Another Saturday and another chance to look behind the veil of what we’ve been jamming recently. Let’s face it, the world is shit right now BUT, shit in, shit out. So, how about we all hit play at the same time and just float away on the ether of the latest from doombringers Pallbearer, or metalcore from Jesus Piece and FINALLY some new Raging Speedhorn. Same can be said for the new Of Feather and Bone joint and a new funeral doom epic from Frowning. All that and some classic 3 Inches of Blood and Power Trip and Vincent drops yet another The Mountain Goats track for good measure. But, that’s only the beginning so hit that play button below and float off somewhere better than where we are at the moment. Happy Saturday.
Something about summer. I always find my tastes changing a bit during the hot months, and layer on month four of working from home, never going to stores or seeing friends, and I find myself less and less drawn to the depressing and soul crushing metal that is normally my utter jam. So this month it’s a little more upbeat, a little more positive, a little more energetic, and of course, angry. Because there’s still so so much to be angry about.
Anyway, welcome to June.
This Thursday feels like it should be a Friday.
- We’ll start with the new dates Rammstein announced for their North American stadium tour. Unfortunately, my show got canceled. But I guess I can use the refund to pick a different one? …Assuming this new schedule even happens, of course.

- Sylvaine has released a vocal play-through of “Mørklagt”, taken from Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone, which dropped back in 2018. She’s also offering vocal lessons, which is pretty cool.
- In case you missed the news, Boris dropped a new album on July 3rd titled, simply, No. Naturally, we’re going to close with the new visualizer for “鏡 -Zerkalo-“. Give it a look below.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Welcome to another exciting edition of our Saturday morning playlist. This week, we’ve got the outrageously good Unleash the Archers single, one from the new Vile Creature album (also a confirmed good time), a smattering of post-hardcore favorites, and much more. Click down below if you’re not a false.
Were you afraid that by signing to a larger record label Vile Creature was going to soften its edges? That the music would fall into more generic genre trappings? I would venture a single glance at the cover to Glory, Glory! Apathy Took Helm! would quash any and all of those concerns. After two full lengths and an EP of crushing sludge doom that I could appreciate from a distance, here is the album that refuses to be held at arm’s length, that forces your eyes open to gaze upon its exquisite, grotesque beauty.
