CANTO: Stormruler, Behemoth, Exhumed, and More

Last Canto until October? Last Canto until October (probably).

  • Gonna bookend this with a couple videos today, since you’ll miss me on Friday. First, we have the clip for “Versvs Christvs” from Behemoth. Opvs Contra Natvram is out now through Nuclear Blast, and I am officially late in listening to it. Maybe on my flight tomorrow night…
  • Exhumed are releasing To The Dead on October 21st through Relapse Records, and today they shared the latest offering from that album. Give “Carbonized” a watch and listen here, while you’re putting in those preorders of course.
  • Gospelheim shared the third and final single from Ritual & Repetition, ahead of its release on October 21st through Prophecy. Give “The Hall of the Unconsumed” a listen here.
  • I’m excited about the new Stormruler, so that’s the note I’ll leave you on for the next week and change. The video for “Internal Fulmination Of The Grand Deceivers” is below, the second single taken from Sacred Rites & Black Magic. That album drops on October 14th through Napalm Records.

CANTO: Lykotonon, Autopsy, City of Caterpillar, and More

Tapering is my favorite part of training.

  • Tchornobog and Abyssal are releasing a split on November 25th through Lupus Lounge. Excepts of both tracks can be heard in this teaser, and pre-order details can be found here.
  • We’ve got new Autopsy coming at the end of the month, and today they unveiled a video for “Knife Slice Axe Chop” to get us ready. The official release date of Morbidity Triumphant is September 30th, and that will be available through Peaceville.
  • City of Caterpillar are releasing their first album in 20 years, Mystic Sisters, on September 30th through Relapse Records, and today they shared a studio video for “Paranormaladies”. Additionally, be sure to catch them on the road this coming November.
  • We’re going to close with a highlight from FITM. Lykotonon, the dark industrial project featuring members of Stormkeep, Blood Incantation, and Wayfarer, are releasing their debut full-length on November 25th. Promethean Pathology will be available through Profound Lore, and “That Which Stares In Kind” can be heard below.

CANTO: Serj Tankian, Black Lava, Nytt Land, and More

Three more work days…

  • Looks like we have new material from Serj Tankian on the horizon. A new EP, titled Perplex Cities, will be out on October 21st through Serjical Strike. You can hear “Pop Imperialism” through an immersive AR experience here. And if you get confused, here’s a demo.
  • Italy’s Abhor are streaming Sex Sex Sex (Ceremonia Daemonis Antichristi) a few days ahead of the release date. Since this was one of my favorite black metal projects out of Italy for awhile, I’m taking a moment to share it. Here you go. It’s officially out on the 23rd through Iron Bonehead.
  • If you need a little dark folk in your Monday, check out Nytt Land. Ritual: Blood of the West, the new EP, will be out on November 18th through Napalm Records. “Dark Country. Ritual” is available for streaming here.
  • We’ll close out Monday with some blackened death metal in the form of Black Lava. The music video for “Eye of the Moon” is below, a track taken from Soul Furnace. That album is out on November 25th through Season of Mist.

CANTO: In Flames, Lacuna Coil, Defleshed, and More

In a complete RKO outta nowhere, the album I most anticipate this year might be Lorna Shore’s Pain Remains? Anyway…

CANTO: The Black Dahlia Murder, Lorna Shore, Woods of Desolation, and More

Routine chaos is basically my perpetual state of existence at this point.

  • The Black Dahlia Murder are forging ahead, following the passing of Trevor Strnad. On October 28th they’ll be performing at Saint Andrew’s Hall as a celebration of the life and legacy of the beloved vocalist, with Brian Eschbach behind the microphone. Joining them will be Plague Years and Darkest Hour, making for what will be a truly memorable event.
  • Atmospheric black metal project Woods of Desolation revealed that a new full-length, The Falling Tide, is set for a December 9th release through Season of Mist, their debut with the label. Give the title-track for that effort a listen here.
  • And then a couple Century Media happenings to round things out. Technical thrash group Vektor have signed on to a worldwide deal with the label, where they’ll release their fourth studio album at some point next year. We’ll stay tuned as that all unfolds.
  • And then a month out of the release date for Pain Remains, Lorna Shore revealed a video for “Pain Remains I: Dancing Like Flames”, and that’s how we’re going to end the day. As a reminder, that album will be available through Century Media.
