CANTO: Sanguisugabogg, Cattle Decapitation, Dryad, and More


I can’t wait to watch my favorite hockey team lose again tonight.

  • I haven’t heard from Heaven Shall Burn in awhile, so let’s start there. Their new digital single, “Pillars of Serpents”, will be featured on a 7″ split with Trivium. If you happen to be across the pond, you’ll be able to scoop that up during their upcoming tour.
  • Horrendous have completed work on their new album, which we should expect later this year from Season of Mist. While we await more details on that, they also have a couple of live dates next month, one in Brooklyn and one at Subterranean Dissonance Fest in Philly. Let’s not forget they’ll also be at Northwest Terror Fest in May. Killer.
  • Cattle Decapitation have revealed details surrounding their new album. Terrasite is set for a May 12th release through Metal Blade. We won’t get a new track until next month from the sounds of it, since this announcement wasn’t exactly, um, planned… get the full scoop here. Either way, I’m excited.
  • Sliding in some black metal, we have new stuff from Dryad to share. The title-track from their new album, The Abyssal Plain, was released today with an accompanying visualizer. Give that a watch here. That album drops on January 20th through Prosthetic Records.
  • Wrapping up, we have a gnarly new, very NSFW, video from Sanguisugabogg for “Face Ripped Off”. Homicidal Ecstasy is out on February 3rd through Century Media, and I know we’re all looking forward to it. More sentiments along those lines in the days ahead. For now… give the new flick a watch below.

CANTO: Amon Amarth, Dryad, Insanity Alert, and More


Another late running World Cup match, a beer, and no more work for the week. Yay.

CANTO: Tombs, Amon Amarth, Xenoglyph, and More


The work week before vacation always sucks, but what are ya gonna do?

  • The most obvious thing to open up with is the massive tour announcement featuring the likes of Amon Amarth, with Carcass, Obituary, and Cattle Decapitation. Those dates are in November and December, and tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
  • If you like trippy, psychedelic black metal, check out the latest from Xenoglyph. They’re streaming Spiritfraud in full over at Decibel (accompanied by an interview). That one is officially out Friday through Translation Loss.
  • Oceans Of Slumber covered “House Of The Rising Sun”, which is pretty dope. That track is featured on Starlight And Ash, which drops on July 22nd through Century Media. Check out that visualizer right here.
  • Withered added some dates over the next few months around their festival appearances. Get the full schedule here, and be sure to drop in on one of these shows if your calendar allows for it.
  • Tombs gave us new stuff today, and I really like Tombs, so that’s the note we’re going to end on. Check out “Murder Legendre” below, the final single from the Ex Oblivion EP. All those tracks will be available on your favorite streaming platform soon enough.

CANTO: Cattle Decapitation, Dark Tranquillity, The Halo Effect, and More

Go to a wedding, come back sick, get better, go to another wedding, come back sick, get better…

  • Cattle Decapitation have announced the “Death… At Last” tour with The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Extinction A.D., and Creeping Death. Those are U.S. dates beginning January 18th and running through February 20th. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday at this location.
  • And then we’ll jump over to Pelagic Records, where Som has announced the upcoming release of The Shape Of Everything. That drops on January 21st, and is available for preorder here. Check out the first track, “Animals”, right now at the previous link.
  • Cynic shared a preview of an upcoming new track, titled “Diamond Light Body”, through Season of Mist. That one is taken from Ascension Codes, which is out on November 26th and can be purchased here.
  • This came through yesterday but whatever. Dark Tranquillity are making their return to North America early next year with Kataklysm and Nailed To Obscurity. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday. They’ll be supporting Moment, a very good album… in case you needed a reminder.
  • We’re closing with the first single from The Halo Effect, and it’s titled “Shadowminds”. And I’m not gonna lie, I am really, really happy about it. That project recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast, but album details haven’t quite emerged yet. We’ll keep you posted.
