Here are Metal Utopia’s most anticipated albums of the week!
Jared is looking forward to In Aphelion’s Moribund:
A black metal side project featuring members of Necrophobic and Cryptosis; this record has been delayed for what seems like months, but it is finally due to release this Friday. Anything that sounds like Necrophobic is a win in my book, so I’m looking forward to hearing it.
Leon is looking forward to Arkaik’s Labyrinth of Hungry Ghosts, Konvent’s Call Down The Sun, and Besna’s Zverstvá:
Arkaik have always been firmly ‘decent’ for me, but who knows, maybe they put out a truly great record. Also I wonder whether the album title is a reference to pac-man.
An all-female death doom outfit whose 2020’s “Puritan Masochism” was pretty good. Here’s to another decent record.
Slovakian melodic black metal with some post-metal elements. The singles were good stuff, I’ll definitely check out the whole deal.
Nathan is looking forward to Messa’s Close:
Messa create fasciniating doom metal, and their new record features some pretty fantastic vocals. Excited to see what everyone’s thoughts are on this.
Rutger is looking forward to Ghost’s Impera:
Ghost are back with their fifth studio record. Up to now, their discography has been solid, so I’m looking forward to hearing the next album.
“The demo was better.”
