CANTO: Katatonia, Lord Dying, Tombs, and More


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.

Quickies: Slipknot’s #HotMoshingTake, Christopher Lee’s Christmas hilarity and more

It’s Quickies time! I’m coming in a bit early with these, but no matter–let’s see what we missed in metal today:

Leather Leaf is based in Austin and, coincidentally, will also never be making it out of there.

Anyway, that’ll do it for today. Check back tomorrow for more!


Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.

Quickies: May 27, 2014

It’s Tuesday!

“If I could get my hands on your brother and his friends I would fucking strangle them. Newspaper clippings everywhere about the parties they threw at death house.”

Remember Alpha Sigma Satan? Our metal fraternity from back in the ‘Cuse days? Yeah, the younger brother of Kevin (our co-host emeritus) will be residing there this coming year. That was the reaction from the landlord of said house upon realizing this. Shit was real in our time.

Anyway, as we ease back into our regularly scheduled programming (and Dan heads off to Steel Panther), there is obviously some catching up to do. Today’s Quickies:

Opeth’s Pale Communion

Album is out August 25th. Not sure how I feel about the artwork itself, but the Latin quotes are kinda interesting. Anyway, that outta cover it for today. More Quickies tomorrow.
