CANTO: Imperial Triumphant, Enslaved, Epica, and More

Imperial Triumphant

Another quiet day in the world of Nine Circles. No matter, there’s always news to share.

  • Imperial Triumphant have announced a new album scheduled for a July 31st release. It will be titled Alphaville and will be released through Century Media Records. You can check out some behind the scenes footage as well.
  • For those anticipating the release of Utgard, the next installment in the Enslaved legacy, you’ll probably be interested in the new details/background info the band shared about the album. It doesn’t drop until this fall (Nuclear Blast), but I am already getting excited.
  • Epica dropped the third vlog from their studio sessions for their next album. This one focuses in on the guitar and bass recording and you can check it out here. For the fans in Europe, there’s a tour with Apocalyptica you can look forward to.
  • Finally, here’s a new music video from The Night Flight Orchestra for “Golden Swansong”. Aeromantic is out now on Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Oblivion Access, Cattle Decapitation, Death Angel, and More

PrimitiveMan12.11.3.17

Off to a photo event! Don’t worry, it’s at a brewery.

  • If anyone is/was familiar with Austin Terror Fest, it’s now called Oblivion Access. It will take place next June 5th through 7th and there are some killer bands on the bill, including Primitive Man, Swans, and Converge. And there are many more bands still to be announced. Yay.
  • Cattle Decapitation has a new album out next week. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I will be soon. If you want some more hype for that release, check out this short film from Wes Benscoter for “The Unerasable Past”, which actually features a couple tracks from the new album.
  • I’m going to drop a few new videos at you tonight, just for the hell of it. This next one comes from Death Angel, who released one for “Immortal Behated”. That one is taken from Humancide, which is available now through Nuclear Blast.
  • Finally, Sabaton have released a new track with Apocalyptica called “Angels Calling”. Check it out below. Sabaton is touring extensively in Europe in early 2020, and we told you about the Apocalyptica stuff yesterday. I think.

I had to skip Canto yesterday to set up my new, and slightly less mediocre, sound system. Priorities!

“As the Darkness creeps over the Northern mountains of Norway and the silence reaches the woods, I awake and rise… Into the night I wander, like many nights before, and like in my dreams, but centuries ago.”
