CANTO: Fire In The Mountains, Carnation, Symphony X, and More

I worked today when nobody else did apparently. But hey, at least I head to Cali on Friday.

  • Let’s start with Fire In The Mountains, who announced the final lineup today. The last additions include the likes of Emma Ruth Rundle, Hexvessel, The Otolith, and Helen Money. Needless to say, an incredibly lineup just got even better. Can. Not. Wait.
  • And then we’ll jump over to Symphony X, who announced the supporting artists on their upcoming North America tour. They’ll be joined by Haken and Trope. That tour starts on May 10th and runs through June 12th. Tickets go on sale this week.
  • Lots of tour news today apparently. And the next announcement comes from Undeath, who have a U.S. headlining tour coming in November. It’s a small run of shows, but covers some decent ground on this side of the country. Get your tickets here.
  • Carnation have announced a new live album, The Galaxy Sessions, which drops on January 7th through Season of Mist. With that news, they also revealed the clip for “Reincarnation”, which we will wrap up this Monday with. Check it out below.

CANTO: Samael, Cirith Ungol, Carnation, and More

Happy Tuesday, all. Had to take yesterday evening off to get stabbed with a needle. Yay!

  • Transcending Records will be issuing limited edition vinyl pressings of Samael classics Rebellion and Eternal. Originally released in 1995 and 1999 respectively, these offerings will be available on May 28th in a few different variants. Pre-order them right here.
  • Cirith Ungol got right back to work following the release of Forever Black just last year. A new EP, titled Half Past Human, is also set for a May 28th release through Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders can be snagged here, and the new single, “Brutish Manchild”, is available for streaming as well.
  • Carnation have announced “The Galaxy Sessions” virtual performance, scheduled for April 18th. The old school death metallers have team up with Belgium’s Galaxy Studio for the event, which is completely free. Here’s the event page for when the time comes.
  • Crimson Dimension are releasing their self-titled debut album on June 4th through Spread Evil Productions. Check out the new track, “Crimson Dimension”, immediately below. Almost 16 minutes of experimental black metal awesomeness.

CANTO: Machine Head, Vastum, Carnation, and More

Oh, the random things I get stuck doing.

  • Let’s start with the lineup changes over in the Machine Head camp. The Robb Flynn-fronted group welcomes new full-timers: drummer Matt Alston and guitarist Vogg Kiełtyka. You can catch them on the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour, if you feel so inclined… and also in Europe.
  • New music from VastumOrificial Purge drops on October 25th through 20 Buck Spin, but you can get a taste through the freshly-released “I On The Knife”. If it wasn’t clear, I’m looking forward to this album.
  • And our daily dose of sludge. Witch Ripper have announced a brief run of shows out west this month, as well as a new music video for “S.L.U. The Hive”. Enjoy.
  • Carnation dropped a new music video for “Plaguebreeder”. The footage was taken from their performance at this year’s Alcatraz Festival. Chapel of Abhorrence is out now on Season of Mist.
