The news I have been awaiting quite awhile arrived today, and that’s awesome.
Referring, of course, to Der Weg einer Freiheit. Their fifth album will drop on November 19th, through Season of Mist, and it will be titled Noktvrn. Here’s an album trailer for now, but it sounds like the German black metallers will be sharing a new track and pre-order details in the near future.
And then we’ll jump over to the Grand Tetons and see what updates have emerged from Fire In The Mountains. Ivar Bjørnson has announced a batch of reconfirmations for the 2022 festival, including the likes of Yob and Wayfarer, among others. Ohhhhh how I cannot wait.
Experimental black metal project Le Chant Noir has named October 22nd as the international release date of La Société Satanique des Poètes Morts, their second album. That will be released through Personal Records, and you can stream “Priére á Satan”, the first single, right here.
Closing with the new Obscura track that dropped yesterday should make some people happy. This is the video for “A Valediction”, the title-track from their new album set for a November 19th release through Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders!
This week get you down? Too much monkey business? All of the above? It’s Saturday. Finally. Put the week in your rearview and focus on our Saturday morning mixtape of things we’ve been cranking this week. We’ve got a Slay At Home performance from The Lion’s Daughter, some Opeth, YOB, Schammasch, Hammer King, Beggar, Cloud Rat, Craven Idol, and several more from all over the music spectrum. So, let the rough side drag and jam with us.
It’s Saturday afternoon here on the east coast and before too long it’ll be an actual weekend for me. Hope the same for you. And, to go along with that, we’ve got another playlist tailor made for weekend vibes; I’ve got new stuff from Timo Ellis and Portal of Pazuzu, Chris has some King Gizzard and Transylvania Stud, Vince brings The Ruins of Beverast, Ian drops Astronoid and Loathe, and Angela showcases YOB and Ahab. Stacked playlist to be sure, but there’s way more included so jump in and enjoy….
Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist. We’ve got a house full of new picks from Judicator, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer, and much more. There’s bound to be something you’ll like in there, stop what are you waiting for?
The next tour comes from Yob, who not only announced some west coast and European dates in March and May, but also an appearance at Fire In The Mountains. Man, really wish I could go this year. Maybe 2021.
Lastly, because this seems like a fun thing for a Friday, here is a new video from Macabre for “The Ted Bundy Song”. For those that may not remember, that was a track from 1993’s Sinister Slaughter. Their entire discography is now available digitally, which is why they are celebrating with this throwback. Fun!
