Multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö and crew are proud to release details about the first Nightingale album in seven years. Hard to believe it’s been nearly a decade since White Darkness, but it seems that 2014’s Retribution will soon be available for us to listen to in all of its prog stylings.
Progressive and technical death metal act Beyond Creation were lauded by many as being one of the best acts in the genre, even when they were only one album deep into their discography. 2011’s The Aura put the band on the map with one of the best debut albums in recent memory, earning them a spot on Season of Mist’s roster and a much sought-after and quickly sold-out vinyl release from Blood Music. Finally, the act are on the cusp of proving they aren’t victims of the sophomore slump with Earthborn Evolution, which is streaming now via Lambgoat.
Primus have been gearing up for the release of their tribute album to the classic film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory for months now.

I’ve had the Revocation album for a little under a month now, and it’s been on constant rotation since I got it. I can safely say that it’s definitely the band’s work, and combines a little bit of everything that made their last 4 releases fantastic and put it into a pot to make what will surely become on of the best albums of 2014. Unfortunately, many of my friends have been left in the dust, unable to hear more than just the singles the band released over the past few weeks. Well, fret not! Now you can stream the new record in full! Check it out after the jump!
