I photographed a show last night! …And am aggressively paying for it today. I’ve missed this.
Let’s lead off with Gaahls WYRD, who announced a new mini album titled The Humming Mountain. The official release date is November 5th through Season of Mist, but you can check out one of the five new tracks, the title track, right now.
Gemini Syndrome have announced the “Initiation” U.S. tour, that runs from October 28th through November 27th. They’ll be supported directly by Ovtlier and Oh! The Horror, and tickets can be acquired here.
Whitechapel dropped another new single and video from Kin, titled “A Bloodsoaked Symphony”, which we’ll close with on this fine Thursday. Just a reminder, that album drops on October 29th through Metal Blade.
Another day, another dollar. If things were easy, we’d all sign up for the gravy train, but it just ain’t so. And, that train is long gone. Thinking out loud there…anyway, new metal time! Let’s get to it, Grave Miasma put forth probably their most deathy death metal album yet and I’m all here for it, Hore rolls out a freaking banger of a black ‘n’ roll album, Oldskull brings about memories of Morrisound era Floridian death metal, and Wolverine FINALLY are releasing their epic feature length audio / visual album on digital and vinyl—better believe I’m picking that up, excellent dark metal there. So, with no gravy train in sight, head below to find a new favorite from this long list of new releases. Drop some coin and enjoy the trip.
It has rained every single damn day this week. Which, really, is just what I need less than two weeks removed from a breakup. Good job, universe! Oh well, May’s upon us. There’s no way it won’t improve upon April from a lifeical standpoint, but it may also do so from a metallic perspective as well. Quite a bit to look forward to over the next 25 days.
That starts today, with new stuff from U.K. death crew Grave Miasma, who release their gnarly new EP, Endless Pilgrimage. I’ll have a full review of that thing up early next week, but as a pre-emptive TL;DR — it’s worth your time. We’ve also got new albums from Alaric, Vektor…hell, even one from not-metal-but-yes-awesome synthwave mainstay Perturbator. It’s a solid week, so let’s jump in. Here’s what’s on tap for Friday, May 6: Continue reading →
