BIG RELEASE TUESDAY; GOD FORBID DVD + NACHTMYSTIUM ALBUM
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Tuesday worth talking about, but today is a big day indeed for those who still buy records. Our album pick of the week is Nachtmystium’s excellent, psych-addled, black metal experiment Assassins: Black Meddle Part 1, which hits the shelves amongst much hullabaloo. Even if you don’t buy records you’ve still got to buy DVDs, and God Forbid are dropping a fucking doozy today; Beneath the Scars of Glory and Progression, which has been in the works for well over a year, finally hits stores. The DVD features a live performance filmed at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey (Axl and I were there) as well as a telling behind-the-scenes documentary by Denise Korycki. Buy it ’cause Dallas said so. And though we haven’t seen it yet, we’re 99.9% sure it’s incredible.
