Ah yes, the glorious return to the real world. Zero sarcasm in that…or not. Definitely was a much needed break that went by way too fast, but here we are with another new release list that’s sure to strike an arc with everyone. And, it’ll give me the swift kick in the ass I need on my first day back to reality. Score. First up we’ve got the masters of bleak blackened doom, Krigsgrav, with yet another stunner, then we’ve got death metal from Decrepisy and a vinyl edition from Perilaxe Occlusion (both of which I highly recommend), then we’ve got an intense mix of noise, black metal, and grind from Vessel of Iniquity, and of course, a ton more to follow. Happy hunting.Continue reading
We’re going to keep things short and sweet today. Normally I’d be more wordy in these things, but I’m dead tired today. Last night (as of this writing) I caught the LA date of the Primitive Man & Ulthar mini-tour. It was an insanely cool show; it was my first time seeing Ulthar and they did not disappoint in the slightest, and the songs from Primitive Man’s upcoming split with Hell (more on that from yours truly later on down the line) sound uglier and more heavy than getting an anvil dropped on your face. Local support from grind/powerviolence crew Whelm and doomy death metal purveyors Teeth rounded out the night in fine form. All in all a great night, but getting home later than my Old Man Body can handle on a weeknight isn’t doing me any favors today.
Maybe that wasn’t as short as I had expected. Oh well. Time to let the music speak for itself. Catch you next time.
