And then we have Aborted, who dropped the third single (and video) from ManiaCult. Check out the clip for the title-track now. That album drops on September 10th through Century Media, and can be pre-ordered on all the formats right here.
Let’s stick with Century Media for a bit. Vildhjarta have announced some more new things. Their next effort, titled måsstaden under vatten, will be out on October 15th, and you can already check out visualizers for two new tracks: “kaos2” and “toxin”.
And we may as well wrap up with the new video from The Absence, for “Faith In Uncreation”. That track is taken from Coffinized, their fifth studio album, which dropped back on June 25th through M-Theory Audio.
Life is sparking again, live shows are popping off left and right, and every week of new metal releases has many something’s for everyone. Things are looking up in those regards, so rejoice…or hail Satan. Or whatever you do these days. This week in new metal uncovers the newest ritual from Amenra, a return to holistically bleak beginnings from Withered, a slappin’ slab of death metal from The Absence, wicked ugly death metal from Cerebral Rot, and the next black/doom/punk chapter from Darkthrone. Oh, you noticed? Yes, there’s five up top and could’ve easily been more but in the context of getting you to the rest of what lies below, I chopped it at cinco. Plenty here for everyone, so go and fire up these band’s bank accounts, pronto. Support what you love with ferocity and sing its praises loud even if no one cares. You do, and that’s all that matters.
I am totally overwhelmed with shit to do today, so let’s hustle this thing out.
We’ll start with Byzantine, who have launched a new website, as well as a web series that will premiere this summer titled “Pick A Side”. Check out this teaser video. Sounds a like a pretty cool concept. They’ll also be on tour this summer to celebrate their 21st anniversary. You can find a link to that stuff at their new website as well.
Do you like beer as much as you like metal? Then you might want to check out Vox&HopsBrewtal North America. Participating breweries will be working with bands to release unique, collaborative brews… and this is exactly what I need in my life right now. Learn more here, there are some pretty awesome names involved.
Alright, I’m running out of steam. Let’s close with the new video from The Absence for the title-track from the upcoming new album, Coffinized. That’s out on June 25th through M-Theory Audio. This video announcement was in our inbox at least three times, just enough to convince me to close the week with it.
Why are the short weeks always the god damn longest?
Heavy Temple, a name I’m thrilled to be talking about again, have released the first single from their new album. Lupi Amoris is set for a June 18th release through Magnetic Eye Records (pre-order link, of course), and you can stream “The Maiden” right now.
Vulture have also shared information about their new album. Dealin’ Death will be released on May 21st through Metal Blade Records, and you can pre-order that here, while also checking out the new video for “Malicious Souls”. I encourage doing both.
Lastly, the new music video from melodic death metallers The Absence. Check out “Choirs of Sickness” immediately below, a new single from Coffinized. Their 5th studio release will be out on June 25th through M-Theory Audio.
