Would it be possible to include Asia and Latin America in your updates, particularly Japan which is an important country for metal?

Also, I wonder if there's any interest in a similar listing for progressive rock or if it could be added to this one as well?

Thanks!

hello, first of all thanks for writing, weekly I already post the rankings of honk kong, malaysia, singapore and taiwan, in recent weeks I forgot japan but I will enter it; south america I do not know where to find the charts, if they exist :) usually I insert progressive rock bands when, according to my (modest) judgment, they present hard and heavy elements

Hi there and thanks for the reply! On the latest Japanese Oricon charts, Lovebites just entered at #21 (I didn't notice anything else but I only saw from 1 to 50 so maybe there are others?) and Aldious made it to # 17 on November 19 as well.

I'll be sure to send any prog bands I notice to you just in case they are of interest to anyone else too. I saw you listed Steven Wilson so I figured I would ask and I doubt too many prog fans are around here to warrant a separate thread :)

The South American charts I have seen were very spotty; there are iTunes charts and a few others. If I see anything of note, I will post it as well.

New & Noteworthy: December 21st, 2018: Basically Just Jon Schaffer’s Purgatory

Posted by D. Zachary Fehl on December 21, 2018

New & Noteworthy is a weekly column in which we highlight some of the newest rock and metal releases coming out each week. Fortunately for me December makes for short work, because that cold I mentioned getting over last week turned into the flu. So my week has been fantastic. Now this week brings us new music from Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer and Swallow the Sun, and that’s about it. You can check out the last week’s New & Noteworthy here for what all came out last Friday. Also be sure to follow us on Spotify to get this month’s New & Noteworthy Playlist, updated every Friday.

New Releases

Jon Schaffer’s Purgatory, Purgatory EP (Century Media)

Iced Earth guitarist Jon Schaffer has returned to his pre-Iced Earth roots, teaming up with his old band mates and taking up songs he wrote between 1985-87 for his band Purgatory. You can check our their lyric video for the song “In Your Dreams” here. Considering that one in The EP was produced and mixed by Schaffer and lead guitarist Jim Morris, and mastered by Zeuss. Will also be available on vinyl.

Swallow The Sun, Lumina Aurea EP (Century Media)

Finland’s Swallow the Sun is teasing their upcoming album When a Shadow is Forced Into The Light, due out in January, with the release of the single “Lumina Aurea.” The track clocks in at an epic 14 minutes, and will be released digitally and on vinyl as the full track and as an instrumental. It looks like it’s not getting a physical, US release so you may have to wait for it to be imported. RIP.

Vinyl Release

Melvins, Houdini (Music On Vinyl)
