Friday’s Friday. All kinds of weird stuff today.

  • Soulfly have announced the Blood on the Street 2019 U.S. Tour. They’ll be joined by Unearth, Incite, Prison, and Arrival of Autumn. The tour begins on September 3rd and runs through the 29th.
  • Necronomicon have revealed details behind their next album. Unus will be out on October 18th via Season of Mist. There is a new trailer for the album, which you can check out here.
  • Adema, a name I definitely have not heard in forever, is apparently still active. They have a new vocalist in Ryan Shuck and they will be touring the U.S. with Powerman 5000 and a bunch of other bands I don’t care about.
  • Finally, let’s check out some new stuff from Beastwars. This is called “Storms of Mars” and will feature on their upcoming new album, IV, out next week on Destroy Records.

Initial Descent: March 25, 2016

God-DAMN, what a new release Friday we’ve got today. Even if all we had dropping today was the new Cobalt, it’d still have been a hell of a day. In case it wasn’t clear, that’s your reminder to pick up the band’s long-awaited third album, Slow Forever. It’s an absolute triumph, and a surefire album-of-the-year contender. (Yes, it’s March. Not comfortable dropping “AOTY” bombs this early? Let’s give it a more timely nickname: how about “No. 1 Overall Seed”? #Madness)

But in fact, Cobalt’s not the only thing dropping today. Not by a long shot. We’ve also got Krighsu, the new record from Spanish brutal/tech deathsters Wormed (WORMED), and new stuff from Rotten Sound and…sigh…Amon Amarth, among others. Like I said, it’s a big day. So let’s not waste any more time; here’s what’s on tap for Friday, March 25:

Drinking With Satan: C.Y.S.T. – “Demo” and Its Ministers On Earth – “118”

Holy. Hell. Alright, so it’s finally October. This is great news. I love October. The cold air, the beer, the anticipation of Halloween. It’s all pretty freaking sweet. Keeping all that in mind, I wanted to do something a bit different for this month’s round of Drinking With Satan. Normally, I snag some new black metal release, get all liquored up, talk about it (sometimes), and get a little, or all the way, weird. But that’s not going to happen this time. Relax, relax, I’m still drinking in mass quantities. To that point, tonight’s specials are Harpoon’s mediocre Take 5 Session IPA (x5) and Southern Comfort. Why Southern Comfort? Because I miss my stupid SoCo insanity from my youth. And much like Troy Aikman, I dwell on the past. Deal with it.
