CANTO: Falls of Rauros, Hammerfall, Malevolence, and More

I am… overwhelmed. At least 2022 is off to a fast start in the world of heavy music.

  • Speaking of which, we’ll lead in with new stuff from Falls of Rauros. A new track, “Poverty Hymn”, is streaming over at Invisible Oranges. As a reminder, Key To A Vanishing Future is set for a March 25th release through Gilead Media… and we are all very excited.
  • Gothic rockers Christian Death have revealed a cover of David Bowie’s “Quicksand”. Here’s the video for it. I’m going to check this out eventually, but eventually is not now. Evil Becomes Rule is out on May 6th through Season of Mist.
  • Malevolence have announced a new album, Malicious Intent. Their third full-length album will be released on May 20th through their own MLVLTD label in partnership with Nuclear Blast. Pre-order it here, and check out the first single from that effort, “On Broken Glass”.
  • Spite are headlining a U.S. tour this coming May and June (and I guess July) with BoundariesVaticanNo Zodiac, and Bodybox. Ticket go on sale this coming Friday here.
  • And we’ll close with the latest from Hammerfall. This is the new track and video, “Brotherhood”. Hammer of Dawn is out February 25th, this coming Friday, through Napalm Records.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

Wow, two hundred of these things, huh? It may be a little early to break out the whiskey in celebration, but confetti and streamers should do nicely. Or maybe just more curated tunes instead. This time, we’ve got two generations of post-hardcore colliding on the new Seeyouspacecowboy… song, a classic Bloodbath jam from what is (IMHO) one of the more underrated Bloodbath releases, Marissa Nadler covering Metallica, and much more. Thanks for sticking with us.

SATURDAY. Finally. What a week, right? But now it’s time for some R&R or whatever you’ve got on your plate for the weekend. And, whatever that is, we’ve got the soundtrack for it with this week’s mixtape of what we’ve been jamming since last Saturday. We’ve got new jams from Wolves in the Throne Room, Lantlos, Craven Idol, Perilaxe Occlusion, and Morgue Walker as well as some sorta new ones from Bodybox, Oathbreaker, Amenra, and Møl. Obviously, there’s more hiding under the hood so click on the play button below and crack that cold one, or get to doing whatever it is you’re doing. We got you.
