Another week down and another ahead of us. One foot in front of the other sort of thing. Walk of life. Whatever. The time changed, finally, and I’m stoked to get my days back. And, of course, I’m constantly daydreaming about sand and salt that will be in my future. Moving on, new metal time so let’s do it; we’ve got some serious atmospheric black metal from Perennial Isolation that sounds exactly as cold as its album cover (this is a very good thing), a slab of old school death metal from Celestial Sanctuary, some post-black metal with a message from Decline of The I, and an album I genre termed as ‘raucous’ from ’68 because it’s rock, metal, bluesy, but most of all it’s a DAMN GOOD TIME. And right now, we all need a damn good time. Right? Right! All that and much more awaits in the lengthy list below so hop to it and load up.Continue reading

Welcome to the weekend y’all. I for one am beyond stoked its here. Even if I’m gonna be running around buying (somehow) more furniture for my apartment, it still feels like I’ve got some more breathing room. The last couple days I barely had a minute to myself to unwind, but I’m excited to kick back with some tunes and fumble my way through vague Ikea instructions. And boy do we have tunes today. In addition to new albums from Ossuarium, Soen, Ithaca, and more heavy hitters, we bring you our own curated mix from across the sea of genres, for whatever mood your weekend takes. Click play, and don’t forget to double check to make sure you aren’t missing any hardware for your new computer desk.
