New Flesh 9/15: Releases From Baroness, Brujeria, Tomb Mold and More!

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on September 15, 2023

Columnist Cori Westbrook presents a shortlist of important album releases ranging from brutal death metal to anthemic hard rock.

This week we have the return of some metal masters, some fun Nintendo-inspired revelry and a solid dose of bludgeoning death metal. For all of our favorite new releases, both singles and albums, be sure to check out the official Knotfest New Flesh playlist.

Baroness – Stone – Progressive Sludge

Kicking off this week we have the vibrant new offering from sludge/progressive outfit Baroness. Always striking, Baroness are taking things a different way, as marked by the end of the chromatically themed album titles. With more edge and experimentation this album is unexpected but intriguing.

Blind Equation – Death Awaits – Cybergrind

Unique is an understatement when it comes to Blind Equation. Combining grindecore and your favorite Nintendo inspired synth sounds you get something both savage and fun. Death Awaits is an intense experience, but surprisingly accessible.

Brujeria – Esto Es Brujeria  – Death Metal

All death metal, zero bullshit, this sixteen track leviathan will pummel you into submission over the course of its 55 minutes. While Brujeria exists on an ever changing rotation of musicians and contributors, they maintain their core, but with each release aesthetically and artistically unique.

Corey Taylor – CMF2 – Hard Rock

Corey Taylor is embracing his bluesy side, with an undeniable pop-rock influence, that makes CMF2 a blast to listen to. He and his band have built upon the core sound they established on the CMFT debut, but refined and built upon that core for something distinct and energizing and not without some surprises.

TesseracT – War Of Being – Progressive Metal 

Angry, ethereal, dynamic and robust, the latest offering from the UK progressive masterminds is a triumph. The massive production, intricate drums, renewed aggression in the riffss and vocals and zero skimping on the bass give this album flair and flavor. *chefs kiss!
