This week on GIMME METAL:
Darkthrone Vinyl Club Spotlight – It’s with great pleasure that GIMME METAL‘s Vinyl Club presents a new edition of Darkthrone’s Under A Funeral Moon! To celebrate, Grave Convulsions host Anthony Bartkewicz brings two hours of grim, lo-fi madness looking at the album and some prime / off-the-road Darkthrone cuts, curated by both himself and Andee Connors from Battleflutes and Sideways Skulls! So, in other words, the best Darkthrone special ever! Join the live chat for this vinyl club spotlight to talk all things Darkthrone, black metal, and more!
Primordial St. Patrick’s Day All-Irish Metal Special – Formed in 1987, Ireland’s Primordial hit the metal world with their blasted concoction of black metal, doom, and Celtic roots music, well on display over their sprawling eight LP discography — their latest being 2018’s Exile Among The Ruins on Metal Blade Records. Vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga has fronted the group since 1993 and returns for an all-Irish metal special for St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t miss it.
Eyehategod Guest DJ Special – Last week, New Orleans sludge institution Eyehategod released their first album in seven years with A History Of Nomadic Behavior. Singer Mike IX Williams said of the songs on the album, “We’re not a political band, but it was hard not to be affected by the news from the past year. During this recording, I thought a lot about how stupid humanity has become and how America is now completely divided with these people who don’t believe in science and blindly follow liars and nonsensical ideologies. Some of those feelings may have found their way into these songs, but it is mostly subliminal.” A History Of Nomadic Behavior follows a period that saw the band on the road for three years, preceded by Williams suffering liver failure and a transplant. Welcom eMike IX Williams’ first GIMME METAL guest DJ Special to celebrate the release.
Coming soon to GIMME METAL TV:
Blood Incantation Live At Saint Vitus Bar – Shot by Frank Huang (Max Volume Silence), don’t miss this phenomenal live performance from cosmic death metal legion Blood Incantation. Yes, they’re the ones with the cool alien album art (Hidden History Of The Human Race) that folks couldn’t get enough of upon the record’s release. With cryptic, ethereal lyrics, and classic 1970s artwork by sci-fi god Bruce Pennington, Hidden History Of The Human Race is both a meditative inquiry on the mystery and nature of human consciousness, and a dynamic foray into the realms of progressive, brutal, and atmospheric death metal. This live set shot at the renowned Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, New York mixes atmosphere with brutal, driving, raw riffs. Join the live chat and hang out to watch one of the finest acts out there.
