Initial Descent: November 20 – 26, 2022

High Command

Turkey time. And, that’s about all we’ll say about that. Hard to believe it’s almost another year down, but we’ve still got a few more weeks of releases to go before we flip the page and this week we’ve got some crossover thrash from High Command, death metal from Lucifericon, gloom and funeral doom from Estrangement, more death metal from Sépulcre, and a ton more in the list that follows.

CANTO: In Flames, High Command, My Dying Bride, and More

Amazing outside. Can wait to spend the evening inside mindlessly staring at the internet.

  • Runespell and Forest Mysticism are preparing a split album scheduled for a May 15th release. The title of that effort is Wandering Forlorn and it will be out on CD and vinyl LP formats through Iron Bonehead Productions.
  • In Flames are still having fun with last year’s release, I, The Mask. For starters, they dropped a one year anniversary bundle that includes a statue and shirt. More entertainingly, they dropped an 8-bit version of the album. Arcade versions of things are always fun, so have at it.
  • High Command have announced some new tour dates, including a small run of dates in Canada, at the end of April. Here is the full run of shows, including the preceding U.S. dates. Enjoy.
  • Finally, since I’m still enjoying the new My Dying Bride album, here is the shiny new video for “To Outlive The Gods”, taken from The Ghost Of Orion. That album is out now on Nuclear Blast.
