Cruz Del Sur Music is pleased to announce the upcoming release of HAMMER KING’s second album King is Rising on November 11.
SwampCult is a two member black/doom metal group from The Netherlands mostly known in the underground for one thing: Their worship of writer H.P. Lovecraft and the mythos of the ancient ones. It didn’t take long after forming in 2013 for those in the know to become acquainted with their fascination thanks to a demo tape later that year, as well as the release of their limited run debut full-length An Idol Carved of Flesh in 2014 through Eastern Voice Production. Fast forward to 2016 and we’re approaching this holiday season with another bout of literary horror turned metal with their retelling of The Festival, yet another small-run recording through Transcending Obscurity Records. But is this the one to make the duo stand out among the many Lovecratian inspired acts, or is it better left at the shores of R’lyeh?
The following is a list of all Metal releases that are due out in the next seven days based on promos and press releases received.
Sweden’s Meshuggah is one of those groups that pretty much every fan of metal either has an opinion about, or at least knows the name of. From their technical groove and thrash metal roots to their extensive one song performances and recent aid in the cementing of the “djent” style, its hard to look past the group’s contributions since officially coming together in 1988 (not counting their earlier time as Calipash). With eight studio albums down, the five-piece present their latest offering titled The Violent Sleep of Reason which, at this point, is not being looked at too favorably from fans due to the promotional material that has been made available up to this point. But does this stand tall within the recent discography, or is it just something different?
New Jersey heavy metal act Midnite Hellion have been hinting at some special on their official Facebook page for a little while now, and today is the time that they “unleash the beast” by revealing the cover to their upcoming album.
When it comes to bizarro fiction, it seems as though Eraserhead Press has been attempting to corner the market from the underground up. The indie powerhouse of a publisher has a fascination with taking on new authors in the field and giving them a chance to get their feet in the door and start making a name for themselves. It’s a commendable approach that has brought us the short book Gigantic Death Worm, the first publihed work by author Vince Kramer (Death Machines of Death). Given his coloring book posts on Tumblr, as well as his photography line of action figures having sex, there’s no denying this is probably going to be a pretty twisted tale of giant worms hell bent on destruction senseless slaughter. But is it something you’ll want to read, or is this debut offering just a flop?
