CANTO: Behemoth, Katla, Enslaved, and More

Behemoth 2018

I just emerged from the woods, therefore I have no idea why I’m writing this. Have we been here before?

  • Behemoth is re-issuing their debut EP, And the Forests Dream Eternally, on vinyl and CD. Pre-orders are available now, and I’m fairly certain I’m claiming one of the vinyls as my own.
  • Katla have announced their sophomore effort, Allt þetta helvítis myrkur, will be out on November 13th through Prophecy . Pre-orders are available here, and I encourage you to check out the first single, titled “Villuljós”, immediately. I’m a big fan of this project, so this excites me.
  • I’m going to keep talking about Enslaved, and you’re going to keep dealing with it. Utgard is out October 2nd through Nuclear Blast (if you’ve been living under a rock), and in this latest trailer, Ivar discusses some of the themes on the new album.
  • Nightfall shared a live performance of “Ishtar (Celebrate your Beauty)”, with footage taken from the Sierra studios in Athens. Give it a watch. Worth noting, that track is taken from 1995’s Athenian Echoes, which is getting the reissue treatment from Season of Mist at some point in the near future. Dope.

I spent all day hiking. As a result, I don’t know why I’m writing this.

CANTO: Buildings, Behemoth, Yatra, and More

Behemoth 2018

New week, new me. Ok, that isn’t even remotely true. Metal news!

  • Buildings have announced some east coast tour dates with Bummer. Those dates run in February and March. There isn’t a date all that close to me unfortunately, but this is going to be a super fun tour for those that have the chance to check it out.
  • Yatra are lining up the release of their second album on January 31st. It will be called Blood of the Night and will be released through STB Records. You can stream a new track, titled “Blood Will Flow”, right now.
  • For those previously unaware, Volbeat and Clutch have some upcoming U.S. arena dates in April and May, and The Picturebooks will be in support. This should be a good time.
  • New music videos from Behemoth are always worth sharing. This one is for “Rom 5:8”. I haven’t watched it yet, but knowing the effort the Polish legends put into their video productions, I’m sure it’s as gloriously theatrical as always.
