Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist. Thing get weird this week as we throw at you a witches’ brew of prog, war metal, pop-punk, acoustic folk, and just about anything else you can think of. We like to keep it interesting around these parts. Take a listen, as always, at the link below.
That superb owl wasn’t superb at all.
- This came through last Friday but I was too busy doing mountain things. But… holy shit everyone this Migration Fest lineup is absurd. Buried at Sea, Falls of Rauros, and Thou performing with Emma Ruth Rundle are the sets I’m most looking forward to. How about you?
- The Black Dahlia Murder have announced an upcoming tour with Testament, Municipal Waste, and Meshiaak. Those dates fall in April and May. I plan on doing everything I can to get to that one.
- Faith No More, System of a Down, and Korn are teaming up to play a massive stadium show at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on May 22nd. Additional support will come from Russian Circles and Helmet. That is a pretty damn wild one-off show.
- And we will wrap up with a new video from Northwind Wolves. This one is for “Lord of Winter and Death”. A little symphonic metal on a Monday afternoon, I suppose. Their latest, Mountains And Darkness, is out now through Black Lion Records.

There are some people whose presence on this earth are so large that you can’t imagine living in a world without them. For the world of rock music, Neil Peart was one of those powers. When I was a young man I thought I couldn’t stand Rush, mostly due to my distaste of Geddy Lee’s voice. Thankfully I got over myself eventually, but even in my days when I didn’t like the band, I always counted Neal Peart as one of the best drummers I’ve ever heard. There’s no one, Rush fan or not, who I ever heard call him anything less than the best. I’m sad we won’t hear any more of him, but his legacy will be here forever.
Here are some tunes.

“Take a look at the trail behind you, this is terrain you know. It might reappear again. Now you stare at the path before you, so tell me what is shown. Decipher eternity.”
