The Week In Metal - Week Of May 27 - Jun 2, 2019
First 3 and half weeks of May were full of great releases and even possible end of the year candidates, and last week couldn't be any different, could it? We're closing this month with over 30 new records, including albums from well-established, decades running bands like Darkthrone, Death Angel and Vader. Right behind them, longevity wise, come massive opuses from Krypts, Malum, Majesty Of Revival and Hornwood Fell. As always not to be outdone, newcomers make their presence felt with crushing debuts from A/Oratos, Towering, Tryglav or Kavara. If that was not enough, K.F.R made sure that you get full doze of ambient black metal in the form of 2 full-lengths to satisfy all your cravings.
And I only mentioned dozen bands out of 30+ spitting fire and blasphemy (well, maybe not Gloryhammer) releases worshiping ancient gods, war, zombies, misery and death. All competing for your undivided attention and last remaining change in your pocket.
In other words, if you don't find anything interesting, I'm going to assume there's something not quite right with your speakers' setup and/or your control center between your ears.
Till next week...
