MB on Spotify - September summary
Greetings fellow metalheads!
The third quarter of the year is behind us and it's officially acceptable to start shopping for our favourite festivities - Halloween and Saturnalia. Obviously the celebrations need a proper soundtrack and here you can get some ideas, which soundtrack fits your mood and attitude.
September seemed to have more full-length releases, so there's plenty to choose from. Metalbite folks highlighted the following artists which are available on Spotify: Razor, Vermin Womb, Reincarnated, Cainan Dawn, Warforged, An Abstract Illusion, Dead Void, Cinis, Writhing, Acephalix, Acausal Intrusion, Cloud Rat, Umbilicus, Ensanguinate, Revocation, Bloodbath, Last Retch, Megadeth, Gaerea, Blind Guardian, Miscreance, Ares Kingdom, Tribal Gaze, Kill Division, Altars Ablaze, Fallujah, Epoch of Unlight, Wolfheart, Spiritus Mortis, Autopsy, Slaughterday and Mo'ynoq. This is already quite impressive list, I would add ACOD, Behemoth, Cosmophobe, Crust (doom/death/sludge from Russia), Defacing God, Nordjevel, Omophagia, Ozzy Osbourne, we can celebrate the return of Sceptic to the death metal scene, Science of Disorder, Slipknot, Strigoi, Tankard and Wayward Dawn to mention my favourites and biggest names. Plenty more, over 78 minutes of music, can be found here:
The list of EPs released in September is a bit smaller and the bands you can find on our playlist are: Act of Gorgon, Apocalyptica, The Band Repent, Chlamydiot, Dark Forest, Decembre Noir, Demonologist, Doedsvangr, Exsanguination, No Coffin, Nomadic Narwhal, Rage, Sabaton, Trauma Model, Vathr and Xenobiotic.
