Planning For Burial release ‘Quietly’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 8:52 PM (PST)

Pennsylvania doom metaller Thom Wasluck, after releasing 2010’s Leaving wrote and recorded a series of EPs that have become known as Quietly.

Flenser Records writes about Quietly, Thom Wasluck and Planning For Burial:

“It was a tumultuous time in Wasluck’s life, and the songs he composed reflect the intense feelings of longing and jealousy that he was experiencing. As the title suggests, these tracks are more restrained in approach than the work which preceded them. They are also set apart from much of Wasluck’s other output by their recording process, which was largely done live with few or no overdubs in order to properly capture every emotion in its rawest state.

For almost a decade, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania-based musician Thom Wasluck has been releasing his signature gloomy dirges under the name Planning for Burial at a nearly relentless pace. He now has three full-length albums (most notably 2017’s monumental Below the House) under his belt as well as countless EPs and splits. The Quietly sessions took place between 2011 and 2012 and will be available for the first time on vinyl from The Flenser. This new version includes a song that was previously only issued on a floppy disc as well as an unreleased track from the same era. This collection was remastered specifically for this vinyl release by Nicholas Wilbur (Mount Eerie) at The Unknown.”

This June 15th, theatrical hard rock hero Lizzy Borden will issue his first album in 11 god damn years, My Midnight Things, via Metal Blade Records. It will take very little time spent listening to the writhing hard rock melodic heavy glory of “My Midnight Things” to rest assured the band still mean business. This release will be super fun, I am betting. And we can sure use the attitude! Man, a lot of bands sure are dreary and lack any sense of adventure at the moment as far as persona  and rock n roll vibe goes.

“Although we have stayed busy touring all over the world, I missed being a recording artist. I look at the new album as a new beginning, I pushed the restart button on my career,” Borden comments.

The album can be pre-ordered via this link: metalblade.com/lizzyborden

Ministry’s ‘AmeriKKKant’ is in stores today.

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 4:02 PM (PST)

 

At long last, the day has arrived when Ministry‘s provocateur-in-chief Al Jourgensen – never one to shy away from making political statements – can share with the world the fruits of what started as what he thought was a bad, bad dream on November 9, 2016…the day the world woke up to find that Donald J. Trump had been elected President of the United States.  Ministry’s AmeriKKKant is in stores today.

 

 In this “release day video,” Al provides one last look at what we can expect from the new album.  According to Al, the album’s lead-off track “Twilight Zone,” harkens back to the chilling moment of realization:  “How did this happen??”  “Victims of a Clown” looks at us, American citizens, we who were about to be led by a man with no intellectual curiosity or emphathy.  “TV 5/4 Chan” looks at Trump’s followers who get wrapped up in their little soundbites for TV, put out their own “fake news,” and then crawl back into the hole they came from.  “We’re Tired of It,” “Antifa,” and “Wargasm” make up a trilogy that screams “We’re not snowflakes!  We’re not going to be led around by the nose, we’re going to stand up for ourselves!”  The next track, “Game Over,” illustrates the realization of the “new reality” of what happened, how we got caught in Trump’s BS.  “AmeriKKKant” closes the album with a look at the journey of what’s been going on, what brought us to the place where we, the American people, would vote for a man like Trump.

The new Ministry album "AmeriKKKant" is out now! Watch as Al runs down all the song topics on the album and make sure to pick up your copy in physical, digital and streaming formats at http://www.nuclearblast.com/ministry-amerikkkant

Napalm Death release “Oh So Pseudo” single

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 1:49 AM (PST)

British extreme metallers Napalm Death have released their first single, “Oh So Pseudo,” off of their upcoming compilation album Coded Smears and More Uncommon Slurs.

The album is due out March 30 via Century Media Records.

This is a compilation of “rarities and covers,” according to bassist Shane Embury:

“We are very thrilled to be finally releasing this compilation of rarities and covers from the past 10 years. Napalm Death is a band that gives 100% when writing a song, so the songs included on this comp were saved originally for split EP’s now sold out or vinyl editions of our albums or to become Japanese bonus tracks. When I was compiling the track-listing I was struck by how exciting again these tunes are to me. I had actually forgotten some of them, haha! We have written so many tracks and the years go by so quick that you forget just how fucking great these songs are! We will most certainly be blasting a few of these out live on our upcoming shows…Cheers and see you on the road!”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 9:17 PM (PST)

I’ve kind of tried to make extra effort since the start of the new year to keep up listening to the latest albums as they come out (I’m fortunate enough to have a Google Play Music account and I use it profusely).

Since I’ve listened to so many new albums this month, I thought I’d share with you my four favorites.

Mike Shinoda has released an EP titled Post Traumatic.

According to Billboard, Shinoda has this to say of the EP:

“The past six months have been a rollercoaster,” he explained. “Amidst the chaos, I’ve started to feel an intense gratitude — for your tributes and messages of support, for the career you have allowed me to have, and for the simple opportunity to create,” Shinoda said in a statement.

“Today, I’m sharing three songs I wrote and produced, with visuals that I filmed, painted and edited myself. At its core, grief is a personal, intimate experience. As such, this is not Linkin Park, nor is it Fort Minor — it’s just me. Art has always been the place I go when I need to sort through the complexity and confusion of the road ahead. I don’t know where this path goes, but I’m grateful I get to share it with you.”

This three-song EP is an intimate experience and wonderful art. We here at Metal Riot continue to wish Mike and all the members of Linkin Park and all of Chester’s family and friends the best.

Dimmu Borgir announce new album ‘Eonian’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 4:13 PM (PST)

Norwegian symphonic black metallers Dimmu Borgir are preparing to make a return with the release of their 9th studio album, Eonian.

From Dimmu Borgir’s Facebook page: “The songwriting core of DIMMU BORGIR furthermore consists of charismatic vocalist Shagrath, as well as the string wizards Silenoz and Galder, but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness: Drummer Daray and keyboarder Gerlioz are still part of the team, and Gaute Storaas helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the Schola Cantrum Choir. The cover artwork was designed in fascinating detail by Zbigniew M. Bielak (Ghost, Behemoth, Mayhem).”

The album has an expected release date of May 4. The first single, “Interdimensional Summit” will be released on February 23.

“Time, when not approaching it from the construct we’re used to can’t be defined and thus it is illusory”, explains axemaster Silenoz. “There’s only an ‘eternal now’, which the album title is already hinting at. When we travel between the worlds seen and unseen, the perception of time ceases to exist, it has no function. Our energy is our torch and our compass when we make rifts and pierce through the veil – when we go beyond.”

Vocalist Shagrath adds: “Eonian represents the illusion of time, everything that is and always has been. For us, it also marks the 25th anniversary of Dimmu Borgir and the album itself is a tribute to our own history and the Norwegian black metal history.”

Machine Head drop new song “Volatile”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 12:13 PM (PST)

Machine Head are preparing to unleash their newest album Catharsis on January 26 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment!

Ahead of that release they’ve dropped on more song, “Volatile.”

Every track off this album so far have been amazing. “Volatile,” for its part, is a political song to remind anyone who’s confused, about the original and long-lasting political bent of heavy metal – “Sick of the white folks privileged and vain // Protesting a culture that isn’t the same // Don’t blame the false elites // When Nazi assholes march the streets.”

You’re going to want to pick up a copy of this album.

In the mean time you can stream “Volatile” and check out tour dates for Machine Head here.

North Carolina progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me have come into 2018 with a slew of exciting news!

The band has announced a two-part concept album entitled Automata and part one is expected to be released on March 9 via Sumerian Records.

They will embark on a North American headlining tour with The Dear Hunter and Leprous on March 2.

Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. (Lead Vocals, Keyboards) states: “Every single week music comes and goes. We can get music instantly and with this luxury, the listener has a hard time sitting down with albums and exploring their every twist and turn. Because of this, we have decided to release our new album in two parts. Our music is dense and our albums are very long, so we want to give people two separate moments to dive in this year and explore new music that we’ve put our entire being into. We hope you enjoy the creation as much as we’ve enjoyed the process.”

Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Founder) states: “I first toured with BTBAM in early 2000s when they were on Lifeforce. Since then we remained friends and I have watched their career grow nonstop through eras on Victory and Metal Blade. I am very grateful such a seminal, influential and progressive group of musicians have chosen to partner with Sumerian for their next chapter. It’s days like this that remind me of my roots and excite me about our future.”

Check out more details, including the official tour poster and the tracklist for Automata here.
