Upcoming metal releases: December 2009

Text by Cosmo Lee

Here is the list for December’s metal releases.

The end of the year is a wasteland for releases, though I look forward to debuts by Impetuous Ritual and Abraxas. Impetuous Ritual has connections to Portal and promises similar sickness. Abraxas is the new band of guitarist Makoto Mizoguchi (ex-Pyrexia and Internal Suffering, sometimes live bassist for Hate Eternal) and Monstrosity vocalist Mike Hrubovcak. They play straight-up, unapologetic brutal death metal. You can hear tracks from their upcoming EP here.

I’ve also filled out the releases list for the entire year. This damn near killed me. About 37 or so hours into this task, I realized that a complete list of this year’s releases would not only be impossible but also undesirable. Too much noise obscures the signal. So I’ve tried to capture the essentials, plus some trimmings. Most of the major releases should be there, but if anything is missing (and necessary) or incorrect, let me know in the comments box.

Hopefully this list will be handy in seeing what you’ve missed this year. I know I have a lot of catching up to do. I still haven’t heard the God Forbid, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, and Paradise Lost records. Higher priorities for me include Urfaust, The Ordher, and the Drawn and Quartered DVD. I also stumbled across a Megadeth EP of electronic remixes that might be so bad it’s good.

Finally, I discovered an Indonesian grindcore band with the best name ever: Onset of Serious Problems. Ain’t that the truth. I should never have attempted this list in the first place.
