Welcome back to The Pit’s Favorite Riffs, where we share five new killer metal songs that have recently come out and that we love! Here are the metal songs we highlighted from last week!
As always, our goal with this feature is to shine a light on more underground metal bands. This week, we are bringing you a nice variety of black metal, doom metal, and more.
Mother of Graves – “Tears Like Wine”
Perhaps one of the best bands to be listening to for this time of year, Mother of Graves offers an incredible presence of death-doom. Providing listeners with melancholic instrumentation – involving deep bass and beautiful sounding melodies – tracks such as “Tears Like Wine” have the power to grip audiences with overwhelming emotion.
Daeva – “Polluting the Sanctuary (Revolutions Against Faith)”
On the flipside, how about some thrashing black metal? Daeva has every intention of devastating your eardrums, and songs like “Polluting the Sanctuary (Revolutions Against Faith)” do just that. The onslaught of shredding instrumentation will hook you from the start, guiding you on a journey of exhilarating chaos.
Oozing Wound – “The Good Times (I Don’t Miss ‘Em)”
Blending elements of thrash, punk, and grunge, Chicago’s Oozing Wound will always catch you by surprise. With a new album on the way next year, the band recently released “The Good Times (I Don’t Miss ‘Em),” which offers a killer grunge tone (with an added extra punch).
Imprecation – “Reborn in Fire”
Some people like to relax to lo-fi tunes or upbeat pop music, but we really enjoy the bliss of “relentless death metal” – which is something we get from the guys in Imprecation. There’s an oppressive death metal atmosphere to the band’s music, which can be heard in songs like “Reborn in Fire.”
Nostalghia – “Rêverie”
While very far from the cheeriest music you will hear, the work of Nostalghia is truly incredible. This is black metal metal that is deeply melancholic sounding; while the thrashing instrumentation does provide a flow that may get folks pumped up, this is music that focuses more on exploring dark emotions.
Of course, this is but a small taste of the many awesome metal releases that are out today. What are some new metal songs/albums that you are listening to now or plan to check out over the course of this weekend?
