This week in new metal music is one of the more diverse in recent memory. You’ve got extreme metal in Watain, electro-deathcore with Born of Osiris, and a huge epic album from Fleshgod Apocalypse. Speaking of which, they’re coming to San Francisco this Sunday with their very own grand piano. And we all know there’s nothing more metal than a grand piano…right?
