Published Jul 03, 2012With the excitement of the long weekend behind us, it's as good a time as any to get caught up on some of the newest music hitting the shelves and the web this week. You can head to our Recently Reviewed section to read up on the latest releases, and to see which albums managed to score the Exclaim! stamp of approval. You can check out some of the highlights below.
First, death metal trio Nile return with their seventh full-length, At the Gate of Sethu, which earned an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week. The release sees the legendary Karl Sanders and company building upon their reputation for edgy tunes influenced by Egyptian history and mythology, and features plenty of their signature Middle Eastern flourishes.
In electronic releases, Moritz Von Oswald Trio offer up a four-track album of free-flowing, long-form compositions. Entitled Fetch, the record features plenty of collaborations and varied instrumentation.
Next up, supergroup of sorts Primate release their revamped debut, Draw Back a Stump, after nearly a year trying to get the grind- and hardcore-inflected album off the ground, while British doom three-piece Witchsorrow deliver their sophomore release, God Curse Us, which also garnered a Mark of Excellence.
And lastly, blues and country veteran Tom House teams up with producer Brock Zeman and comes up with a haunting 13th album, Winding Down the Road.
