There is plenty to discuss today, so let’s get right into it.
We’ll start with a couple of reissues. First, Yob is releasing a deluxe version of Atma, which I am super excited about. That will be out on April 8 through Relapse, and you can pre-order that here. Or, of course, through Bandcamp. Fun fact, Yob also has a few live dates coming up, including FOUR at Saint Vitus in February. So jump on that as well.
Necronomicon have announced a new livestream show, “Vivus Verum”, scheduled for November 12th. That will be premiered at the Season of Mist YouTube channel, and the event will be in support of their latest album, Unus, which dropped last year. Here’s a trailer for the event, as well as an opportunity to set a reminder.
Okilly Dokilly have announced “Tourdiddly Do” 2022 dates, running from April 14th through May 7th. But it will be your last chance to see them, maybe ever, as they announced an indefinite hiatus immediately following the tour. Regardless, we should all take great joy in knowing this project ever existed at all.
Since we have an opportunity to close out the day with The Ocean, you bet I’m going to seize it. Check out the clip for “Jurassic | Cretaceous”, taken from their Roadburn Redux performance, below. As a reminder, Phanerozoic Live will be out on November 26th through Metal Blade and Pelagic Records.
Since news is fairly light today, I’m going to take this opportunity to share my favorite Instagram account ever this week. I give you… Albums of Bikini Bottom. My personal favorite is probably the one for Karmacode.
Ingested have released a lockdown video for “Dead Seraphic Forms”, which is a track taken from their upcoming new album, Where Only Gods May Tread, out August 14th through Unique Leader. Let’s watch this one together.
In case you weren’t aware, some stuff was stolen from the Musonia School of Music that was once owned by the legendary Randy Rhoads back on Thanksgiving night. Well, a couple weeks later, some of the items have surfaced… in a dumpster.
While the rest of civilization is knee deep in pumpkin spice, we’re knee deep in extreme metal and crusty horror flicks. Don your costumes and get the old plastic pumpkins ready, we’ve got tons of metal candy to hand out. Let’s do it…
For their seventh album, black metallers 1349 revisit the chaotic and thrashy nature of Hellfire and it’s like spiked arm gear buried elbow deep in some unsuspecting angel’s throat, put that in your pipe and smoke it. Oregon based deathgrinders, Rank and Vile, get the lead out with eight new tracks of piss and venom. It’s short, to the point, and kicks ass – ‘nuff said. Shrine of Insanabilis swiftly swing the black metal axe and conjure up an even better album than their debut… wait, what? It’s true, seek it out. NecronomicoN have always had a unique sort of operatic take on death metal and this tradition continues on their sixth full length which just so happens to be perfect for a dramatic exsanguination. Alright then, you know what’s next. Seek out the music and DESTROY your wallet.Continue reading →
For the Necronomicon fans out there, you may want to check out their 2 hour guest DJ appearance on Gimme Radio. I plan on tuning as much as I can, even I’ll still be neck deep in the day job responsibilities.
