CANTO: Rivers of Nihil, I Am, Catalyst, and More

Rivers of Nihil


Mondays don’t tend to be particularly interesting, but let’s see what I can find…

  • As part of their extensive North American tour supporting The Contortionist, Rivers of Nihil have also worked in eight headlining dates spread through September and October. They’ll still be performing The Work in full, but with a special encore.
  • If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Texas death/thrash outfit I Am yet, here’s another opportunity to do so. They’re streaming a new video for “Surrender to the Blade” over at Decibel, a track taken from Eternal Steel. That album is set for a September 9th release through MNRK Heavy.
  • Moving to the technical side of death metal, Catalyst are preparing an October release for their second album. A Different Painting For A New World will be out through Non Serviam Records, and I recommend pre-ordering that one here.
  • And we’re rounding things out with some black metal. Skare are releasing their self-titled debut on vinyl through Amor Fati Productions on September 12th. Naturally, we have a track from that album below. Give “Threshold Into Death” a listen right now.

CANTO: Amon Amarth, Tankard, Stratovarius, and More


Hey! The Bundesliga is back! And so is the Premier League. Weekend mornings just got marginally more enjoyable.

CANTO: Fallujah, Malevolence, Choke, and More


Yeah, I’m not gonna lie, the heat is approaching a suffocating level at this point.

  • We’ll lead off this Thursday with some Fallujah, specifically referring to the latest, and final, single from Empyrean. Check out “Soulbreaker” here, and get ready for the release of that album on September 9th through Nuclear Blast.
  • We’ll jump over to At The Gates next, who unveiled a music video for “Garden Of Cyrus”. That’s a track taken from The Nightmare of Being, which dropped last year through Century Media. Oh, and if you’re across the pond, they’re doing a killer run of shows with In Flames closer to the end of the year.
  • Want some death grind in your Thursday playlist? Check out the latest from Choke. They have a new EP dropping through Translation Loss titled Desiphon, and a video for “Lust For Death” is streaming over at Metal Injection if you want to give them a click.
  • And we’ll jump back to Nuclear Blast to close things out. Below is the new video from Malevolence for “Higher Place”. Malicious Intent is out now, and can be purchased here. They also have a ton of tour dates coming up, but you’ll have to seek those details out on your own.

CANTO: Black Anvil, Lorna Shore, Ingested, and More


Yep, it’s official. My head and heart are still very much in Wyoming.

  • Leading off with some live dates, we have Lorna Shore hitting the road for the “The Pain Remains Tour” with support from Aborted, Ingested, and more. Those dates are in October and November, with VIP packages going on sale tomorrow, and the usual general admission stuff on Friday.
  • Speaking of Ingested, they also have a new album dropping on November 4th through Metal Blade titled Ashes Lie Still. Check out the music video for “Shadows in Time” right here.
  • Belphegor videos are usually something to behold, and this new one for “The Devils” certainly falls into that category. That is, of course, the title-track from their latest album, which is out now through Nuclear Blast.
  • We’ve waited quite some time for new stuff from Black Anvil, and today we finally have it. So that’s how we’ll end our day. Check out the clip for “Castrum Doloris” below, the first sampling from Regenesis. That album is slated for a November 4th through Season of Mist. They’re also joining Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, and Dark Funeral on the road towards the end of the year, so those dates are worth checking out as well.
