Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on May 27, 2022

Get a rundown of the best of the week in metal soanning death, doom, black and extreme.

This week we have a good variety of hard hitting death metal, artsy black metal, with some doom on the side. To stream all of our favorite new releases, check out the official New Flesh Plalylist on your favorite streaming platform.

Baest – Justitia – Death Metal

Kicking off this week we have more death metal from rising Danish brutalizers Baest. The follow up to their critically lauded album, Necro Sapiens, Justitia is more of the rowdy death metal we have come to know and love from Baest. If you need a soundtrack to breaking stuff this weekend, here you go.

Besvärjelsen – Atlas – Doom

The sophomore album from Besvärjelsen is richly texture doom metal with grunge, stoner, blues, and psychedelic rock elements liberally sprinkled throughout. The soulful vocals of Lea Amling Alazam bring such a layer of depth that you can fully immerse yourself in this album. Dark and delightful, I highly encourage you to listen to this front to back.

Black Void – Antithesis – Black Metal

Does Lars Are Nedland ever sleep? Long-time member of Borknagar and behind the lighter project White Void, presents the other side of the coin and vents his darker side with his latest project, Black Void. There is no quarter given on this abrasive yet beautiful album, and we shouldn’t have expected any.

Decapitated – Cancer Culture – Death metal

Utterly aggressive,  groove-laden and full of adrenaline, Cancer Culture is a blistering affair full of adrenaline and spite. Decapitated have evolved throughout their career, but even with the more melodic elements on this album, they haven’t lost an ounce of fury. There is a reason they are one of death metal’s premiere bands.

IATT – Magnum Opus – Extreme Metal

Elements of black, death, and progressive metal come together to make this a daunting but rewarding listen. Artistic with a capital “A”, and rich in atmospheric, epic melody and saxophone + violin, this is an album that will take you on a journey.
