Get in here for the only news that will matter in the next few days. I can’t think of anything else that will happen that will make worldwide headlines.
Artificial Brain has a new album coming in Spring of 2017 and are going on a little tour with Cognitive.
Tech death band Beyond Creation are hitting up Mexico and South/Central America in February.
The 2017 UK Download Fest lineup is… uh… really weird so far.
Atmospheric sludge dudes Downfall of Gaia released a new video for their album coming out Friday.
Obsequiae released a new track [Editor’s Note: swoooon] on a benefit compilation for Doctors Without Borders. I have heard of maybe one other band on the compilation. I should check this out.
The Great Old Ones released a new track via Decibel. Head over there for more info.
Soen, the best Tool ripoff band ever, released some samples from their upcoming album, which sound less Tool-like.
Moon Tooth did an Audiotree recording of a couple of their songs that I particularly enjoy. The interviewer host guy is painful, though.
- Ash Borer released a new single from their upcoming album. Check out some atmospheric black metal here.
- Alkaloid signed with Season of Mist before their upcoming album, which will be out “late 2017”.
- Mastodon shared a little bit of studio footage. I hate that literally every metal outlet says that things like this are “teases” of a song on a new album. No. It’s some fucking studio footage where you can basically only hear a guitar solo. It tells you nothing about the album.
- Texas thrash band Power Trip plans to release an album in early 2017.
- The Strapping Young Lad album City is getting repressed via Blood Music.
- Yet another Animals as Leaders track (album out Friday).
- Yet another Superjoint track (also out Friday).
- Mutoid Man premiered four new songs live, watch them here.
- Invoking the Abstract shared a new video over at Decibel. Head over there for some instrumental tech metal.
- Allegaeon are having some money problems that could allegedly collapse the band. This was news early last week, but I figured maybe someone wanted to discuss it.
- I haven’t heard of too many of these bands, but check out the lineup for Maryland Doom Fest. I guess MD is the place to be if you like festivals.
