Four day weekends are great for a lot of reasons, but the Monday after is a cruel retribution. Let the struggle begin while you catch up on some metal news and all the best Cyber Monday sales.
There’s still time for some Cyber Monday deals. Here are just a few, but many bands are having their own deals, so if you’ve been sleeping on an album, now’s the time to see if there’s a price drop:
- 25% off at Willowtip’s Bandcamp and web store using the code “turkey”
- 25% off at Profound Lore’s web store with code “PFL25”
- Lots of stuff on sale at the Cvlt Nation Bizarre
- 25% off most things at The Flenser using the code “BLACKPHILLIPFRIDAY” (though I am not sure if it works at both their Bandcamp and web store).
- 20% off Prosthetic Records stuff at their web store
- Cheap stuff at 20 Buck Spin.
- Here is a list of a few other sales.
Amon Amarth are headlining a European tour featuring Dark Tranquility and Omnium Gatherum starting in March.
This is a weird thing. A one day cruise in Stockholm will blast your face with metal on the open seas for 23 hours.

Bethlehem posted another song. Album out December 2.
- The Ocean should have a new album out in the fall.
- Brent Hinds broke his leg starting his motorcycle somehow, so the upcoming Giraffe Tongue Orchestra shows will be canceled.
- Cannabis Corpse are basically done with their next album.
- Torche seems to be done setting up their new lineup after the departure of their guitarist.
- One of my favorite post-hardcore groups, Eidola, started work on their third LP.
- NSBM affiliated group Graveland had a concert protested to cancellation in Montreal.
