4 min read

Oh boy, another week is upon us, and of course there is no escaping our writers Julia Katrin and Tom Osman and their relentless Underground Updates!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

PYRA Last week Italian black/death metal band Pyra premiered the official music video for the track In a Thousand Different Voices via Immortal Frost Productions taken from their upcoming self-titled debut EP scheduled for a release on September 30th! Head over here to check out the video and then over here to place your order for the EP!

HEILUNG The long- awaited new album from Heilung titled Drift has finally been released which you can get over here, and what is more is that Heilung is currently bringing the power and majesty of their live performance to North American stages and we hear tickets are selling fast! Head over here to check out the dates and locations, and of course get a ticket if you find yourself somewhere close by!

REPOSE RECORDS Right now you should head over here and check out the Repose Records Bandcamp sale offering 50% off your order with the code sale at checkout! This includes vinyl, cassettes, CDs and digitals, and make sure you have quick hands because the sale ends tomorrow!

EVERLASTNING SPEW RECORDS Most things over at Everlasting Spew Records are now on 25% off due to their end of summer sale, although excluding recent releases, preorders and consignment stuff; nevertheless, you should head over here and check the many titles that do benefit of the sale and remember to do so before the week is over as the offer is only valid until September 4th!

CONSUMPTION Harking back to classic death metal and grindcore, Sweden’s Consumption have released their second album Necrotic Lust on Hammerheart Records. Featuring guest vocals from Jeff Walker of Carcass, fans of gory death metal may want to give this a listen. You can check out the album in full here and purchase a copy.

VOIDTHRONE Portland, Oregon’s Total Dissonance Worship label is true to its name. The latest release to be announced by the label, Metaphysical Degradation by Voidthrone, promises to be a powerful assault of dissonant modern black metal. There’s a preview track available to listen to here where you can also pre-order a copy of the album, which will be released on the 27th of October.

THE LOOM OF TIME Presenting themselves as a mix of Immortal, Mastodon and Cathedral, extreme metal group The Loom of Time have just announced their second album Grand False Karass, due to be released on Italy’s ATMF label on the 30th of September. There are a couple of blistering preview tracks available to listen to here, where you can also pre-order the album.

CHROME GHOST Melodic doom group Chrome Ghost follow up their great 2020 album The Diving Bell with House of Falling Ash, due for release on the 28th of October on Seeing Red Records. There’s a very cool, limited edition coloured vinyl version of the album available to pre-order, which you can do here, where you can also listen to a preview track from the new album.

Having to pay gigantic sums for international postage is a real gear grinder.

While it’s our default setting to link Bandcamp pages in the case of new and pre-releases, we thought it would be helpful to add some online stores that might provide a useful alternative.
