The inbox has been blowing up today, which means there has to be some good stuff in there.
Dream Unending made waves last year with their debut, Tide Turns Eternal. And now, less than a year from that release, it’s time to prepare for their sophomore effort. Song of Salvation drops on November 11th through 20 Buck Spin, and “Secret Grief” is streaming now.
Fallujah released Empyrean today through Nuclear Blast (it’s quite good), and to mark the occasion they shared a new visualizer for “Mindless Omnipotent Master”. Give it a watch here. And if you need more reading material around that album, here’s Ian’s review.
To jump into the weekend, we’ll close with the latest from Revocation. The video for “Nihilistic Violence” is below, a track obviously taken from Netherheaven. Their latest album dropped today through Metal Blade.
This week, much like last week, can go right in the fucking shredder.
Ingested are releasing Ashes Lie Still on November 4th through Metal Blade, and today they unveiled the video for “Tides of Glass”. It’s awesome. Be sure to catch them on tour with Lorna Shore this coming October and November.
Florida black/doom metal collective Worm are releasing a new EP on October 28th through 20 Buck Spin, titled Bluenothing. I really enjoyed Foreverglade from last year, so yes I’m excited about this. Anyway, here’s a teaser for ya.
We’re going to close the day, and maybe my week, with the second track from Black Anvil off of Regenesis. This one is titled “8 Bit Terror”, and you can see the video for it below. For what it’s worth, I enjoy this track much more than the last offering. That album drops on November 4th through Season of Mist.
It was Dead End Kings that officially got me hooked on Katatonia… forever. So I’m happy to announce that Peaceville is releasing the 10th anniversary of that incredible album on November 11th. And I truly cannot believe that release was 10 years ago. Anyway, here’s a preview link.
Closing out with something from the Prosthetic camp, we have the latest from Slugcrust. Their debut album, Ecocide, is out on September 9th, and the video for “Demise Promise” is available right below. Enjoy.
I really wanted to get to this yesterday because there was plenty of good stuff going on, but alas, I guess I’ll share all that a day late.
For instance, this Katatonia tour with The Oceanis one that I absolutely cannot miss. The dates are in November, and you can bet I’m going to be attending at least one of them. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday.
And closing out our Wednesday that feels like it should be a Friday, we have something new from Kampfar. Give “Flammen fra Nord” a listen below. Pre-order Til Klovers Takt right here. That drops on November 11.
I’ve gotta admit, I had no idea that Psycroptic has been around as long as they have until I listened to Buke’s interview with drummer Dave Haley (go and listen to it, like, now). I have listened to them before, but my introduction to them came from 2018’s As the Kingdom Drowns, and the reason I checked that album out in the first place was because the cover art was created by Mariusz Lewandowski (maaaaaaaan, RIP). Of course, when I listened, I was blown away by the deft mix of tech and death metal, and when I saw we got the promo for Divine Council, it was a no-brainer for me to grab it.
