Welcome back y’all. It’s been an interesting week. Work sucks (who actually likes their job anyway?) but I’ve been consoling myself by taking extra time in the mornings to take the train to work in lieu of driving. It gives me time to listen to an album on the way there and an album on the way home, which when coupled with the cold winter air and exercise has been doing wonders for my moods. It’s also helping immensely when it comes to categorizing my year end list. I still took time to check out the new song from American Football though; I grew up a sad man from Illinois and I’ll die a sad man from Illinois. Want to see what else I and my colleagues have been listening to? Check the playlist below…
Oh, this is probably worth mentioning. Interested in owning a piece of black metal history? Well, a fragment of Dead’s skull can be yours for a slim $3,500.00. Yes, you can literally own a piece of the deceased Mayhem vocalist (accompanied by a letter from Euronymous dated in 1991, five days after Dead’s suicide). Crazy and WEIRD.
Big news from Astronoid today. Their second, self-titled, full length album will be out February 1st through Blood Music. You can catch them on tour early next year with Between The Buried and Me and Tesseract. For now, however, you can check out a new song called “I Dream In Lines.”
1/3/2018. I guess it’s going to snow here tonight.
One of the bigger things to surface recently (to some people that aren’t me) was the Coachella lineup. A whole lotta stuff unrelated to what we cover, but I guess A Perfect Circle is on there. So that’s something.
This was a weird thing to pop up today. If you want a piece of black metal/Mayhem history, you can purchase some of Euronymous’ original letters. They start at $250 and it looks like there are only a few left.
More alcohol branding. Red Fang are teaming up with Teutonic Wine Company to bring us the, appropriately titled, Red Fang Red. It’s a bit of unique blend, so I’m curious as to how well it’s received. Since I used to pretend to know things about wine once and stuff.
Septicflesh have dropped a new video for “Martyr”. They’ll be touring around these parts in the coming months. I’ll be there. I think.
