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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Moving in a different direction, dark neo-folk collective Vévaki shared a new music video for “Heimdalagaldr”. Their sophomore full-length, Fórnspeki, drops on October 28th through Season of Mist, their debut with the label.
Closing out, we have the next offering from Comalies XX. Lacuna Coil shared a new video for “Swamped XX”, which you can view below. As a reminder, that reimagined classic will be out on October 14th through Century Media.
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.
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.
