Every Friday, a wagon arrives at the Sleeping Village’s gates, stuffed to the brim with our sustenance for the following week. Today is the day we must offload all this new music, and so, in the process, we thought it would be worthwhile to share some of our choice picks from this veritable mass of fresh meat. This is what we’ll be listening to today here at the Village HQ. We hope you join us in doing so!
Note: there has been a veritable tsunami of high-quality releases today. This is but a fraction of the stuff you should check out. Reviews in forthcoming days will seek to fill the gaps! - Ed.
On the docket for today, April 24th, 2020:
Marmalade Knives, Total Fucking Destruction, Sölicitör, and Lord Fowl (and Firelink!)
BONUS TRACK RELEASE!
Firelink - Where Demons Bore (New Single)
I'd say that this track is a return to form, but realistically, given their only output until today was a debut album that hit our Albums of the Year list in the face, it's safe to say that in their short timeline Firelink have never strayed from excellence. Instead, then, I'll simply argue that Where Demons Bore is the best track this melodic black metal duo has created thusfar. This is a culmination of what Firelink do best: an energetic-yet-melodic application of epic storytelling. This track is a genuine joy to consume, and an exceedingly promising teaser for their forthcoming sophomoric attempt, due this June.

We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
