I'm about a week away from heading to Austin, TX for South By Southwest and damn it, I WISH IT WAS HERE ALREADY! I'm ready to party, go to shows, and possibly twist my ankle again. Hey, it's the life we lead! Anyway, as I amp up for South By, here is some new music released today:
Jeff Loomis's new solo record is going to be amazing if this video sampler is any indication. His new album, Plains of Oblivion comes out April 3rd.
More new music from The Melvins coming off their free Scion AV Ep, which is released next week can be found at MetalSucks.
Speaking of MetalSucks, they also premiered an awesome cover of Cynic's "How Could I" by Obscura! Check it out.
Fans of Finnish death metal can sample three new tracks from Barren Earth over at Metal Underground.
Finally, we highly recommend you check out this new Aura Noir track.
