Metal Music Release Friday: November 22nd, 2018

It’s Black Friday. Today is the day where consumerism is the game. But instead of fighting traffic, crowds full of narcissistic people fighting over a cheap laptop or TV just to be immortalized on social media, long lines to check out, and dealing with cold weather, why not give the gift that keeps on giving. Online record label gift certificates, or buy your overseas friend that ltd vinyl release they have been eyeing? Lots of bands have special high quality merchandise, discounts, and re-issues super cheap for this time of year. This also helps support the underground bands and their own families while having the feeling of giving back to the musicians that are there through thick and thin.

With that said, let’s check out a few NEW releases for today!


“On November 23rd, Cattle Decapitation will release their new rarities collection, Medium Rarities, via Metal Blade Records. Featuring 6 previously unreleased pre-Human Jerky (1999) demos with front-man Travis Ryan on guitar (while also handling vocal duties), plus the long-sought-after To Serve Man (2002) bonus track, "Rotting Children For Remote Viewing" - in addition to other rarities (including the 6 songs from 2005's split EP with Caninus!) - this compilation spans the band's 22-year long career and is a must-have for any Cattle Decapitation fan.”

German thrash metal legends Sodom is releasing a new EP today called Partisan. While the EP is only available on Amazon and Itunes, there is no doubt that Sodom has stayed true to their thrash metal form that has carried them through the years. This is a must have and makes a great gift for any thrash metal listener, both modern and classic. CDs/Vinyls are also available through Amazon and Steamhammer. Click here to get a copy!


UNEARTH belong to the most renowned American metal acts to emerge in the late 90’s/early 2000s uniting a Pantera-like groove, elements of hardcore, the fist-pumping anthemic power of traditional metal and melodic death metal. Now, the band finally reveals the follow-up to 2014 “Watchers Of Rule”, entitled “Extinction(s)” already its first single “Incinerate” caused quite a stir with fans and media celebrating this much anticipated sign of life. The band’s 2018 offering is a 38 minutes long barrage of riffs, hooks, punishing grooves and vitriolic aggression that is as uncompromising, outspoken and intense as you would come to expect from this UNEARTH who release the album on time with the group’s 20th anniversary. Available as orange LP+CD, CD and digital album.”

Extiction(s) is a Napalm Records release. Click here to get you or your metalhead friend a copy!
