Upcoming Albums – October, 30th

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

Leon is looking forward to Auðn’s Vökudraumsins fangi, Convulse’s Deathstar, and Draconian’s Under a Godless Veil:

Auðn – Vökudraumsins fangi

Icelanders doing some quite well crafted atmospheric black metal, with this being their third full-length. It’s nothing out of the ordinary for the genre, it’s just well made and feels good to listen to, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Convulse – Deathstar

Convulse hold cult status as one of the pioneers of the finnish death metal scene, with their ’91 debut “World Without God” still being held as a classic. Unfortunately, their later releases shifted more towards death’n’roll and groove metal which wasn’t met with much acclaim. Will something change with Deathstar?

Draconian – Under a Godless Veil

Ever tried giving crushing gothic death/doom a go? Already a fan? In any case, few do it better than Draconian. Active for almost 25 years now, this is their seventh full-length.

Rutger is looking forward to Master Boot Record’s C:\>DEFRAG, Make Them Die Slowly’s The Bodycount Continues, and Thou / Emma Ruth Rundle’s May Our Chambers Be Full:

Master Boot Record – C:\>DEFRAG

Though it’s all computer synthesized sounds, there’s definitely some metal influences in MBR’s music. This is the Italian one-man project’s ninth full-length in only four years. Highly recommended if you want to hear what it sounds like if computers took over industrial.

Make Them Die Slowly – The Bodycount Continues

This Halloween, you won’t just be enjoying a lot of horror movies, you can also listen to Make Them Die Slowly’s second full-length (just six months after their first one). It’s like a horror movie themed, polished Anaal Nathrakh; perfect for Halloween!

Thou / Emma Ruth Rundle – May Our Chambers Be Full

Thou follows up their collaboration with The Body with another collab full-length: this time with Emma Ruth Rundle. The singles have already revealed that it’s gonna be really interesting.
