Just the Tip: August 26’s New Releases in Brief

It’s new release Tuesday! Here’s what we’ll be checking out on this week’s episode:

August 26, 2014

Opeth – Pale Communion (Roadrunner)

Alraune – The Process of Self-Immolation (Profound Lore)

Force of Darkness – Absolute Verb of Chaos and Darkness (Iron Pegasus)

Yes, we know much of the metal community’s been listening to the Alraune record for a couple of months now–hell, we’ve even given it a few listens ourselves. But today apparently marks its official release on Spotify, so that’s why we’ll be discussing it in this week’s episode. Anyway, give these a listen and check back for our thoughts in Episode 20 later this week!

Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
