CANTO: Amon Amarth, Stratovarius, Massacre, and More

These work days are only a little bit fun. Which, I guess, is why my nights are spent doing this?

  • Break out the drinking horns. Amon Amarth has a new album on the horizon. The Great Heathen Army is out on August 5th through Metal Blade. And yes, we do have new material to share along with that news. Give “Get in the Ring” a listen here.
  • Symphonic metal veterans Stratovarius are also releasing a new album later this year, their first is almost a decade. Survive is set for a September 23rd through earMusic, and the title track can be heard now.
  • Out of Nuclear Blast, Massacre has announced a new EP. That’s generally a good thing, because more Massacre is always the correct amount. Anyway, Mythos is out on July 1st. Check out “Behind The Serpent’s Curse”, which features Anders Odden of Cadaver, right now.
  • New Cloak dates have been added to their 2022 schedule. These are June and July dates with Bewitcher, and you can get the full scoop here.
  • And we’re going to wrap up with the video for the new single from Municipal Waste titled “Electrified Brain”. That’s the title track from their new album, which drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Carcass, Cadaver, Blind Channel, and More

Fucking summer colds, yo. Let’s wrap this week up.

  • Damn, apparently Ghost Bath is still a thing. They’ve announced a new album, Self Loather, which will be released on October 29th through Nuclear Blast Records. Check out the visualizer for the first single, “Convince Me to Bleed”, and pre-order your copy here.
  • I’ve heard A LOT of good things about the new Carcass album, Torn Arteries, so we’ll link you to the new animated music video for “Dance of Ixtab (Psychopomp & Circumstance March No. 1)”. That album drops on September 17th, also through Nuclear Blast.
  • You know what? This is going to be a Nuclear Blast news roundup today, and that’s fucking fine. Equilibrium released a a new single titled “Revolution”, and kicked off pre-orders for a Sagas vinyl reissue. Fun fact: that was the last Equilibrium album I truly loved. Those will ship out November 19th.
  • South Dakota metalcore collective Earth Groans are releasing a new EP on September 3rd through Solid State Records titled The Body. Check out the new single, “Drink”, which you can stream right here.
  • Cadaver gave us a new music video today, for “Feed The Pigs”, which features Kam Lee of Massacre (awesome). That track, of course, is taken from Edder & Bile, which dropped last year through… Nuclear Blast.
  • We’ll close with a new single and music video from Blind Channel for “Balboa”. That track is also available to stream and purchase here, through Century Media.
