Blackened death/thrash unit Voidhanger have contributed 3 brand new slices of brutality to an upcoming split with fellow miscreants Witchmaster. The collaboration is called Razing the Shrines of Optimism and it hit the streets in December via the Third Eye Temple label.

We here at Geeks of Doom are proud to be able to present to you, on this Black Metal Friday, an exclusive stream of the closing track of Voidhanger’s side of the album. This is “Through the Holocaust of Optimism.” Crank it up and enjoy.

Black Metal Friday: Forteresse ‘Thèmes Pour la Rébellion’ (Full Album)
  |  @   |  

I don’t usually feature entire albums for Black Metal Friday, but Forteresse‘s Thèmes Pour la Rébellion is so good throughout that I couldn’t pick just one track to share with you. It is a towering work of art that should be enjoyed as a whole, so that’s what I’m giving you.

Thèmes Pour la Rébellion is the Quebec band’s fifth full length album since their beginning in 2006. The record is already landing on many critics “Best of 2016 so far” lists. It’s definitely in the running for my top black metal album of the year. I urge you to check it out below.

Black Metal Friday: Skeletonwitch “Red Death, White Light”
  |  @   |  

When Ohio blackened thrash legends Skeletonwitch parted ways with their iconic singer Chance Garnette in 2014, many fans (myself included) worried that the band was losing the element that made them so special. Now almost two years later, our concerns are being put to rest as we get our first listen to the advanced tracks from Skeltonwitch’s upcoming EP The Apothic Gloom.

The new offering will be released August 19, 2016 via Prosthetic Records, and features new vocalist Adam Clemans, formerly of Wolvhammer. Clemans’ vocal style meshes nicely with Skeletonwitch and from what I’m hearing so far, is not a radical departure from his predecessor. Judge for yourself as this week’s Black Metal Friday track is the freshly released seven minute epic titled “Red Death, White Light.” Give it a listen here below and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Black Metal Friday: Scour “Tear Gas”
  |  @   |  

When former Pantera and current Down and Superjoint frontman Phil Anselmo isn’t busy apologizing for being a closet racist, he actually manages to crank out an astounding amount of high quality music. There was an incident earlier this year where the singer gave a Nazi salute and uttered the phrase “white power” onstage at Dimebash, an annual tribute to slain Pantera guitarist “˜Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott. Anselmo apologized profusely and said that he understood that he needed to change his ways. However, it was very recently discovered that he had just subscribed to a white power channel on YouTube.

While we at GoD certainly don’t condone or forgive Anselmo’s behavior, it doesn’t negate the significance of his contributions to the metal world over the last 3 decades. His latest project may just be his most intriguing outing yet. Scour is a new Anselmo-fronted black metal project, and you can check out a new track from them below.

Black Metal Friday: Abbath “Winterbane”
  |  @   |  

Unless you are a new reader of this column (and “welcome” if you are), you are keenly aware of my affection for former Immortal frontman Abbath and his new eponymous band. I recently gave the new band’s debut album a score of 9.5 out of 10. You can read the full review at this location.

So, when Abbath releases a new video it’s pretty much a shoe-in to be my Black Metal Friday track of the week. And so it is this week with the just released fourth video from the album. The song is called “Winterbane” and it is one of the many highlights of the spectacular self titled outing. If you have not done so already, I implore you to pick up a copy of the record which is simply titled Abbath.

If you need further convincing, crank up the video for “Winterbane” right here below and just try not to bang your head. Go on… I dare you!
