New music from ERRA and Of Mice & Men highlight a solid release week with Knotfest Premieres from Once Awake and Ghosts of Atlantis headlining a very strong Pulse of the Maggots playlist (including a bonus track from Pulse of the Maggots Fest alumni Orbit Culture).
Two of the biggest adds this week on Tribe Leaders came from bands announcing new albums while sporting new labels with ERRA dropping “Divisionary” and announcing their 5th album, first with UNFD , and Of Mice & Men releasing "Obsolete" from their upcoming Feb 26th album 'Timeless' which will be the band's first on Sharptone Records.
Plus Corey Taylor's "Samantha's Gone" hot off the new music video and Accept's "Zombie Apocalypse" join this top 50 tracks of Metal & Rock spearheaded by Bring Me the Horizon, System of a Down, The Hu, Architects and more.
The Pulse of the Maggots playlist, which gathers the top 100 recent emerging artist releases, sees new adds from this week's Knotfest Premieres in Once Awake (previously opened Pulse of the Maggots' Fest back in Nov) and Ghosts of Atlantis. Speaking of Pulse of the Maggots Fest, stand-out Orbit Culture adds a track to the list in "Wargblod" a bonus track of their 'Nija' album.
Additional standout adds come from Denmark's Ghost Iris with their brutal new track "Paper Tiger" and Gatecreeper's "Starved" with Wheel, ENMY & ILLT joining Brand of Sacrifice, Sylosis, Darknet, Cane Hill, Earthists (Knotfest Premiere) and more.
Joining all those adds in this week's best releases on the New Flesh Playlist (the most recent 100 tracks from rock & metal) is The Crown's "Motordeath", Promise's "Bruried", Stam1na's "Sirkkeli and more.
The tracks slide into a full barrage featuring the newest from The Pretty Reckless & Tom Morello, Chevelle, Love and Death, Korpiklanni, The Hu, Dines x Heafy, 156/Silence (Pulse Fest alumni) and more.
