Donuts & CANTO: Brujeria, Brendon Small, Full Terror Assault and more!

brujeria 2017

April 26, 2017

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

    • Leading off, Brujeria have announced a fall tour with, for some reason, Voodoo Glow Skulls. Whom, you may recall, aren’t even remotely metal. Either way, dates are here.

    • Feels like forever since we heard anything from Brendon Small — though a good part of that is Adult Swim’s fault. Well, good news, he’s working on a six-part comic book series based on his solo album, Galaktikon! Which is cool. Just wish we could get some resolution on the Metalocalypse saga.
    • The Full Terror Assault festival will be coming back for its third edition this September, and the announced lineup so far is…actually pretty decent? OverkillToxic HolocaustGoatwhoreRavenNucleus and a bunch more. Let’s hope they can keep ’em coming.
    • Guys, I can’t tell for sure, but…I don’t think the guys in Darkest Hour like Victory Records too much.
    • KMFDM have a nice few months coming up: an EP dropping in June, followed by tour dates in Europe and the U.S. from August through…just about Halloween. Good stuff.
    • Insomnium is coming back to the U.S. this fall! Technically they’re opening for some other bands, but I only list acts I care about here, so they can suck it. Woo, Finns!
  • And finally, Alestorm released a video for their new, self-titled song. Check it out below:

Did these guys always have harsh vocals or is this a new thing? I’m not the biggest Alestorm fan in the world — this song and this cover aside, at least — so pardon my ignorance. Either way, the band’s new album, No Grave but the Sea, comes out May 26 on Napalm Records. That’ll do it for now — check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!

Keep it heavy,
Dan
