This week's new heavy metal releases include spacy tech death, some mighty returns after long waits, something something what Corey Taylor thinks joke, and more! To the metals Alkaloid – Numen Genre: Progressive death metal Origin: Erlangen, Bavaria, Germany Label: Season Of Mist Advertisement.
Scroll to continue reading. Buy now on Bandcamp It's been half a decade since this outfit brought the prog, and in those five years the weirdness of the world around us has seeped into their music. Straight-ahead death metal has never really been these guys' bag, but the soundscapes that accompany the heavy here are other worldly.
Still lots and lots of shredding. They haven't gone full Pink Floyd "Echoes" or anything. Baroness – Stone Genre: Progressive/sludge metal Origin: Savannah, Georgia Label: Abraxan Hymns Buy now on Bandcamp Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading. Did you dig Gold & Grey? If you said no, you're wrong, but if you said yes then you'll enjoy Stone as well.
This is not the same album, but this feels like the logical next step. Jeff has a full review here and you can find the bossman's cha with Joh Baizley here. Brujeria – Esto Es Brujeria Genre: Death/extreme metal Origin: Los Angeles, California Label: Nuclear Blast Buy now on Amazon One of metal's most infamous is back with their first album in seven years.
Esto Es Brujeria is frantic death metal sans bullshit from front to back. The press photos show six people while the press releases list nine, but you can at least tell you're getting Shane Embury (Napalm Death), Jeff Walker (Carcass) and Jessica Pimentel among others this time.

Gridlink – Coronet Juniper Genre: Melodic grindcore Origin: Hoboken, New Jersey Label: Willowtip Records Buy now on Bandcamp Like everyone so far, it's been a minute since there has been some new GridLink.
The new album is their first since reuniting and is nineteen minutes of technical, grinding chaos that retains enough melody to be catchy. Looks like you can also get what they're calling the "karaoke" versions of the songs to really bring down the house next time there's karaoke at the local pub too. Corey Taylor – CMF2 Genre: Hard rock Origin: Des Moines, Iowa Label: Decibel Cooper Advertisement.
Scroll to continue reading. Buy now on Amazon Corey Taylor's hard rocking side, side project is back with more Guns N Roses-ish rock. There's the right amount of a bluesy through -ine to get the heads of those skeptical dads out bobbing their heads. Ironically the track "Post Traumatic Blues" could have been a Slipknot song, so he'll keep you guessing. TesseracT – War Of Being Genre: Progressive metal Origin: Milton Keynes, England Label: Kscope Buy now on Bandcamp Advertisement.
Scroll to continue reading. The latest from these Brits really has this fan of the first record coming back over and over. This has all the TesseracT trademarks of slapping bass, djenty grooves, epic passages, but it really just hits in a way the last couple didn't quite. Daniel Tompkins is once again showing that he is an underrated voice in heavy stuff here. Tomb Mold – The Enduring Spirit Genre: Death metal Origin: Toronto, Ontario Label: 20 Buck Spin Buy now on Bandcamp Wrapping this week with something that will get you modern death metal fans all hot and bothered.
This surprise-ish record includes seven new tracks that were recorded with returning pal Sean Pearson. Is it obvious that as of this writing (hi from the past!), I haven't heard a second of this? Anyway, if you wanna hold it, you have to wait until October, but you can hear it all now. Advertisement.
