Drowse dropped a cover of Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed” today, and that feels like a thing worth checking out. So… here you go! That’s from a nu metal covers compilation from The Flenser titled Send the Pain Below, which you can grab on vinyl through their Series Three membership.
And we’ll close some Roadburn Redux material from last year. Horte shared footage of “Valoa on liikaa” today, and you can watch it below. That track is taken from Maa antaa yön vaientaa, which dropped on August 27th through Pelagic Records.
There is plenty to discuss today, so let’s get right into it.
We’ll start with a couple of reissues. First, Yob is releasing a deluxe version of Atma, which I am super excited about. That will be out on April 8 through Relapse, and you can pre-order that here. Or, of course, through Bandcamp. Fun fact, Yob also has a few live dates coming up, including FOUR at Saint Vitus in February. So jump on that as well.
Necronomicon have announced a new livestream show, “Vivus Verum”, scheduled for November 12th. That will be premiered at the Season of Mist YouTube channel, and the event will be in support of their latest album, Unus, which dropped last year. Here’s a trailer for the event, as well as an opportunity to set a reminder.
Okilly Dokilly have announced “Tourdiddly Do” 2022 dates, running from April 14th through May 7th. But it will be your last chance to see them, maybe ever, as they announced an indefinite hiatus immediately following the tour. Regardless, we should all take great joy in knowing this project ever existed at all.
Since we have an opportunity to close out the day with The Ocean, you bet I’m going to seize it. Check out the clip for “Jurassic | Cretaceous”, taken from their Roadburn Redux performance, below. As a reminder, Phanerozoic Live will be out on November 26th through Metal Blade and Pelagic Records.
The news seems rather light today, but I’m sure I can dig up a few things.
This isn’t exactly a breaking update, but it’s worth mentioning either way. Shadow Woods Metal Fest is returning this year, scheduled for the weekend of August 27th, and Panopticon has been announced as the headliner. Naturally, an ideal setting for such a performance. Tickets are available here.
Norwegian black metal crew Vulture Lord are releasing their first album in 18 years. Desecration Rite is set for a release on June 20th through Odium Records, and is available for pre-order here. We’ll loop back with a new track and/or more information once it surfaces.
And then we have the studio performance of “Neverland” from Crown. The End of All Things was an April release through Pelagic Records, and so far is proving to be one of my favorite listens of the year. Pelagic has been on a roll. Anyway, check out the clip below.
Oh shit, another stream event. Two of them actually! Voivod have announced streaming shows on May 30th and June 27th, the second and third installment of the “Hypercube Sessions”. You can purchase tickets for each event individually, or as a bundle.
Capra released a new video today for “Medusa”, and that sounds like the right thing to wrap up the week with. In Transmission is officially out today through Blacklight Media/Metal Blade, so be sure to pick it up here.
Oh look, another new Gojira track. Check out the lyric video for “Into The Storm“, the latest taken from Fortitude. I haven’t listened to this one yet, but I will say that April 30th release date suddenly feels somewhat close, and I am quite excited.
And we’ll close with the new track from Myronath titled “Evigt Mörker”. That one is taken from their upcoming new album, Djevelkraft, which will be out through Hellstain Productions sometime in the near future. Not sure exactly when, I didn’t look very hard.
