CANTO: Paradise Lost, Wake, Darkest Hour, and More

Paradise Lost 2020

Had to take the last few days off due to travel and drunken shenanigans.

  • Paradise Lost have announced a streaming show, which will take place on November 5th. Tickets for the event can be purchased here, and as always, there are VIP options and some swag.
  • Wake just dropped a new EP yesterday titled Confluence. Give it a listen here, and maybe also buy one of those gorgeous physical copies, which will be released through Translation Loss Records.
  • Darkest Hour are performing a streaming event as well, with Misery Signals, on December 5th. Proceeds from the event will support struggling music venues, so make sure you scoop up a ticket here.
  • Finally, some fresh death metal out of Ukraine. Here is a new music video from Hell:on for “My Testament”, a track taken from their upcoming new album, Scythian Stamm, which drops on November 1st.

Receiving the Evcharist: False Gods and Smuttlabs’ Snaccident

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Hey all, happy Friday. I’m bringing this wonderful piece of content your way this week because I accidentally stumbled on some delicious local offerings recently that I felt the need to talk about. I’ve been listening to some new music as well… in between repeat listens of the latest from The Ocean and Enslaved. Obviously. Shall we quench our thirsts?

Time for a beer. Not this beer. A different beer.

CANTO: Alcest, GWAR, Enslaved, and More

If I listen to anything but The Ocean and Enslaved the rest of the year, it will be a freaking miracle.

  • In celebration of the album’s 10th anniversary, Alcest are reissuing Écailles De Lune on December 18th. You can pre-order it here, and I gotta say it looks absolutely stunning. Being my favorite Alcest album, I may need to jump on this.
  • And as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Scumdogs of the Universe, GWAR have announced a streaming event on October 30th. “Scumdogs XXX Live” should be quite the spectacle. Tickets can be acquired here.
  • Speaking of Enslaved, they have their sights set on some tour plans in 2021. If all works out, they will be hitting a number of European cities with Intronaut, Obsidian Kingdom, and Crown. I adore this band, and they deserve to tour. So I hope all this happens.
  • And lastly, a new video from All Souls for “Winds”, a track taken from End of the World, which just dropped a couple weeks ago.
