If my count is correct, this is my 50th news roundup, so two away from my first birthday! I accept birthday presents in the form of Bandcamp gifts, but only things that a one-year-old might listen to.

Check out this sweet festival in the Netherlands.


Neurosis and Converge have a handful of dates coming up.


Mutoid Man have a new song out for their upcoming LP, due June 2. This is fun. Check out some tour dates here as well.


New Vallenfyre is here for your earholes.


Need some power/melo death? Unleash the Archers has a new video/song.


  • Devin Townsend said in an interview that he may be close to the end of the “Devin Townsend Project” style. Link to the full interview here.
  • Vintersorg is releasing a new album on June 30. It’s a double album (albeit disc 2 only having 4 songs) titled Till Fjälls, del II, a spiritual successor to the themes of his/their debut.
  • Ensiferum is making good progress on recording their next album. The drums & most of the bass have been recorded as a full band, to better preserve the live energy.
  • The Cavalera brothers continue their Return To Roots trek over Europe, and Max plans a Nailbomb tour for the nostalgia-hungry.
  • Max Harvey, lately of Gruesome, is getting back at it with gore veterans Exhumed!
  • Full of Hell debuted another song. Album out May 5.
  • Intronaut had to cancel most of their west coast tour, but the bright side is that they will use the time to hopefully have a new album out this year. Sucks for all those fans, but I’m not complaining.
  • Implore decided to cancel their US tour due to Trump issues. Just one of the of many to come, I’m sure.
  • Night Demon premiered a new video over at Loudwire.
  • Indian (doom) announced a new album is on the way.
  • Converge will begin recording a new album soon.
  • You probably heard that Sleep is back in the studio unless you’ve been… sleeping.
  • Joaquin Stick refuses to apologize for a terrible joke, riots ensue.
  • Golden Gods nominations are out. There are some decent bands in there, so go make sure a dude from Asking Alexandria doesn’t win the Dimebag “Shredder” award.

        • Sid Vicious Promos

          How did you know that id see this?

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      Alas, no Alex Newport

  • Howard Dean

    We’re starting a petition to get the sludge band Indian to change their name. In this day and age there is no excuse for such insensitivity. We are suggesting they change to “Native American A.D.” or “The Real First Nations.”

    Can we count on you to help us circulate it?

    • Guacamole Jim

      Unless they actually mean “Indian” as in “person from India”?

      • Hans Copronym

        Preposterous.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      And while we are at it, lets make Sleep change their name. It is really insensitive to people like me who suffer from insomnia

    • Doom Scientist

      Go after the motorcycle company too. ^_^

  • Señor Jefe El Rossover

    Noothgrush.

      Needs to stop putting hints of metalcore in their riffs.

        Always upvote Tom Green. He made fun of my hometown strip bar one time.

  • tigeraid

    Oh also: New Night Demon is good.

      BEGINNIGN OF STRAPPING YOUNG LAD 2??????
      A CAVEMAN & PROBABLY A DETECTIVE CAN HOPE!!!!!!!!!
      🙂 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Guacamole Jim

        I have this sneaking suspicion that when DT says he is at the end of DTP he doesn’t mean he’s going to return to awesome heavy music, but is probably going to write the exact same thing as DTP but without distorted guitars.

        • GL

          Fair point.

        • Dumpster Lung

          Probably more Casualties of Cool or something along those lines I bet.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        You can always hope, but Devy’s been pretty clear no heroin = no SYL

      • Hans Copronym

        Nope, only Devlab from now on.

    • Joaquin Stick

      I didn’t quite read it like that. Hopefully just a shift in sounds, which I am 100% cool with. I think Transcendence is a good capstone for that DTP sound. Ready for something new.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        From where I extracted the soundcloud link, he was quoted being rather clear that it would be the end of DTP and the sound.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Ah, i just read some out of context quotes then. Interesting.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Doesn’t mean he won’t still work with the same fellows. He’s done that always.

        • GL

          BUT THE SOUND IS SO GOOD. WHY

      • GL

        Transcendence is a great one. Listen to it once a week, min

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Fucking Loudwire is streaming the new Oranssi Pupuzu EP
    http://loudwire.com/oranssi-pazuzu-kevat-varimyrsky-exclusive-ep-stream/

    • Joaquin Stick

      I mentioned Loudwire for a thing above, and in the last moments of editing, caught that I accidentally said Limewire. That would have been a fun mistake.

      • Howard Dean

        …downloading track… 47 minutes remaining…

        • GL

          …downloading track… 47 days remaining

  • GL

    That Mutoid Man song is hot rocking. DAMN

    • GL

      I am ashamed I have never listen to them before. They be gooooooood

  • This new Vallenfyre is rocking my socks.

    Will have Vintersorg, Ensiferum and Night Demon under my radar too!

    Thanks, Palitos de San Joaquín.

    • Joaquin Stick

      Beargod gets many style points for giving me most of those hot tips.

  • Primordial Chaos

    The new song by Vallenfyre is devastating, short and full of intensity. I have something too:

  • Sid Vicious Promos

    Bitch is performing their first show in 30 years at Defenders Of The Old fest. Apparently that’s been the case since February. I might be going to the Saturday date with two of my friends.

  • Eliza
  • Hans Copronym

    Hoping for Mutoid Man dates in Euope (meaning one particular city in one particular European country, but trying to sound cosmopolitan or something).

  • Hans Copronym

    Also, please apologise already. I’m almost off work and can’t get home with all that lootin and shootin going on outside.

  • Sid Vicious Promos

    News i just learned: there are now two bands called Yes. Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman renamed their band with Trevor Rabin to Yes featuring those three. I sense something bad is coming.

    • Doom Scientist

      Maybe the Anderson/Wakeman version will get Geddy Lee to play bass.

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        They hired a bassist named Lee Pomeroy.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        THAT WOULD BE INSANE!!!

    • Jack Rabbit

      Which Yes would you prefer seeing? While Anderson is the voice of Yes and Wakeman is great, I kind of can’t imagine Yes without Howe

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        Its hard to decide. I might see the Steve Howe and Alan White version at Coney Island with some friends and the Anderson/Wakeman one in Newark with the same friends.

        • Doom Scientist

          Go with the Anderson/Wakeman version unless you have no problem spending the cash to see both.

      • Sir Ukkometso The Based

        Neither. Yes is dead.

        • Doom Scientist

          This. Chris Squire is irreplaceable. Anderson is losing his voice. Even Howe has to be feeling the age in his fingers by now.

          • Sir Ukkometso The Based

            Howe looks like a corpse and Squire is a corpse. Also no bae bruford.

          • Doom Scientist

            Alan White does okay for Yes. That wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me.
            However, that’s easy for me to say considering I’ve seen Bruford with Yes & King Crimson. Your mileage may vary.

          • Sir Ukkometso The Based

            I’ve not seen either live, unfortunately. I would be interested in seeing modern Crimson live but the fucks come over to nordic countries and skip Finland. It’s almos like we don’t exist…

  • RustyShackleford

    Mutoid Man>>>>>>

    Such fun jams. YEP!

    • Jack Rabbit

      I’ve kind of be putting of listening to them for a while, but they are surprisingly fun and lighthearted. I kind of love it

  • Jack Rabbit

    That Converge/Neurosis tour is probably the tour I’m most excited for this year (after the Gojira/Opeth/DTP which I can’t see). I’m hoping that this new Converge record will be good, considering it’s been five years.
    New Intronaut album is welcome, considering their last was one of their best.
    New Vallenfyre and Full of Hell are pretty good
    So pretty good Monday overall (oh, and that new Joey Badass album is amazing)

  • Waynecro

    VINTERSORG!!! EXHUMED!!! Bummer about Implore, though. I was hoping to catch the band live.
