CANTO: Schammasch, Abbath, Steel Panther, and More

Yesterday I was in Boston and Tuesday I was working on a city council campaign (not my own). Tomorrow I’ll be on Martha’s Vineyard. Doin’ stuff!

  • When your favorite black metal band drops a new track, you always start there. That band would be Schammasch and that song would be “Rays Like Razors”. And more importantly, they announced their next album will be out on November 8th through Prosthetic Records. It will be called Hearts of No Light and you can pre-order it now. Credit card, please.
  • Ok, I’m going to get heavy on a couple videos I stumbled on today. First, check the clip for “Fuck Everybody” from Steel Panther, because it is ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.
  • And then we have a live video from Abbath for “Hecate”. This song is really good. I should probably go back and listen to Outstrider in full at some point. Too bad I’m still busy blasting myself away with that Abbath-less Immortal record from last year…
  • Oh and finally, a new battle-y music video from Amon Amarth for “Shied Wall”. In all truthfulness, I still haven’t listened to their latest album, Berserker. But like with anything AA, I generally know what I’m going to get and I’m generally going to enjoy it. This is no different.

How long has it been? Over a week? Jesus, I’m sorry about that. Blame marathon training.

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!
