CANTO: Khemmis, Epica, Thy Art is Murder, and More

So I was wrong about the whole week tapering off thing…

CANTO: Sólstafir, Like Moths to Flames, Veil of Maya, and More

This week is starting to taper off, and I’m really excited about it.

  • So this sounds really freaking cool. Sólstafir and Vreid are teaming up for a very unique concert stream, scheduled for October 15th and taking place on the mountaintops of Iceland and Norway. It’s scheduled for 3:00 PM EST, and you can tune in here.
  • This is a Europe thing I can’t participate in, but for those that can… I’m jealous. Arcturus and Iotunn have a run of shows planned in January and February of next year. Having seen Arcturus live once before, I would love to do that again someday in a not-MDF setting.
  • Monuments released the first single off of their upcoming new album, the name of which either does not exist yet or I simply can’t find. Anyway, that will be out sometime in 2022, and the clip for “Lavos” can be seen here.
  • Like Moths to Flames have announced a new EP, Pure Like Porcelain, which will be out on November 5th through UNFD. Check out the new track, “The Preservation of Hate”, right here.
  • And we’ll wrap up with the new video from Veil of Maya for “Outrun”. That new single is available through Sumerian Records. They’re also on tour throughout October, if you’re interested in that.

CANTO: Blood Incantation, Primitive Man, Aquilus, and More

Anybody else super happy about the Facebook outage yesterday?

  • There is quite the tour planned for December, featuring the likes of Primitive Man and Blood Incantation. Furthermore, support will be provided by Withered, among others, on select dates. This is not a show to be missed.
  • For those on the West Coast, Immortal Guardian has a brief run of shows in November with Sifting. Not gonna lie, they sure are covering a decent amount of ground over those six dates.
  • Solar Cross, the progressive metal project featuring Omnium Gatherum alumni, are releasing their debut on November 19th. Echoes Of The Eternal Word will be out through Transcending Records, and you can check out a visualizer for “Bloodstreams” here.
  • Borknagar are joining the Devastation on the Nation tour in 2022, which kicks off on April 21st and features the likes of Rotting Christ, Wolfheart, and More. Tickets can be purchased here.
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Aquilus for “Into Wooded Hollows”. That’s the second track taken from the sophomore album, Bellum I, which drops on December 3rd through Blood Music.

CANTO: Hypocrisy, Trivium, Mastodon, and More

I was going to skip this today, but then I saw a lot of stuff happening, so I guess I’m not skipping it now.

  • We can start with Hypocrisy, who released another new track from Worship. Check out the clip for “Dead World” right here. That album drops on November 26th through Nuclear Blast and I am really fucking excited about it.
  • I think these are all going to be new singles and/or videos, and you’re going to need to deal with that. Next up is Massacre, who unveiled this gnarly clip for “The Whisperer In Darkness”. Resurgence is out on October 22nd, also through Nuclear Blast.
  • So if Matt Heafy calling out MGK was for any kind of publicity, it worked. (Side note: I don’t actually think it was.) Here’s the new music video from Trivium for “The Phalanx”. The Court of the Dragon is somehow out next Friday already, through Roadrunner. That’s cool.
  • If you live out in California, you’ll get a chance to see the Harm’s Way running man in person in November. They’re joining Stick To Your Guns for a trio of shows from the 18th to the 20th. Those tickets went on sale today, casual FYI.
  • Let’s toss in a new video from Sarke, for “Beheading of the Circus Director”. That’s the second single from Allsighr, which is out on November 5th through Soulseller Records. That album is really, really enjoyable, by the way.
  • And it’s only right that we close with the new video from Mastodon for “Teardrinker”. Hushed & Grim drops on October 29th… another one that I’m really fucking excited about.

CANTO: Baroness, Immortal Bird, Archspire, and More

Lantlos - Wildhund

After skipping yesterday, I’ll do my best to catch up today. No I won’t.

  • I should at least include the new Baroness tour announcement, which will be a by-request tour throughout the United States. You can vote for your 10 favorite songs (out of a list of 80) with the purchase of a ticket. They go on sale Friday at this location. Well, not that exact location, but you know what I mean.
  • Immortal Bird has a brief run of shows coming up with Witching in parts of the right coast in late November and early December. If you happen to be in one of the five cities they hit on they trip, you need to make this happen.
  • Mortiferum has a new album dropping on November 5th through Profound Lore, titled Preserved In Torment, and today they unveiled a new track from that record. Give “Exhumed From Mortal Spheres” a listen.
  • And then we’ll wrap up the day (and maybe week) with a couple new videos. First we have Archspire, who shared a new video for “Drone Corpse Aviator”. That, of course, is taken from Bleed the Future, which is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
  • We’ll close with Lantlos. The clip below is for “LOWBREATHHIFEELLOWLIFEHIHOPES”, which I definitely just copied and pasted. It’s from the limited edition of Wildhund, which is available through Prophecy Productions.
