CANTO: Epica, Trivium, August Burns Red, and More

Epica8.31.11

One more this week. I think.

  • Epica has launched their second studio vlog from their sessions at Sandland Recording Facilities. This episode focuses on the drum recordings with Arien van den Broek.
  • Couple new tracks and/or videos to share today, and the first one comes from August Burns Red. The track is called “Paramount” and it’s taken from the upcoming new album, Guardians, which drops April 3rd through Fearless Records.
  • In case you missed it, Aborted is dropping a new EP on April 17th titled La Grande Mascarade. It will be out through Century Media Records, and you can listen to a new track called “Gloom and the Art of Tribulation” right now.
  • Trivium dropped a new music video for “What The Dead Men Say”, the title-track from their upcoming album. That is set for a release on April 24th through Roadrunner Records. Give is a watch below.

CANTO: Aborted, Cirith Ungol, Tribe of Pazuzu, and More

Things I like: when shuffle mode absolutely hooks you up on a long run.

  • Aborted have announced a new 3-song EP, titled La Grande Massacre, will be out on April 17th. They also announced a small run of shows around that album, beginning April 14th and running through May 17th.
  • Cirith Ungol have revealed details for their next album/first album in forever, which will be called Forever Black. That album drops on April 24th through Metal Blade. You can check out a new track, titled “Legions Arise”, right now.
  • It looks like we are starting to get some Summer Slaughter rumors. If we’re going to take that little nugget at face value, it looks like Deicide will be headlining. Which I am definitely here for. Also, a reminder that you can’t spell “slaughter” without “laughter.”
  • Tribe of Pazuzu recently dropped a new track and lyric video for “King Of All Demons” and it rips quite mightily. The EP of the same name is out on March 6th through Vic Records.

CANTO: Irist, Napalm Death, Neck of the Woods, and More

irist

Would YOU love a monsterman? That’s the real question.

  • Some somber news to start off with. Corrosion of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin passed away at the age of 53. The cause of death has not been revealed, but you can read a statement from the band here.
  • There are some more headlining dates for Napalm Death coming in the near future. Those are North American dates in April and May, and support will include WVRM, Tombs, Aborted, The Locust… etc.
  • Neck of the Woods have signed on with Pelagic Records for the release of their latest full-length. The Annex Of Ire drops on March 20th. I generally pay close attention to releases under that label, and this will be no different.
  • So this is some seriously awesome shit that I totally missed a couple days ago. This is a video for “Burning Sage”, the first single from Irist, whose debut album drops on March 27th via Nuclear Blast. It’ll be titled Order Of The Mind, and is a record you absolutely cannot miss.

CANTO: Darkthrone, Cryptopsy, Enthroned, and Amon Amarth

Silver needle, golden nail. It’s a song.

  • We obviously have to start with the big update from Darkthrone. The next studio album from Fenriz and Nocturno Culto, titled Old Star, will be out on May 31st through Peaceville. So much good news there.
  • Cyptopsy are about to hit the road with Aborted, which is enough news on its own. But there’s an extra layer to this one… if you plan on attending one of the show dates and feel like bringing a couple local brews with you to share with vocalist Matt Mcgachy, you could get in for free! Fuck, I want to do that so badly! I love beer AND death metal!
  • Updates from Enthroned, which is a name I definitely haven’t mentioned in awhile. The Belgian black metal group is set to release their next studio album, titled Cold Black Suns, on June 7th. You can check out a new song called “Silent Redemption” right now.
  •  Amon Amarth have released details behind their next album, and coupled it with a new video for a song called “Raven’s Flight”. Berserker will be out on May 3rd via Metal Blade… soon!
