Weekly Release Wednesday? (5/18/22)



So it’s not Tuesday, but you’re getting your new music roundup anyway. I’m still trying to work my way through all the stuff form last week, so it falls on you all to find the actually good shit this time around. We’ve got one pick that’s basically a given, but let us know what else you’re jamming in the comments.

Sadistic Ritual – The Enigma, Boundless (Prosthetic Records) [Thrash]

Sadistic Ritual continues to be one of my favorite thrash bands in the modern scene. Though the songs presented so far are of a more mid-tempo feel than the frantic pace of Edge of the Knife and Visionaire of Death, they more than make up for it in the raw evil feel of the tunes. I am hoping for some songs with a little more complex fretwork, but even if they’re not present, the menacing vibe of the album so far is shaping up to be a compelling listen. 5/20/22 (Spear)
