If you don’t news it, you lose it.

I was getting worried I wouldn’t have a tour poster to share this week. Thanks for the save, Dragonforce.


Here’s new Paradise Lost song. Album out September 1.


Venom Inc released a song off their upcoming August 11 release.


Rings of Saturn released another track. (Read Spear’s review in last week’s Tech-Death Thursday)

I apologize for the lack of interesting goings-on this week. Did I miss anything?

  • Howard Dean

    Brussels: The East St. Louis (or South-side of Chicago) of Western Europe.

    • Joaquin Stick

      Parts of it are actually quite nice. Spent a few days there, would go back/10

      • Howard Dean

        I’ve never been, but I’ve heard mixed reviews. Most of the positives I’ve heard mentioned the city’s rich history as the main positive. But I’ve also heard from others that it’s pretty much devolved into a dump that should be skipped, and that there are far better cities in Western Europe to visit if you have limited time and resources.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Probably, it was just a short stopover between London and Paris for us, but I enjoyed it more than I expected.

        • It’s probably a lot like Baltimore. A beautiful, wonderful city during the day with a rich history/culture, but better to know where to avoid at night.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      Not a bad place, but not the best. While there last year it was crawling with armed military members

      • Howard Dean

        Crawling with armed military members? Ah, then maybe this is more appropriate:

        Brussels: The Aleppo c. 2016 or Sarajevo c. 1994 of Western Europe.

        • Señor Jefe El Rossover

          It was only a few months after the attack, kinda weird to see but i got a few candid pics haha

    • Brutalist_Receptacle

      Find a derogatory term for the Belgians:
      let’s not call them anything, let’s just ignore them
      couldn’t think of anything more derogatory than ‘Belgians
      the Sprouts
      the Phlegms
      but the winner was undoubtedly … Miserable Fat Belgian Bastards.

      • Count_Breznak

        Welllll…there are a lot of jokes about belgian potatoes and belgian children….

      • GoatForest

        Waffles? Maybe that should be more a term of endearment as everyone loves waffles.

  • AndySynn

    And the appeal of Once Human is…?

    Answers in the form of a limerick please.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      The appeal of once human is simple, they are made to sound like a pimple. Wait for the pop, the pus won’t stop, now put a drill to your temple

    • Joaquin Stick

      There once was an opener for Dragonforce
      They played quite poorly, of course
      No idea who they were
      As melodeath is one big blur
      And their fans have never had intercourse

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    I saw dragonforce once years ago. I believe the tour was Dragonforce, All that remains, and horse the band. The best part of the show was HtB ripping into bro audience members who were there to smash wimps

    • Depechemodeisgangsta

      That’s a weird lineup for a show, i saw once Horse the band, hands down the weirdest live show i have ever seen.

  • Lor premiered another track at some point: https://halloflor.bandcamp.com/

    • The final track of the album. Bold move, Lör!
      This sure is power metal-y. I am way excited for this rekkid. Oh, and you once asked which power metal bands I like, well they are Unleash the Archers and Sound of Thunder! And it seems like Lör now.

      • I love the people from ASOT so much <3

        when you're ready and want more, let me know! I think I can get a couple bands you might be into based on those two bands and Lor

  • Lone Biker of the Apocalypse

    “NE OBLIVISCARIS are looking for a bassist who:
    * Is capable of playing our existing repertoire at an extremely high standard
    * Is professional and hard working
    * Has pro quality gear
    *Is not prone to domestic violence or run-ins with the law
    * Is available to tour worldwide regularly- often up to 5-6 months of the year
    * Has great live stage presence
    * Has prior experience touring (*ideally)

    If that still sounds like you then we would love to have you audition to join NeO on the road starting late 2017.”

  • nbm02ss

    New Monolord from their upcoming album: https://monolord.bandcamp.com/track/rust

    • The Arm(KJM)

      YESSSSSSS

      • Say it…….

        • Howard Dean
        • The Arm(KJM)

          Mono = One
          Lord = Lord

          Thanks again for buying me ‘Empress Rising’, gets much play in the House Of Shake.

          • The House of Shake …. That’s got a ring to it! What is YOUR opinion of new Monolord?

          • The Arm(KJM)

            It’s decent, not as good as previous stuff so far, hope the rest of the new album is better.

          • GoatForest

            That song is really, really good.

  • drug_genosh

    I wonder if he’s still Pro-Pain? *snicker* (side note: how are they still a band?) (extra side note: pro-pain or propane? and accessories? i’ll take the clean burning alternative)
