Sh*t That Comes Out Today – November 11, 2022
Friday is here again and the only thing I feel is an uncomfortable sense of dread about global warming. Oh well – time for the new releases. Buy them at Gimme Metal.
The Black Dahlia Murder
Yule ‘Em All (Metal Blade)
Originally from 2020, Yule ‘Em All is a holiday extravaganza from everyone’s favorite death metal band. The Black Dahlia Murder‘s last recording with late frontman Trevor Strnad, Yule ‘Em All is a celebration of what makes the band so great. It even features guest host Neil Hamburger. Makes a great Christmas gift.
The Alchemy Project (Nuclear Blast)
The symphonic metal stalwarts’ new EP—their fourth since releasing full-length Omega last year—is a star-studded affair, featuring collaborations with Myrkur, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Insomnium, Soilwork and more. No idea how Epica keep this pace up, but it’s working for them. Available via Gimme.
He is Legend
Endless Hallway (Spinefarm)
Metalcore mainstays He is Legend continue to develop and evolve their sound and energy on seventh album Endless Hallway. Mixing up a variety of new and familiar sounds, Endless Hallway is proof positive that a band can continue to grow at this phase of their career and make it work. You know where to buy it.
Past Lives (Fantasy)
Members of Circa Survive/Saosin, My Chemical Romance, Coheed and Cambria and Thursday make a ruling post-hardcore record. Past Lives hits with a ton of intensity that the members’ other bands don’t necessarily hit with and hits the emotional core that the members’ other bands definitely hit. Embrace your inner emo.
V is for Versatile and Parole Violator
Livestreams from early Puscifer records, featuring Maynard James Keenan. These are definitely not essential releases, but if you’re a diehard fan of the band, it’s pretty cool to hear these early Puscifer songs performed in the modern day.
