If you’re reading this there are two possibilities at play, either of which warrant a hearty congratulations:
It’s the end of the year, and you found the strength, courage and forbearance to get through the infested muck that was 2020. Congratulations! I don’t know what 2021 will bring, but let’s put the future aside for a moment and just revel in survival, and talk about some great music.
It’s an indeterminate time in the future, after the apocalypse, and the collective hive mind has integrated into the data streams and come across this post in a random search string query to ascertain various data points about the distant past. Congratulations! I’m not alive to know what the Time Lords have in mind for the future, but let’s put that aside for a moment and just revel in whatever constitutes life in your existence, and talk about some great music.
Bask dropped a couple riff and beat rundown videos over on their YouTube channel today. The clips feature tracks “Ramble Beyond” and “Three White Feet”, the latter of which was taken from 2019’s release through Season of Mist, III.
Into Eternity dropped a new song, “Nuclear”, over the weekend. Feel free to stream or download it here, and be sure to check out the playthrough video immediately below. We can also expect a full-length sometime next year, which definitely does not suck.
Mayhem guitarist Teloch, formally known as Morten Bergeton Iversen, has launched his new synthwave project titled Bergeton. Miami Murder will be out on October 15th, but you can listen to “Lambo” right now.
Sepultura dropped a new video yesterday for “Guardians of the Earth”, a track taken from Quadra, which is out now on Nuclear Blast. That video was created in collaboration with Amazon Frontlines. Check it out.
Fates Warning have revealed details behind their next album. Long Day Good Night will be out on November 6th through Metal Blade Records. You can pre-order that one right here. There’s a new track in there as well!
Oceans Of Slumber have released the fourth single from their upcoming self-titled new album, which drops on September 4th through Century Media. Check out “To the Sea (A Tolling of the Bells)” immediately below.
I think we should close with some Venezuelan death metal. This is the new video from Sentencia for “En Las Sombras”, a track taken from Solve et Coagula, which is set for a July 31st release through Wormholedeath/The Orchard. Enjoy!
