Donuts & CANTO: Iced Earth, Devin Townsend, Mike IX Williams and more!

April 10, 2017

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from over the weekend:

    • As per usual, a whole bunch of bands dropped new albums on Friday, including ExtremityValborg and others. Check out Josh’s recap for the full list.
    • Iced Earth revealed the cover art for their upcoming album, Incorruptible, which drops June 16 on Century Media. Am I the only one that looked at this and thought of Theon vs. Ramsay on Game of Thrones?
    • Devin Townsend says he might be done with the “Devin Townsend Project” sound. Which might not be the worst thing in the world, seeing as he’s already past the point of ripping off Usher and Dead or Alive with that sound. (Not that I don’t love those ripoffs, just sayin’)
    • After a months-long ordeal with a liver transplant, Eyehategod frontman Mike IX Williams says he’s feeling great once again. That’s fantastic news. No snark here.
    • If you were into their new album, Crossover Ministry, you’ll be pleased to learn that Iron Reagan will have a new song, “Dark Days Ahead,” included on the new anti-Trump compilation, Our First 100 Days. If you weren’t, you’ll probably be neutral on this news.
    • The Sword will be releasing a live album, because that’s definitely something we need.
    • According to drummer Ben Koller’s InstagramConverge will be hitting the studio soon. That’s never a bad thing.
    • And finally, The Obsessed have a new video out for their song, “Sacred.” Check it out below:

    The band’s new album, also called Sacred, came out this past Friday. (Check out Chris’s review here.) Anyway, that’ll do it for now — check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!

    Keep it heavy,
    Dan
