I’d normally be posting my list of October’s upcoming New Releases around this time so I thought I better announce that the New Releases posts will now be a weekly fixture instead of monthly.
New albums come out on a Friday in the UK now and that’ll be the day I’ll post on each week. So the first of the new-style posts will be up on October 7th. Hope you’ll join me then! The more frequent posts will hopefully mean I can go a bit wider and deeper with my coverage, including more underground releases, more non-metal stuff, more reissues, more vinyl and more releases that I think might interest you. Even if I think they’re mince. I’m hoping it’ll give me more room for chat and ranting too. Just more of everything. Cause more is more! I’m definitely with Yngwie on that.
In the meantime, here’s some stuff I received yesterday. I got the new limited edition of Saint Vitus’ Live Vol. 2 from the Season of Mist Webshop which, in addition to the main album, comes with a bonus digipak CD of Marbles in the Moshpit: a live recording from 1984 with original (and fantastic) vocalist Scott Reagers.
I also had a package arrive from UKEM Records. Containing the impressive new Winterfylleth album The Dark Hereafter and also the recent Tribulation EP Melancholia for a decent price too. And, as if that wasn’t enough goodness, the UKEM loyalty scheme meant I earned a free CD! So Cradle of Filth’s unreleased “Original Sin” version of the Dusk and Her Embrace album is now mine too. So looks like I’ve got a full weekend of proper metal ahead of me.
See you on Friday for my bang-up-to-date coverage of the latest new shit.
