This is going to be a murderous week and I am already exhausted by it.
Opening with some atmospheric black metal on this gloomy day feels right. Check out the new stuff from Ashbringer, “Rain”, over at Invisible Oranges. They’ve signed on to Translation Loss, so we’ll keep eyes out for a new album announcement sometime soon as well.
Let’s close with some grind. Elder Devil dropped a video for “My Body Is An Earthen Shrine”, which you can check out below. Their sophomore album, Everything Worth Loving, is out on June 16 through Prosthetic Records.
Death Bells are getting up to some good stuff. First, we have this new performance video for “Hysteria”. That’s a track from Between Here & Everywhere, which is out on July 29th through Dais Records. Beyond that, they also have some live dates running from July 30th through August 31st, so be sure to catch them on the road if the opportunity presents itself.
And, as promised, we’re close out with the new track from Saor. Below is the new video for “Beyond the Wall”. It’s a little different, and a lot awesome. As a reminder, Origins is out on June 24th through Season of Mist.
On their ninth full length album, Fenice, Ufomammut are all about the finesse of their already well established and powerful, psychedelic doom metal. They continue to push their own boundaries and move the bar even higher for any band trying to chase them. And let’s face it, plenty have since Ufomammut have influenced countless others along the way. Just ahead of the album’s release, Buke sat down with Poia, Urlo, and Levre for an in depth discussion surrounding the new album and how it came to be, band history and how they eventually landed on their signature sound, using synthesizer, their intense passion for art as well as a discussion on album art, how hard Covid hit Italy and how they all handled it, how it was for Levre to join an already established band, and so much more. We now present that conversation to you in its entirety so grab your drink of choice, a chair, and enjoy.
Draft day was last week, it’s finally warm, we’re still getting an obscene amount of good metal, and, needless to say, all this makes me happy. And, the fact that it’s Monday doesn’t phase me one bit. Alright then, new metal and we got it and you need it so dig in and see what’s up this week…everyone’s favorite d-beat-grind-hardcorists God Mother are back with an absolute steamroller of an EP, the undisputed kings of power doom, Ufomammut, grace us with a killer album, Tzompantli offers up a very unique and very heavy take on death-doom, Tenebro goes whole hog on the Italian horror movie love by way of gritty and nasty death metal, and there’s an unbelievably long list that follows to entertain any tastes. No excuses, go get them. Oh, want to see your band here in the future? Get in touch, contact info awaits on the about page. See you here throughout the week…
Enterprise Earth has announced a headlining tour this coming July and August, with support from Within Destruction, Sentinels, and Great American Ghost. That tour will be in support of The Chosen, which dropped earlier this year through MNRK Heavy.
