But what band and album? I couldn’t work it out.
Ah, misread you, sorry! It was (parts of) the Numenorean album that made me think of Stevenage’s largest flour consumers
New Full of Hell is out. Sounds a bit more death metal influenced and noise than before. Had a couple of listens and love it. expecting it to reveal a bit more with some more listens. Hopefully they’ll tour again soon as they were one of my gigs of the year in 2018

Spotify’s ‘Fans Also Like…’ thingy for Numenorean led me to Wormwitch, I don’t think they’ve been mentioned in here although I’m sure I saw them on someone’s LastFM collage in the other thread. They’re similar, black metal with acoustic bits and melodic choruses, their latest album is excellent.
Not so sure about their videos although its nice to see The Hound from Game Of Thrones on drums there
Possibly mine, I gave it a listen the other week. I need to revisit it actually.
I heard about it in a black metal facebook group that was started by a DiS user (@goatmeatmf ), not seen him post here for a long time, he used to do the odd black metal column on the main site a few years ago, this was one of the last ones;
The group also have a youtube channel which has some good lesser known releases. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyrY6Tk9f5WFsAlaqVXbWig
this is fucking great
Do miss @goatmeatmf. Never quite got into black metal but I enjoyed reading his posts about about it.

'68 are touring again
Just seen that Red Fang are releasing their new song via an app / game. You basically have to head bang with your phone and if you stop Red Fang dies! Matt Pike makes a cameo too
New record coming out 19th July. Yeeesssssss!
Really liking the new Martyrdöd album, exciting and brutal crust with some melodeath elements
This Hoth record is sounding great. New band for me. Thanks for sharing.
Any Solo projects likely?
That took me a second or two, very good!
Slam Dunk festival this weekend, I’m fully expecting to spend some time watching heavier bands on my own while my mates watch All Time Low and Simple Plan… Any tips from the lower ends of the bill worth checking out?
Turnstil are worth checking out. A bit like Helmet in places, Employed to serve are great
New Russian Circles track up on Bandcamp:
They’re touring in August too - have never seen them so picked up a ticket for London.
Check out Angel Dust, Turnstile, The Bronx, Touche Amore, Tiny Moving Parts, Milk Teeth, Press to Meco. Also, definitely see a bit of Lagwagon if you can, excellent live band.
I’m going to the Hatfield one. See you in the pit*
*Standing near the back drinking a pint shouting for first album material
You’re in for a treat - Arctangent will be my fifth time seeing them. They’ve been better every time… one of my favourite bands to see live. New album news has made my day and the track is sounding pretty solid on first impressions!
