CANTO: Origin, Yob, Hexvessel, and More

Yob.4.3.19.41

Why doesn’t it feel like the weekend?

  • Couple tours to throw at you today. The first features Origin, who will be cruising around North America with Beneath The Massacre, Wake, and Defeated Sanity. Those dates run through March and early April.
  • The next tour comes from Yob, who not only announced some west coast and European dates in March and May, but also an appearance at Fire In The Mountains. Man, really wish I could go this year. Maybe 2021.
  • Hexvessel dropped the first single from their upcoming album. Kindred isn’t out until March 20th (on Svart Records), but “Demian” can be streamed right now.
  • Lastly, because this seems like a fun thing for a Friday, here is a new video from Macabre for “The Ted Bundy Song”. For those that may not remember, that was a track from 1993’s Sinister Slaughter. Their entire discography is now available digitally, which is why they are celebrating with this throwback. Fun!

CANTO: In This Moment, 1349, Envy, and More

1349

I worked in Boston today. Therefore, I am tired.

  • In This Moment have announced their seventh album, Mother, will be out on March 27th via Roadrunner/Atlantic. A video for the first single, “The In-Between” is available now. Upcoming tour dates, as well.
  • A whole bunch of videos today that I’m going to share because time is short. The first comes from Envy, for “A Faint New World”. I’ve had a chance to listen to The Fallen Crimson (out of February 7th through Pelagic Records), and it is awesome.
  • The next one comes from German thrash group Surgical Strike. Their debut, titled Part of a Sick World, is out this coming Friday on Metalville Records. Anyway, here is the video for “Not In This Life.”
  • Lastly, we have 1349‘s video for “Through Eyes of Stone”. The Infernal Pathway was released last October and if you weren’t already aware… it’s quite good.

A Tuesday that feels like Monday even though it truly is a Tuesday is a very weird mental situation.
