CANTO: Soilwork, Tribulation, Allegaeon, and More

Saturday post because SO many things happened yesterday.

  • Allegaeon released a new digital single, Concerto in Dm, which features that title-track and B-side “In Flanders Fields”. Those tracks date back to the Apoptosis days, and you can check out a play-through and documentary here.
  • Trivium’s Matt Heafy has teamed up with social media person/human/whatever Jared Dines to create the Dines X Heafy EP. Watch the video for the single “Dear Anxiety” if you feel so inclined.
  • Tribulation opened my Friday with a pretty substantial lineup change. Jonathan Hultén has made the decision to pursue other paths, with Joseph Tholl taking his place. There appears to be no negative feelings in any direction… but this is still weird for me.
  • And finally, Soilwork released a new video for “A Whisp Of The Atlantic”, the title-track from their new EP which dropped Friday through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Vader, Tool, Allegaeon, and More

tool 2019

I mean, nothing else to do these days, right?

  • So here’s a fun thing. Allegaeon dropped of a cover of Yes’ classic “Roundabout”. You can watch/listen to it here. And if you want a behind-the-scenes look at how it came to be, that’s available here.
  • Tool officially announced the very-much-assumed postponement of their 2020 shows that weren’t already, well, postponed. If you want or need a full list of those dates, here it is.
  • Carcass have announced that the release of their next album, Torn Arteries, will be delayed. It was originally planned for an August release through Nuclear Blast, and no new timeline has been established yet.
  • Let’s close with a new music video from Vader. This one is for “Into Oblivion”, which is taken from the upcoming new album, Solitude In Madness. That is out May 1st through Nuclear Blast.
