Sh*t That Comes Out Today – January 27, 2023
Have you decided that 2023 isn’t your year yet? Drop out of life with new titles, as always available through our friends at Gimme Metal.
As in Gardens, As in Tombs (Season of Mist)
Finnish symphonic black metal horde …And Oceans return to action with their sixth full-length, As in Gardens, As in Tombs. It’s an intense and rousing listen that meets between suitably evil and fist-pumpingly energetic.
Den Tapte Krigen (Season of Mist)
In search of post-black metal that doesn’t sound like blackgaze? Look no further than Den Tapte Krigen, the second album from one-man project Biizarrekult. Den Tatpe Krigen has all the atmosphere, wintery atmospheres and melancholy—plus strong songwriting—to take you through the coldest days of winter. Available now.
One Day (Merge)
You don’t need me to tell you that Fucked Up have covered pretty much every rock-adjacent sound under the sun, from hardcore punk to weirdo punk to double-album rock operas. One Day is about as stripped back at Fucked Up have been in years—the whole thing was recorded by giving each member only 24-hours to record their parts; it’s an organic sounding record that does often go poppy, but One Day has enough heaviness and surprises to be another worthy addition to the Fucked Up canon. Grab it now.
New Miserable Experience
Philosophy on Pessimism (Translation Loss)
Yo, I hope you like black metal records and records made by metal-ish people that aren’t metal records because that’s the theme of this week. New Miserable Experience does not refer to the Gin Blossoms’ album featuring “Hey Jealousy” but instead to a new band featuring members of Rosetta, Lotus Thrones, Model Prisoner, Selfish Lover, Revocation, River Black and Publicist UK. New Miserable Experience play pop songs through the lens of metal musicians. It works out better than it has any right to. Own it.
The Extermination Vol. 4 (Flatspot)
The Extermination Vol. 4 is the latest in Flatspot’s compilation series and it features a bunch of the most kickass bands in hardcore today. Buggin, End It, Jivebomb, Spy and 7 others are featured on the compilation from one of the current best hardcore labels.
