“To truly understand the essence of antiquity, learn the lore of the land. Become the atavist. Embark on a journey through the aeons of time.”

  • The Ocean have unveiled new details behind the release of Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic, which will be out on September 25th through Metal Blade and Pelagic Records. You can also listen to a new track, titled “Jurassic | Cretaceous”, and this may come as a surprise, but it’s really friggin’ good.
  • Emma Ruth Rundle dropped a new track today called “Staying Power”. This one was actually recorded during the On Dark Horses sessions, but wasn’t released until now. It can be purchased at this location, if you feel so inclined.
  • Saor has announced reissues of Roots and Aura through Season of Mist. The release dates are scheduled for August 21st and September 11th, respectively. They can be pre-ordered now at this location.
  • And we will close with this new video from Psycroptic for “Beyond The Black”. That one is taken from the 2018 album, As The Kingdom Drowns, available through Prosthetic Records.

Welcome to another Saturday mixtape, friends. Today we bring you a triple dose of Intronaut, a new Cirith Ungol song (which is not something I thought I’d ever get to say), and a host of other jams of various and sundry genres. As always, take a listen below.

How long has it been? Over a week? Jesus, I’m sorry about that. Blame marathon training.

I’ve been listening to these In Flames tracks way more than I probably should.

I’m baaaaaaaack.  Thanks to Josh for covering for me while I was away.  I spent a great two weeks back in the icy winter of my home, Chicago, IL.  I got to spend the holidays with all my family, catch up with some old friends from high school and college, eat and drink myself into oblivion, and watch my California-Born-and-Raised partner’s face light up when some unexpected snow flurries blew in.  It was exactly the kind of recharge I needed after the trash fire that was 2018.  I feel ready to get back in the saddle again, and what better way to do that than share all the good stuff I and my cohorts have been jamming over our respective holiday-time adventures?  Check below for a list of tunes to whip your year into shape.
