We’ll wrap up Monday with the traditional heavy metal collective out of Portland, Mamorlis. Sturdy as an Oak is out independently on March 8th, and you can pre-order it on cassette here. Check out the first single from that, “Wolfric the Wild”, right below.
After this, I get to write about music and alcohol at the same time!
Brand of Sacrifice dropped a reissue of the title track from their most recent album, Lifeblood. The album was released back in March originally, and this version of the track features Will Ramos of Lorna Shore. Give it a listen here.
Updates from Bindrune Recordings are always notable. Nechochwen have returned with the title track from their next album, “Kanawha Black”. Give it a listen here. That album should be out sometime next year, so keep your eye out for more updates.
I’m a really big fan of the new Anomalie album, Tranceformation, so we’ll close with the new video for the third single from that. Check out “Trance I: The Tree”, and remember to pick that album up, which is out November 26th through AOP Records.
Another Saturday is upon us which means another mixtape of tunes we haven’t been able to get enough of this past week. For this edition we’ve got Krisiun and some classics from Opeth and Grand Magus, new Rivers of Nihil, Deafheaven, Lingua Ignota, Bizarre, and a ton more. Take this playlist with you wherever you go and for whatever you’re doing today, it’s fit for warriors, players, drinkers…and everyone in between.
We’re officially past the halfway point of 2021, it’s swamp ass hot, and live shows are all of a sudden on thin ice again. What the fresh hell is this?! Don’t answer that, but just keep your ears on all the excellent metal this year has had, and will have, to offer. On that note, this week’s batch of shiny new tunes includes a debut EP from Eyes of Perdition that’s heavy on death metal, boils over with hardcore attitude and is fantastic all the way through, Infex hits all the early Testament thrash feels, Lorna Shore shreds eardrums with their sick deathcore, and Ænigmatum offer up some speedy, melodic, and technical death metal. Yep, another killer week here in the new metal roundup, and of course, there’s tons more to be found in the list below. Get after it.
