Ok, there is a lot to get to today, let’s have at it.

  • Is anyone else either staying up super late or waking up super early to pre-order the Cinematic Tour 2020 release from Enslaved? I’m going to do my best, because everything I’ve seen to this point looks absolutely incredible.

  • Bodysnatcher shared a cover of the classic Hatebreed track “Smash Your Enemies”. There’s a limited edition 7″ available here, or you can just check out the visualizer on YouTube.
  • And that’s enough for Thursday. We’ll close with the brand new video from Pestilence for “Morbvs Propagationem”. That track is taken from Exitivm, which is out on June 25th (Agonia Records).
