Here are Metal Utopia’s most anticipated albums of the week!
Leon is looking forward to Khthoniik Cerviiks’s Æequiizoiikum, and Tooms’ The Orb Offers Massive Signals:
It’s like Voivod if Voivod were born in the deepest, darkest abyss. Thrashy, dense death / black, with weird and twisted riffs for days with an occasional dash of ‘normalcy’ to keep you on edge.
Viscous punchy sludge with just enough style-hopping to keep it interesting without making it an incoherent mess. This is the Ireland boys’ debut and it shows that they have a future. Bonus points if you recognize the band name reference.
Rutger is looking forward to Conan/Deadsmoke’s Doom Sessions Vol. 1, and Eremit’s Desert of Ghouls:
Sludge/stoner bands Conan and Deadsmoke join forces to release a split LP this Friday. I’m really looking forward to hearing their fresh material.
Little over a year after their critically acclaimed debut, Carrier of Weight, the doom trio from Osnabrück, Germany release their follow-up: a two-track EP that ties the stories between their previous and their next full-lengths.
Sean is looking forward to Kommand’s Terrorscape:
Maggot Stomp has been the preeminent label in the realm of absolutely filthy death metal and Kommand have proven to be one of the best the label has to offer. I have been wearing the demos out for the past few years and cannot ficking wait for this debut full length.
