CANTO: Every Time I Die, Lesser Glow, …and Oceans, and More

lesserglow

Quiet day everywhere except in my mind.

  • It seems as though Every Time I Die has teased about half a minute of new music. If anyone has managed to form an opinion off of those brief seconds, the floor is all yours!
  • Not the most surprising thing, but Rocklahoma 2020 has been canceled. The event, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, made the announcement yesterday. Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, and Staind were the planned headliners.
  • Lesser Glow have a new album dropping on May 29th through Pelagic Records called Nullity. A track titled “The Great Imitator” is streaming now, and a pre-order link is available for you to take advantage of.
  • We’ll close with a new music video from …and Oceans for the track “Five of Swords”. Their next album, Cosmic World Mother, drops on May 8th through Season of Mist.

CANTO: Kvelertak, Fit For An Autopsy, Megadeth, and More

kvelertak

Week four has begun.

  • Kvelertak are the latest band (that I’ve paid attention to at least) to announce a live performance streamed via the interwebs. The show is scheduled for April 10th (this coming Friday) and will be available to view at this location.
  • Megadeth recently dropped a pre-order for a T-shirt bundle that comes with a mask, because of the all this COVID-19 stuff. A portion of the proceeds are going to relief efforts. Interestingly, I no longer see the item on the website. Did it sell out already? Hmm…
  • In case you missed this last Friday, Panopticon dropped a new EP titled Beast Rider to help support the musicians that have had it particularly challenging during the COVID-19 situation. If you haven’t snagged it yet, here’s your chance.
  • Fit For An Autopsy dropped a new single/video through Nuclear Blast. It’s called “Fear Tomorrow”, and to make your lives easy, it’s embedded for your viewing pleasure below.

tool 2019

I mean, nothing else to do these days, right?

  • So here’s a fun thing. Allegaeon dropped of a cover of Yes’ classic “Roundabout”. You can watch/listen to it here. And if you want a behind-the-scenes look at how it came to be, that’s available here.
  • Tool officially announced the very-much-assumed postponement of their 2020 shows that weren’t already, well, postponed. If you want or need a full list of those dates, here it is.
  • Carcass have announced that the release of their next album, Torn Arteries, will be delayed. It was originally planned for an August release through Nuclear Blast, and no new timeline has been established yet.
  • Let’s close with a new music video from Vader. This one is for “Into Oblivion”, which is taken from the upcoming new album, Solitude In Madness. That is out May 1st through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, Sylosis, and More

insomnium8.31.2

Reporting from the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

  • Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum have announced an exclusive live streamed concert that will take place on April 10th at 12:00 pm. Tickets are very affordable, so I encourage every single one of you to “attend” this. Personally, I can’t fucking wait.
  • Have some money to burn while hiding out in quarantine? How about Nameless Ghoul or Papa Nihil statues? These are expensive, but stunning, and are surely on every Ghost fan’s wish list.
  • Couple new videos to share today, and the first comes from Sylosis. This is a live clip of “Cycle of Suffering”, performed at their album release show in London earlier this year.
  • And secondly, we have a new video from Igorrr for “Downgrade Desert”. That track is taken from their recently released new album, Spirituality and Distortion, available through Metal Blade Records.

Slow day but let’s try and whip something up. And then I guess I’ll go to the mountains.

  • Devin Townsend is preparing for an enhanced released of 2019’s Empath. This release, titled Empath – The Ultimate Edition, will feature the original record as well as a couple Blu-Ray discs that feature bonus material, documentary footage, and more. And it will be out on June 5th.
  • Loviatar have a new album dropping on Friday (April 3rd) called Lightless through Prosthetic Records. If you’ve needed some doom in your life, you can get a sample of that record today through the new music video for “Horse In Thrall”.
  • Looks like Atreyu have released a song with M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) and Aaron Gillespie (Underoath). That’s interesting. The song is called “Super Hero”, and you can check out here if you feel so inclined.
  • Lastly, we’ll close with a new lyric video from Wednesday 13 for “The Hearse”. That is taken from the most recent album, Necrophaze, which is out now on Nuclear Blast. Enjoy.
