CANTO: King Diamond, Atreyu, Khemmis, and More

king diamond

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.

CANTO: Primitive Man, Full of Hell, Vreid, Soen, and More

Primitive Man

All kine of dings to get to today.

  • Let’s see how many tours we can cram in here. First up: Full of Hell and Primitive Man. Oh dear god yes. U.S. dates in May and June. The “Weeping Caustic Torment US Tour”. So freaking tasty.
  • Vreid in support of Kalmah. Also exciting. Dates primarily in April. I don’t get to go to this one, which saddens me. Apparently this announcement first dropped a week or so ago. Sue me.
  • Motionless In White and Atreyu. Meh. I mean, I guess this appeals to a certain audiance. Just not this one/me.
  • Our video today comes from Soen, and it’s for “Covenant”. This is a good song off of a record I relatively enjoyed. Lotus dropped last month. Check it out if you haven’t yet.

Quickies: Cannibal Corpse return, new Overkill video, Crowbar fall tour and more

Well, the U.S. is out of the World Cup and I’m finally back home for the day. Not in the best of moods, given my first sentence of this post, but hey, what can you do. It’s Quickies time, so I’ll stop thinking about soccer for a second and take you back through what we missed in the world of metal today. Here goes:

Until tomorrow, then!
