Where the hell is my super amazing insane deluxe deluxe deluxe box edition of the new album from The Ocean? I’m getting impatient.
- A tour I’m not interested in greets us today! Sleep Signals, Atreyu, Memphis May Fire, and Ice Nine Kills. Great pile of NOPE in that one.
- And now for a tour I am interested in! Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar, Weedeater, The Obsessed, and Mothership. Much better.
- It wasn’t that I missed this, it was that I didn’t care about Canto for the last few months. But now we have Canto again, which means we finally mention the new Slipknot song. I give you… “All Out Life”.
- The video of the day comes to us from Gozu. This one is for “They Probably Know Karate”. They’ll be on the Metal Alliance Tour, which should be fun for them.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”

I’ve watched it a few times now. Still intense.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from over the weekend:
- As per usual, a whole bunch of bands dropped new albums on Friday, including Extremity, Valborg and others. Check out Josh’s recap for the full list.
- Iced Earth revealed the cover art for their upcoming album, Incorruptible, which drops June 16 on Century Media. Am I the only one that looked at this and thought of Theon vs. Ramsay on Game of Thrones?
The Obsessed are back after 20 years but really, it never felt like they went away. A large part of this can be attributed to the ridiculous amount of great releases featuring the whisky-soaked bootstrapping doom croon of guitarist/vocalist/legend Scott “Wino” Weinrich, whether it be St. Vitus, The Hidden Hand, Spirit Caravan, or his stellar solo material. But an even larger part comes from that “legend” tag, and I don’t place it there lightly. This is a guy upon whose voice and guitar the schools of doom and stoner rock were built. So the bigger question is not how Sacred, The Obsessed’s first album in 20 years holds up, but how it holds up after 20 years of bands and albums that used the band as a template for their own sound.

It’s time for Horns Up, your weekly catch-up on all things metal!
This week, Dan and Corey discuss the new Triptykon record “Melana Chasmata,” revisit classic albums from Daath and Fucked Up, and give two horns down to a number of not-so-metal metal music festivals. Corey also gives us his first of what’s sure to be many anti-Emmure rants–so intense it actually DEEPENS HIS VOICE!
All this and much, much more in our second episode of Horns Up, so check it out!
Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
