Weekly Releases (11/30/22)


Ah fuck, it’s new music time. Somehow nobody got the memo that you’re supposed to stop releasing albums after Thanksgiving so every music journalist can safely ignore the month of December for AOTY purposes, but here we are. Peep that list and be sure to let us know if any bands are upsetting your impending top 10s.

Ryth – Deceptor Creator (Independent) [Death Metal]

Bahrain’s Ryth sound mighty polished for a new band; I’m pretty impressed with this first album. It’s equal parts melody and ferocity, lightning shreds and knuckle-dragging riffs. The production is clean without sounding horribly overbearing either, and I like the tone for each of their instruments. Very solid debut. 12/1/22 (Spear)
