Loud Rock Charts: 1/8

Alas, it is time once again to bring ourselves back into reality. However, that also means more awesome music for the masses. This week brings some really neat stuff out of Corsair, a band that actually self released their first full length album back in April, but is now signed with Shadow Kingdom Records, and thus is releasing it under them on January 23rd.

Of course, a name you don’t need any introduction to, Rammstein is also on this week’s list. Expect lots of creepy, yet awesome, piano interludes.

I sincerely hope you all had a great break during the holidays. Here’s to another metal year!

Loud Rock Charts: 12/11

It’s that time of the year again. The time where we can all just stop giving two fucks about life and be as lazy as we want and drink eggnog till we die from heart congestion.

In all seriousness, this is the last week of charts, and what a year it has been. We’ve seen some phenomenal records and some disappointments, but overall, 2012 has been grandiose for us headbangers. I can only hope 2013 will reach the same sensationalism, but with bands like Cynic, Cult of Luna, The Ocean, and Scale the Summit already prepping their new studio albums, I doubt we have much to worry about.

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:

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…
