Time for a new pack of music on this Wednesday morning! I’m amazed by how many bands I’ve already discovered since I started this website and how many I still discover every day, either helped by you lot – I massively appreciate that! – or by myself. It’s like the production rate of metal and the creation rate of new bands are much much higher than my metal consumption rate. I just hope it is, because then my supply will never run dry!
That said, what new stuff do we have in store today? We’ll start in Southern Europe with an Italian band that’s currently on hiatus and has been for quite a while. Doesn’t seem like they’ll ever get out of their dormant state, so you’ll have to satisfy yourself with the one track we have here and the album which it’s on.
The next track isn’t a new band, but it is a new song. It’s Insomnium, one of my personal favorite bands, from Finland, joined by Dark Tranquillity’s Mikael Stanne on vocals. Bloody bloody awesome, I can tell you that in advance!
And then finally, because there is non-metal music that is good – though only some – and because I’m a huge fan of the movie The Boondock Saints, some Dropkick Murphys. I’m sure you’ve heard the name of this
Irish American folk-punk rock group before. Cheerful Irish music, with banjoes and accordions. Get y’er Guiness out laddies!
