Things That Probably Disappointed Me in 2018 – Corey’s List

The Ocean

Oh boy. Honestly, I probably should have waited until all my year end lists published before diving into albums I had lofty expectations for. Oh well. The good news is, out of the five albums I previewed (which is definitely the wrong word to use here) back in January, four of them have been released and the fifth definitely won’t be anytime soon. If ever. So I can talk about most of these! Shall we? Continue reading

Alright, let’s try this again. You may recall that the list of projects I was anticipating in 2017 included one (well, maybe two) that weren’t quite ready. By a year. So, as we continue to bring in the new year, you can expect by 2018 list to feature some overlap. I apologize for that. Either way, this looks like it’s going to be an absolute monster of a year with some of the albums we expect to be released. Once again, I will highlight five that I am looking forward to most. In no particular order.

It’s been awhile. And it will be awhile until we do this again. Enjoy it while you’ve got it.

  • Corrosion Of Conformity have been releasing a No Cross No Crown video series, and part four is now available. These guys will be on the road the next few months and the new album drops January 12th. So yeah, do that.
  • Ministry have announced a run of shows with Chelsea Wolfe next March and April. Their new album, AmeriKKKant, drops March 9th. Political metal! Hurray! There’s a new song called “Antifa” in there somewhere, too.
  • I can’t believe I’m still sharing these damn rumors. Danny Carey seems pretty confident that a new Tool album will come our way in 2018. You know who isn’t confident? Literally EVERYONE ELSE.
  •  Finally, here’s an impressive new track from Harakiri For The Sky called “You Are The Scars”. 10+ minutes of post-black metal awesomeness. Their new album, Arson, will be out February 16th.
