Here are our most anticipated releases of the week!
Rick is looking forward to:
I thoroughly enjoyed Ghost’s previous album Impera, and more than that I have always been a fan of the EPs they like to release between album. Their covers are lessons in choosing the perfect song to play and adapting it so that it stays interesting, and I am eager to hear them try their hand at Iron Maiden. Bring it on, Tobias!
Last year I did an interview with Garry from Gonemage and I remained fascinated with his project. Imagine my joy in realizing a new album is coming! Retro 8-bit music with black metal harshness, this is a mix that yields unique and exquisite results.
I listened to their EP a few years ago I always remembered it because it was about Skyrim. So it’s safe to say, I just cannot wait for them to unleash their full potential with a whole album! And with a title worthy of Manowar, a great promise lies ahead. I am in need on epic power metal and this album might just be it.
Jared is looking forward to:
One of the greats of experimental deathgrind are releasing an EP this week, which is technically just their side of a split with another band, but still cool to see.
Sludge/doom boys out of Massachusetts hitting it big with their second full-length. If you like noisy, abrasive, and crushing sludge, this is the record for you.

The other Kanonenfieber side project, this one takes on a bleaker and more rhythmic character. Sounds like Mgła but without their weird Mikko Aspa connection.
A short and sweet record of Polish black metal.
Washed-out and atmospheric Icelandic black metal courtesy of Debemur Morti.
Noisy feedback-filled and crushingly slow sludge/doom out of Croatia.
