It's Friday! The weekend is so close, I can taste it. Then again, that could just be my lunch. Eww. Let's get to the music:
Cradle of Filth put out a new song today and…I don't hate it. That's a particularly snarky review of the song, but only because a lot of the band's recent output was pretty terrible. This is not terrible. The track is “For Your Vulgar Delectation” and it comes off the album The Manticore and Other Horrors, which is released October 30th via Nuclear Blast. Check it out:
Our buddies in Thy Will Be Done are streaming a new track off their EP, Temple over at AbsolutePunk. You can also check out a behind the scenes feature on the making of the EP here.
As I Lay Dying are offering a new snippet of their track "Overcome" off their upcoming release, Awakened, out Sept. 25th.
Speed it up, with a new track from Deceased.
Finally, let's slow it down a little. Turn down the lights. Fire up the candles. Let's listen to this gloomy 10 minute Yakuza track together on Stereogum.
