What goodies do we got today?
- Harakiri For The Sky have announced their first North American tour, and they’ll be on the road with Numenorean and Eneferens. The dates are in May and June, so we’re still a few months out, but this should be one to put on the calendar.
- But in even bigger tour news, it looks like Rammstein may be headed back to North America in the near future. The specific locations and dates haven’t been revealed yet, but if this graphic is any indication… I will be fully prepared to throw my money at this thing.
- A whole bunch of stuff from Igorrr today. The next album, Spirituality And Distortion, will be out on March 27th through Metal Blade Records. A new single titled “Very Noise” is available now, as well as some killer pre-order packages.
- Wombbath, who always strike a nostalgic chord with me because of their performance at my last MDF probably ever, are preparing for the release of their fourth full-length album. It will be called Choirs Of The Fallen, and is scheduled for a March 6th release via Soulseller Records. You can check out a new track, “A Vulgar Declaration”, immediately below. Enjoy.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
The Dark Souls franchise may own this title, but Aldia’s got nothing on me.

Welcome to another Saturday mixtape. We’ve got a whole lot of good stuff put together for you today, and seeing as how I’m battling my first hangover of the Christmas party season I won’t waste too much time pontificating over it. Besides, you trust us at this point, right? Dive in at your leisure.
Welcome back to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist, guaranteed to wake you up faster than a cup of coffee and a Red Bull combined. Every week we’re bringing you the best of what we’ve been listening to in our spare time, because we know you’re curious about what our staff do with their off-hours. This week, Josh stacks up Cloak and Tribulation side-by-side in a battle of goth-n-roll, Hera combines black metal, melodeath, and Rammstein in a quintessential Hera move, and I throw in a tribute to an artist I’ve long admired who unfortunately passed away this past week, the inimitable Daniel Johnston. Sit down, tune in, and get your weekend started right.
And just like that, we’re halfway through 2019. Also, nearly into August at this point – late is the name of the game, folks. Anyway, catch our most recent entries into some favorites we have at the halfway point, here, here, and here, then scroll below for a few more we had left to highlight from the second quarter that we either missed or needed to discuss again. It’s been that kind of year to where some things just warrant extra discussion and it shows no stopping or letting up either. Consider this a Circle Pit of two, two enter and two leave…wait. Just do it and maybe you’ll come away with a new favorite. Continue reading
