Just as is always the case and as I predicted here a few weeks back: all the resolution type gym goers are starting to whittle down to pre-January numbers. The cycle is unbroken. Now, I’m not judging…just situational awareness and circling back on my prediction is all. Let’s do the thing you all came for and that’s this week’s new release list. Bay Area deathdealers Conjureth offer up their sophomore effort of classic leaning, but oh so deadly death metal, Seven Doors which is a one man horror obsessed death machine is up next with an album loaded to the cerebral cortex with both of those things, black metal gets a swift kick in the pants from Ashen Horde, and Cancervo serve up some damn tasty doom with a side of fuzz. But, there’s a smorgasbord of albums in the list below that are worth seeking out so use that copy / paste feature and happy hunting. See you here throughout the week.Continue reading
Man, with every new single, I’m getting more excited about Sky Void of Stars…
- But first, we have a few other items to touch on. Enterprise Earth revealed a new track, titled “Death Magick”, the video of which can be seen here. That comes in advance of their European tour with Shadow of Intent, and is the first of two new singles we can expect this month, which is awesome.
- Malaysian death metal act Obscurial have inked a deal with Memento Mori as they prepare the release of their second album, which is currently being recorded. For now, give 2021’s Funeral, Burial and Rites a listen here.
- PNW hardcore/powerviolence group Endorphins Lost are releasing Night People on February 3 through Rotten To The Core and To Live A Lie Records. Today they unveiled the first single, “Regulation Area Bombing”, which you can listen to over at their Bandcamp page.
- Closing with how we opened, we have the latest from Katatonia. Give the video for “Birds” a watch immediately below, and get excited for the release of Sky Void of Stars on January 20 through Napalm Records.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Ahhhhh, so it’s going to be one of THOSE weeks. Coolcoolcool.
- Let’s open up with one of my favorite German black metal projects in Imperium Dekadenz. They have a new album out on January 20 through Napalm Records titled Evermore, and today they revealed “November Monument”. It rules. Everything they do rules. Can’t wait for this release.
- Fit For a King have announced a North American tour with Northlane, Alpha Wolf, and Kingdom of Giants. Those dates run from February 16 through March 19, and tickets go on sale this coming Friday at this location.
- Xandria gave us a video for the The Wonders Still Awaiting title-track, which you can check out here. That new album is out on February 3 through Napalm Records.
- Conjureth set January 23 as the release date for The Parasitic Chambers, which will be available through Memento Mori. Check out “Smothering Psalms” here.
- Ne Obliviscaris unveiled their first new track in over five years. The music video for “Equus” is available below, the first sampling taken from Exul. That new album is set for a March 23 release through Season of Mist.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
As it turns out, Snow-Ice-Mageddon 2022 (part one) wasn’t terrible for us and nowhere near as bad as forecasted. Some didn’t fare as well, and that blows. However, I could’ve easily made some killer atmospheric black metal album covers out of the pictures taken from the storm so any bands looking, I got you covered. As hinted at, the new metal release list is a bit longer this week with several quality offerings for all discerning metal heads. Leading that charge is a trio of equal parts old school and hard hitting death metal from Ectoplasma, Malefic Throne, and Ravenous Death then we’ve got a horror / proto-metal offering from Possessor that’s infectious as hell. Definitely a great way to kick off the last full week of January and don’t forget about the rest that lie in wait below these four. Get some.Continue reading
Alright, so there were a few more things going on today.
- Mastodon greeted us with a new track this morning, and it (unsurprisingly) kicks ass. It’s titled “Forged by Neron”, and is featured on the DC Comics Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack. Give it a listen here, and feel free to pre-order the collection as well.
- Blackened death duo Our Place of Worship is Silence is releasing a new full-length on August 27 through Translation Loss Records, titled Disavowed, and Left Hopeless. The title-track was also revealed today over at Decibel, and it is absolutely relentless. I’m looking forward to this one.
- Old school death metallers Hexorcist have set July 26th as the release date for Evil Reaping Death. They’re partnering with Memento Mori for the CD release, Unholy Prophecies for the vinyl, and Goz of War for the cassette. Simply put, whatever your preferred media form is, they’ve got you covered. Check out “Exulting the Adversary”, the first new track, here.
- Lithuanian experimental sludge collective Erdve have also announced a new album, Savigaila, set for a July 23rd release through Season of Mist. Pre-orders are up here, and check out the video for the new single “Lavondėmės” immediately below.
