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.

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!
The Middle East in Cambridge has become a bit of a home away from home for me over the last couple of years. While I have grown familiar with virtually all of the Boston venues, this particular establishment has been the recent go-to when it comes to concerts. This has proven to be a blessing and a curse. I love the Middle East with its 194 person capacity upstairs… it’s one of the best places to see a show because of it’s up close and personal atmosphere. But at the same time, the lighting and tight spaces makes it’s a pain in the ass to photograph at. But I digress.
