Big week for big releases. I must have listened to that Megadeth album five more times after writing up my maiden voyage with the album for the site. Now it’s been a steady diet of Blind Guardian, King Buffalo and the Motörhead tribute Whitespade from the guy behind Midnight. The heavy is strong this week, indeed.
But it’s not all about me. The team has some massive tracks to share as well, from bands like Goatwhore, Armed for Apocalypse, some true insanity from Fluids, as well as the latest from Devin Townsend, Wolfbrigade, Escarnium, Crippled Black Phoenix and Cloakroom. Throw in the latest single from All Them Witches, a classic track from Siouxsie and the Banshees as well as Pantera, Moonspell and Killswitch Engage and, well…you got yourself this week’s playlist.
Still shaking out the FITM cobwebs. In a good way. I wish I could say it’s nice to be home and back at work but… I’m not so sure it is.
Leading, we have news surrounding the first U.S. Accept tour in a decade. The dates run from September 29 through October 29, and include some meet and greet packages. Get the full scoop right here.

A few days of calm, before I’m back on the road this coming Thursday.
By far the biggest news of the day emerged from the Lamb of God camp. First off, their next album, Omens, is set to arrive on October 7th through Epic Records. Keep an eye out for “Nevermore” this coming Friday. And then from there, they also announced a massive headlining tour in September and October with the likes of Killswitch Engage, Baroness, Fit For An Autopsy and more (depending on the date).
Not really sure where to go from there to be honest. Oh, new stuff from Boris! “Question 1” has been unveiled, a track that will appear on Heavy Rocks. That album is set for an August 12th release through Relapse.
Happy Friday, everyone! I have nothing further to add beyond that.
So this is awesome. Crowbar is touring with Spirit Adrift this summer, beginning July 16th and running through August 27th. Not sure how I missed this update earlier in the week. Alas, no stops right in my backyard, but where there’s a will… there’s a way.
The Halo Effect unveiled another new single, titled “The Needless End”. Curiously, after loving the first single, I kind of lost sight of this project. Regardless, their debut album, titled Days Of The Lost, is out on August 12th through Nuclear Blast.
Haunt are releasing their seventh full-length album, Windows of Your Heart, on July 1st through Iron Grip and Church Recordings, and today they unveiled a new lyric video for “Mercenaries”.
We’re going to wrap up with the ferocious new track from Inhuman Condition, titled “I’m Now The Monster”. That’s the third single taken from Fearsick, which is out on July 15th through Listenable Insanity Records.
We’ll start out with Gilead Media, which I subscribe to for some reason. Anyway, Inexorum have announced a new album, Equinox Vigil. That’s set for a June 17th release, and the title track is streaming over at Decibel.
Alright, let’s check out some live material from Powerwolf. This is the live action version of “Venom of Venus”, taken from The Monumental Mass – A Cinematic Metal Event. That will be out on July 8th through Napalm Records, for those interested.
Eyehategod has some tour dates coming up, so we’ll acknowledge that with their latest video. This one is for “Every Thing, Every Day”. That, of course, is taken from A History of Nomadic Behavior, which dropped last year through Century Media.
