It’s a Friday, and it’s snowing. It’s going to be a good weekend…
But first! A new project I am VERY excited about. Majesties, a melodic death metal trio featuring the minds behind Obsequiae and Inexorum, are releasing Vast Reaches Unclaimed on March 3rd through 20 Buck Spin. The hype is real. Give “The World Unseen” a listen here.
Symphonic metallers Seven Spires are releasing a new live album on March 17th, titled Live at Progpower USA XXI. Check out the footage of “Ghosts Of Yesterday” below. They’re also on tour in both Europe and North America in the coming months, so get on that as well.
We’ll close with some solid black metal from Somniate. This track is called “Of Fragrance and Light” and is taken from their debut album, The Meyrinkian Slumber, which drops on June 30th through Lavadome Productions.
Emmure is back with a new track called “Pigs Ear”. Give it a listen if you feel so inclined for some reason. Emmure is also touring with As I Lay Dying and After The Burial the next couple months, just in case you needed another reason to roll your eyes.
I think I only did one of these last week, yeah? Let’s fix that.
I stumbled on this and it seems kind of fun. Ghoul have announced their very own comic book! Well, almost. It’s in the Kickstarter phase right now. And while I have mixed opinions about such a means of accumulating funding, I must admit that some of these perks are pretty cool.
One of my favorite bands going, Insomnium, have announced a North American tour with Omnium Gatherum and Seven Spires. Does this sound familiar? It should. The Insomnium Gatherum tour came through back in 2015, however Niilo had to hang back that time. Not that it matters, this is a can’t-miss show either way. Oh, and they also dropped a new video for “Valediction”. Heart Like A Grave drops on October 4th.
With just a couple of days until the guys leave for Migration Fest, Corey returns to the fold for another Concert Pod! He talks about seeing Exmortus, Spellcaster and Seven Spires in Boston, as well as Skeletonwitch, Magic Circle, Lich King and Black Mass in Somerville, MA. Dan, on the other hand? He’s got stories from Carcass and Paul McCartney to speak of.
All that and much, much more in Episode 53, so jump on in and take a listen!
