Hey everyone! I’ve been celebrating the Black Capricorn Moon since yesterday and I feel incredibly pumped! I need something crazy this Monday to start my week off. Hopefully your hangover can handle this playlist — or make you want to run out and get another one. Either way… LET’S FUCKIN GO!
ISATAII — “A SPIRIT’S DEATH”
Say “HELL-o” to this two-piece, pure black metal band based out of Los Angeles, CA (ohhh maybe I should meet them?)! Dark music; hissing voices — gotta love it! ISATAII has newly released this song called “A Spirit’s Death” and it’s everything a classic black metal lover could want. The band hasn’t been around that long (2021), but ISATAII has had a steady stream of music since then. This is a badass California black metal band that you don’t want to miss out on! Listen to their newest song “A Spirit’s Death” below and be sure to check out the official Bandcamp page!
IN GLOOM — ‘DEATHBELL’
Seriously loving this EP ‘Deathbell’ by IN GLOOM — 13 minutes of relentless, melodic violence. IN GLOOM is a deathcore band from Florida who’s been in the game since 2020 letting loose these crazy amazing songs on the low. This being their second EP (first one was their self-titled album in 2020), it brings more ferocity to their metal resume. ‘Deathbell’ gives you mere moments — if that — to catch your breath before it breaks you down all over again. Highly recommend for my slamheads out there! Check out their new EP ‘Deathbell’ below and hit up their merch store for some killer gear!
DEADVECTORS — ‘COLOSSAL’
From Satan’s lips to my sweet, tiny baby ears… A FUCKIN BANGER!!! A screamer, a banger, a rager… I don’t know — it just slams like a motherfucker! DEADVECTORS has come through with one HELL of an EP that’s as epic as the name — ‘Colossal’. It’s giving me slamming black metal vibes in some parts but it’s actually called “insanity core”. You can purchase this album via Apple but not on their official Bandcamp page (yet?). I suggest headphones to get the full effect of this EP (unless you don’t mind the cops coming). Check out DEADVECTORS‘ new album ‘Colossal’ below!
TALIESIN VALO “WHEN WE ARE DUST” FT. GORILLA KWIK
Another fairly new band with all the potential in the world! TALIESIN VALO is a metalcore band from California who’s collaborated with a rap artist known as GORILLA KWIK to bring us poor souls this refreshing metalcore song called “When We Are Dust”. Complete with a music video (you know how I love those), this song gives me life — REALLY makes me want to see them play live soon! Bending riffs and flipping from semi-clean vocals, to DIRTY vocals and switching up to a rap lyric and back again kept me on my toes when listening this to the first time. And of course, this song is only the tip of the iceberg seeing as this is from a “chapter 4” album that has yet to be released. There’s more that TALIESIN VALO has to offer and I can’t wait to hear it! Check out the music video for “When We Are Dust” below and head over to their Bandcamp for other chapters to this gruesome tale!
WARHEAD52 — “THE LAST STRAW”
This song was MADE for the pit. WARHEAD52 has come through with a slamtastic song called “The Last Straw” — definitely the vibe. From Nizhny Novgorod, Russia WARHEAD52 goes straight for the kill right at the start. Brutal beatdown music really brings the fire to the moshpits and I could only imagine (hopefully not for long) how it would play out if they came to play here in person. I’ve yet to see them live but I’m pretty sure someone’s leaving with a few less teeth than they started with. “The Last Straw” is just raw action from start to finish and is not for the faint of heart, so I put it on here for you to play on repeat (muahaha!). Check this official music video below and be sure to hit up their official Bandcamp page!
