Let’s talk about something near and dear to my heart; it’s October and nearly Halloween. ‘Tis the season for horror of all sorts, skulls and pumpkins, and fall vistas that look like the intro to many of the early Halloween movies. At least we’ve got that to get excited about. But also, it’s Monday which means new metal time so there’s another happy thing. This week brings us the next chapter of Pallbearer‘s trajectory which finds them back at their concise and to the point doom but, really, better than ever.

Fall is upon us and I am not one bit upset about it.
- British metallers Raging Speedhorn are dropping a new album on October 23rd through Red Weed Records titled Hard To Kill. Pre-orders are available at this location, and a video for the title-track is out now.
- Pre-orders for the reissue of Rivers of Nihil‘s Monarchy are now available over at Metal Blade. Their sophomore album originally dropped back in 2015, and these LP reissues are out on October 16th. So we’re close!
- We haven’t heard from Corey Taylor in the last 12 minutes, so what’s he up to? Apparently planning a once in a lifetime streaming event that will include Slipknot, Stone Sour, and solo stuff… and apparently a whole lot more. Here’s a trailer. And here’s a ticket link.
- Icelandic black metal crew Auðn are releasing a new full-length on October 30th titled Vökudraumsins fangi. That will be out through Season of Mist, and a video for the first single, “Ljóstýra”, can be viewed immediately below.
Ein Bier… bitte.”
