October was a strong month for metal. There were some great albums and some interesting news that came from the last thirty days. In our recap of the month, we have five fresh albums, two fresh tracks from independent metal bands, and some news for you to sink your teeth into. Listen to the episode for all the hottest October metal!
Primal Future: 2019 by Toxic Holocaust
Toxic Holocaust has been around since 1999. Primal Future: 2019 is a spectacular thrash album that hearkens back to the late 80s. Toxic Holocaust brings old school vibes in the instrumentation, vocals, and production.
Deserted by Gatecreeper
Gatecreeper has released an absolutely spectacular death metal album this month. Deserted is without a doubt an album of the year candidate. The album is packed with influences ranging from classic death metal, melodic death metal, and hardcore. Chase Mason joined us to talk about that album, so check it out!
The Sea of Tragic Beasts by Fit For an Autopsy
New Jersery based deathcore outfit, Fit for an Autopsy, released an absolutely slamming album titled The Sea of Tragic Beasts. It toes the line between death and core. The album is dynamic, introspective, and atmospheric ride. A great listen!
Macro by Jinjer
Jinjer is an interesting band. Based out of Ukraine, this band displays influences from all over the place. Macro is a little funk, a little death, a little hardcore, a little technical. Jinjer’s vocalist, Tatiana, has absolutely proven herself capable of hanging with some of the best vocalists in all of metal. She’ll sing you a lullaby one moment and scare the shit out of you the next.
Titan by Eye of the Enemy
Eye of the Enemy is a death metal band based out of Melbourne, Australia. Titan takes you on a ride. The heavy dose of melodic leads and dynamic vocal delivery keep you wanting more.
We’ve got two fresh-out-the-studio tracks for you this month. Killborn and Void Vator are friends of the podcast so check them out, follow them on social media, and buy that merch!
The first track you’ll hear is Genesis by Killborn.
The second track is Monster by Void Vator.
