I haven’t seen any of the trailers for The Northman yet, but I might check out the latest one, which features music from Heilung. Specifically, “Hakkerskaldyr”. Give it a watch here. Fun fact, the name behind this film, Robert Eggers, is a Portsmouth man! So we’re basically best friends.
Moloken is a thing that I dig, so we’ll close with their new video for “Hollow Caress”. That’s a track taken from their fourth album, Unveilance of Dark Matter, which was released through The Sign back in 2020.
Four is enough for today. So we’re going to close this out with the new single and video from Mantic Ritual for “Black Funeral”. That Mercyful Fate cover is featured on the B-side of Crusader, the 7″ set for release on Friday through M-Theory Audio.
German doom metal collective Confusion Master has set November 19th as the release date of their sophomore album, Haunted. That will be out through Exile On Mainstream, and you can check out a teaser for the new album at this location.
And we’ll close with the new video from Los Angeles thrashers Fueled By Fire, for “Bloodshed”. That marks their first new material since 2013, so be sure to pick up Past…Present…No Future…Part 1, the first in a pair of two-song 7-inch releases.
And then we have Aborted, who dropped the third single (and video) from ManiaCult. Check out the clip for the title-track now. That album drops on September 10th through Century Media, and can be pre-ordered on all the formats right here.
Let’s stick with Century Media for a bit. Vildhjarta have announced some more new things. Their next effort, titled måsstaden under vatten, will be out on October 15th, and you can already check out visualizers for two new tracks: “kaos2” and “toxin”.
And we may as well wrap up with the new video from The Absence, for “Faith In Uncreation”. That track is taken from Coffinized, their fifth studio album, which dropped back on June 25th through M-Theory Audio.
This has been a very bizarre Monday, let me tell ya.
We heard new stuff from Cradle of Filth at the end of last week, so we may as well follow all that up with a new tour announcement. They’ll mark their return to the United States in October with 3Teeth and Once Human. Those shows will include a full performance of the 1998 album Cruelty and the Beast, which is fun.
Thrash collective Mantic Ritual have reunited after a decade-long hiatus, and signed on with M-Theory Audio. It looks like they are preparing a new EP, which we would see sometime before the end of the year. Furthermore, for those left coast friends of mine, you can catch them live on August 26th at Supply & Demand. Dope.
I’ve been impressed with Prophecy Productions releases recently, so let’s close with the new video single from Illudium for “Sempervirens”. That track is taken from Ash of the Womb, which is set for an October 15th release. Pre-orders can be snagged here.
