Did you know that this week sees the first new Primus album in over a decade?! There’s some other stuff too, so soak it in:
Anthrax – Worship Music (Megaforce)
ÆGES – Roaches (Hawthorne Street)
Dream Theater – A Dramatic Turn of Events (Roadrunner)
Haste The Day – Haste The Day Vs. Haste The Day (DVD/CD) (Solid State)
Mogwai – Earth Division (Sub Pop)
Pathology – Awaken To The Suffering (Victory)
Primus – Green Naugahyde (Prawn Songs/ATO Records)
Staind – Staind (Atlantic)
The Devil Wears Prada – Dead Throne (Ferret Music)
Vader – Welcome To The Morbid Reich (Nuclear Blast)
We Came As Romans – Understanding What We’ve Grown To Be (Equal Vision)
Wolves In The Throne Room – Celestial Lineage (Southern Lord)
Wolves Like Us – Late Love (Prosthetic)
I sometimes wonder how Pathology feels being one of the only respectable bands still signed to Victory. I guess it’s sort of like that awkward situation where you’re talking with dudes who notice your obscure t-shirt and think they identify with you and insist on talking about how great Asking Alexandria are while you smile and nod.
That reminds me, I once had a guy ask me if I enjoyed Emmure after he found out I write about heavier music. The dude has a neck tattoo now. True story.
Have a good week!
