One of my favorite black metal projects, Waldgeflüster, are releasing their sixth album on September 24th. Dahoam will be out through AOP Records, and you can check out the lyric video for the first single, “Im Ebersberger Forst”, right here.
Rotting Christ are reissuing Der Perfekte Traum on vinyl, an EP originally released back in 1999. It will be available on September 3rd, with a couple different variants, exclusively through Vinylstore.gr.
Cradle of Filth have announced a special Halloween show, which will take place at The Roundhouse in London. It’ll serve as the album release show for Existence Is Futile, which drops on the 22nd through Nuclear Blast. And a memorable release show I’m sure it will be.
And we’ll close with some more black metal. This is the incredibly entertaining new music video from Furze for “Black Psych Tormentor”. That’s the title-track from a new album, set for an October 22nd release.
Coming at you a little later tonight because… reasons.
We’ll start with Archspire, because that’s a popular thing around these parts. They have a new album, titled Bleed the Future, dropping on October 29th through Season of Mist. Check out the music video for the first single, “Golden Mouth of Ruin” right here.
Underoath is apparently still a thing. Their seventh studio album, Voyeurist, is set for a January 14th release through Fearless Records. There’s a new single out, well ahead of that release date I’ll add, titled “Hallelujah”. I know like three people that are going to be absolutely psyched about this news.
Obviously we’re going to round the day off with the new music video from Deafheaven for “In Blur”, the third and final single from Infinite Granite. Just a reminder, that album drops on August 20th through Sargent House… and I cannot wait to get my copy in the mail.
I took a day off midweek for no reason whatsoever.
Abbath has announced his sophomore album, Outstrider, will be released on July 5th. Personally, I thought his debut was… fine? But Immortal‘s post-Abbath success last year means I will be paying close attention to this one.
Allegaeon dropped a new music video for “Extremophiles (B)”, in the continued build to the April 19th release of Apoptosis. I know at least one person pumped for that album, so let’s see what this clip is all about.
The new Underoath album is the best record Linkin Park never released.
If you’re looking for a pull quote, there you go. I’ll serve it up to you on a silver platter. I posted this last night on Twitter and the responses I got ran the gamut. Much in the same way that I think responses to Erase Me will cover the spectrum of“Kick ass! Underoath is back and better than ever!” to “What the hell were they thinking? Where’s my xhardcorex?!” I have a hunch that, once the hype and dust settles down, this record will end up being the most divisive of their career. I’ve listened to it about four or five times so far, with another spin happening right now as I write this. Continue reading →
