CANTO: In Flames, Lacuna Coil, Defleshed, and More

In a complete RKO outta nowhere, the album I most anticipate this year might be Lorna Shore’s Pain Remains? Anyway…

CANTO: The Black Dahlia Murder, Lorna Shore, Woods of Desolation, and More

Routine chaos is basically my perpetual state of existence at this point.

  • The Black Dahlia Murder are forging ahead, following the passing of Trevor Strnad. On October 28th they’ll be performing at Saint Andrew’s Hall as a celebration of the life and legacy of the beloved vocalist, with Brian Eschbach behind the microphone. Joining them will be Plague Years and Darkest Hour, making for what will be a truly memorable event.
  • Atmospheric black metal project Woods of Desolation revealed that a new full-length, The Falling Tide, is set for a December 9th release through Season of Mist, their debut with the label. Give the title-track for that effort a listen here.
  • And then a couple Century Media happenings to round things out. Technical thrash group Vektor have signed on to a worldwide deal with the label, where they’ll release their fourth studio album at some point next year. We’ll stay tuned as that all unfolds.
  • And then a month out of the release date for Pain Remains, Lorna Shore revealed a video for “Pain Remains I: Dancing Like Flames”, and that’s how we’re going to end the day. As a reminder, that album will be available through Century Media.

CANTO: Suicide Silence, Constellatia, Bones, and More

An early afternoon draft because life is still upside down.

  • I guess we can start by checking out the new Queensrÿche. Give “Behind The Walls” a listen and watch here, a track taken from the upcoming new album Digital Noise Alliance. That one drops on October 7th through Century Media.
  • I suppose we can mix things up with some metalcore today. Check out the latest from Currents, titled “The Death We Seek”. That’s available through SharpTone Records.
  • This is something I wasn’t previously familiar with. South African progressive black metallers Constellatia are releasing their sophomore full-length on November 11th through Season of Mist, titled Magisterial Romance. With that announcement, the first single, “Adorn”, is available now.
  • Chicago extreme metal outfit Bones are releasing their fourth album, Vomit, on October 28th through Disorder Recordings. Here’s a preview clip. The release show they’re hosting on the 29th at Reggie’s looks like a ton of fun as well.
  • Suicide Silence premiered a new track today, titled “You Must Die”. That single is available for purchase here, and you can watch the music video for it below.

CANTO: Stormruler, Lacuna Coil, Clutch, and More


The new Soilwork is awesome. Chris wrote a whole review about it. Read it.

  • Lacuna Coil are releasing Comalies XX, a remade version of their iconic 2002 album marking its anniversary. That will be out on October 14th through Century Media, and a clip for “Tight Rope XX” is available here.
  • Clutch is popular, so we’ll jump there next. They unveiled a new single and video, titled “Slaughter Beach”, which can be viewed here. That track, naturally, is taken from Sunrise On Slaughter Beach, which drops one month from today through Weathermaker.
  • Labyrinth of Stars, the new project featuring members of Valborg and Lantlôs, are streaming a new track over at Brooklyn Vegan titled “Dissolving Into The Eternal Nothingness”. That’s the latest from their debut album, Spectrum Xenomorph, which drops on September 30th through Translation Loss.
  • We’re going to close with something I’ve been anticipating for a bit now, and that is the latest from Stormruler. Their new album, Sacred Rites & Black Magick is set for an October 14th release through Napalm Records. Check out the video for the title track here. It rules.

CANTO: Distant, Stoned Jesus, Vananidr, and More


This is a rushed post because I have things to do tonight, so my apologies for any clumsiness in advance.

  • We’ll start with the latest addition to the Century Media roster. Distant have announced their new deal with the label, and are marking the occasion with a new track titled “Exofilth”. Give it a listen here, and let’s keep an eye out for future album news.
  • Fucked Up are releasing a new EP on October 7th through Trankcrimes, titled Oberon. The four track collection can be pre-ordered here, but “Strix” has been available for a couple weeks now. So, you know, have at it and stuff.
  • Need some black metal in your Monday? Check out the latest from Vananidr. Beneath The Mold drops on October 28th through Black Lion Records, and a new track titled “Awake” can be streamed early here.
  • Ukrainian sludge rock trio Stoned Jesus shared a new track, titled “CON”, and that’s how we’re going to end the day. That sample is taken from Fatherlight, which will be released at some point next year… through Season of Mist, I anticipate.
