CANTO: King Woman, Red Fang, Burning Witches, and More

Today was a little more tame, which is all I can ask for.

CANTO: Crown, Nightfall, The Amenta, and More

Ok, getting back on track for the rest of week. Something like that.

  • The highly anticipated sophomore release from Crown, The End Of All Things, is steadily approaching. Today, they released the new single, “Shades”. The official release date is set for April 16th, through Pelagic Records, with pre-orders also available at that link. I’m definitely excited about this one.
  • For those that can’t wait an extra day for the release of At Night We Prey, I have good news. Nightfall is streaming their new album in full at this link. But, like I said, it’s out officially tomorrow through Season of Mist, and you can still snag a physical copy if you feel so inclined.
  • Atreyu news for anyone that might be interested. Today they released two new tracks, “Warrior” and “Underrated”, the former of which features Travis Barker, which is pretty cool. Of course, those releases also came with a new album announcement. Baptize will be out on June 4th through Spinefarm Records, and pre-orders are already up.
  • For those planning on checking out Roadburn Redux, and you should, another slew of bands was announced today. The list includes Primitive Man, Mizmor, Wayfarer, and more. Here’s some more info, if you need it.
  • And we’ll close with a new video clip from The Amenta for “Psoriastasis”. Revelator is out now through Debemur Morti Productions. Dang, solid roundup today…

CANTO: Devin Townsend, Loviatar, Wednesday 13, and More

Slow day but let’s try and whip something up. And then I guess I’ll go to the mountains.

  • Devin Townsend is preparing for an enhanced released of 2019’s Empath. This release, titled Empath – The Ultimate Edition, will feature the original record as well as a couple Blu-Ray discs that feature bonus material, documentary footage, and more. And it will be out on June 5th.
  • Loviatar have a new album dropping on Friday (April 3rd) called Lightless through Prosthetic Records. If you’ve needed some doom in your life, you can get a sample of that record today through the new music video for “Horse In Thrall”.
  • Looks like Atreyu have released a song with M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) and Aaron Gillespie (Underoath). That’s interesting. The song is called “Super Hero”, and you can check out here if you feel so inclined.
  • Lastly, we’ll close with a new lyric video from Wednesday 13 for “The Hearse”. That is taken from the most recent album, Necrophaze, which is out now on Nuclear Blast. Enjoy.

CANTO: King Diamond, Atreyu, Khemmis, and More

I got nothing. Well, nothing except loads and loads of tour announcements.

  • Most significantly, King Diamond, who announced a new album and tour today. The album, which will mark the first studio album in about 12 years, will be called The Institute. It won’t be released until sometime next year but we can expect a new single in the next few months it appears. And the tour. Holy crap the tour. They are November and December dates in North America, and support is in the form of Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and Idle Hands. This is absolutely incredible.
  • And then we have Khemmis and UnI would love to make this show happen as well, however those dates are specifically out west this coming December.
  • And then there’s Atreyu, who are going to hit the road in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band. Definitely not my realm of interest, but the idea behind this tour is cool; they are going to perform 20 songs, and those 20 songs were chosen by their fans. Those are U.S. dates in October and November with Whitechapel, He Is Legend, Tempting Fate, and Santa Cruz.
  • Now that (most) of today’s tour announcements are out of the way, let’s close with a little post-black metal. This comes from a band called Dawn of Ouroboros and the song is called “Sorrow’s Eclipse”. This track was pulled from their upcoming new album, The Art of Morphology. I’m into this. Check it out.
