The Week In Metal - Week Of May 20 - 26, 2019

Memorial Day weekend couldn't come in a better time. Last week was so prolific with quality releases that any extra free time to catch up with imposing and relentless heavy metal music industry is more than welcome. For those not in States I suggest taking a sick day, paid-time-off or simulate family's emergency to find the time for this new batch of blasphemy because whatever is stoking your fires there's enough fuel to burn the town or two.

Black metal maniacs can plunge into avant-garde Deathspell Omega, go through sludgy Kludde, thrashy Widower and round it all up with symphonic Stormlord and Kull or melodic Nihilisticon and Popioły.

On the bridge from black to death stands Esoctrilihum serving black acid to your death bed, Lvcifyre will drag you through the halls of hell and Nihility storms the scene with its blackened death debut. Symphonic death is back with new opus from revamped lineup of Fleshgod Apocalypse and Nocturnus AD returns with the follow up to almost 30 years old debut The Key.

And that's just the tip of the list! Thrash, progressive, heavy, doom, stoner and gothic are all well represented and worth your time with new thunderous albums from well known bands and scene newcomers. So without wasting any more of your free time...
