Two weeks is up and we’re getting closer to those colder months now. There have been a great array of releases, birthdays have been celebrated and there are some song selections to honour someone in the metal community who passed away recently.
There have been some cracking album releases from Seven Spires, Apostolica, Brainstorm and Whyzdom so songs from each of those albums are on there. Leaves’ Eyes released a special edition of their latest album The Last Viking.
Single releases come from Mortemia, Temperance, Sabaton, U.D.O, Serious Black, Aephanemer, Anneke Van Giersbergen, HammerFall and Skillet. Ghost and The HU also cover songs from a classic Metallica album, it’s alongside a lot of other covers which is interesting. Majestica released a great tribute to those involved with bringing festivals and gigs to life, particularly during Covid times.
Wolf, Eleine, Blind Guardian and Gus G had their members celebrate birthdays within these two weeks. Ensiferum and Dark Tranquility announced a co-headliner tour so classics from them are on the list.
Note From Lotty: A few weeks ago, promoter Rich Ravenhill sadly passed away. He was a solid presence in the underground metal scene, particularly in Worthing, Brighton and surrounding areas. He was also a huge help to me from a press perspective and was always on hand if I had questions. His dedicated work for bands and infectious passion the scene will never be forgotten.
To honour him, I decided to place a few songs on this playlist; they are his personal favourites and from bands he has worked with. I would like to thank those I got in touch with about song choices and providing me with these options. Whenever you hear one of his favourite songs, a song from one of the bands he has worked with or both; raise your glass (or bottle or drinking horn) and rock horns to Rich.
Take care of yourselves first and foremost, see you on the next playlist.
