Fallujah continued their evolution into the world of atmospheric death metal last year with their celebrated sophomore full-length The Flesh Prevails. Around these parts, there’s some behind-the-scenes disputes on the album’s quality and importance among staff, but that didn’t keep it from landing at #12 on our Best Of 2014 countdown.
Unfortunately we haven’t had much opportunity to see the band in a headlining capacity since its release, so hopefully we’ll begin seeing more of that throughout 2015. We’re already beginning to see some signs of life out of the Bay Area act and their 2015 touring schedule for the act’s recently announced East Coast / Midwest tour in support of The Contortionist, but now the group has expanded their touring plans to include West Coast headlining dates with support from Archspire, Lorna Shore, and The Zenith Passage.

The success of Ghost B.C. has shown there’s a metal audience for music that isn’t particularly heavy if it’s surrounded by dark words and themes. A California prog band that embraces darkness in happy music that you might want to check out after the break.
Remember how back in school the kids whose last names started M-Z could show up later than the rest of you because it took a while to call the roll that far? That’s kind of how our two-part look at what your Heavy Blog is Heavy Staff is (really) listening to for the first weekend of November works. The stragglers show off their 3×3’s after the break.
We here at Heavy Blog Is Heavy have done our damned best at keeping you in the loop regarding Black Crown Initiate and their much anticipated eOne record The Wreckage Of Stars. My maestro of a colleague in Noyan was even kind enough to share his pretty thoughts and words with you in his review it last month. Now you can ignore whatever we have said previously and make up your own damn mind regarding this (incredible) metal release. Full stream after the jump folks! View Full Article »
