Here are Metal Utopia’s most anticipated albums of the week!
Leon is looking forward to Bossk’s Migration, and Heavy Temple’s Lupi Amoris:
The singles showed great promise (esp. the one with Johannes Persson) so get yourself some quality post-metal.
Heavy Temple have been active for a while yet only now releasing their debut. Some really compelling psychedelic stoner doom.
Rick is looking forward to Helloween’s Helloween:
Few albums could ever hope to generate as much anticipation as this one. An ambitious project, featuring not one, not even two but three singers, all three authors of a significant portion of the band’s illustrious history and all three equipped with great talent (and the ego that follows); also, one of said singers is literally the prodigal son returning home. The stakes couldn’t possibly be higher, especially after decades of uneven results. This album could be a huge failure or an enormous success, but from what I’ve heard I think it’s going to be the latter.
Rutger is looking forward to Archaeopteris’ Visions Chaotiques d’un Songe Halluciné:
French black metal trio Archaeopteris release their debut EP this Friday. The first of the two eight-minute dissonant black metal tracks already sounds intriguing, so I’m curious how the full EP will be.
Sean is looking forward to Eye of Purgatory’s The Lighthouse:
I’m not gonna act like I know anything about this band because I don’t. I came across the single , Fornever to Awaken, and what I found was some really cool death metal, albeit a little heavy on the synths, that walks a line between heavy and melodic that I luke quite a bit. Seeing as I have only heard the one single my enjoyment of the full album could go either way, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued.
“The demo was better.”
