So, in case you’ve missed it, The Haunted are back. I know they didn’t really go anywhere, but they’re back to their roots. While I liked former vocalist Peter Dolving’s take on the band and their slower, groovier albums; The Haunted were always about aggressive thrash to me, and Marco Aro was the defining vocalist of their sound. Well, Marco is back in the band, and so is the old sound! And they’re working on an album as well. Also worth noting is that Feared/Six Feet Under guitarist/producer and Youtube gear demo legend Ola Englund is also in the band now. This is all old news for some, so what’s new? They have a video and a new song! Check it out after the jump.

WeightlessInOrbit
We’ve got out our eyes and ears closely set on Australia, you already know that, and it’s exactly because they pick up such great, relatively nameless bands. Weightless in Orbit have been a thing for a while now, touring around the country with several recognized names. However, we assume that not all of you are able to fly to Australia for small progressive acts (how I wish I could!) and so we’re very happy to announce that the band have released initial material from their upcoming album, Fractures. Head on over the jump to check it out!

Blog Love – Rolled Up Sleeves

RolledUp
The blogosphere (that’s a thing, shut up) is filled with excellent writers and great places to find differing opinions and styles. Every so often though a blog comes along that reshuffles the deck a bit and focus on some new concepts or angle we weren’t really paying attention to. Music has many different facets to it, so many that it’s in fact impossible to comprehend all of them in full. Rolled Up Sleeves is a great example for that, focusing on the day jobs and economical realities of musicians.

Obituary
It’s nice to see that the forefathers of death metal are keeping up so well with the legions of young bands they themselves have influenced. Between last year’s Surgical Steel from Carcass and Colored Sands from Gorguts, the old school guys have proved that they are still just as relevant today as they were 20 years ago, and we can yet another band to this list of revived monarchs: Obituary. The legendary death metal outfit is set to release their eighth studio album, entitled Inked In Blood, on Oct. 28 through Relapse Records, and for those clamoring to hear some new music from these death metal juggernauts, an album trailer has been released for your listening pleasure, containing samples of three tracks off of the upcoming opus.
