So out of the all the epic new material that dropped today, what has everyone been listening to?
Current and former members of In Flames sure have been busy lately. That’s also true for Anders Fridén, who launched his own new project, titled If Anything, Suspicious. Check out the first material from OFFAIR: Lullabies for the Damned, right here.
Remember that epic tour scheduled for last year that featured the likes of Megadeth, In Flames, Lamb of God, and Trivium? Well, those dates have been rescheduled to this August and September. This tour would be a monstrous way to welcome concerts back in 2021, so fingers crossed it all works out. Tickets go on sale Friday.
Lastly, and definitely most importantly (to me), is the news from Amenra. Their next full-length, De Doorn, is set for a June 25th release through Relapse Records. Pre-order it here, but just a heads up that a lot of the good stuff is sold out already (I helped that cause). This also came with a new track and video, “De Evenmens”. Needless to say, it is incredible on every front. Enjoy.
Cradle of Filth have announced a live stream event on Halloween, performed in St. Mary’s Church. This sounds… delightful. Get your tickets here. Side note: how is Halloween already a topic of discussion again? What a strange year.
Clayman turned 20 today, and we all know In Flames celebrated the occasion with an anniversary edition of the record, complete with a few re-recordings. One of which was “Only For The Weak”. Say what you will about the new version, but this video hits me in all the nostalgic feels.
Kicking myself for not carving out time to get this in yesterday’s schedule. Alas.
OF COURSE we’re going to open with the latest track and video from The Ocean. This one is for “Oligocene”, which serves as a transition between the Mesozoic and Cenozoic segments of the record. Phanerozoic II is out on September 25th through Metal Blade.
Anybody check out the stream of Enslaved‘s “Below The Lights” performance, a collaboration with the Beyond The Gates Festival? Here’s the link if you need it.Utgard is out on October 2nd through Nuclear Blast.
Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist. Today, we’ve got the new Gojira single for you, alongside other new cuts from Primitive Man, Black Crown Initiate, Uada, and Incantation. And you know there’s plenty more in there that you’ll like, so jump in below and get your morning started right.
