If there’s a silver lining thus far into 2022 it’s that at least we don’t have to wait too long for some good old-fashioned spine-busting metal. We’re barely out of January and we already have fresh releases from the likes of Enterprise Earth, Shadow of Intent and Fit for an Autopsy. Yes, I am aware that Omicron is all the rage back home and some folks are still under lockdown but believe me new riffs and blast beats go a long way in lifting one’s spirits.
Extreme metallers Fit For An Autopsy — Joseph Badolato [vocals], Patrick Sheridan [guitar], Timothy Howley [guitar], Will Putney [guitar], Peter Blue Spinazola [bass], and Josean Orta Martinez [drums] will drop their sixth album Oh What the Future Holds on January 14 via Nuclear Blast Records. Pre-orders are live at the link below. The band has shared the video for “Two Towers.” Watch it now!
Progressive Deathcore band Enterprise Earth will drop a new album, The Chosen, via MNRK Heavy on January 14th 2022. The band recently dropped a series of singles and videos, including a visualizer for the brutal “Legends Never Die.” Pre-orders are live for the album at the link below. You can also catch the band opening for Fit For An Autopsy this winter as well.
