Free songs for all!

Symfonia have released their debut album, ‘In Paradisum,‘ over on AOL.  I know what you guys are thinking:  Who the hell are Symfonia? Well, if you like power metal then this is a wet dream for you. This is a side project involving guys from Helloween, Sonata Arctica, Angra and Stratovarius.  The album has been released in Europe for a couple weeks now and is getting released today in North America.  Check out the album here.

Also over at AOL, Duff McKagan’s solo album, ‘The Taking,‘ is available for streaming.  You don’t care, do you?  Don’t worry, neither do I.  The album has been released today.  Click here if you want to listen.

Turn off your Job For A Cowboy or Black Dahlia Murder songs and check out a brand new Morbid Angel song from their upcoming album,  ‘Illud Divinum Insanus,‘ which hits stores June 7th.

And finally, if you are down with generic metal-core coupled with lousy clean vocals and pathetic growls, check out the new The Plot In You album. It’s called ‘First Born’ and it was released today.  Rise Records uploaded it and you can listen to it right here.


Morbid Angel reveal artwork

Morbid Angel, unfortunately not the name of a prostitute I’m sleeping with, but the Death Metal legends, have revealed the artwork for their new single and album.

Their new album, Illud Divinum Insanus will be released on June 7 in the US (June 6 internationally) via Season of Mist.

The artwork for said album, and their first single Nevermore, can be seen after the jump. I wouldn’t bother though, both look like they were drawn by my kid brother after he’s eaten a shit load of sweets.


Morbid Angel reveal album details

Death Metal titans, Morbid Angel, have revealed the title of their forthcoming album as Illud Divinum Insanus. Being the complete dummy I am, I have no idea what that means, but I’m going to guess it translates as “Dose of Metal is totally awesome and Mark has a ten inch penis that drives all the women wild.” Just a groundless guess mind…

According to Blabbermouth (guess where I stole found this news from?) Illud Divinum Insanus was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, ( in Florida, USA, not Russia silly) with engineer Erik Rutan (ex Morbid Angel guitarist, and producer for bands such as Cannibal Corpse and Goatwhore [he produced my favorite porn flick?]). The new CD will be the band’s first to be recorded without drummer Pedro “Pete” Sandoval, who last year underwent back surgery for a deteriorating disc problem. Currently replacing him on a temporary basis is Tim Yeung, who has previously played with Divine Heresy, All That Remains, and Nile, amongst other bands.


Dose of Death

Why the cheesy image? Because I don’t take myself seriously, and neither should you. Welcome to my weekly feature where I’m normally drunk and/or hungover, and write some garbage about music in a way that makes me sound more knowledgeable than I really am. Or maybe I just fail at that..

The topic for this week: Death Metal. Admittedly, not my favorite genre, but one that fascinates me all the same. Death Metal is an extreme sub-genre of Metal (no, really?) that began in America (particularly Florida) in the 1980s. But I’m not fucking Wikipedia and this isn’t no history lesson, I’m just here for the music, and so should you be, so get your Death dosage after the jump. Don’t worry, an overdose won’t lead to death. Only awesomeness.
