CANTO: Animals As Leaders, Mizmor, Carnation, and More

Last one this week. Probably not… let’s be real.

  • Animals As Leaders have (finally) announced a new album. Parrhesia is set for a March 25th release through Sumerian Records, their first since 2016. Pre-orders are up here, and be sure to check out the video for the new track, “The Problem of Other Minds, here.
  • We’ll move onto the news I’m most excited about today. Mizmor is releasing a new album on January 14th through Gilead Media titled Wit’s End, which will include exactly two tracks… both of which will be inevitably massive. Pre-order it here.
  • I love me some Moon Tooth, so here’s some of that. They released an acoustic version of “Nymphaeaceae”, a track that was originally released back in October. It’s expectedly great in either form.
  • And we’re going to close out with a couple items from the Season of Mist camp. First is Cynic, who dropped a new track and drum play-through, titled “In a Multiverse Where Atoms Sing”. That is, of course, taken from Ascension Codes, which is out a week from tomorrow.
  • Finally, we have the new live video from Carnation for “Napalm Ascension”. That comes from the physical release of their Galaxy Studio Sessions performance, which can be pre-ordered here. That one is set for a January 7th release.

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.
