Dragon Fire: Otep, Cauldron, Dew Scented, plus more

Dragon Fire is Slow Dragon Music’s brief news round-up, filled with chunks of fleshy goodness.

Ever pushing someone’s buttons, US outfit Otep have put out a lyric video for the revolutionary themed To The Gallows, from their upcoming Kult 45 album. We believe it may have irked a few Donald Trump supporters, judging by the YouTube comments section…


Old school Canadian metallers Cauldron are gearing up for the release of their fifth album, New Gods via Dissonance Productions, with promises to appeal to fans of previous release In Ruin.

Japanese metal-punks Suzisuzi have been streaming new album Microphone’s Counter Attack over at Noisey. This is absolutely perfect summer music. It’s demented, frantic, and fun. What more could you want? Oh, also, they like beer.


The utterly brutal Posthuman Abomination summon their debut album into being on June 8th, via Comatose Music. Titled Transcending Embodiment, this insane assault is far more intense than its moniker may suggest.


July 6th will see Metal Blade release the brand new 7″ single, The Doomsday Clock, from NWOBHM legends Satan.

Sad news for fans of German death/thrash unit Dew Scented, as they have decided to call it a day. The band say that the level of commitment they think DS deserves “simply isn’t possible anymore because of how life otherwise evolved throughout the years.” They’ll be wrapping up with a short string of live home country dates.
