Memumiom has a new cd coming out in March 23rd

It would be really helpful if you'd include links or a bit more info, and maybe tell us what you like about the band, why you're looking forward to the album, etc. I like having an ongoing thread to talk about new releases, but this runs the risk of becoming another "list thread". Also please try your best to be careful with spelling so people can look up what you're talking about.

Just saw on FB that Jon Shaffer confirms Demons & Wizards is working on new material and they're hoping for a 2018 release. I'm cautiously optimistic.
Interesting. I don't know that I'm optimistic based on the newer Iced Earth and Blind Guardian that I've heard, but I would be happily surprised if it was good.

I haven't listened to any of their recent stuff, but Jon and Hansi seem to bring out the best in one another IMO. I wouldn't be too surprised if the album was a lame retread, but here's hoping they find some real inspiration.

They were the band that based some of their songs on Stephen King's The Dark Tower right?

Voidthrone will be releasing a full-length, "Kur", on May 4th. 2016's "Spiritual War Tactics" EP was a grab bag of dissonant blackened death and trudging gloom, promising if a bit haphazard. You can name your price for a digital version of the EP here:

New Marduk out June 22nd - apparently titled Viktoria.

 

Now this will be interesting after album of their career ‘Frontschwein’. 

I’m excited and worried in equal measure.

New Abyssal/Carcinoma split just went up on Bandcamp. A murky, brooding, cavernous double-scoop black/death sundae.

https://abyssal-home.bandcamp.com/album/apanthropinization

 

Will check this out although I really did not get on with Abyssal’s last full length as they tried to get a bit experimental to my mind it really didn’t work.

Was Frontschwein that good? I doubt it would ever eclipse Those of the Unlight for me, but some of their more recent albums like Plague Angel have proven to be pretty enjoyable.

Yeah, I felt the same about "Antikatastaseis", seemed like it tried too hard to be "unconventional" and "challenging" without actually being good. I've only heard one of the Abyssal tracks off of this split, so I'll reserve comment till I've given it all a chance.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
