The year has started off a little slow, but let’s see what emerged today.
We can start with the stoner doom project Dust Prophet, who released a new single titled “Hourglass”. That track is taken from their upcoming new album, One Last Look Upon The Sky, which will be out in the coming months.
Evil Shade have set the release date for their debut mini-album, Vandals. That will be out on February 25th through Chaos Records and Spookies Productions. Pre-order it, and check out the title-track, here.
We’ll wrap up with a visualizer for the 11-minute epic from Primalfrost, “Tenebrous Skies”. That’s the closing track from their new album, Lost Elegies, which is out now.
Brace yourselves, the tour postponements are coming.
Starting with Meshuggah, who have rescheduled their 2022 U.S. headlining tour. This wasn’t too bad, however, as the dates now fall in September and October. Already have a ticket for the original dates? That’s still valid, so have at it.
My Kingdom Music has also announced a new signing. Dreariness have joined the roster, as they prepare for the release of Before We Vanish. Their new album is slated for an April 15th release on CD/digital, with a vinyl offering scheduled a few months later.
And we’ll wrap up with the new video from Everlust for “Alone”. That’s a track taken from Diary of Existence, which is out through Wormholedeath worldwide.
I feel like I said this recently, but the everflowing stream of live shows and fests are excellent news. I mean, EXCELLENT. We’ve all missed them, and each other for that matter. Even if you’re the dude that loves to windmill dead in the middle of the crowded floor…you have been missed. Me? I won’t be in the middle of said floor, but will be holding up the bar in the back grinning from ear to ear to actually see this magical thing happen again. Anyway, I digress as we’re here for new metal and that we have tons of. Atmospheric black metal is something Svneatr dive into even deeper than before on their latest, Impaled Nazarene make sick music for sick folks and they continue their sick black metal pulverization of humanity this week, the band with the always stunning Conanish album covers and excellent heavy metal, Cirith Ungol, are once again upon us with a quick ripper of an EP, and Engraver offer up another quick ripper of an EP but this time thrash is the name of the game. Head below to find all the albums that will empty your wallet and go plan your upcoming events wisely. See you there.
Orange Goblin have had to reschedule their 25th anniversary tour as a result of the pandemic, but that won’t stop them from celebrating the occasion. As an alternative, they will be streaming two live shows, on December 18th and 19th in London. Get your tickets right here!
Been listening to A LOT of In Flames in recent days. Not gonna explain why just yet.
Chrome Waves, a project I caught onto after the release of A Grief Observed in 2018, just completed their second full-length. Where We Live will be out this coming September through Disorder Recordings. Here’s a teaser for those interested.
