It might be Friday the 13th but it’s far from an unlucky day for those hungry for new music. Today is another stacked day for releases.
Leading the way is Danish “blackgaze” favourites MØL and their incredible debut album – ‘JORD’. While Polish extreme metallers Behemoth deliver ‘Messe Noire’, a live CD/DVD which includes two performances of ‘The Satanist’ in full from front to back.
There are also releases from feminist punk band War on Women (‘Capture The Flag’), rising UK hardcore hopefuls Rough Hands (‘Moral Terror’), Leicester queer indie-punks Kermes (‘We Choose Pretty Names’), and Birmingham math/hardcore/punk band To The Wall release their self-titled debut EP.
While the uncompromising Queen Kwong returns with ‘Love Me To Death’, and Boston’s Animal Flag show their intimate and expansive side with ‘Void Ripper’.
If that wasn’t enough to fill your needs, there is music from the much talked about nothing,nowhere., as well as Reigning Days, Fiddlehead, Pretty Pistol, Settle Your Scores, The Damned, His & Hers and more.
