And that, of course, refers to Fire In The Mountains. A new batch of bands was announced, including Yellow Eyes, Visigoth, Lykotonon, and more. The 2022 version of this festival is going to be absolutely massive. Tickets are available at this location.
Megadeth has named a bassist for the upcoming tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed. James LoMenzo will be stepping in for that run of shows, after Megadeth parted ways with David Ellefson. Those dates start August 20th in Austin, Texas. Tickets are available here.
I’m going to drop in a couple new videos today, one of which comes from Benediction. Here’s the new video for “Tear Off These Wings”, from their most recent album, Scriptures, which dropped last October through Nuclear Blast.
And lastly, The Devil’s Trade released a new live video for “Három Árva”, a track taken from last year’s The Call of the Iron Peak (Season of Mist). Give it a watch below. It’s awesome.
Late again. However, still in time for whatever rowdiness you may have up your sleeve for a Saturday. We’ve got new Cannibal Corpse, Cult of Luna and Gravesend. Plus a nasty one from Bonecarver, and choice cuts from Baest, Biesy, and Visigoth. All that and much more is hiding behind that playlist button below. Hit it and go crazy.
Howdy y’all and welcome to another Saturday morning playlist. This week, I went and saw Dashboard Confessional again so you know what that means, we’ve got all the new singles to keep you covered, plus classic Blind Guardian and Crowbar cuts, and because our Fearless Leader is who he is, just a little Merle Haggard to round things out. It’s a full house of picks this time around, so check all that out and more at the link below.
Crypt Sermon fans, if you’re in the NYC area, be sure to check out the album release show for The Ruins of Fading Light. The album is tremendous, which is why I’m mentioning this. It’s October 4th and Visigoth, Magic Circle, and Sanhedrin will also be there. Wow.
Oh how excited I was to see this Cult of Luna news sitting in the inbox today. The new album, A Dawn to Fear, will be out on September 20th via Metal Blade. Better yet, we get this video for “The Silent Man” today.
Welcome back to another edition of Embracing the Descent and another opportunity to catch some fire from this week’s incoming metal. At this point we’re pretty sure you got it but for a recap: if it’s your first visit, we briefly discuss a handful of the current week’s new releases that stood out for whatever reason and maybe, from time to time, a week behind. We won’t be hitting everything because a 40 – 60 entry piece ain’t happening and who’s got that kind of time anyway. Let’s jump in and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent. Continue reading →
