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.

Quickies: Obscura shake-up, King 810 continue to suck, plus DRUM CAM!

Quick turnaround for Quickies today, because hey! It’s Friday, and I don’t want to spend any more time on these than I need to. Here’s what we’ve got for you today:

Check back tomorrow for The Dump! Now get to happy hour, dammit!


Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.

Quickies: May 22, 2014

FINALLY. It’s the end of the day on Thursday, May 22nd, meaning that–as you may somehow have avoiding seeing in the other, oh…EVERY SINGLE POST this week in which we mentioned this–it’s time for Horns Up’s annual pilgrimage to Maryland DeathFest! It should be quite a fun weekend. So much fun, in fact, that we probably won’t be able to give you a Quickies tomorrow. Or a Dump on Saturday. Which is fine because we’re not doing a proper episode this week, but rather a series of mini-episodes previewing and recapping the weekend’s events. It’ll be quite metal.

That being said, consider this your final edition of Quickies for this week, and of course, eagerly await our return on Tuesday. Because, duh. Anyway, here’s what we missed today:

Die, Geoff. Just die.

Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
