Moving on, new release time and we got them. Deathdoomsters Wharflurch are up with their sickening (in a good way, of course) full length debut, so go and get your Flurch’ on. More deathdoom in store from the UK’s Slimelord which based on their last EP, this EP will be a good time (side note: it is). Then we’ve got a pair of heavy metal’s finest with a single from Lady Beast and another entry from Portrait, both are excellent and make for one hell of a good time. So, there’s a thread here; although the world around us is in total disarray there’s still good times to be had with metal. Score. That’s your top four, but stick around for the rest of the list.

Well, I head out to California tomorrow and that’s a crazy concept to me.
