Ok, back in the swing of things.

  • Let’s start with my favorite thing of all time today. Kvelertak have dropped a new song and video called “Crack of Doom”. Better yet? It features Mastodon’s Troy Sanders. Splid is out February 14th through Rise Records.
  • My Dying Bride have opened 2020 with some good news. Their next album, The Ghost Of Orion, will be out in March. At the end of this week, they are planning to drop a new music video for a song called “Your Broken Shore” as well.
  • Gargoyl have signed on with Season of Mist (which is a decision I will always support, of course). And in line with that, they are planning a new album and some live performances later this year.
  • Finally, let’s wrap all this up with a new animated video from Moloken for a song called “Unbearable”. Their next album, Unveilance of Dark Matter drops on January 31st.

All that and much, much more in Episode 25, so check it out! We’re taking next week off for Thanksgiving, so you’d better enjoy it, too, dammit!

Album Review: Moloken – “All Is Left To See”

Moloken-front-cover-1200px-1024x1024

Swedish for “dejected”, Moloken began in 2007 as Nicklas Bäckström’s side project. However, it didn’t take long for this project to take precedent. Eight years were then met with an EP and three studio albums, allowing Moloken to decisively ingrain themselves in a progressive take on sludge metal. As their third studio album, All Is Left To See, they continue to implement a wide range of styles in the same way that has always defined their sound. For the most, the end product is a favorable one, if not too experimental for its own good.
