CANTO: Lacuna Coil, Carcass, Telepathy, and More

My shins hurt.

  • Lacuna Coil have had to cancel some shows as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. This is a serious bummer, but I was wondering when we would start to see some postponed tours as a result of what’s going on in the world.
  • Carcass have revealed the name of their upcoming new album. It will be called Torn Arteries and it is slated for an August 7th release through Nuclear Blast. We are all looking forward to that one.
  • Auðn are back in the studio to record their third full-length album. I immensely enjoyed 2017’s Farvegir Fyrndar, so needless to say I’m excited to hear this news. Sounds like the new record will be out later this year through Season of Mist.
  • I’m in a weird mood, so let’s close with some post-metal. This is the latest from Telepathy, titled “The Void In Aimless Flight”. Burn Embrace will be out on March 27th through Svart Records.

In any form of art, there’s something magical about the “early works,” those seminal points of origin that set the course for wider narrative. It’s like the moment when the archaeologist finds and examines the fossil that ties together the map of disparate species. Or like the literary researcher who finally reaches the shelf with all the old texts, dusts them off and sets to work. Early extreme metal is a lot like this. There’s that turn around 1985 when you hear bands start to pull away from classical heavy metal. The guitar and bass picking patterns change, the vocals begin to lose their pitch, and the double-bass drum steadily becomes more important. Certain records appear and you realize, “wait, this isn’t really thrash anymore is it?” Buckle up and ride with us through The Nine Circles ov…80s Death Metal. Continue reading
