CANTO: Amenra, Pessimist, The Black Dahlia Murder, and More

There is a correlation between the temperature outside, and my stress level inside.

  • Let’s start with a tour that I am pretty stoked for. The Black Dahlia Murder are touring North America with After The Burial, Carnifex, Rivers of Nihil, and Undeath this coming September and October. There are some pre-sale links out there as well, so go do that thing.
  • There’s another tour announcement out there today that’s striking all the sentimental feels. P.O.D., yes P.O.D., has announced a headlining tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of Satellite. And now I feel old. Anyway, those dates start in August, and tickets are available here.
  • More metal and booze collaborations! This time, it’s Pessimist teaming up with Brimming Horn Meadery to create their own “Blood for the Gods” mead. It’ll be made with plum and aronia berries that have been aged in oak barrels. Sounds pretty fucking delicious to me.
  • We’re going to wrap the day up with the new video from Amenra because, well, it’s expectedly incredible. This clip is for “Voor Immer”, the latest from De Doorn. That album is set for a June 25th release through Relapse Records, and can be purchased here. Additionally, there’s going to be a livestream event celebrating the album’s release on June 27th, and you can scoop up a ticket here. All kinds of good stuff.

CANTO: Green Carnation, Hatebreed, Whitechapel, and More

The Ocean

A couple long days in the books. A couple long days until mountains.

  • Yo, check out this lineup for UK Tech-Fest. The Ocean, Black Crown Initiate, Fit For An Autopsy… There is zero chance of me making this festival (July 2nd – 6th), but if I could I absolutely would.
  • Hatebreed have announced a headlining 2020 tour here in the U.S. The dates are in May and support is in the form of After The Burial, Havok, and Creeping Death. Tickets can be found here this Friday.
  • One more tour for today. Whitechapel have announced the Burn To Emerge U.S. tour this coming May and June. Support on that one will be from As I Lay Dying and Shadow Of Intent. I will 100% NOT be attending this one.
  • Green Carnation have revealed new album details. It’s been 14 years since the last album, but May 8th will bring us Leaves of Yesteryear through Season of Mist. You can check out the title-track right now.

CANTO: Children of Bodom, Amaranthe, Angel Witch, and More

Friday Canto! What a treat! This truly is the best of times.

  • A whole lot of change is coming for Children of Bodom. It was announced today that the final show with the current line up will be in Helsinki on December 15th. Jaska Raatikainen (drums), Henkka Blacksmith (bass), and Janne Wirman (keyboards) will all be stepping away at the end of the year. Whoa.
  • Emmure is back with a new track called “Pigs Ear”. Give it a listen if you feel so inclined for some reason. Emmure is also touring with As I Lay Dying and After The Burial the next couple months, just in case you needed another reason to roll your eyes.
  • Amaranthe have announced a North American tour with Battle Beast and Seven Spires in 2020. These dates are actually a ways out. We’re talking August and September, mostly.
  • Angel Witch celebrated the release of their latest album, Angel Of Light, with a new music video for the track “Death From Andromeda”. It rips. That album is out today on Metal Blade Records.
