Sorry it took so long for this page to load. You’ll soon find out why.
For the last 10 days I’ve been bemoaning the fact that I haven’t had time to prepare round-ups of new metal with enough frequency to keep pace with the daily flood of music. It’s impossible to catch up, because every day other good new things appear. So, I’ve made a painful compromise with myself. As a way of (somewhat) clearing the slate, I’ve collected in this post many of the new songs and videos that I would have written about over the last 10 days if I’d had the time. But the only way I have time to do this is to strip out almost everything I normally do when we feature new music. All you’ll find below are embeds of the music, or in one case a link to a site where the song is exclusively streaming.
Almost everything collected here premiered over the last two weeks; in most cases, these are just individual songs, but in some cases complete EPs or albums. I like all of it. There’s so much of it that I don’t know whether this was worth doing; not many people will make the time to even sample everything that follows. But what’s done is done. I hope you find a few things that ring your bell. And if you think this was a terrible idea, please say so. Either way, I don’t plan to do this frequently.
If you want more information about the specific releases, in most cases you’ll find what you’re after by clicking on the links within the streams. If that option isn’t available, leave questions in the comments, and I’ll answer them. Here we go: music from A to Z (39 bands!):
God In Flames
Graves At Sea
Lake of Violet
Prisoner of War
