CANTO: Carcass, Behemoth, Armored Saint, and More

Behemoth 2018

I spent all day hiking. As a result, I don’t know why I’m writing this.

CANTO: Drab Majesty, Killswitch Engage, Armored Saint, and More

drabmajesty.7.25.18.113

What a week. He says for the seventh straight week.

  • This announcement came as little surprise, but Fire In The Mountains has been postponed to 2021. I say postponed and not canceled because it looks like they are going to keep some of the key elements of 2020’s festival intact, which is great. I am going to do everything I can to be there next year.
  • Killswitch Engage are releasing Atonement II B-Sides For Charity. 100% of those proceeds will go directly to COVID-19 relief, which is awesome. It’s officially on Bandcamp right now, before moving to all other platforms next week. Jump on that shit.
  • Drab Majesty news is always worth sharing, so here they are performing a cover of Blind Melon’s “No Rain”. As expected, it’s a ton of fun. Here’s the Bandcamp link. Also, if you haven’t already, go spend a ton of money on Bandcamp today.
  • Armored Saint has released a new video for “Isolation (Live from Isolation)”, a live re-recording of the track taken from 1987’s Raising Fear. Let’s watch it together, because in all this, I am enjoying seeing bands pull these kinds of things off.

CANTO: Taake, Argus, Eyehategod, and More

2/27/2018. I’m halfway through the week. I guess that’s good.

  • Eyehategod have announced a March tour with Cro-Mags and Buzzov*en. Could be fun, but I’ll probably miss this one.
  • Another tour! (I’m being lazy today.) Armored Saint with Act Of Defiance. July and August. United States of America. Moving on.
  • Not sure if you’ve seen those Taake shows being canceled due to (mostly) Hoest’s idiocy that dates back to 2007, but the tour looks to be canceled entirely. I’ve seen Taake a couple times and they didn’t suck. That said, this is gonna happen when you implement questionable imagery and lyrics, regardless of how many apologies are made.
  • Argus have released a video for “Devils Of Your Time”. This one was taken from the album, From Fields Of Fire, which dropped last September.
