New Flesh: Releases from Funeral, We Are The Catalyst and More!

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in Uncategorized on December 10, 2021

Tech death, cold doom and spacey disco synth comprise some of this week’s fresh new cuts.

This week’s metal releases reflect the season with icy doom, weirdly fantastic sci-fi, and the ever necessary death metal…

Alpha Bootis – Science Fiction-Double Feature – Space Disco Synth Metal

Sci-Fi story fueled Alpha Bootis have combined their two previous EPs Jump to Alpha Bootis and Stowaway Ants into one full-length extraterrestrial extravaganza! Combining rock music, theatrical soundscapes and sonic effects akin to a 1980s arcade, Alpha Bootis have crafted something both nostalgic in its appeal and unique in its approach.

Dessiderium – Aria – Technical Death Metal

Only five songs, but those five songs are an hour’s worth of emotive guitars, somber vocals, and thundering drums that melds together prog and black metal for something stunning. This is an album you can absolutely get lost in and forget that you’ve spent an hour listening to it.

Funeral – Praesentialis in Aeternum – Doom Metal

Agony and pain, frosty orchestration and composition, this is a winter album if there ever was one. As one of the stalwarts of funeral doom, the aptly named Funeral put out their own distinct signature with Praesentialis In Aeternum. The album is a long processing through the ice with a smattering of ferocity and epic gothic gloom.

Malignant Altar – Realms of Exquisite Morbidity

Death metal die-hards will love these brutal new kids on the block. Delightfully guttural vocals, furious drums and the balance of slow, headbang worthy moments bring back that classic death metal sound.

There’s A Light – f̶o̶r̶ ̶w̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶y̶ ̶I ̶h̶o̶pe̶? for what must we hope? – Post Rock

There’s a Light is one of the calmer moments of the week, but they’re no less stunning. An ebb and flow of quiet introspective moments and soaring, grandiose moments, the album itself is an odyssey of sound.

We Are The Catalyst – Perseverance – Alternative Metal

This album is an absolute blast! Catchy yet still technically intricate, We Are The Catalyst  combine Alternative Metal, Pop Metal, and Dark Rock into a unique blend with a strong modern feel. The album is filled with both light and darkness, hope and despair, heavy riffs, and infectious choruses.
