Beginning at 12:00am EST November 27th, eOne Heavy will hold its annual Black Friday Build-Your-Own-Bundle sale featuring discounts and free shipping (excluding preorders) on music and merch from across the label's vast roster including some of 2020's most innovative artists including:
PLAGUE YEARS - Circle Of Darkness: Like an icepick to the face, PLAGUE YEARS arrives with an electric surge of sudden pain on their Circle Of Darkness debut. Mining the subterranean depths once unearthed on classic Sepultura albums like Beneath The Remains and Arise, with the vicious bite of Germanic slabs like In The Sign Of Evil by Sodom and the Hall Of Fame '80s output of Slayer, the devilish and down-tuned death worship within PLAGUE YEARS serves as a demonic calling card for the foursome; a brutal counterbalance to their otherwise likeminded thrash revivalists. On Circle Of Darkness, the band reunites with engineer Arthur Rizk, whose work with Power Trip, Tomb Mold, Candy, and Cavalera Conspiracy has propelled him to the front of the horde amidst the resurgence of crossover thrash.
SODOM - Genesis XIX: Out Friday, November 27th, Genesis XIX stands among the German thrash metal legends' most pulverizing releases to date. Hails Decibel Magazine, "From the brutalizing leadff track 'Sodom & Gomorrah' through the blast/groove of 'Nicht Mehr Mein Land' and the Repulsion-esque/thrash treatment of closer 'Friendly Fire,' Genesis XIX never relents..." This inventiveness also applies to the album's lyrics with vocalist/bassist Tom Angelripper presenting, as usual, his very own range of subjects: "The Harpooneer" is based on Melville's Moby Dick novel featuring the obsessive Captain Ahab, "Glock N' Roll" is the story of a serial killer, "Waldo & Pigpen" is an homage to the same-named US fighter pilots, whose radio traffic during their mission in Vietnam has survived, and "Nicht Mehr Mein Land" describes the condition of western society.
WITHIN THE RUINS - Black Heart: Progressive deathcore legion WITHIN THE RUINS unleashes their Black Heart full-length Friday, November 27th. Vicious, unrelenting, and hyper-focused, the record thrusts forth ten tracks of sheer terror with an unforgiving mandate to destroy. Born and bred in the same heavy metal fertile Northeast soil as New Wave Of American Heavy Metal progenitors Killswitch Engage and All That Remains, WITHIN THE RUINS charted their own course in the genre, offering a unique take on familiar ingredients: the dark sounds of classic death metal, the technical melodicism of Scandinavia, and the precision staccato crunch of Meshuggah. In contrast to much of the genre, they maintain an emphasis on the songs over the shred. Showmanship and diversity coexist, smartly sidestepping contrived or predictable sonic choices.
KIRK WINDSTEIN - Dream In Motion: He's a man Pitchfork calls "a pioneer" with a voice recognized by Rolling Stone as "the sound of resilience." Now, Kirk Windstein, wielder of the sludge sledgehammer and unmistakable earthmoving bellow of Crowbar, stomps forward as a solo artist for the very first time. On Dream In Motion, the inaugural effort from his eponymously monikered incarnation, the Dark Lord of the Southern Riff stretches his creative wings as he introduces new emotional depth and sonic texture that strengthen, rather than tarnish, the metal monolith's career legacy and rightly revered catalog.
eighth album, Hunter Gatherer, is an unflinchingly ruthless study of a clueless humankind's ever-increasing velocity into an uncertain future, furthering the reach of the band's always expanding dark roots. Songs like "A Secret Door," "Colossus," and "Age Of Apes" are ready-made anthems for the modern age, each struggling for a collective meaning amidst the savagery of technology.
