Not much in the way of visuals today… so I guess we’ll just end here.

CANTO: Sanctuary, Wayfarer, Immortal Bird, and More

sanctuary.3.23.18.116

Hey! I’m back!

  • Let’s start off with nothing even remotely new to this routine… a tour announcement! Sanctuary will be rolling through some North America dates with Ghost Ship Octavius as support. Dates are in July and August, and Joseph Michael is still on vocals. He did well on their last tour, so that last bit shouldn’t be much of a surprise.
  • This is a run of shows I’m slightly more excited about. Wayfarer have added some east coast dates to their 2019 plans, and that is tremendous news. They’ll be joined by Falls Of Rauros, another favorite of mine. They’ll be touring starting in May, but these specific shows will be in July.
  • Immortal Bird are also up to things. Their next full-length effort, titled Thrive On Neglect, will be out on July 5th through 20 Buck Spin. In conjunction with that announcement, you can taste the new title-track right now. Oh, and they also have some shows coming up next month.
  • Fleshgod Apocalypse have released a live video for “Healing Through War”. This clip was taken from their “An Evening In Perugia” show. A casual reminder that Veleno will be out on May 24th via Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Godsmack, Excalibur, Dio, and GosT

Ronnie James Dio

How long has it been, a week? Well, that’s about how long it has been since I’ve been home. Deal with it.

  • Godsmack are officially back on the road, and have announced additional dates today as well. But the real update here is the launch of Sully’s ‘Scars’ Foundation, which will raise awareness and funding for mental health.
  • This one is for Dan and anybody else obsessed with GosT. Here is a new single called “The Call of the Faithful”, which is taken from Skull 2019. As a reminder, that will be out on Century Media on May 3rd.
  • If you’re one of those people that’s interested in seeing that weird, and controversial, Dio hologram in person, this may be for you. The Dio Returns Tour 2019 will hit the U.S. with Tim “Ripper” Owens and Oni Logan as guest vocalists. I will not be there.
  •  The music video update at the top of my email list (literally, not figuratively) comes by way of Spain’s Excalibur. If you want some heavy metal in your life, check out this clip for “Las Hordas del Rock”.

CANTO: Khemmis, Ghost, Tronos, and More

khemmis.2.17.18.14

There is a very real chance this is the only Canto you see this week. None of me apologizes for that. Also, it’s April 1st… is any of this news even real?
