I had to skip Canto yesterday to set up my new, and slightly less mediocre, sound system. Priorities!

CANTO: Dethklok, The Ocean, Kataklysm, and More

The Ocean

There is a reasonable chance this is my last full working week of 2019. Whoa.

  • A total ICYMI moment, Dethklok performed live for the first time in five years at this past weekend’s Adult Swim Fest out in LA. Here is some footage if you’re interested.
  • Hey you guys, Mötley Crüe is back. Remember back in 2015 when they signed a cessation of touring agreement? To be honest, I 100% do not. But apparently it didn’t matter anyway! Moving on…
  • Hey you guy’s again, The Ocean are almost ready to drop Phanerozoic IIYou know what this means right? MOAR FOSSILS. It sounds like it should be out sometime next year and I couldn’t be more excited.
  • Kataklysm dropped a new lyric video for “The Last Breath I’ll Take Is Yours”. That track is from 2018’s Meditations and this video was released in anticipation of their upcoming tour dates in Europe.

CANTO: Enslaved, Deathwhite, Woorms, and More

 

enslaved.2.17.18.56

Boston tomorrow. Lots of things to share tonight.

  • I caught this late last night, so I obviously need to share it today. Migration Fest 2020 details. The Gilead/20 Buck Spin festival dropped the first round of bands for next year, and highlights include Falls of Rauros, Yellow Eyes, False, and Vastum. If you follow either of these labels, those names won’t surprise you. But that doesn’t make it any less exciting!
  • Deathwhite has revealed that their next album, titled Grave Image, will be out on January 31st through Season Of Mist. I really enjoyed their debut, and if the first single from this effort is any indication, we could be in for another tremendous listen in a couple more months.
  • More album updates. Remember that killer album from Woorms that dropped just this past January, titled Slake? Well, we get even more Woorms this coming March. Twitching, as Prey will be released through The Hospital and Sludgelord Records. Here’s a new track, called “Silence and the Saints”. Pretty sure the album name in the caption is wrong but what are ya gonna do?
  • In case anyone needed an Enslaved update, I’m happy to report that they have re-signed with Nuclear Blast. They’ve been working together for about a decade, with excellent results I might add, so this is a good thing. With the announcement, the band also dropped a music video for “What Else Is There”. That particular number is a cover of the Röyksopp song and features as a bonus track on E.

CANTO: Fleshgod Apocalypse, Khôrada, Lunar, and More

khorada

Great. Now I have to reintegrate with society. Ugh.

  • Fleshgod Apocalypse dropped some exciting news today. The Italian symphonic death metallers are returning to North America in 2020 with support from The Agonist. But wait, there’s more! They’re bringing a classical string quartet with them! That’s certainly going to take their live show to another level… not that it isn’t ridiculous (in a good way) already.
  • Let’s add another reason why I need to be at the LA version of Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer festival, yeah? Prosthetic Records is teaming up with Decibel (duh) and Metal Monkey Brewing to release the “Hops of No Light” double IPA. It will be the official beer of the festival, which is ambitious. Because it’s a double IPA. And those murder (in a good way). I would know, I’m drinking a Heady Topper right now.
  • So this is a wicked bummer because I super enjoyed the debut album (see also: only album) from Khôrada, but it appears that project ended as quickly as it started. It was a very quiet announcement, with a couple members dropping info on the socials and whatnot. I’m not going to direct more people in that direction because that’s always a tired game, but here’s the link to the Metal Archives page if you need visual confirmation of some kind.
  • Not really much along the lines of new videos today, so here’s an animated clip for Lunar’s track “Comfort”. Prog metal on a Tuesday, why not? Their latest album, Eidolon, dropped last Friday through Divebomb records.
