Paradise Lost
Paradise Lost

Our hearts go out to all those affected from Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in its aftermath. Please find a legit way to help and donate or do whatever you can in whatever capacity you’re able. So many need your help right now and will into the coming months. This is not something that will right itself quickly.

If you’re still here it’s time for new metal and, as usual, we have plenty to go around. Paradise Lost kicks us off this week with Medusa, their fifteenth full length…let that sink in for a moment…got it? Good, because you need this dose of heavy doom/death metal — this far along and the band just does not lose any steam whatsoever. Next up is Corspehammer with their EP Posesión and Chris said it best with this: “Bathory meets Venom and has a quick lunch gushing over how amazing Motörhead are.” Tasty indeed, so get on it. Moving along is the debut album, Seo Mere Saetanfrom Dead Woman’s Ditch and it’s a terrifying yet hefty amalgamation of death, black, doom and sludge that glues your attention span for 40 plus minutes. Rounding out the opening slots is a black metal Split release from At Dusk and Sacerdos that perfectly balances striking ambiance with vicious fury, highly recommended. Four down and many more to go so stick around and explore with us. Continue reading
