Within the last day or two, a number of new albums became available for streaming in full. Here are four that I think are worth checking out. In some cases I’ve been able to embed the streams here.

Doomriders, the Boston outfit fronted by Converge bassist Nate Newton, are releasing Grand Blood on October 15 via Deathwish Inc. It’s the follow-up to Darkness Comes Alive. Stream it at Pitchfork Advance here.
Finland’s MyGrain have a new album on the way named Planetary Breathing. It will become available in the US via iTunes and Amazon on September 30. You can stream it now at the Finnish Inferno web site here. (Thank you fireangel for the tip.)
