Slipknot have announced the Knotfest Roadshow 2022. The first leg features In This Moment and Jinjer, with Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 joining the second leg. Basically, the whole thing runs from March through June, and tickets will be available here starting Friday.
Soilwork has announced their new bassist. Rasmus Ehrnborn has officially stepped in full time, after featuring on A Whisp Of The Atlantic and recent live performances. Better still, it looks like we have new Soilwork coming this year.
Great. Now I have to reintegrate with society. Ugh.
Fleshgod Apocalypse dropped some exciting news today. The Italian symphonic death metallers are returning to North America in 2020 with support from The Agonist. But wait, there’s more! They’re bringing a classical string quartet with them! That’s certainly going to take their live show to another level… not that it isn’t ridiculous (in a good way) already.
So this is a wicked bummer because I super enjoyed the debut album (see also: only album) from Khôrada, but it appears that project ended as quickly as it started. It was a very quiet announcement, with a couple members dropping info on the socials and whatnot. I’m not going to direct more people in that direction because that’s always a tired game, but here’s the link to the Metal Archives page if you need visual confirmation of some kind.
Not really much along the lines of new videos today, so here’s an animated clip for Lunar’s track “Comfort”. Prog metal on a Tuesday, why not? Their latest album, Eidolon, dropped last Friday through Divebomb records.
Here we are at the dawn of October. One of the finest months of the year, obviously. What better way to kick it off than with a stacked list of metal that is as varied as the many horror movies you need to watch over the next 31 days. Anyway, Initial Descent knows you need it so, this week we have the amazing new album The Dark Hereafter from Winterfylleth, a jazzy avant-garde self titled debut from Brain Tentacles, Okkultokrati‘s Raspberry Dawn that is satan rock at it’s finest and of course Sorceress from everyone’s favorite target Opeth. For everyone still mad about the whole no death metal thing, news flash, they’re still great. Also Veilburner returns with their third full length of inherently evil and challenging black/death/experimental The Obscene Rite and Halshug cracks the earth in half with their brutal new album Sort Sind. Plenty here for you to enjoy so without further delay, get busy after the jump. Continue reading →
Canadian metalcore quintet, The Agonist certainly have people believing in them. That fact is easily evidenced by the sheer quality of the video below. Their upcoming release Five will be released via Napalm Records on September 30, 2016. The release will be their fifth full-length to date and features some of the bands most balanced, aggressive work to date. Pre-orders for Five, in various formats and exclusive bundle packages, are available now at The Napalm Records Webstore.
