CANTO: Anomalie, Whitechapel, Omnium Gatherum, and More

Squeezing one more in this week, just because I was cleaning out the inbox anyway.

  • We’ll start with Anomalie, one of my favorite discoveries of the last couple years. Their new album, Tranceformation, is out on November 5th through AOP Records, and today they shared a new track titled “Cerulean Sun”, which features Sakis Tolis of Rotting Christ. Awesome.
  • And then we have Whitechapel, who are following up on the news of their massive upcoming tour with Cannibal Corpse with a new track and video for “Orphan”. That’s another one taken from Kin, which is out on October 29th through Metal Blade Records.
  • Sticking with Metal Blade for another couple seconds, if you couldn’t wait to hear God Ends Here, the latest from Aeon, the full album is now available for streaming right here.
  • Wiegedood, which is kinda just fun to say (assuming I’m saying it right), dropped a new track today titled “Nuages”. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, There’s Always Blood At The End Of The Road, which will be available on January 14th through Century Media.
  • I guess we’re going to double up on Century Media today as well. Omnium Gatherum (also fun to say) released a video for the new track “Fortitude”. Origin is out on November 5th, and the aforementioned video is available below. Enjoy that while I finalize packing for L.A.

CANTO: Anomalie, Deathsomnia, Kowloon Walled City, and More

Days off no longer exist. Apparently. Late-stage capitalism sure is fun.

  • Anomalie, one my favorite black metal projects, has set November 5th as the release date for Tranceformation. Their fourth studio album will be out through AOP Records, and you can stream the first new track from that effort, “Trance II: Relics”, right here.
  • Deathsomnia released You Will Never Find Peace last Friday through Isolation Records, and today they gave us a new video for “Void Oblivion”. That track features Gabriel Franco of Unto Others (formerly Idle Hands), which is an added bonus.
  • And then we’ve got new material from Emma Ruth Rundle, another one of my personal favorites. Engine of Hell is also set for a November 5th release through Sargent House, and a clip for “Return” is available right here.
  • Oh shit! I almost forgot about this from yesterday. Kowloon Walled City officially have a new album on the horizon. Piecework will be out on October 8th through Gilead Media and Neurot Recordings.
  • Zombies are fun, so let’s close with the new clip from Ice Nine Kills for “Rainy Day”. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood, which is out on October 15th through Fearless Records.

CANTO: Der Weg einer Freiheit, Waldgeflüster, Shy, Low, and More

Apparently this has turned into an every other day kind of post? Oh well. Sometimes life (still) be like that.

  • The only reason I’m not closing with this is because it was a yesterday post. But Der Weg einer Freiheit released a new single, “Morgen”, along with new album details. You can pre-order Noktvrn here, which will be out through Season of Mist. I already did exactly that. Duh.
  • Hey look, another new track from a German black metal band that I absolutely adore. Waldgeflüster are releasing Dahoam on September 24th through AOP Records, and today they unveiled an epic new track titled “Am Tatzlwurm”, which features JJ from Harakiri for the Sky. It’s incredible.
  • Archspire unveiled the title track from their new album, Bleed The Future, and everything they do is a party so let’s toss that in as well. That album is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
  • Animals As Leaders have released their first new material in, what, five years? Damn. Check out the brand new track and video, “Monomyth”, right here. They’ve also signed a new deal with Sumerian Records so… new album soon please?
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Shy, Low, the instrumental rock collective out of Richmond. Check out “The Beacon” below, and keep an eye out for Snake Behind the Sun, which will be out on October 8th through Pelagic Records.

CANTO: Waldgeflüster, Rotting Christ, Cradle of Filth, and More

Oh good, the start of another fucking work week.

  • One of my favorite black metal projects, Waldgeflüster, are releasing their sixth album on September 24th. Dahoam will be out through AOP Records, and you can check out the lyric video for the first single, “Im Ebersberger Forst”, right here.
  • Rotting Christ are reissuing Der Perfekte Traum on vinyl, an EP originally released back in 1999. It will be available on September 3rd, with a couple different variants, exclusively through Vinylstore.gr.
  • Cradle of Filth have announced a special Halloween show, which will take place at The Roundhouse in London. It’ll serve as the album release show for Existence Is Futile, which drops on the 22nd through Nuclear Blast. And a memorable release show I’m sure it will be.
  • I can’t tell if this is old news or not, so I’m throwing it in anyway. Underoath have announced a 2022 North American headlining tour with support from Every Time I Die and Spiritbox. That run of shows kicks off February 18th in Dallas, and runs through March 25th in Atlanta.
  • And we’ll close with some more black metal. This is the incredibly entertaining new music video from Furze for “Black Psych Tormentor”. That’s the title-track from a new album, set for an October 22nd release.

CANTO: Emptiness, Agrypnie, Wardruna, and More

This is just getting chaotic at this point. Unsustainable will be the word of the year for 2021 in my life. Anyway. What did I miss in the metal world in the past 36 hours?

  • Emptiness is streaming their full performance from Roadburn Redux. That event took place back in April (yet somehow feels only like yesterday), but is available again at the Season of Mist YouTube channel. This is obviously in support of their latest album, Vide, which I really wish I enjoyed more… but I still need to spend more time with it. Stay tuned.
  • The Wardruna North American tour that was supposed to happen… this year? Last year? Whatever. It’s been moved to 2022, and they’ve added a couple new dates to the excursion. Those dates are all in October and November, so there’s some time to kill before we get there. That said, this is something I would like to take part in when the time comes.
  • German post-black metal project Agrypnie have debuted a new track and video ahead of the release of the sixth full-length effort, Metamorphosis. That album is set for a July 30th release through AOP Records (and a few others), but you can check out “Verwüstung” right now.
  • This is a fun one to toss in the mix today. Ghoul have announced a free livestream this coming Saturday, the 26th, along with the release of a limited edition “Live In The Flesh” VHS. I mean, I know tapes are making a comeback… but I didn’t see VHS tapes doing the same. But who knows!?
  • And we’ll wrap up with a new music video from Nightfall for “Martyrs of the Cult of the Dead (Agita)”. The link below is the censored version, because I guess the original was released via OnlyFans? What on Earth is even happening anymore.
