Shit That Comes Out Today: September 14, 2018

The first week on my new job has been killer in case anyone was wondering. I know that nobody was, but still. We’ve got a rather diverse week on our hands from a good metalcore band, to an early 2000s throwback, all the way to a new fucking Deicide album. But if none of those catch your taste, there is plenty of shit dropping today, including some Blind Guardian vinyls if you don’t like change and listening to new music is scary. Otherwise, I’ve got another killer Kansas City metal release coming up for you guys soon so stay tuned and let this stuff keep you busy in the meantime.

Deicide
Overtures Of Blasphemy (Century Media)
On a playlist with Morbid Angel, Obituary and Vital Remains
Listen: “Seal The Tomb Below”

I’m pretty sure that practically everyone knows what to expect from Deicide at this point. Excessive Satanic themes? Check. Aggressive riffing? Check. Angry and irrational Glen Benton? Double check. It’s business as usual for Deicide as they once again return to fill our earholes with darkness and wipe their collective asses with any and all things religious. So check it out, sacrifice a goat and burn churches. You know the drill.

Abhorrence
Megalohydrothalassophobic (EP) (Svart)
On a playlist with Amon Amarth, Demilich and Ajattara
Listen: “Hyperobject Beneath the Waves”

At first guess, the word megalohydrothalassophobic has something to do with begin afraid of giant sea monsters. Upon a Google search — holy shit I was pretty much right. It’s the fear of giant objects in the water. Damn I’m cool. I guess the song title is just a fancy way of saying that. However, Abhorrence are a Finnish death metal band that formed in 1990 and barely lasted a year, putting out only a demo and a 13-minute EP. Does the name sound familiar? That’s because this was one of Amorphis frontman Tomi Koivusaari’s first bands. Megalohydrothalassophobic sounds like a more melancholy Amon Amarth and could plausibly be mistaken for the early work of Johan Hegg and crew at a glance. However, it’s definitely it’s own thing and so far this is a killer EP and I cant wait to hear the rest of it.

Fit For A King
Dark Skies (Solid Sate)
On a playlist with Miss May I, Silent Planet and Being As An Ocean
Listen: “The Price of Agony”

I legitimately never thought I would write these words, but this Christian metalcore band is pretty good. I know, I know. Just bear with me here. Fit For A King have an answer to pretty much every reason I hate metalcore. I hate metalcore because of the generic breakdowns and riffs. FFAK Have actual riffs and breakdowns that use more than two notes. I hate it because of the generic high clean singing. Ryan Kirby sings like a regular dude rather than a guy who just shut a car door on his balls. I hate it because of monotone screaming. Ryan Kirby has some inflection. I could go on but I only have a paragraph. No one likes metalcore and Jesus isn’t real, but god damnit if more metalcore bands did this stuff then maybe the subgenre wouldn’t suck so much.

Good Charlotte
Generation Rx (MDDN/BMG)
On a playlist with: Blink-182, Green Day and Simple Plan
Listen: “Shadowboxing”

I’m not exactly sure who was clamoring for a new Good Charlotte album I didn’t even know that they were still a band, but I’ve been feeling nostalgic as of late so I’ll allow it. I’d be lying if I said I listened to much of them other than 2002’s essential “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous”, but by god the new music is fucking catchy. No, it’s not metal but I really shouldn’t have to tell anyone that. Take off the serious listening ears ad just enjoy the throwback.

Cultural Warfare
Warmageddon (M-Theory Audio)
On a playlist with Blessed Curse, Extinction A.D. and Screw 32
Listen: “Warmageddon”

I’ll get this out of the way. Cultural Warfare are a good band and I do like the music. But I’m putting a fucking moratorium on thrash bands calling their shit “Warmageddon” because it’s a stupid word and it’s been used 4 billion times over. There’s this onethis onethis onethis onethis onethis onethis onethis onethis onethis onethis one and this one. And that’s just what I found in the first 30 seconds of searching. So, Cultural Warfare, you guys are good. But please, no more cheesy war stuff.
