‘The Pale King’ Is Outta This World

Testament and their intergalactic brethren, take us on a voyage through time and space in their latest video. Though I was expecting vicious sand worms and maybe a planet eating robot or two, it’s an awesome song. No need to guard your butts in this abduction, so relax!

Our Dreams Aren’t All Dead And Buried Thanks To Cannibal Corpse

Adult Swim had the death metal legends cover the theme song for the “Squidbillies” Halloween episode. As a fan of these backwater squids, let me just say, hearing Cannibal Corpse cover the country theme song was different especially because they play livelier riffs but it was awesome! The theme song has been performed in different genres, but CANNIBAL CORPSE! What’s not to love about it? The episode expires on November 21 so go watch it now!!!

Hand Me That ‘Superjoint’

Phil Anselmo’s project, Superjoint (formerly known as Superjoint Ritual), has released a new single titled “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” which is the same name as the upcoming album. Superjoint exclusively premiered the track on Loudwire.com and can be streamed through SoundCloud.  The November 11 release of the record is their first one in 13 years, and it will be released through Anselmo’s record label Housecore Records. Take a hit of this gritty goodness.

Volbeat ‘Seal The Deal’ With A Dose Of Nostalgia

Volbeat brings us a tale of a modern Rocky in their new video “Seal The Deal.” The single comes off their album Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie which was released on June 3. Though there is no appearance from Mickey or that one pointless robot, it’s still an enjoyable story with a catchy song.

Trivium Release ‘The Storm’ Out Of The Vault

I don’t mean Disney’s dungeon of forgotten souls, I’m talking about the Trivium’s vault! The quartet released “The Storm” off of the reissue of their debut album Ember To Inferno which will be released on December 2 through Cooking Vinyl. This reward to their faithful legion offers a rare glimpse in to their beginning. Though their old sound is not unrecognizable, it has a dominant touch of melodic thrash elements.”The Storm” is definitely added to my dragon hunting play list.
