CANTO: The Absence, Byzantine, Autarkh, and More

I am totally overwhelmed with shit to do today, so let’s hustle this thing out.

  • We’ll start with Byzantine, who have launched a new website, as well as a web series that will premiere this summer titled “Pick A Side”. Check out this teaser video. Sounds a like a pretty cool concept. They’ll also be on tour this summer to celebrate their 21st anniversary. You can find a link to that stuff at their new website as well.
  • And then we have some new videos to share. Let’s start with The Absence, and their new clip for “Black Providence”. That’s the third track taken from Coffinized, which is set for a June 25th release through M-Theory Audio. Pre-order that album here.
  • Do you like beer as much as you like metal? Then you might want to check out Vox&Hops Brewtal North America. Participating breweries will be working with bands to release unique, collaborative brews… and this is exactly what I need in my life right now. Learn more here, there are some pretty awesome names involved.
  • Have you ever felt the need to witness a McDonald’s themed metal band live? Well, now is your chance. Mac Sabbath is hitting the road across the United States starting in late August. Not entirely sure what to do with this information… but that’s probably the point.
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Autarkh for “Alignment”. That’s another one taken from Form In Motion, which dropped earlier this year through Season of Mist.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

CANTO: WuW, Autarkh, Oceanhoarse, and More

Today has not been terrible, which is appreciated.

  • Dead Poet Society have announced a livestream event for their debut album, scheduled for March 13th at 3 PM EST. Tickets for the event can be purchased here. The album, -!- (“The Exclamation Album”), drops the day before, and can still be pre-ordered at this location.
  • Oceanhoarse, the heavy metal collective out of Helsinki, have signed on to a worldwide deal with German label Noble Demon. Their currently-unnamed debut through the label should be out in August, but to mark the occasion they released a new single, “One with the Gun”, which can be streamed here.
  • Dutch extreme metal outfit Autarkh have premiered a new song over at Outburn Magazine. “Alignment” is taken from their upcoming new album, Form in Motion, which is scheduled for a March 12th released through Season of Mist. I know we’ve mentioned that one before… I think.
  • Lastly, the new music video from WuW for “En Souvenir Des Jours Que nous N’Aurons Pas Vécus”. The Parisian post-metal duo have their latest album, Rétablir L’Eternité, out now through Prosthetic Records. News coming from all over the spectrum today. Cool.

Hello and welcome again to another Saturday morning mixtape. This week, we have the excellent new single from Gojira, my favorite Sad Boy Jams, and quite a bit more metalcore than we’ve had on here in a while. Check it out below.

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.
