Burial In The Sky on their new album “The Consumed Self,” playing multiple instruments, history of the band, Kenny G, and much more!

Burial In the Sky

Burial In The Sky‘s third full length The Consumed Self is an absolute beast of progressive and technical death metal that easily stands out from the crowd with its clarity, punch, and originality.

Album Review: Burial In The Sky — “The Consumed Self”

Ever since my interest in tech death began to expand, I had always heard about Burial In The Sky (Burial), but I never thought to actually listen to any of their music because I was too enamored by what other bands were doing to pay attention.

CANTO: Killswitch Engage, Batushka, Intercepting Pattern, and More


  • Killswitch Engage is giving As Daylight Dies the vinyl treatment for the first time. You can pre-order your copy here. I’m going to pass on this one, but throw some Alive or Just Breathing my way and I will definitely catch it.
  • The Metal Blade version of Batushka (Bart-ushka) dropped a new single yesterday titled “ИРМОС II / IRMOS II”, and is available for streaming over at Bandcamp. It rips, but I still prefer the other Batushka. Yes, this is all still very confusing.
  • Grind legends Rotten Sound have announced a live show, that will also be streamed, on July 25th in Vaasa, Finland. Honestly, seems like a fair way to go. Attend in person if you’re cool with that, or stream it if you’re still hesitant.
  • Finally, this debut from German progressive metal outfit Intercepting Pattern for “Rebiogenesis”. The Encounter will be out on September 4th through Rising Nemesis Records.
