Iggy Pop has confirmed the title and release date of his new album: Free, the first new Iggy Pop album since 2016’s Post Pop Depression, will be released September 6 on Loma Vista/Caroline International
Iggy has said on the process of the album the following:
“This is an album in which other artists speak for me, but I lend my voice…By the end of the tours following Post Pop Depression, I felt sure that I had rid myself of the problem of chronic insecurity that had dogged my life and career for too long. But I also felt drained. And I felt like I wanted to put on shades, turn my back, and walk away. I wanted to be free. I know that’s an illusion, and that freedom is only something you feel, but I have lived my life thus far in the belief that that feeling is all that is worth pursuing; all that you need – not happiness or love necessarily, but the feeling of being free. So this album just kind of happened to me, and I let it happen.”
The CD contains the album and the Blu-ray features the album in hi resolution stereo & 5.1 audio (96/24 5.1 LPCM & DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1), offering audiophiles a listening experience second to none. It also features seven additional tracks including alternative & radio mixes plus the beautiful solo version of ‘Routine’ with Ninet Tayeb on vocals. The Lasse Hoile Studio Documentary & studio sessions photo gallery complete the Blu-ray. It is presented in digipack packaging.

Danish blackgaze powerhouse MØL have released a new documentary style video for their track ‘Sundrowned’, taken from the recent re-release of their first two EPs I / II on 7th June 2019 via Holy Roar Records.
Egotism, Arrogance, Hypocrisy, Separation, Bitter truth and a mouth of gold to deliver it. Archetypes constituting a heavy mosaic that proves frail when the repercussions start to weigh in.
MMMΔ’s new work EGOISMO is making its way to the surface one year exactly after the celebrated OST for Lukas Feigelfeld’s medieval horror film Hagazussa. Tremors, chants, otherworldly strings and infrasound continue to dominate the soundscape, this time however a faint light flickers in the horizon.
EGOISMO is MMMΔ’s 11th album and marks yet another painstaking step on the endless path to consonance that the group pursues with ascetic discipline for the last ten years.
EGOISMO is released on 13th September via Antifrost records.
Pharmakon announces new album Devour for 30th August release via Sacred Bones – listen to new track
Artist Statement: “Devour” uses self-cannibalization as allegory for the self-destructive nature of humans; on cellular, individual, societal and species-wide scales. In our cells, our minds, our politics and our species, humans are self-destructing. But this behavior does not happen in a vacuum. It is an instinctive inward response to a world of increasing outward violence, greed, and oppression. Turning these wounds toward ourselves can be seen as an attempt at “balancing feedback”, within a never-ending positive feedback loop of cause and effect. With this view, the blame is placed not within the individual, but with the world they must contend with, and a society that is designed to fail them – to keep them gnashing and wailing, inflicted with an all-devouring hunger that inevitably turns in on the self. Those that pit them against each other grin from the sidelines, bellies full. Those who see beyond the veil need to obscure the horrid sight by any means necessary, but respite is always brief- nothing can dampen the glare from behind the veil. This album is dedicated to all who were lost to their own demise, all who have been institutionalized; whether in prison, psychiatric facilities, or drug rehabilitation. It is for all those ostracized by and isolated from a totality which chews them up alive in a self-cannibalizing caste system. Here, where martyrs, slaves, and pharmakos are not eradicated, but simply called by another name. “ABOUT THE SHALLOWNESS OF SANITY”… To be well adjusted in this system is to be oblivious and unfeeling. This is for the rest of us, who understand that chaos, madness, pain and even self-destruction are natural and inevitable responses to an unjust and disgusting world of our own making.

Lacuna Coil have announced that their new album will be released on October 11th via Century Media Records and will be titled Black Anima!
“Black Anima is all of us. It’s you and it’s me, it’s everything we hide and fiercely expose to a world that’s halfway asleep. It is the fogged mirror we are peering into searching for the truth. It’s sacrifice and pain, it’s justice and fear, it’s fury and revenge, it’s past and future…. Human beings in the magnificence of a disturbing ambiguity. The black core that balances it all… as without darkness light would never exist. We proudly present to you our new work and can’t wait to welcome you in our embrace. We are the Anima.” – Cristina Scabbia, LACUNA COIL.
