Adult Swim has been an excellent source of metal over the years, and this Friday they’ll be adding fifteen more tracks to their résumé via their compilation Metal Swim 2. The compilation will feature new tracks from Alien Weaponry, Akvan, Author & Punisher, Baroness, Botanist, Dark Castle, Dreadnought, Eyehategod, Kat Katz + Andy Gibbs from Thou, Nervosa, Oathbreaker, Sunn O))), The Body, Vile Creature, and Volahn, as well as kickass cover art by comic book creator Becky Cloonan (Batman, The Punisher, Southern Cross).
Check out a trailer for the compilation here, as well as the Cloonan-created artwork below. Metal Swim 2 was curated by Laura Sterritt, who had the following to say.
“The spirit of metal manifests for listeners in all kinds of ways: as an art form, as an emotional outlet, and just good ol’ fashioned fun. I was excited to curate this group of forerunners from metal’s wide swath of subgenres, so both longtime metalheads and newcomers alike could find something within that resonates with them.”
