This week has been jammed with new music and news across the board, with new tracks from Enabler and KEN Mode as well as info (finally) on the debut album from Palms, the new band featuring ex-members of Isis, joined by Deftones’ Chino Moreno, who will be releasing their self-titled record on June 25th, through Mike Patton’s Ipecac Records. If you’ve read this blog down through the years then you might have guessed that Isis are (or were, whatever) one of my most beloved bands. Deftones, not so much. They’ll always be one of those bands I don’t understand the total adulation for, other than White Pony, no album has ever grabbed me, though I do, however, understand the uniqueness of Chino’s voice and mixing this in with the instrumentation of Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Clifford Meyer is certainly quite interesting. Chino uploaded a new song, ‘Tropics’ that was removed soon after, strangely, but here it is again. It could be gone by the time you read this though…
[EDIT: Yeah, it’s gone again]
While we’re on the topic of Season of Mist, the label has signed Australian prog metallers Ne Obliviscaris. You may remember that they released a stunning album last year. No? Let this jog your memory.
