Yet another Tuesday! The Underground Updates are of course ever present as it takes more than a giant long Easter weekend full of great food to take out our two writers Julia Katrin and Tom Osman!
So, let’s see what’s out there…
VOIDFALLEN Available now via Noble Demon is the official live music video Voidfallen Live at HMH Festival 2022! Head over here to check it out!
CHAT PILE The brand-new video to Chat Pile´s track Cut is available now, which is taken from the new split with Kansas City’s Nerver titled Brothers in Christ! Head over here to give it a listen!
AZAGHAL Last week Immortal Frost Productions premiered the new music video from Azaghal to the track Seitsemän Ihmisen Irvikuvaa taken from the band´s 12th full length album Alttarimme on Luista Tehty which was released this past February. Head over here to check out the video and of course over here to place your album order!
TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY RECORDS As of recently, Transcending Obscurity Records has placed their entire digital catalogue on Bandcamp for free download, just ahead of the first international Transcending Obscurity Fest that will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, on May 5th and 6th! Head over here to get familiar with the music of at least the 16 bands that will be performing at the fest, spread the word, and of course head over here for tickets!
BLACK LION RECORDS The spring sale goes on over at Black Lion Records, which offers 50% off with the code blacklion50! Head over here to check out the very cramped warehouse and help them out with some destocking!
I NHERUS Doooooooooom! You can expect a healthy dose of that on Beholden, the forthcoming album by Inherus, as the group blends a stew of black metal, doom and rock. With a dual vocal attack of Beth Gladding’s smooth approach and Anthony DiBlasi’s growls, you can listen to the album’s opening track here, where you can also pre-order a copy. Featuring members of Palace of Worms, Botanist and Swallow the Ocean, the album will be released on Hypnotic Dirge Records on May 26th. European customers can shop here.
POWER TRIP Southern Lord will be releasing Live in Seattle 05/28/2018 by the mighty metal force that is Power Trip on June 23rd. You’ll need to wait till May 5th to preorder a copy on vinyl or CD — digital copies feature a 12 page photo collection. In the meantime, head to bandcamp to whet your appetite with a few preview tracks and hear the band at their peak all guns blazing.
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.
So if you see a release you fancy, but it’s being sold in a far off land and you don’t want to fork out on exorbitant shipping, see if any of the links below can remedy the situation.
Direct Merch (Australia)
Napalm Records (Germany)
Throne Records (World)
Well, we do hope all of you out there had a fantastic long Easter weekend, however now of course it’s back to reality and work…but with all the fantastic offers and merch out there we can easily take on everyday life, right?
