Midnight Metal: Quick News Hits
I’m a huge fan of all things metal, so I figured, let’s put together a piece with some big news stories in metal this month. I focused on less mainstream bands here, by the way, with some of the biggies. Here are some quick news hits.
Kataklysm release a new album. Earlier this month, Canadian death metal outfit Kataklysm released a new album, Goliath, via Nuclear Blast Records. I’ve always liked these guys, and boy, do they put on a killer live show. Check out the new music video for the song “Dark Wings of Deception” below. Read on for more quick news hits.
Atreyu is back with another EP. The metalcore favorites released The Hope of a Spark EP is earlier this year, and now, they’ve just released another one, The Moment You Find Your Flame. Listen to Atreyu and a bunch of other metal acts on Midnight Metal below.
Metallica launch their M72 Tour. The guys of Metallica are back and on the road! Earlier this month, the metal band kicked off their highly-anticipated M72 World Tour on the East Coach. The tour features Metallica headlining two nights are arenas across America with totally different set. One night features Mammoth WVH and Pantera opening, while the other night has Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills opening. We have to wait until November for the show to hit Detroit. Darn it.
New music from Horrendous is here. If you’re into death metal, then be excited that Horrendous has released a new album. The guys just dropped Ontological Mysterium on Season of Mist. The album marks their highly-celebrated Anareta release. I’ve heard the new set and it’s incredible when it comes to the death metal genre.
Another new release: Ringworm with Seeing Through Fire on Nuclear Blast. Thrash metal giants Ringworm are back wtih a new album, Seeing Through Fire, and it’s a quick listen of some raging music. I can’t believe these guys are still around, but I’m grateful.
