This week is starting to taper off, and I’m really excited about it.
So this sounds really freaking cool. Sólstafir and Vreid are teaming up for a very unique concert stream, scheduled for October 15th and taking place on the mountaintops of Iceland and Norway. It’s scheduled for 3:00 PM EST, and you can tune in here.
This is a Europe thing I can’t participate in, but for those that can… I’m jealous. Arcturus and Iotunn have a run of shows planned in January and February of next year. Having seen Arcturus live once before, I would love to do that again someday in a not-MDF setting.
Monuments released the first single off of their upcoming new album, the name of which either does not exist yet or I simply can’t find. Anyway, that will be out sometime in 2022, and the clip for “Lavos” can be seen here.
I was going to skip this today, but there is just way too much going on.
What better way to welcome the weekend than with a new Hypocrisy album announcement. Kind of! Based on today’s update, the new album is recorded and mastered, and at this point we’re just waiting on a release date… and basically every other detail. Either way, I’ll take it!
And we have to close with the new track from Gojira, titled “Amazonia”. Most importantly, proceeds from the song benefit The Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB), who advocate for environmental and cultural rights of indigenous tribes in the Amazon. So, good stuff all around with this one. Fortitude is out on April 30th.
It’s time for Episode 17 of The Horns Up Podcast, your weekly catch-up on all things metal!
We’re into our second and final week of the Great Butterworth Recession of 2014! This time, co-host emeritus Kevin Davis stops by to chat about new albums from Eluveitie and Nachtmystium, laugh at Varg Vikernes for getting banned from eBay, and discuss new developments at his film production company, Visibly Shaken.
All that and much, much more, so check it out!

There’s some story making the rounds about Kid Rock and Insane Clown Posse and a dildo, or something. I haven’t read it because I’m worried about my brain melting and falling out of my head, but maybe you’re ballsier than I am?
One thing I’ve always loved about hockey goalies (using the term “loved” relatively, because, well…hockey) is how they can paint their masks with any design they want. Augsburger Panther keeper Chris Mason took full advantage of this rule, and commissioned a gnarly Iron Maiden-themed design on his. It’s pretty badass.
Adrenaline Mob’s bass player apparently quit the band via social media. Without telling the band. Because that’s not awkward at all…
The video’s…fine, I guess. What I love, though, is Metal Injection’s suggestion in their post that we go out and buy the CD for $14.99. Sure, because we’re still in 1999. Anyway, that’ll do it. Check back tomorrow for more Horns Up stuff!
