CANTO: Einherjer, Deadguy, Creeping Death, and More

Creeping Death

Well today sure was weird, but at least I’m caught up on writing?

  • Einherjer, a name I haven’t seen in quite some time, have announced details surrounding their first live album. Norse And Dangerous (Live… From The Land Of Legends) is set for an August 5th release through Napalm Records, and a clip for “West Coast Groove” is available now.
  • Creeping Death have announced a North American headlining tour with 200 Stab Wounds, Tribal Gaze, and more. Those dates cover August 16th through September 18th, and you can find ticket information here.
  • Parkway Drive has marked a bit of a return with the new video for a track titled “Glitch”. It’s their first new material since 2018’s Reverence, so we’ll see where they take things from here.
  • We’ll close out with some new footage from Deadguy. Below is the clip for “Makeshift Atomsmasher”, taken from Buyer’s Remorse: Live From the Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest. That’s available exclusively through, well, Decibel Records. Alright, I gotta run!

The times… well, they certainly are a-changin’.

CANTO: Suicide Silence, Wayfarer, Death Bells, and More

I am legitimately proud of how much I crammed into this past weekend.

  • We’ll lead off with Suicide Silence, who have announced their return to Century Media Records. They released their first three full-length albums through the label, and it sound like new music is heading our way soon.
  • Hell yeah! An April Wayfarer tour! …That comes nowhere near me. Damnit. Well, if you happen to be on the western side of the United States in a couple months, much sure you carve out time for one of these shows. I’ll be jealous.
  • Death Bells released a new track today called “Passerby”. That release comes right before a handful of live dates, including time at Homesick Fest in California, which you can see here.
  • Looks like Dino Cazares will be joining Soulfly on their upcoming U.S. tour with Short Fuse and 200 Stab Wounds. Check out all the dates, and purchase tickets, here.
  • Yeah, I guess we can close with something symphonic. Check out the new animated video from Belle Morte for “Who are you”. Their debut full-length, Crime of Passion, is out through Wormholedeath.

CANTO: Soulfly, Der Weg einer Freiheit, Hegeroth, and More

Der Weg Einer Freiheit - Noktvrn

I am VERY tired… probably because of the bourbon.

  • Soulfly have announced a 2022 U.S. tour, kicking off on February 7th in Las Vegas and concluding on March 19th in Gallup, New Mexico. They’ll be supported by 200 Stab Wounds on some of those dates, which is awesome. General admission tickets are on sale now.
  • Der Weg einer Freiheit is awesome, and so it their latest album, Noktvrn. Check out this ‘making of’ studio documentary about the album here. And if you still haven’t given it a listen yet, that’s a poor choice, so pick it up here through Season of Mist.
  • Polish black metal project Hegeroth have released a new lyric video from their upcoming new album, Sacra Doctrina. Check out the clip for “Out Of Habit” here, and be sure to pre-order that album off Bandcamp ahead of its January 24th release.
  • We’ll end Monday with a little atmospheric black metal. Check out the new video from Lord Agheros for “The Walls Of Nowhere”. Koinè is out on February 18th through My Kingdom Music.

It got colder. And rainy. And the time changed. Make it stop. But, enough of my discomforts. New metal is why you came and we definitely can oblige with another long list this week: 200 Stab Wounds are coming in hot with their long awaited full length that’s an open love letter to the kind of gory death metal that struck fear in parents back in the day, next up is Dold Vorde Ens Navn with a black metal effort that’s an excellent combination of its members (do your research), then we’ve got an off kilter death metal outing from Vertebra Atlantis, a physical edition of cosmic black metal from Mesarthim, and a whole grab bag more that follows. As usual, something for every taste here so jump in and get some.
