So many artists, so little time. Each week we review a handful of new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we'd call "indie," and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, track premieres, and more all day. In these concertless times, that includes daily livestreams and live concert videos we love. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

SPIRIT ADRIFT - "ASTRAL LEVITATION"

Spirit Adrift recently released the lead single off their upcoming album Enlightened in Eternity (due 10/16 via 20 Buck Spin), and earlier this week they put out a "Supernaut" cover from the upcoming Vol. 4 tribute LP (which also features Thou, The Obsessed, Matt Pike, and more), and now they released the second single from the new album. It's called "Astral Levitation" and it finds them combining speedy hard rock fretwork with slower-paced melodic doom, and also finding them for a psychedelic passage, shredding solos, and more.

NAPALM DEATH - "A BELLYFUL OF SALT AND SPLEEN"

Napalm Death have shared the third single off their highly anticipated new album Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism (due 9/18 via Century Media), and so far each single has showed off a different side of the album. This one finds them in grimy industrial metal territory, almost closer to former Napalm Death member Justin Broadrick's band Godflesh than to classic ND. It's unsurprisingly killer.
