Upcoming Albums

Upcoming Albums – January 13th

Here are Metal Utopia’s most anticipated albums of the week!

Jared is looking forward to Leiþa’s Reue, Obituary’s Dying Of Everything, and Ahab’s The Coral Tombs

Leiþa – Reue

Another project by Noise from Kanonenfieber, and this one is shaping up to be a major hit.

Obituary – Dying Of Everything

New Obituary, which means it’s time to unearth my lukewarm opinions about this band. Although I eventually grew to like their first two records, I’ve still yet to resonate with a modern Obituary release. Perhaps this is the one?

Ahab – The Coral Tombs

Ahab is one of those bands that I’ve heard everyone say is good but I’ve still yet to listen to them. Seeing as they’re dropping a new record, now is as good a time as any.

Nathan is looking forward to Obituary’s Dying Of Everything, Phal:Angst’s Whiteout, Turmion Kätilöt’s Omen X, and Kohnerah’s Ominous Ubiquitous.

Obituary – Dying Of Everything

It’s new Obituary, which means it’s old school death metal worth paying attention to. There were quite a few elder death metal bands with solid releases last year, and Obituary tries to start off this year the exact same way.

Phal:Angst – Whiteout

Phal:Angst is an interesting industral/post-rock group that really should have spent more time coming up with their band name. The style of depressing and heart-felt minimalist music on Whiteout, mostly centered around keyboards, creates a bleak feeling perfect for the dregs of winter.

Turmion Kätilöt – Omen X

Blood-pumping industrial music with big choruses and a strong pulse. Exciting music that wakes me up.

Kohnerah – Ominous Ubitquitus

Surprising, powerful death metal featuring heavy, frantic riffs and fun vocals.
