Primus have been gearing up for the release of their tribute album to the classic film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory for months now. Back in July, the group announced their classic lineup reunion and unveiled plans to release Primus & the Chocolate Factory, a re-imagining of the film’s soundtrack in a true Primus off-puttingly psychedelic fashion. Finally due for release next week, the album can now be heard in its entirety via New York Times. It’s a trip, man.

Bloodbath-GrandMorbidFuneralLarge

The much anticipated return of death metal supergroup Bloodbath has so far been given mixed reaction. The music is still patented Bloodbath Swedish death metal, but the group’s new vocalist in Paradise Lost‘s Nick Holms doesn’t quite live up to the fuller roars of former frontman Mikael Akerfeldt. It’s always poor practice to judge an album based on one single, of course, so it’s best to reserve judgement until the new album, Grand Morbid Funeral, drops next month. In the mean time, we’ve been given another new track, ‘Famine of God’s Word’, which you can stream after the jump.

schizoid lloyd

Dutch progressive metal act Schizoid Lloyd are soon to be the go-to band for those missing the flamboyance and grandiosity from the likes of Queen and Mr. Bungle. The act’s forthcoming Blood Music release The Last Note In God’s Magnum Opus promises to build upon the maddening groundwork laid by those bands, augmented by the modern melancholic prog style of Leprous and a genre-defying sense of adventure. We’ve already been given a very promising look at the record via the track ‘Suicide Penguin’, but now we’re pleased to premiere the equally astounding ‘Misanthrope Puppet.’ Stream the track after the jump.

blut aus nord 2014

The folks over at Noisey are hosting a full album stream of Blut Aus Nord‘s Memoria Vetusta III – Saturnian Poetry, due out October 10 via Debemur Morti Productions. The album is one of the most anticipated black metal releases of the year, set forth by a stream of the song ‘Paein‘ which was made available back in September. This is a recognition long overdue for a band that has sadly fallen just under the radar for most of their career. Hopefully this album will propel them into the respected echelons of their contemporaries.
