Sh*t That Comes Out Today – October 21, 2022
Michael Myers and Tony Soprano are both dead. How’s a girl gonna get in the Halloween spirit now?! Oh well, at least I have these albums. Buy ’em through Gimme Radio…
the classic symptoms of a broken spirit (Epitaph)
UK metalcore darlings Architects don’t believe in capitalization on their new album, the classic symptoms of a broken spirit. Following a similar path to fellow UK once-metalcore giants Bring Me the Horizon, Architects’ new album features a heavy emphasis on electronics, clean vocals and big choruses without ditching breakdowns and heaviness. Available now via Gimme Metal.
A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society (Nuclear Blast)
A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society is as fun and theatrical Avantasia album as there’s ever been. Frontman Tobias Sammet called in some heavy talent including NIghtwish singer Floor Jansen, Geoff Tate and more guests to add in some extra flavor. These power metal kings aren’t changing their core formula anytime soon but A Paranormal Evening is another great refinement on that style. Get your copy.
To the Dead (Relapse)
Gore metal is alive and well if Exhumed have anything to say about it. The grinding death metal veterans look to their roots bloody roots on To the Dead, bringing in former members to assist with the writing process and assembling a collection of songs that will please anyone into death metal, grindcore, blood or guts. Get it at Gimme and check out our review.
Ruby the Hatchet
Fear is a Cruel Master (Magnetic Eye)
Psych rockers Ruby the Hatchet will transport you to decades past on Fear is a Cruel Master, which comes four years after their last album. The songs inside are high-energy and spontaneous, centering trippy melodies and singer Jillian Taylor’s powerful voice. This is old school and we love it. Available via Gimme.
Perplex Cities (Serjical Strike)
The former System of a Down singer continues to experiment with electronic music on Perplex Cities. Other than the familiarity of Tankian‘s voice, Perplex Cities won’t do much for most System fans, but it’s a thoughtful and interesting record in its own right.
