Shit That Comes Out Today: October 13, 2017

  • Phil Boozeman

Oh boy, oh boy. Not only is it Friday the 13th, but it’s Friday the 13th in October! That’s some spooky shit right there. If you’re not watching horror movies tonight then you should probably re-evaluate your plans. That’s right, I know none of you have a social life. So you can be angry at me or you can just take the advice from your good pal Boozeman. Do whatever you want, I’m just here to help. But in unrelated news, it’s finally starting to get cold. At least in Missouri it is anyway. We all know that black metal bands come out of hibernation in the winter months so brace yourself for what is sure to be an increase in spiky and studded clothing, and check out all the new shit that comes out today.

E (Nuclear Blast)
On a playlist with Emperor, Satyricon and Darkthrone
Listen: “Storm Son”

My favorite thing about Enslaved is that most people I know who heard of them did so because “Frost” was on the metal video game classic Brütal Legend. MY other favorite thing is that it seems like everyone who liked Enslaved before that resents the newer fans for it. How dare a band have exposure. Black metal PR is whack, I tell ya. Anyway, Enslaved are back for their 14th full-length album and by this point they do their own brand of viking black metal so well that it’s almost redundant to write my opinion about it. But even the viking black metal label doesn’t really do these guys justice since E is so much more progressive than just being brutal. If it’s Enslaved, it’s fucking good. End of story. You can read Excretakano’s review here for a more in-depth review.

Death Revenge (Relapse)
On a playlist with Death, Carcass and Impaled
Listen: “Defenders of the Grave”

There isn’t a ton to say about the new stuff from Exhumed other than that you’re going to have a hard time finding anything bad about it. Death Revenge is a concept album about a story that “takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery.” Now if that doesn’t sound like something that excites you then you suck. This album is going to kill. Literally and figuratively.

Disomus (eOne Music/Good Fight Music)
On a playlist with The Red Chord, Ion Dissonance and Embrace the End
Listen: “Hate The Living”

Better late than never, right? Through The Eyes Of The Dead’s last album came out seven years ago and Disomus was first announced three years ago. But it looks like the wait was worth it because all three of the singles released off Disomus will rip your head off and shit down your neck, then take your boxers and wear them around all day without even wiping. This is shaping up to be one of the better metal releases of 2017 so do yourself a favor and blast this until your ears fall off. I’m serious, if you haven’t already stopped reading this, then get to it.

ancientvvisdomAncient VVisdom
33 (Magic Bullet)
On a playlist with Me and That Man, Ambassador Gun and Blood Ceremony
Listen: “Light of Lucifer”

Science fact: Bands that use two Vs in their name are 57% edgier than their W-using poser counterparts! But in all seriousness, Ancient VVisdom are a nice break from your regular grind of blood, guts and gore. Their songs start off slow and folky but then get progressively heavier as they go on, but not too heavy. Just the right amount.  If you find yourself bored of the regular agenda of death and destruction that metal has to offer, then give these guys a listen and you won’t be disappointed.

narcoticwastelandalbumNarcotic Wasteland
Delirium Tremens (Megaforce)
On a playlist with Nile, Suffocation and Origin
Listen: “Return to the Underground”

Look everyone! The dude from Nile wrote a song about Missouri! Narcotic Wasteland are the new project of ex-Nile guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade. The styles of both bands are unsurprisingly similar, although Narcotic Wasteland’s song titles aren’t the length of novels. Narcotic Wasteland should please any fan of Nile and brutal/technical death metal out there, but if you’ve never been a fan of that style of music, then I would probably pass on this one because as I’m sure you can imagine, this shit is not for the faint of heart.
