Year-end list season began earlier this week, and now metal mag Decibel has published their Top 40 Albums of 2015. You can check out artwork and commentary if you pick up the issue, and browse the full list below. Like last year, they saved the top spot for a promising young band (and actually this time the #2 slot is one too). But they've of course got veterans as always, like Enslaved (#37), Napalm Death (#25), Iron Maiden (#23), Satan (#12), Killing Joke (#10) and more. They have a good amount of the "indie crossover" metal on there, like Ghost (#34), Myrkur (#28), Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (#27), Deafheaven (#19) and the Baroness album that isn't even out yet coming in at #6. There are also comeback albums from two not-exactly-metal bands: Failure (#22) and Refused (#15). Check out the full list below.
Two bands on this list will be going on the Decibel Mag tour in 2016.

The tour hits NYC twice, first for a Saint Vitus show on July 31, and then for a matinee at ABC No Rio (8/1) the next day. Advance tickets for Vitus are on sale now. After that run, Thou will go on a collaborative tour with The Body in support of their collaborative album, You, Whom I Have Always Hated. All dates (with more TBA) are listed below.
Speaking of False, they finally followed their 2012 split with Barghest (who have members of Thou) with their first full length last week. Like their 2011 EP, it's untitled, and out now on Gilead Media. You can stream the full thing below.

The Body at The Acheron, June 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
As you may know, the Gilead Media Fest is happening in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on July 18 - 20 and has announced a number of additions to what was an already loaded lineup. Fest-goers can catch black metal bruisers Barghest, get solid doses of sludge and doom from Kowloon Walled City and Loss, and bear witness to what looks to be UK experimental black/death band Lychgate's debut US performance. That's in addition to performances from previously announced acts Ash Borer, Hell, Inter Arma, Hexer, Mutilation Rites, Oozing Wound and more. The Body and Thou will be collaborating for a performance, too, which will be one that will surely rattle ear drums. tickets are on sale now. Look for two more bands to be announced soon.
Speaking of The Body, they're touring again and hitting Saint Vitus on 3/22. Still no word on advance tickets for that one.

Inter Arma @ Hopscotch 2013 (more by Karen A. Mann)
Gilead Media Music Festival has announced the first round of confirmed bands for the fest's second installation, set to take place from July 18-20, 2014 in Oshkosh, WI. Gilead Media label-mates Ash Borer, Mutilation Rites (who play Saint Vitus December 12 with Revenge), Inter Arma (who embark on a tour with Black Tusk soon that hits Saint Vitus on October 30), Thou and more will lead what is already a doozy of a lineup.
Two bands I'd want to check out would be Salem, Oregon's blackened/doom specialists Hell and Minneapolis-based black metal band False. Gilead says to expect around twenty-five bands when the full lineup is complete. Stream a track by False and see the list of announced bands below...

Or you could go see Italian glam punks Giuda (pronounced "Judah" if you were wondering) who will be at St. Vitus. The crowd for their show at Cake Shop last week went absolutely nuts, this will be a fun show... and how often do you get to see an Italian glam band?
Or if black metal is more your thing, Minnesota's False are making a rare stop in NYC for a show at Acheron.

A list of all suggested shows for the next two weeks, as well as a few audio streams, are below. What did I miss?
Louisiana black metal crew Barghest (members of Thou) and Minneapolis crew False will team up for a split due on Gilead Media on September 17. The 12" LP will feature three tracks in total, two of which come courtesy of the former, with the third being a whopper/epic jam from False. Stream the entire thing (in two parts) below.
False, who's monster self-titled debut hit last year (also via Gilead Media), will spend the tail-end of August through September on the road, tagging dates from coast to coast. The shows include a Brooklyn stop on September 8th at Acheron with Mortals.
All tour dates (the tour is still in the works) are below, along streams of the first False record and the split.
