Greetings once again, y’all. As another week comes to a close, we’ve got another batch of killer songs that we’ve been listening to in our free time to share with you. It’s a crazy time of year for music listening; there’s a push to finish out the year listening to all the albums still coming out in the next three weeks while also going back over everything that came out earlier in the year to flesh out those year-end lists we all love to read (and yell about) so much. For now, forget about deadlines and distractions, and enjoy our weekly present to you. Catch you next week.
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from the last few days:
Leading off, an amusing tidbit from the world of Napalm Death: apparently, the band’s Spotify streams have gone up more than 200% since frontman Barney Greenway appeared on a radio show teaching ex-Labour Party leader Ed Miliband how to scream. (Miliband still can’t scream.)
The guys are back from MDF 2016 and ready to recap all of their shenanigans on this special Maryland Deathcast! To do that, they walk through all four days of the festival and highlight their favorite sets (including Dragged Into Sunlight, Horrendous, Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin and more), then share some field recordings they gathered with Corey’s fancy new mic on Sunday. Plus, as always, a Heaven and Hell portion.
All that and…not all that much more in Episode 44, but check it out anyway!
