Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of October 12th, 2018.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff and/or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the artwork (if we remember…) so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


Featured Release

Allelic: The Smoke of Atavistic Fires
Genre: Black Metal/Folk
Label: The Green Man

Created by one of this site’s very own users, lalchimiste, The Smoke of Atavistic Fires is a metal/folk album worthy of high acclaim.  With full, rich sounding textures and a seamless blend of harrowing black metal and lush folk, this debut record ensures that Allelic will become a name you should know.  This isn’t your typical low-budget indie metal project — brace yourself for something more on par with Agalloch or Opeth.  Yeah, it’s really that good.  You can stream the LP in its entirety here.

The new Young the Giant record comes out today as well. Their last release didn't do much for me but I'll check it out. I'll spin Basement abd definitely Allelic.

I don't want to say it but the Allelic record, on the first two listens, didn't grab me the way I was hoping it would. It reminds me of the Night Verses record in a way. While it's technically brilliant, I can't really find a definitive structure to really grab hold of.
