CANTO: Crowbar, Cellar Darling, Body Count, and More

Today has been crazy, so let’s see what I can dig up in like 15 minutes.

  • Entertainment One (eOne) is releasing a limited edition vinyl repressing of Time Heals Nothing, the Crowbar classic that was released originally back in 1995. There will only be 1000 copies, split between the US and EU/UK. Grab your copy today right here.
  • Cellar Darling released a new video for “Dance”. The track was released back in January through Nuclear Blast, and was originally intended to be included in the 2019 concept album, The Spell. If you want a physical copy of Dance, you can acquire it here.
  • August Burns Red have announced the Guardian Sessions EP, set for an April 16th release through Fearless Records. Pre-order it here, and check out “Icarus”, a new track that includes a vocal cameo from bassist Dustin Davidson.
  • Body Count ended up releasing that fan-created music video for “The Hate Is Real”, another track taken from Carnivore. I’ve dabbled in some video editing in recent years, and damn… I got nothing. Good stuff here, check it out below.

CANTO: Crown, Dirge, Vreid, and More

I am very tired today. Must be the fact that I exercised for a change?

  • We’ll start with Crown, because I’ve found myself listening to a lot of The End of All Things recently. They released a new video for “Illumination” today, the latest to drop in advance of the aforementioned album’s release. The End of All Things will be available on April 16th through Pelagic Records.
  • French post-metal collective Dirge have revealed a new track titled “Carrion Shine”. That’s taken from their upcoming new compilation album, Vanishing Point, which is set for a March 26th release through Division Records and the band’s own Blight Records.
  • Vreid premiered a new song and video over at Decibel, and that feels like something worth including today. “The Morning Red” is the latest taken from their upcoming new album, with accompanying film, Wild North West. That’s slated for an April 30th release through Season of Mist.
  • And now for something (relatively) different! Did you ever wonder what it would be like if a band like August Burns Red covered the “Westworld” theme song? Well, wonder no more! Honestly, I’m kind of into it. Fun fact: I’ve tried watching that show on three separate occasions and always end up getting lost.

CANTO: Gatecreeper, Autarkh, August Burns Red, and More

I am once again announcing that the highlight of my day was receiving a new package in the mail.

  • More fun news from Gatecreeper! Let’s keep it rollin’! The death metal collective have announced their first livestream concert, scheduled for February 19th at 9:00 PM EST. It’ll take place at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, and tickets can be acquired here.
  • Autarkh have premiered a new track and video over at the Roadburn Redux site, titled “Lost To Sight”, a track taken from Form In Motion. That album drops on March 12th via Season of Mist. Fun fact, that album will be played in its entirety during their Roadburn Redux set.
  • August Burns Red shared a reimagined version of a track taken from 2020’s Guardians, an album released through Fearless Records. Give “Extinct By Instinct (Reprise)” a listen right here.
  • There were a few hits for this video in the inbox, which is a good enough reason to share it here. Check out the clip below from Valfreya for “Warlords”. That track is taken from Promised Land, which was released back in 2017.

Much to share today! So let’s get right to it…

CANTO: Lamb of God, August Burns Red, Rammstein, and More

LambofGod2020

What are we on? Week 6? 7? Is anything even real anymore?

  • Lamb of God are the latest to announce a delay in the release of a new album. Their self-titled album will now drop on June 19th, five weeks later than the originally scheduled release. Understandable, and at least we don’t have to wait too much longer when all is said and done.
  • Rammstein released a statement at the end of last week regarding their upcoming stadium tour. While not confirming the shows were going to be canceled or postponed, there’s no doubt that might end up being the reality. They’re doing their due diligence, and we will need to stay tuned.
  • Here’s some drum cam footage of Abbath‘s “Bridge of Spasms” performed in Poland as part of their Outstrider European tour earlier this year. Honestly, I will take any live footage I can get at this point.
  • August Burns Red dropped a cover of NOFX‘s “Linoleum”, with the help of Shane Told of Silverstein. Not a bad way to spend some quarantine time. A reminder that their latest album, Guardians, is out now on Fearless Records.
