Italy’s Abhor are streaming Sex Sex Sex (Ceremonia Daemonis Antichristi) a few days ahead of the release date. Since this was one of my favorite black metal projects out of Italy for awhile, I’m taking a moment to share it. Here you go. It’s officially out on the 23rd through Iron Bonehead.
We’ll close out Monday with some blackened death metal in the form of Black Lava. The music video for “Eye of the Moon” is below, a track taken from Soul Furnace. That album is out on November 25th through Season of Mist.
Ghost Bath, fresh off the release of Self Loather, have shared a drum playthrough for “Flickering Wicks of Black”. I don’t usually watch these playthrough videos, mostly because I’m a failed musician, but every so often a good one comes around… and this falls into that category. Still need a copy of the album? Order it here.
And we’re going to close with the latest video from Hypocrisy. Yes, I’m bookending this with news from last week. Go figure. Anyway, this is the clip for “Children of the Grey”. As a reminder, Worship is out on November 26th through Nuclear Blast.
Today wasn’t exactly a fun one? But at least it’s almost over.
The Halo Effect, a new project featuring previous members of In Flames in Niclas Engelin, Jesper Strömblad, Peter Iwers, Daniel Svensson, as well as Mikael Stanne currently of Dark Tranquillity, have signed on with Nuclear Blast. The first single, “Shadowminds”, is coming around on November 9th, so be sure to pre-save that one here.
Day by day it seems we’re edging closer to whatever end game is in store and this week’s list of new metal kicks off with two albums tailor made for it. Primitive Man could single handedly kick off, and lead, said end game festivities with their caustic as hell sludge-doom and Rope Sect could turn it into a dark party with their gloomy yet catchy deathrock—two totally opposing albums that are on the same wavelength and both rule. Anyway, offering a bit of respite is the new sorta-tech-sorta-brutal-but-all-fun death metal from Ingested and a slightly more death leaning black metal effort from Arrogant Destruktor. This is a top notch start but there’s much more below to get your apocalyptic soundtracks pulled together. So, get some.Continue reading →
I’m out of witty shit. Whatever. New metal incoming and so much in fact that I had a tough time singling out four standouts but, here we are. Just know there’s so much to dig into this week. Alright then… yes, I do know that black metallers Twilight Fauna dropped the button on Foundations last Friday but it was a surprise so I’m featuring it here because I can and because it’s AMAZING and you do not want to miss this sort of turn in their chapter. Another black metal band with a new album that rules is on deck and that band is Horn, so do that now, too. Binary Code offer up one of the most emotional heavy albums of the year, and Paradise Lost show that they are ready to usurp their best work with…their best work. Yep, it’s that kind of week. We need it so go do it and do it all and do it hard. Continue reading →
