CANTO: Mono, Insomnium, Armored Saint, and More

Alright, after a some time off I think I’m finally getting the wheels turning again. Not at work, of course. But everywhere else, for sure.

  • This is from last week, but since I can’t get enough of Insomnium I’m going to share it anyway. The Finnish melodic death metal legends announced a new EP, Argent Moon, which is set for a September 17th release through Century Media. In conjunction, they also dropped a new track and video titled “The Antagonist”. Personally, I love the melancholy vibe of the last few singles I’ve heard. This band can do no wrong.
  • Armored Saint have announced fresh tour dates with Black Label Society and Prong. It’s a very brief run of five shows, all out west, from December 27th through the 31st. The only band I’ve seen live out of this bunch recently was BLS, and based on that alone I can confirm these shows are worth attending if you can manage it.
  • Bastardur, the crust punk project from Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), has officially signed on with Season of Mist and announced new album details. Satan’s Loss of Son will be out on October 29th, and you can preview what’s to come with the new single titled “Viral Tumor”.
  • Let’s close out a very weird day with the new single and video from Mono, who I love dearly. This track it titled “Riptide”, which is taken from Pilgrimage of the Soul. That album is set for a September 17th release through Pelagic Records.

Today was a big day. Tomorrow will be an even bigger day.

  • Stop EVERYTHING. Katatonia revealed stuff today. City Burials, the next album from the somber metal legends, will be out on April 24th through Peaceville Records. Check out the first single, titled “Lacquer”, right now.
  • Let’s use this opportunity to remind everyone of the upcoming Lord Dying tour with Obituary and Black Label Society, and also introduce this new video for “Freed From The Pressures Of Time”. That track is from last year’s Mysterium Tremendum.
  • I think we are all aware of the upcoming Napalm Death tour this spring, but today I’m happy to share that Tombs will be joining them. That’s gonna be a beast of a lineup, not gonna lie.
  • Here’s a new music video from Anvil for “Legal At Last”, the title track from their upcoming album which will be out February 14th on AFM Records. Enjoy.
