing. As usual, there’s a ton more so keep reading and keep exploring. Continue reading
