New week and new month yet I’m still head over heels into last week’s new releases. So much good stuff came out, might take me weeks to get beyond it. Anyway, how was the weekend? Short you say? I agree but the weekend will be here again soon so there’s that. Huge coffee mugs in hand, we offer you another playlist of what grabbed our attention last week and it is indeed another great, eclectic bunch of tracks to make today more bearable. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel here so you never skip a beat. Also, feel free to leave us some comments on what’s been grabbing your attention lately — we’d love to hear about it.

Doyle has announced a 2018 world tour. It’s called the As We Die World Abomination Tour. It covers a lot of territory in the US and UK between now and mid-April. I’ll pass, but that’s just me.
How about another new track? This one from Napalm Death. We haven’t mentioned them in awhile. “Oh So Pseudo” from Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs, out March 30th.
Screw it. One more. Twitching Tongues have also released a new single today. It’s called “Kill For You”. Their new album, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, will be out March 9th. Check it out below, if you’re into that kinda thing.
If I learned anything from my 2017 forecast of anticipated records, it was not to look too forward to anything. Spend too much time anticipated something and it either doesn’t materialize or doesn’t live up to the expectations you placed on it. The onus of which sits purely on my shoulders. There’s so much to discover out there, why spend/waste all this energy sweating over the next record, the book (George R.R. Martin “fans” are as batshit insane as any metal fan I’ve encountered) when you can dip your toe into literally thousands upon thousands of other things readily available and only waiting for an opportunity to unveil their secrets?
Nurturing this sense of discovery is something I plan to focus on in 2018, but that doesn’t mean I’m impervious to the draw of new music from the bands I love. So wipe away the detritus of the last year, grab yourself a large mug of your preferred morning beverage – no matter what time of the day it is – and let’s talk about what’s beyond that monolith…
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from the last few days:
Leading off, an amusing tidbit from the world of Napalm Death: apparently, the band’s Spotify streams have gone up more than 200% since frontman Barney Greenway appeared on a radio show teaching ex-Labour Party leader Ed Miliband how to scream. (Miliband still can’t scream.)
