Loud Rock Charts: 12/4

As the year slowly comes to a close, new releases will begin to shrink in size. However, that does not by any means represent the quality of the records. This week sees Cult of Luna’s newest record, Vertikal, on display, with the 2nd track off of the album currently up for stream here: http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/cult-of-luna-i-the-weapon-single-stream/. If the single is indicative of the entire album, it’s going to be one hell of a release.

I hope everyone had a very metal Thanksgiving break because I sure did. Here’s what happened in the life of Bröötalisk these past two days:

1) Interview The Haarp Machine. See them play with The Faceless and Revocation.

2) Interview Brendon Small from Dethklok. See them play with Machine Head, All That Remains, and Black Dahlia Murder.

In other news, Rage Against the Machine is rereleasing one of their masterpieces for the 20th anniversary of their self titled debut. Does this foreshadow the coming of more RATM? Only time will tell…

Lights Out

Loud Rock Charts: 11/6

In this week’s edition of new metally things that you should care about, we have a group of bands that aren’t quite as well known as the past few weeks’ additions, but they’re still just as awesome. Something noteworthy about this week’s adds: The Sacred People marks Tiamat’s 10th record. No matter what band you are, ten full lengths is an impressive feat in its own regard. Also,  is it just me or is this the millionth reissue of a Megadeth album? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, it’s just remarkable that after over 20 years Megadeth is still making waves in the loud rock genre.
