CANTO: Amaranthe, Enslaved, Heilung, and More

“Blinded by lack of reason, indulging the tales of doom.”

  • Amaranthe have officially canceled their North American tour with Seven Spires and Battle Beast. Those dates were supposed to fall mostly in August and September, so the canceling is understandable.
  • Remember those awesome upcoming Enslaved performances we’ll be able to watch from the comfort of our own homes? Well the July 30th edition just got better. The band has invited the fans to help curate the setlist.
  • Heilung have also made the decision to postpone their performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, which was scheduled for this coming October. The new date is set as October 5th, 2021.
  • We’ll close with some solid black metal from Somniate. This track is called “Of Fragrance and Light” and is taken from their debut album, The Meyrinkian Slumber, which drops on June 30th through Lavadome Productions.

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.
