CANTO: At The Gates, Hellfest 2022, Silver Lake, and More

I skipped the last couple days because I have family in town. But I didn’t work today so I can’t really justify skipping this one. Oh well… happy Friday!

  • Lots of videos to share today, so we may as well get right to it. We’ll kick things off with At The Gates, who released the new single and video for “The Fall Into Time”. That’s the latest from The Nightmare Of Being, which is out on July 2nd through Century Media.
  • Silver Lake by Esa Holopainen was recently released through Nuclear Blast. I haven’t checked it out in full yet, but I am intrigued by the new video for “Sentiment”, a track which features Jonas Renkse on vocals. And we all know how much I love projects that involve the Katatonia vocalist…
  • So we’ll pause all the video announcements to include a note about Hellfest 2022, which is probably the most immense festival I could fathom. The festival will span a full week, from June 17th through the 26th, with over 350 bands performing across 6 stages. Headliners include… Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, Faith No More… honestly the list goes on and on. And those are just the headliners. Get the full scoop here.
  • Hey look, Bullet for My Valentine is still a thing! They announced a new self-titled album, with a video for a new track titled “Knives”. That album will be out on October 22nd through Spinefarm Records, and can be pre-ordered here.
  • Time to wrap this up, because I have places to be. We’ll close with the new single and video from Carnifex for “Pray For Peace”, which you can watch below.

CANTO: Vulture, Dunk!festival, Epica, and More

It’s pouring out, and I still need to go for a run, but I am happy tomorrow is Friday.

  • Dunk!festival is going virtual for 2021, and will feature the likes of Amenra, Brutus, B R I Q U E V I L L E, and many more. The online edition takes place the weekend of May 13th (which is a Thursday, but you know what I mean). Even better news… the event is free!
  • Vildhjarta premiered a new track today, titled “När De Du Älskar Kommer Tillbaka Fran De Döda”. If I planned it right, it premiered less than an hour prior to this posting. That one is out through Century Media, and will be available on all streaming platforms tomorrow.
  • Epica have announced “Ωmega Alive”, their first universal streaming event. That is, obviously, in support of their new album, and is scheduled for June 12th. Get your tickets and merch bundles here. And if you need help making a decision, you can also check out this trailer.
  • Vulture is dropping a new album on May 21st titled Dealin’ Death, and today they released a new video for “Star-Crossed City”, taken from that album. The album will be out through Metal Blade, and the video is available for your viewing pleasure immediately below.

CANTO: Gojira, Boris, Hideous Divinity, and More

My ambitions to acquire and build out a camper van are above 0%.

  • We should probably start with Gojira, who released another new track from Fortitude. This one is titled “The Chant”, and it is sure to be polarizing. Naturally, I love it. Anyway, that album is officially released to the world this coming Friday, April 30th.
  • Boris are releasing a visual (streaming) party for the release of NO. The viewing period start on May 1st and will run through the 10th. The video was shot with a 360 degree camera, making this thing pretty damn immersive. A tour “in your head”, as it’s described. Here’s the link to the Boris YouTube channel, for when the time comes.
  • I’m just going to drop this in because anything “Alien” makes me happy. Hideous Divinity released a new EP, LV-426, this past Friday (frustratingly NOT on 4/26) though Century Media, and it’s very much worth checking out. There’s also a video for “Chestburst” out there as well. See? All kinds of “Alien” stuff.
  • I suppose we can wrap up with some more melodic metal. This is the new video (as of last Friday) from Dead Atlantic for “Falling into the Grave”. That track is taken from Lost, which drops this year through Zombie Shark Records.
