More and more it seems the more you give, the more they want, and the less they do for themselves. The “they” here is cloudy, but I know I’m not the only one that relates to this statement. If you’re a grown person and rely on everyone and everything else to figure the entire world out for you, stop that shit and grow a spine. It’s annoying for the rest of us. Yes, I’m salty and what comes up comes out so there it is. Anywho, new metal this week in the form of death metal from Qrixkor and Domination Campaign, sludgy doom from 71TONMAN, black metal from Unendlich, and a whole heap more hiding out in the list below. There’s medicine for what ails in these lists and I’ve found so much solace in this violent, doomy, brutal, charred, slamming, sludgy, angry music we love that it fights back the negativity. Or, at least, most of it. Find your golden unicorn below and love it like no other.Continue reading
If I’m being honest, I’m still reeling from the wrecking ball that was last week’s lineup of new releases and STILL on both Fluids and Inhuman Condition. However, the new release weeks roll on and for this one we’ve got another power metal trip from Hammer King, a death metal debut from the fiery Cyrpta, and Eremit trudges through sludge and doom like kings. But, and as always, there’s much more below to explore so hop to it and enjoy the adventure.Continue reading

Somehow, someway, there is no alcohol in my house. Suboptimal.
- Melodic thrash group Emissary have emerged after a 25 year hiatus. The current plan is the release of a brand new album, which will be available on CD and vinyl, sometime later this year. It’ll be out through Underground Power Records, so keep an eye for updates.
- Belgian melodic death metal band Fragmentum are releasing their second album this coming April. Specifically, April 16th is set as the international release date of Masters Of Perplexity. I can’t find a link confirming that, so take my word for it. Keep an eye out for a new track, which we should expect later this week.
- Dang, we have another band ending a 25 year hiatus. UK doom crew Enchantment are releasing a new album, comprised of material that was originally written for a 1994/1995 sophomore effort, through Transcending Obscurity and Cosmic Key Creations. More details coming soon…
- Harakiri For The Sky released another video for a track taken from Mӕre, which was released through AOP Records. Check out the clip for “Us Against December Skies” immediately below.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Hail and well met, friends! It’s been a hot minute since this column was live, but I’ve got the tunes and the libations, and I think they both deserve a place to be talked about. Let’s get into it.
