At least we’ve got that to get excited about. But also, it’s Monday which means new metal time so there’s another happy thing. This week brings us the next chapter of Pallbearer‘s trajectory which finds them back at their concise and to the point doom but, really, better than ever.

Hi. I’m on “vacation”, but figured I would spend an hour picking through emails. Let’s see what I’ve missed…
- Icelandic death/progressive metal outfit Cult of Lilith released details for their debut full-length. Mara will be out on September 4th through Metal Blade Records, and you can listen to a new single, titled “Cosmic Maelstrom”, right now.
- Wacken Open Air has lined up a worldwide streaming event from July 29th through August 1st (original festival dates), called Wacken World Wide. It sounds like an awesome, immersive, streaming experience. I, for one, cannot wait for it.
- Check out this new single from Undeath, who recently signed on with Prosthetic Records. It’s the title track from the upcoming debut album Lesions Of A Different Kind, and it features Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder. Dope, right?
- Suicide Silence have released a live music video for “Disengage”, taken from their July 6th London show as part of their virtual world tour. Watch it out below, and if you want to check out one of the upcoming dates, you can purchase tickets here.
