Here are Metal Utopia’s most anticipated albums of the week!
Chaz is looking forward to Kauan’s Ice Fleet:
They’re a blackened post-rock outfit from Russia. It’s an atmospheric opus about a doomed geological expedition. And it comes with a 40-page tabletop RPG to live out the story. How could you not be curious?
Leon is looking forward to Phlebotomized’s Pain, Resistance, Suffering:
Known mostly for their weird avant-garde death metal output in the 90’s before breaking up in ’97, Phlebotomized returned a couple years ago still unwilling to compromise on their unique sound. This EP contains everything you’ll want from them.
Nathan is looking forward to Les Chants du Hasard’s Livre Troisième:
Orchestral music with black metal flavoring. This album is surprisingly intriguing and emotional.
Rick is looking forward to Blaze Bayley’s War Within Me:
Blaze Bayley is a name that probably every metalhead remembers… and not with love, probably; I doubt that his albums are anyone’s favourite Maiden records. Due to such precedents I wasn’t eager to listen to this album, yet I have seen more people than expected talking about it, so now I’m slighty more curious to check it out. We’ll see.
Sean is looking forward to Inoculation’s Celestial Putridity:
More death metal via one of the best labels putting it out, Maggot Stomp Records. Inoculation make crushing, riff heavy death metal with a cosmic twist. The band is super technical without sounding overproduced or robotic. If you like things like Blood Incantation or Demilich, then this is an album for you.
“The demo was better.”
