Initial Descent: October 25 – 31, 2020

Sarcator

Finally, It’s Halloween week. Not sure what you’ll be doing but as long as it involves horror movies and metal, all will be right in the world for at least a day. Since metal is in the equation, we have a looooong list for this week. So long, in fact, it seems everyone waited for Halloween to push out an album. Good news for us. Anyway, Sarcator open the pit of flayed bodies with their Swedeaththrash and holy smokes is this so crazy good for such a young band—I mean, age 16-21. All that to say, jump on this immediately. And, the mighty Carcass return for a quick hitter EP but quick hitter doesn’t mean slack on quality, it’s Carcass so you know what you’re getting. Stälker put both a classic metal feel and tons of demonspeed in their effort and those vocals? GLORIOUS. Rounding out the top spots is Wolverine who are back with their lush but impressive progressive metal and in audio visual format which is nothing short of amazing so please get your ears, and eyes, on this come Saturday. No matter what you do with Halloween this year, you’ll have plenty of metal to take along for the ride. Just don’t forget to load up on blood and gore as well.
