- Vader has announced a North American tour next February. Abysmal Dawn and Hideous Divinity will be supporting. That should be a fun one. Sounds like the set will focus on some album anniversaries, which is also a cool concept.

- Pagan Altar fans will be happy to hear that Mythical & Magical and The Time Lord have been released again in basically all formats via Temple of Mystery Records. Those are available starting today.
- Here’s a new video from Motionless In White for “Another Life”. I didn’t watch it, but you sure might.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
