CANTO: Behemoth, Thulcandra, Insomnium, and More

Behemoth 2018

All kinds of new shit to share today, and work still fucking sucks for those wondering.

  • We’ll start with Behemoth, who have announced the release of In Absentia Dei, the streaming event from last year that was performed in an abandoned church. That will be out on December 17th through Metal Blade, and you an check out the first single, “Evoe”, right now.
  • For those that have the ability to get to Northwest Terror Fest, I recommend that you make that happen, for I cannot. The lineup for 2022 features Panopticon, Ludicra, Repulsion… etc, etc. Honestly, it’s absolutely stacked. Tickets can be acquired here, but I expect them to go quickly.
  • Exodus dropped the second single (with lyric video) from Persona Non Grata, titled “Clickbait”. Just a casual reminder that the new album drops on November 19th through Nuclear Blast.
  • I’m also going to throw in something I completely (and stupidly) missed earlier this week. And that, of course, is the news from Thulcandra. It’s been forever since Ascension Lost, but I’m happy to share that a new album, A Dying Wish, drops on October 29th through Napalm Records. Check out the new track, “Funeral Pyre”, here.
  • We’ll close with the latest video from Insomnium, because that will let me cruise into the weekend on a high note. Below you’ll find the clip for “The Wanderer”, the latest track taken from Argent Moon. That EP is officially out today through Century Media.

CANTO: Deafheaven, Behemoth, Dornenreich, and More

I don’t even know where to begin with today’s updates!

  • Yes I do. It’s Deafheaven. All the details we were looking for regarding a new album are with us now. Infinite Granite will be out on August 20th through Sargent House, and can be pre-ordered here. Better yet, you can check out the first new track from that album, “Great Mass of Color”, through either YouTube or Bandcamp.
  • And then we’ll slide into a tour announcement. John 5 will be cruising through the U.S. this coming August and September with Jared James Nichols, Sarah Longfield, and Black Satellite. Tickets are on sale now, and can be scooped up here.
  • I’ve heard a lot of good things about the new Dornenreich album, Du wilde Liebe sei, but I haven’t checked anything out myself yet. That will change today with the release of “Das Sehnen von Mond und Sonne”, available for streaming here. That album is out this coming Friday through Prophecy.
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Behemoth, a band I don’t mention nearly as much as I used to. It’s for “Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha”, which is taken from last year’s EP, A Forest. Check it out below.

CANTO: Seth, Behemoth, Enslaved, and More

Ok, there is a lot to get to today, let’s have at it.

  • Is anyone else either staying up super late or waking up super early to pre-order the Cinematic Tour 2020 release from Enslaved? I’m going to do my best, because everything I’ve seen to this point looks absolutely incredible.
  • Behemoth are reissuing one their best works, Evangelion, on vinyl through Metal Blade Records. The official release is June 11th, and there a couple different variants available. Pre-order that one here.
  • French black metallers Seth have released a new song and video, commemorating the anniversary of the Notre Dame fire, titled “Les Océans du Vide!”. That’s taken from La morsure du Christ, which is out on May 7th through Season of Mist. Check out the video right here.
  • Bodysnatcher shared a cover of the classic Hatebreed track “Smash Your Enemies”. There’s a limited edition 7″ available here, or you can just check out the visualizer on YouTube.
  • And that’s enough for Thursday. We’ll close with the brand new video from Pestilence for “Morbvs Propagationem”. That track is taken from Exitivm, which is out on June 25th (Agonia Records).

CANTO: Gojira, Behemoth, The Crown, and More

Pretty much… over it. But, hey, we get new Gojira soon! As well as some new videos. What is it, Friday?

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.
