Like I said, at some point recently, the new release hits just keep coming. As always, keep your eyes peeled here for all the goods, but don’t forget to keep an eye on Bandcamp as well as following your favorite labels and bands on social media because let’s face it, we don’t have a magic ball nor do we know EVERY album coming out. We try. But, well, anyway, yea. Alright then, let’s see what kind of filth is in store this week…Maggot Crown are back with yet another wall of impenetrable death metal, one of Beyond Mortal Dreams‘ best albums is getting a re-release (more death metal), the ever popular and ever defining Metal Massacre series is dropping its XV edition, and Hippie Death Cult (damn, what a great band name) offer up an acid trip of a psychedelic, rockin’, laid back album that I simply can’t get enough of—good lake floatin’ album. Drop below and get your eyes full.Continue reading
CANTO: Khemmis, Extrema, Inexorum, and More
I think I might get a day off next week!
- In case you felt like you needed a death metal cover of Haddaway’s “What Is Love?” (and let’s be real, sometimes we all need exactly that), I give you this listening experience from Nuclear Winter.
- Khemmis dropped a guitar playthrough for “Bloodletting“, the opening track from 2018’s Desolation. I very much enjoy that song and album, so I’ll actually take a few minutes to watch this one for a change.
- Inexorum have announced Moonlit Navigation will be out on June 26th through Gilead Media. In conjunction with that news, they also released a video for the title-track from that album, which can be viewed over at Metal Injection.
- And we’ll close with a new one from Extrema. This track is called “The Ripper”, and will help generate donations for Italian Covid-19 relief. Solid groovy thrashy stuff to round out a Thursday.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Initial Descent: February 9 – 15, 2020
Hoo boy did I ever miss the mark last week not putting Sepultura’s Quadra up top. That album is straight fire from top to bottom. Missed opportunity for sure but hey, it got opening sentence this week so, score?! Anywhoo, new metals this week include an outstanding death metal debut from Plague who take the tried and true death template and do amazing things with it – actual wizardry in death metal? Absolutely. Noise rock friends of Nine Circles Disastroid are back with an outstanding follow up to 2017s Screen, ethereal doom knows no bounds in the hands of Frayle on their latest, and Ihsahn is up with an EP that really grabbed me from the lead off singles but who knows, the rest might be a techno trance jam. I kid, I kid – I jumped on the preorder so there’s that. Much more awaits those who care to plunder the depths below. Enjoy. Oh, happy V day and all that. Continue reading
