CANTO: Orange Goblin, pg.lost, Æolian, and More

Oh good. It’s dark by 4:00 PM now. I missed this!

  • Pg.lost have released an in-studio video performance of “Shelter” over at Decibel. That track is taken from Oscillate, which drops on November 20th through Pelagic Records.
  • Orange Goblin have had to reschedule their 25th anniversary tour as a result of the pandemic, but that won’t stop them from celebrating the occasion. As an alternative, they will be streaming two live shows, on December 18th and 19th in London. Get your tickets right here!
  • Literally nothing left in the inbox beyond singles and videos, so… the first comes from Cyrax, who dropped a lyric video for “Dorian Gray”, a track taken from Experiences, which is out soon through Wormholedeath.
  • And lastly, we have the new video from Æolian. This one is called “Golden Cage”, taken from The Negationist, which drops on November 20th through Black Lion Records.

Initial Descent: September 20 – 26, 2020

The Ocean

Oh hi. Last week’s list was long but this week’s list is longer. Score. Annnnnd, we’re off… The Ocean has yet to release anything less than stellar and this week’s second Phanerozoic chapter is no exception—expect another epic tour-de-force. If you’re in the camp of saying how much Uada sounds like x band or y band, this week’s third full length will change that as they reach far outside the confines of just black metal and come up with all aces. Speaking of great third full lengths, Svalbard return with what might be their finest post-metal, punk, abrasive yet ethereal moment to date, the amount this band has grown in a short time is unbelievable. Bringing the top four to a close, we have yet another third full length from Lik who bring the Swedeath HEAT. So, exceptional top four here but there’s a ton more to seek out immediately below. Happy hunting.
