Another Tuesday edition of The Monday Press. Come get your day-old newspaper and use it for covering your floor from dog piss like everyone else. 

With possibly the greatest tour poster I have ever seen, Alestorm, Nekrogoblikon, and Æther Realm announced a tour.

Following the release of their new EP in August, Skeletonwitch are touring North America, with Iron Reagan, Oathbreaker, Gatecreeper, and Homewrecker. It’s called The Curse of the Dead tour, but it should be called the Compound Word tour.

The awesome tour posters keep coming. The Dread Crew of Oddwood are doing a US tour in August/September. 365 wrote a mini-review of their last album.

Drudkh, Ukranian atmospheric black metal band, unveiled a new track off their upcoming split with Grift.


Solution .45, the band featuring the ex-Scar Symmetry vocalist Christian Älvestam, released a new track. It’s Melodeath.


  • Ne Obliviscaris is kicking ass using the crowdfunding site Patreon, collecting over $8,000 a month and offering some good rewards.
  • In political news, Brujeria announced a new album, their first in 16 years, which will be out September 16th. Head over here for tour info and interesting details about the album.
  • (I can’t decide on a subgenre)-band Downfall of Gaia have entered the studio to record their fourth full length. (Atmospheric Sludge maybe?)
  • Red Fang  has a teaser clip and a release date of October 14th, check it out here.
  • Insomnium is the latest band to cancel a gig because of potential assholes. This time it was a show in Turkey.
  • Auroch, dissonant Canadian death metal band, who just released a split in June, announced a new album coming in October. Look for more info on MUTE BOOKS soon.
  • Kalmah has started working on their 8th album. Lots of melodeath news this week.
  • In old people news, a drummer left a band, and I literally can’t care any more than this.

    That first poster = BlackBeard vs wayNecroGoblin vs @nordlingritesovkarhu:disqus.

    I’d love to see that Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper tour.

    Only had time to listen to the Drudkh split from last month a couple of times before I got the email announcing more material. They released a full length last year too, they ain’t mucking around these days.

    In contrast, Red Fang are taking their damn time with this one. They played 3 completed new tracks when I saw them in April 2015. You write no-frills riff-rock. Has there been a beer/weed shortage in Portland? I highly fucking doubt it. /impatient fan

    • Dubbbz

      I would prefer new Blood of Kingu material.

      • Abradolf Lincler

        nah, doc

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      President Waynecro wins. Flawless Victory.

    • Hans Müller

      3-way record swap right there! However that would work. Mexican Standoff Record Swap maybe.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    new Drudkh is good Drudkh

    • Joaquin Stick

      Man I was really digging it until i noticed the weird drum tone at like 7:40 to the end. It’s very distracting. It’s all I can hear now.

      • Abradolf Lincler

        sounds normal to me

        • Joaquin Stick

          Could just be my headphones. Or just that I fixate on weird aspects of songs all the time and then that’s all I can pay attention to. I ruin literally every song on the radio doing that, by like pointing out a random clap that sounds funny, and then everyone hates me.

          • Dubbbz

            If you think every song around you is a butthole, you’re probably the butthole. Or something.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            Check out some of his older materials drum sounds or the drum sounds from Blood of kingu

          • Joaquin Stick

            Listening to A Furrow.. now. I seem to not be having the same issues with this album. I like this a whole bunch. It’s probably a mix of shitty Youtube and my headphones.

          • Lacertilian

            Try Autumn Aurora next, it’s highly regarded.

  • Definitely going to that Skeletonwitch/Iron Reagan show. Mmmmm yes.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Even I don’t care about Chris Adler leaving Megadeth and I loved the new album.

    • Eliza

      I still haven’t listened to Megadeth’s latest in full. Not sure if I will.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        It’s very good. The Spotify version has a bonus cover of Melt The Ice Away by Budgie.

        • Eliza

          I listened to the singles that were released before the album, and I thought they were alright, but I didn’t feel that there was much passion behind them and that made them feel a little bit stale. I started the album, but never finished it for that same reason.

          • It’s extremely meh

          • Eliza

            It’s not like I expected something amazing either, not after the disaster that was Super Collider.

      • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

        It sucks, bad! Kiko and Dave’s shredding doesn’t mix at all (it sounds like Dave is trying to outplay him most of the time), Dave’s singing in what sounds like Autotune, and the overall theme comes off as right wing conservative nonsense.

        • Eliza

          Dave’s vocals have never been great, but they’ve become really bad in recent years. I wouldn’t be surprised if he used autotune.

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            His voice always had some grit before, but no how sounds like a metal version of Rihanna, lol.

          • Eliza

            Dave doesn’t go “uh” enough times to be the metal Rhianna, but he’s definitely lost the impact his voice had in Megadeth’s songs. It feels disposable nowadays.

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            He gave up the ‘uh’ after Tom Fischer took over. :-p

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Temporary Session Drummer Returns To Primary Band, Surprises No One

    • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

      He said he was temporary from the get go, so no surprise. I’m just waiting for Kiko to quit and get back to Angra.

      • Pentagram Sam

        I usually don’t wish for band members leaving but looking at how long Kiko has spent building Angra with Rafael…. shiiiiit man, Angra is your HOME DAWG!! But in all honesty, with the rate that Megadeth goes thru members maybe one more studio album and a live album is all that’s left before he heads back.

        It’s not like playing to big crowds is new, Angra was all over MTV in Brazil for years and are well respected in non shitty Power Metal circles.

        • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

          Yep! They’ve been my favorite band for 11 years now, so definitely hoping Kiko comes back. It’s not like Angra’s been struggling outside of the American market, and replacing him is nothing short of sacrilege.

  • Maik Beninton™

    There is something wrong with this post that ain’t right.

    • Eliza

      That being?

      • Maik Beninton™

        “Monday press”.
        I rushed here for TTT.

        • Eliza

          I thought it had something to do with a part of the article. XD I guess the posts that were meant to go up yesterday are going up today.

          • Joaquin Stick

            I thought the same so I was scanning frantically for errors. I did find a weird change from what I wrote… but there’s no way it was an accident on my part, so one of my wonderful editors must have made it?

          • Dubbbz

            What was the change? All I did was add a comma.

          • Joaquin Stick

            It says in “political” news, but I wrote “grindcore” lol. I just assumed I was wrong about the genre of Brujeria.

          • Dubbbz

            Lol, I didn’t do that, but it’s funny this way.

          • Eliza

            This makes a lot more sense.

          • Lacertilian

            To add to Dubz’s comment below and narrow things down even further, I too made a change, but it was not that one…

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            I guess this means we get 8 articles today so they catch up. :-p

          • Eliza

            That’d be fun just as an experiment.

        • Spear

          Good things come to those who wait. Or something.

          • Maik Beninton™

            I think is come for.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      That boy ain’t right.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        That boy needs therapy

      Monday 2: The Re-Mondaying!

      • Eliza

        That would be a terrifying horror movie. Mondays are the worst.

    • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

      For those of us in America who were drunk, had the day off and celebrated yesterday, it was like two Sundays in a row. I seriously kept thinking it was Sunday yesterday.

  • Dread Crew <3

  • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

    Fuck me old boots, when did Kalmah start going melodeath?!?

    • Abradolf Lincler

      quite some time ago. . . like when they started

      • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

        First album definitely wasn’t melodeath, at least to my ears. Nor was the second one.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Your ears are not working well, that has been proven countless times already

          • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

            Who says I listen with my ears?

    • ME GORAK!!!™

      U ONLY MISSED WHOLE CAREER!!!!! KALMAH ROCKS!!!!!
      https://youtu.be/dQX4tuY0qoE

      • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

        First two albums sounded like bouncy folky black metal to me. From there, I have no idea.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Since they started

      • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

        Nope, not to me. The first two CDs sounded like a more riffy Korpaklaani.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          U wrng

    • Hans Müller

      Do you want old boots to fuck you or are you a pirate who wants his old boots fucked? Just asking. I’m out either way.

      • Grandpa’s Magic Fleshlight

        It’s an old Scottish saying. No need to hit the bunk.

  • Guacamole Jim

    New Solution .45 doesn’t quite grab me in the same way old Solution .45 did.. but I’ll still probably buy it.

  • Hans Müller

    lol @ last bit. Who are any of those people.

  • KALMAAAAAAAAH!!!!

  • Waynecro

    SOLUTION .45!!!
