🌶️ To The Teeth: Misþyrming, Jesu, Insomnium, Venomous Concept, Heidevolk, Apocalyptica and a bit more!
🌶️ Misþyrming (black from Iceland. FFO: Svartidauði, Sinmara, Deathspell Omega, Dodecahedron)
I think Misþyrming's debut is one of the best black metal albums of the last two decades. The follow-up is different but amazing, too. And with new drummer Magnús Skúlason (from Svartidauði), and even though I haven't had the time to process it all thoroughly, they seem to have hit it out the park for the third time: I've never heard them this angry!
There's more: Dødsengel (black from Norway), a two-track ep from Jesu (drone/post/shoegaze from the UK), Hellish (blackened thrash from Chile), Kuolemanlaakso (death/doom from Finland), Arche (funeral doom from Finland) and a b-sides/covers collection in two parts from Rotting Christ (melodic black/gothic from Greece).
There are new songs out from: Insomnium (melodeath from Finland - feat. Sakis Tolis of Rotting Christ), Apocalyptica (sympho/heavy from Finland - feat. Simone Simons of Epica), ...And Oceans (🌶️ symphonic black from Finland), Venomous Concept (hardcore punk from the USA - w/ members of Brutal Truth, Napalm Death), Rotten Sound (grind from Finland), The Answer Lies in the Black Void (atmospheric doom from Hungary/The Netherlands - w/ members of Bong-Ra, Celestial Season, Thy Catafalque), Heidevolk (folk/viking from The Netherlands), Gatekeeper (epic heavy from Canada), Chevalier (heavy/speed from Finland), Omega Infinity (black/death from Germany/Australia - cool video!), E-An-Na (folk from Romania) and Sarcoptes (black from the USA).
Non-metal & next week
Non-metal album of the week: Little Simz (hiphop from the UK)
I’m looking forward to next week because of: well, it really is the end of the year, isn't it? I'm just hoping for a few cool singles, maybe a surprise release, but not much more. Plus next friday is my birthday (the big 40)! So if I manage to put out a newsletter, it'll probably my list.
Have a great weekend people - Peter
