Dream Theater – The Count of Tuscany

Just a casual 19 minute song by Dream Theater. This was recommended to me as epic so I thought I’d check it out. Those vocals though, ughh. Gawd. Interesting to hear this knowing they influenced BTBAM.

The Faceless – Black Star

New jam from The Faceless.

Does this mean Keene and crew are coming out with a new album soon*? Apparently yes, and it’s called In Becoming A Ghost, but I don’t think there’s a release date just yet.

Interesting clean vocals, different than Authotheism’s cleans. This sounds tighter too, than the last album.

*Soon meaning sometime in 2017-2018.

The Contortionist – Reimagined

New jam from The Contortionist.

Love this band. His vocals are so goddamned good it’s given me a man-crush.

Pre-ordered, vinyl shipping in September.

Rings of Saturn – New Song and Sick Art Time Lapse Video

Art by Trockz.

Pre-order vinyl ships in July.

Lorna Shore – The Coffin

Lorna Shore’s impressive February 2017 release, Flesh Coffin, pushing past breakdowns to create a symphonic, blackened deathcore sound.

Benighted – Forgive Me Father

Nasty album opener from Benighted’s February 2017 release, Necrobreed. Having formed in 1998, this French band is pushing an impressive 8 albums over 20 years.

Haunted Shores – Blast Inc

Fast instrumental jam, with surprise saxamaphone, from Haunted Shores, a duo consisting of Mark Holcomb and Misha Mansoor of Periphery fame.

Allegaeon – Gray Matter Mechanics

Super tasty tune from this Coloradan death metal quintet. I’ve had the classical part at the end stuck in my head for days.

Day of Suffering – full set reunion show 2012

Can’t believe I slept on this.

Gorod – Disavow Your God
