The above pic was posted on Slayer's Instagram earlier in the week. Does it herald, as many expect, a new Slayer album in 2015? Is it the genesis of their pivotal post-Hanneman/Lombardo/Rubin album? Or is Kerry King just a huge Fraiser fan? I guess we'll let time decide.

At least we know Dave Lombardo isn't planning a Slayer comeback. He's more than content with his current project PHILM, telling Metal Hammer regarding a possible return to Slayer's drummer's stool: "No. That's it. I'm done now. I've got lots of other things on my plate and I now know that, when it comes to money, you don't have any friends in this business. I won't ever be going back." No friends in this business? Maybe my friend George Washington will change your mind! (Sorry, I need that back for the parking meter.)

Speaking of money, here's a name that might send shivers down the spine of your PayPal account: Blake Judd. The Nachtmystium frontman is again accused of making away with fans' money without delivering the merch. Whether or not there's any validity to the allegations, the Nachtmystium Facebook page is no more.

As for albums that have a good chance of finding your hands, Iron Maiden have embarked on a huge reissue project. Not only will their entire '80s run get repressed on vinyl, but the original singles are making their way back in print, too. Check out the details plus release schedule below along with a shot-for-shot LEGO remake of Maiden killing "The Wicker Man" from Rock in Rio. Everything is awesome.

Corrosion of Conformity will also be reissuing two of their albums on wax, 1991's Blind and 1994's breakout Deliverance. The band is set to hit the road with GWAR later this year.

For new stuff, the mighty Moss will be putting out an EP on the perfect date of October 31 via their own Stone Tapes. Check out "Carmilla (Marcilla)" below. The adventurous Manes have penciled in October 10 as the day for Be All End All through Debemur Morti. And Orange Goblin will add to the mountainous October pile of anticipated releases with the long-awaited Back From The Abyss, out on October 7 through Candlelight Records.

In live show notes, the first round of bands for Roadburn 2015 have been announced, tapping cowgoths Fields Of The Nephilim along with stoners Monolord and Electric Citizen. In other fest news, Housecore Horror Fest lost Satyricon and gained Napalm Death and Origin. Satyricon had to kill all of their US dates, so, alas, they will not be playing Knotfest.

If you were catching some High-A baseball action, you may have seen Exmortus shredding through "The Star-Spangled Banner." Sleepy Hollow has taught me that Francis Scott Key probably would've been like, "Hell yeah," before punching a demon in the face. History, man.

Finally, in more serious news, former Metal Maniacs editor Katherine Ludwig has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Metal Maniacs certainly helped school a generation of extreme metalheads before the Internet. Check out her Facebook page for more information including donations. Wishing her the best.

YOB's 'Clearing The Path To Ascend' artwork

Now that you're, ahem, fully briefed, let's recap all of the A/V transmissions.

Full albums first: YOB streamed the entirety of Clearing The Path To Ascend at Pitchfork (September 2, Neurot Recordings - preorder). And OSDMers Disinterred have put up Live at Vlamrock 2014 for 'name your price' at their Bandcamp. Stream the latter below.

For single tracks and videos, Opeth gave the audio of "Eternal Rains Will Come" a visual. Consult your doctor before taking all of the drugs. Anaal Nathrakh have unveiled "Idol" from Desideratum (October 28, Metal Blade - preorder). They'll be playing Maryland Deathfest 2015. Obituary are also showing off the first cut from Inked in Blood (October 28, Relapse - preorder). They'll be touring later this year with Death to All along with dates with Carcass. 1349 have stirred the pot for Massive Cauldron of Chaos and "Exorcism" spilled out (September 30, Season of Mist - preorder). And Old Wounds -- who are heading out on an Invisible Oranges presented tour -- dropped "Ritual" from Death Projection (September 16, Good Fight - preorder). Stream all of the tracks below.

Got it? Good. To shows we go:

TODAY (FRIDAY 8/29): Provided you're not following up on your dream last night where Crüe played, today is loaded. Mouth of the Architect, Set And Setting, So Hideous, and Hush are at the Acheron (tickets). Meanwhile, the Paper Box has the enormous bill of Foreign Sounds, Sol y Nieve, Red Stream, Inc, Krieg, Horrendous, Wastelander, Sacristy, Human Bodies, and Dweller In The Valley (tickets). For those that like it with a more traditional/thrash lean, there's Fantom Warior, Castrator, Sacrificial Blood, Devolving Messiah, and Maximum Oversatan at Saint Vitus (tickets).

SATURDAY (8/30): Okay, deep breath. Punk? You got it: Negative Approach, Agitätor, Go Deep, and Spewing Cum at the Grand Victory (tickets). Want a slightly more metallic edge? Modern Life Is War, Nothing, Give, and The Land of Blood & Sunshine at the Bowery Ballroom (tickets). But if you're here for metal -- and of course you are -- there's Dehumanized, Scaphism, Necroptic Engorgement, Corpse Hoarder, and Lethal Entity at the Acheron (tickets). More? Sure: Pentacle, Perversion, Mutant Supremacy, and Hypoxia at Saint Vitus (tickets). And if you you just need volume, J Mascis' psychedelic blues jam project Heavy Blanket play Union Pool's backyard in the afternoon for free.

Looking for late adds and dates ahead? NYC Metal Show Calendar has got you covered.

Let's talk IO: We dredged the new release lake in Upcoming Metal Releases. We had premieres from Falls of Rauros, Nightbringer, Sandworm, and Myopic. And we got our transcribed talk on with Austin Lunn of Panopticon and wrestler UltraMantis Black.

Alright, consider the decks cleared. What did we miss? What are your Labor Day Weekend plans? Let us know and catch the reams of streams, and other noted details below.

people outside Other Music on Record Store Day 2013 (more by PSquared)
Other Music

Other Music, the NYC record store (15 E 4th St) and record label (home to Nude Beach, Mutual Benefit, and others), has published its top 30 albums of 2013 list.

Kingdom at Bowery Ballroom in December (more by David Andrako)

As mentioned, Brooklyn producer Kingdom released his his new EP, Vertical XL, last week (5/28) via Fade to Mind. If you're a fan of the darker, subdued side of headphone dance music, it's worth giving this a listen. The opening track, "Bank Head," which features lead vocals from Kelela, can be streamed, along with clips of the other tracks, below.

Kingdom will be supporting the new EP with some dates this year, including a show with Kelela in LA tonight (6/5), and he'll return home for a Brooklyn show on June 15 at Knitting Factory, as part of the Northside Festival. Tickets for that show are on sale now, and you can also try to get in with your Northside Badge. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Kelela, who caught our ears last year when she sang on Teengirl Fantasy's album, has been working on her own career as well. She has a mixtape coming out this June via Fade to Mind and has some solo shows coming up this summer. She'll be going on a tour with inc. and Total Freedom which includes the previously discussed NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 14 (tickets).

Earl Sweatshirt
Earl Sweatshirt

Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt will be making his SXSW debut this year (he wasn't there when the rest of his crew first played), and will be doing collaborative sets with Captain Murphy, aka Flying Lotus' rap alter ego (who collaborated with him on "Between Friends").

Earl just appeared at Flying Lotus' LA show at Low End Theory last week (3/7) and they performed three tracks off Earl's upcoming album, Doris, "Burgundy" (produced by Pharrell), "Hive," and "Guild." Mac Miller is featured on that last one and he was at the LA show too. You can check it all out in a video from the show, which is below. Also below is the video for previously released Doris track, "Chum," and Earl has another new video on the way too.

DOWNLOAD: Inc. - "5 Days" (MP3)


LA duo Inc. released their debut EP back in 2011 and they're finally set to release their debut full length, which will be titled No World, on February 19 via 4AD, who also put out their EP. The first taste of that album, "5 days," is an ambient R&B cut that fits right in with How to Dress Well, Autre Ne Veut, and d'Eon. You can download the track above or watch a visualizer it below. The tracklist is below too.

Inc. will be playing a release show in NYC the day the album comes out (2/19) at Le Poisson Rouge with 4AD labelmate Zomby, Teengirl Fantasy collaborator Kelela (who plays the same venue five days earlier with Teengirl Fantasy and Laurel Halo), and Total Freedom. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Video and album tracklist below...

Nite Jewel at LPR in August (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Nite Jewel

Nite Jewel (aka Ramona Gonazalez) is a bit of a musical shapeshifter, having previously recorded lo-fi experimental pieces, performed with Linda Perhacs (along with Julia Holter), and performed a Kraftwerk album in its entirety, among other things. Just recently, she recorded a piano cover of Stevie Wonder's "Visions," which you can watch a video of below.

But on this year's One Second of Love, Ramona went for more of an overtly pop approach than her earlier work, and that interest comes across pretty strongly in her top ten songs of 2012 list, which you can check out below. Half of the list is made up of this year's big rap/R&B faves, and it also includes collaborator Julia Holter, Zebra Katz (whose video we just posted), and more.

Check out her full list and the "Visions" video below...

LA electronic duo Inc. (formerly Teen Inc.) should have their debut album for 4AD out sometime next year, but you can get an early taste of what they're up to much sooner when they play an NYC show on Saturday, November 17 at Steel Drums (35 Beadel Street, Brooklyn). Tickets are on sale now.

Making the evening much more interesting is a special performance from Sky Ferreira with Dev Hynes of Blood Orange (who we spotted watching Sky's set during one of our CMJ-week day parties), meaning they'll be performing together. As you may know, Dev co-produced Sky's "Everything is Embarrassing," and performed a rendition of it himself when he opened for Grimes at Music Hall of Williamsburg recently (video of that is below). We're told they're building "actual stage sets" for both Inc. and Sky/Dev's sets so "expect theatrics." Opening the show will be a set from Physical Therapy.

Sky will also be performing, sans-Dev, at two NYC shows later in the month.

Flyer for the Inc. show and the Dev Hynes video are below.

Zomby @ Glasslands

Prince Rama, despite touring with them and also playing CMJ, are not opening the previously discussed Gang Gang Dance show at Bowery Ballroom on 10/22, but some other more exciting acts are opening what is looking like a 4AD showcase. The lineup as of now is Gang Gang Dance, Inc, and Zomby! At least one more act will be announced too (hmm, Joker will be in town). Tickets are still on sale, or get in with your CMJ badge.

Zomby, despite the Guy Fawkes mask he sports, has not made any appearances at Occupy Wall Street so far (that we know of) (like Jeff Mangum did), but he did make a rare appearance in NYC at Glasslands on October 1st...

"At nearly 2 a.m. on Sunday morning, U.K. dubstep womperkind Zomby is onstage, but he is not making any noise. "We've waited years for this, dude, years," calls one fan as another boos. And indeed, the crowd who attended Zomby's set at Glasslands had been waiting years to see it, as that night marked Zomby's second appearance in New York since entering the bassosphere in 2007, and the first one [wasn't] open to the public. Now, after years of consuming his releases from across the pond and hours of slogging through jam band opening acts and faceless DJs that night, Zomby was onstage and silent as a stupid dead lamb who deserved to die for making everyone wait so unbelievably, mind-numbingly long. "Where's the music?" demands another fan. When the first note trembles through the venue and the crowd unleashes a collective noise of assent, all is forgiven. Zomby, that diva bastard, is worth the wait." [CMJ]

DOWNLOAD: Inc. - "Swear" (MP3)
DOWNLOAD: Inc. - "Millionairess" (MP3)


LA electronic duo Inc. (formerly Teen Inc.) released their debut EP 3 this past July via 4AD. The duo is made up of brothers Andrew and Daniel Aged, who, according to 4AD, "spent several years playing, recording and touring with Elton John, Pharrell Williams, Beck, Cee-Lo, amongst others" before forming Inc. On their EP, the brothers have crafted three tracks of downtempo R&B indebted to the LA beat scene with soulful reverb-coated falsettos. You can stream the entire EP below and grab two of its tracks above.

Inc. will play NYC on September 9 at Santos Party House with SFV Acid, Mykki Blanco, and Physical Therapy (DJ) and Brooklyn the next day at The Morgan (9/10). Tickets are on sale now for the Santos show. More details will probably emerge on the Morgan show after the RockYard show this Saturday (9/3) with Pictureplane, White Hills, The Psychic Paramount, Wise Blood, and Realness. According to Inc.'s site, more shows TBD.

Physical Therapy also DJs Warm Up on September 10 as the make up date for last Saturday's cancellation with Tanlines and Teengirl Fantasy.

All dates, a flier, and EP stream below...
