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.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

    • Leading off, Morbid Angel frontman Steve Tucker has indicated that the band will not be playing any David Vincent-era songs on their upcoming tour dates. That “whoosh” you just heard was my already-limited interest in seeing them at MDF nosediving even more.
