It's been an insanely stacked week for new music. We reviewed 25 of this week's albums, including Every Time I Die, Necrofier, Blackwater Holylight, and the hardcore-adjacent-but-not-actually-hardcore-at-all Angel Du$t, and you can also head to Invisible Oranges' Upcoming Metal Releases to read up on the new Dream Theater, Cradle of Filth, Worm, 1914, Apparition, Massacre, and more. On top of all that, we got new singles from Mastodon, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, 200 Stab Wounds, So Hideous, Kublai Khan, Silent Planet, No Bragging Rights, and more. Read on for all the metal, hardcore, and -adjacent songs we posted this week...

MASTODON - "SICKLE AND PEACE"

Mastodon have shared the third single from their upcoming David Bottrill-produced double album Hushed and Grim, and this one's pretty different for them. It's a 6-minute song that starts out funky and proggy before transitioning into more familiar sludge territory. Get the album on black double vinyl or pick up the Revolver collector's bundle, which features the album on limited clear vinyl and other cool stuff.

Finnish death-doomers Swallow The Sun have shared a new song off their upcoming album Moonflowers (get it on triple vinyl), and the band says, "Compared to the dark and mournful ‘Woven Into Sorrow’ – latest single release – ‘Enemy’ presents the heavier and more dramatic side of the album without seeming less sad and gloomy."

DEATH ANGEL - "WHERE THEY LAY" (LIVE)

Thrash vets Death Angel's new live album The Bastard Tracks features songs that were rarely played live. It was recorded on May 22 during a livestream and it comes out November 26 via Nuclear Blast. "'Where They Lay' is a prime example of a Death Angel Bastard track," said vocalist Mark Osegueda. "We have rarely played this song live and I'm guessing the last time we did was 2010! I love the release I get singing this song. Namely because the screaming bits I do are so cathartic!!!" It sounds great.

PAST FORMS - CTRL EP

Past Forms hail from Chicago (with ex-members of Cadence Fox, Argo Navis, and Nimitta), and they pull from their home city's long history of dizzying math rock and blend it with harsh screamo and discordant experimental rock, coming out with a mix that's totally nuts and a lot to take in but very worth it. Their debut EP CTRL is coming soon via their own Reader Advisor Records (vinyl) and Tomb Tree Tapes (cassette), but you can hear the whole thing now and read a track-by-track breakdown at IDIOTEQ.

MYRKUR - "RIVERS BLESSED" (DEMO)

Myrkur has released a somber new song, using only her voice and a harp. She says, "'Rivers Blessed' is written about my journey into motherhood, a path that by no means was easy but it changed my life and how I view the world forever. I wanted the song to have a strong feeling of winter, and therefor the harp is the only instrument, because its sound reminds me of falling snowflakes. The chorus is from an old Danish poem called ‘There is nothing in the world as silent as snow’ and it talks of the silent, pure and gentle new world you find after the snow has fallen, which feels like nature’s magic.'"
