Folks, it’s Saturday. The day that felt like it’d never come. But alas and long week be damned it’s time for whatever it is you do when you’re not paying the bills. And of course we’re here to help soundtrack the whole thing with another loaded playlist of the things we’ve been jamming this week. We’ve got tons of death metal, some hardcore..ish sludge, a little bit of black metal, a lot of stuff in between, and we close the whole thing down with a tribute to Des Kensel who just announced his departure from High On Fire, sad news. Go, hit the play button, and let the rough side drag. Oh, if you were subscribed to our YouTube channel you could’ve had this playlist last night so do that right here.
Monolord have set a release date of September 20th for their Relapse Records debut album, called No Comfort. You can check out a new song called “The Bastard Son” now, and catch them on tour in Europe in October and in the U.S. in November. So much Monolord. Very good.
Let’s check out a new song from Israeli thrash band Shredhead. The song is called “Unmarked” and it features captured footage from a recent tour in Japan. It’s quite good.
I have so much delicious music to listen to this coming month. So exciting.
Starting off with some news about a real shit break for Wormrot. They were U.S. bound for a run of shows that included MDF. They made it… but none of their clothes or equipment did. It sounds like things might be turning around, but this is still a total pain in the ass. And it’s not the first stroke of misfortune they’ve dealt with. All the best for these dudes.
Many of you know Cole from Twitter (@KVLTland) or maybe you know him from his Columbus Scene Report, but either way he’s back with his picks of 2017. In lieu of a list he decided to go the video route, and he’s wearing a killer shirt, so without further ado here’s Cole…
With 2017 being a salty, wretched year as far as social norms go, the year did however provide us with a light from heaven (or hell) in the music department. Being granted the ability to transport myself outside my city, I was able to go to shows to see some of my favorite bands in the city of Atlanta, GA. With one show in particular as an honorable mention in my video, this year has brought me closer to metal than any year of my life, which is a HUGE win.

Mr. Plow is a band that’s been around since 1997, a time when Fu Manchu and Kyuss were lighting up ears and minds with their heavy stoner rock. And in this long stretch of time the band has released three full lengths and are readying their fourth, Maintain Radio Silence, set for independent release on January 26. The band has always been more about the good times than negativity and this new album is more of the same in that department with rocking riffs aplenty along with some crazy catchy melodies and the title track is heavier than a 55 gallon drum of lead. The guys were nice enough to share their top music picks from 2017 with us so head inside to see what they dug this year.
