Once again, beer got in the way of clearing the inbox on a Friday night. So Saturday morning it is!
Let’s start off with some blackened deathcore. Mélancolia announced their debut album, HissThroughRottenTeeth, which is scheduled for an April 21 release through Greyscale Records and Nuclear Blast Records. Give “[Inure]” a listen here.
Next, we’ll jump over to Killing Joke. They released a brand new single, “Full Spectrum Dominance”, which comes in celebration of their sold out headlining show at Royal Albert Hall on March 12. That’s available through Spinefarm, and can be heard here.
Holy shit, it’s Winger! To celebrate 35 years, they’re releasing Seven on May 5. Their first new release since 2014 can be pre-ordered here, and be sure to check out “Proud Desperado” while you’re at it.
It’s Friday. Stay tuned for Episode 5 of the Horns Up Podcast followed by The Dump, coming at you bright and early tomorrow. Ya know, by the crack of noon.
Anyway, I’ve seen many, many review of Agalloch’s The Serpent and the Sphere but I’ve held firm. Only a few more days until I allow myself to listen to it. But, there are more things going on than my anticipation of this album. So, let’s get these Quickies out so that I can drink (more):
