Tau Cross – “Killing the King”

Tau Cross premiered a new properly seizure-inducing music video on Youtube this week to promote their upcoming second album, Pillar of Fire, which comes out July 21st on Relapse Records . “Killing the King” shows the group’s anti-authoritarian bent which Relapse is trying to turn political to appeal to their scenester sludge rock and metalcore audience’s hatred of everything Donald Trump despite the band’s obvious intent and medievalisms in the published lyrics.

The Lurking Fear – Out of the Voiceless Grave Out August 11th

The Lurking Fear, the H.P.

Upcoming Black Sabbath Live DVD

Black Sabbath guitarist and primary composer Tony Iommi let loose in a recent interview that following the band’s final The End tour, they spent three days recording footage for an upcoming live DVD according to Blabbermouth. Hopefully, the DVD will feature better better vocals from Ozzy Osbourne than the recent tour and cover a wider breadth of material than the limited set list of said tour. Hopefully, interviews will provide more insights and golden nuggets than Tony Iommi’s erratic autiobiography.
