Upcoming Albums 11/17/23

Here are our most anticipated releases of the week!

Rick is looking forward to:

Goaten – Midnight Conjuring

These guys from Brazil are the author of an incredibly good EP from 2021, Crimson Moonlight; it’s your bread-and-butter NWOTHM but you can easily tell how much passionate they are about it. Now they are about to release their first proper album and I really can’t wait.

Aeon Winds – Night Sky Illumination

I was drawn to this album because of its title… and I stayed because of the symphonic black metal. I rarely enjoy black metal but when I do I adore it. The music from this album sounds like a cold yet immense embrace, like the fog at the bottom of a cliff or on the top of a mountain. The perfect companion for this time of the year.

Nathan is looking forward to:

Foetal Juice – Grotesque

Gross caveman death metal, sounds exactly what it says on the tin.

Ceremonial Bloodbath – Genesis of Malignant Entropy

Sentient Ruin Laboratories has had some good releases this year, and this is shaping up to be another one. Straight and to the point bestial death metal that sounds uncompromising and aggressive.

Temic – Terror Management Theory

If you like Devin Townsend and Neal Morse, you’ll like Temic. This one will need more time to marinate, but it deserves that time.

Kilter – The Suspended Woman

Kilter, now featuring vocals. In a better world I’d be giving this a full review, but this will have to do. This is apparently an EP prelude to a larger opera, featuring “stripped-down” versions of larger songs that will come out hopefully next year. I will keep sticking with Kilter out of potential and intrigue, and this release hits better than their previous releases to me.
