I’m happy it’s Friday, and I’m happy about all the metal news that emerged today.
And we’ll start with Boris, who unveiled a new video for a live performance of “Loveless”. That track is the lead single from No, which will see a vinyl release through Third Man Records on August 27th.
From there, we’ll check in with MØL. The blackgazers are returning with their second studio album, Diorama, which will be out through Nuclear Blast. Additional details are still to come for that release, but check out the video for new single “Photophobic” right now.
We’ve also got a new track and album announcement from Carnifex to add to the pile. Graveside Confessions will be out on September 3rd through Nuclear Blast. A video for the title track from that album just dropped today, and you can check it out right here.
The obvious way to close out the week is with the latest from Between The Buried And Me. This is the new video for “Revolution In Limbo”, another one taken from Colors II. As a reminder, that album drops on August 20th through Sumerian Records.
Silver Lake by Esa Holopainen was recently released through Nuclear Blast. I haven’t checked it out in full yet, but I am intrigued by the new video for “Sentiment”, a track which features Jonas Renkse on vocals. And we all know how much I love projects that involve the Katatonia vocalist…
So we’ll pause all the video announcements to include a note about Hellfest 2022, which is probably the most immense festival I could fathom. The festival will span a full week, from June 17th through the 26th, with over 350 bands performing across 6 stages. Headliners include… Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, Faith No More… honestly the list goes on and on. And those are just the headliners. Get the full scoop here.
Alright, I’m running out of steam. Let’s close with the new video from The Absence for the title-track from the upcoming new album, Coffinized. That’s out on June 25th through M-Theory Audio. This video announcement was in our inbox at least three times, just enough to convince me to close the week with it.
My favorite bar is open again and therefore everything is wonderful.
As is always the case on a Friday, we have a whole bunch of new songs and videos to share. So on that note, we will start with Killer Be Killed. Reluctant Hero dropped last November through Nuclear Blast, and today they gave us a new video for “Animus”, a track taken from that album.
And it seems like a good call to wrap up the week with the new single and video from At The Gates. We knew something was brewing (side note: that reminds me it’s time for a beer) for awhile, and this doesn’t disappoint. This is “Spectre of Extinction”, taken from The Nightmare of Being. That album is out July 2nd through Century Media.
