CANTO: Shape of Despair, Ceremonial Castings, Vincent Crowley, and More

Another day down, two more until vacation.

  • We’ll lead off with Shape of Despair, who premiered a new track today. The funeral doom veterans are releasing their new full-length, Return to the Void, on February 25th through Season of Mist. The newest track, “Dissolution”, is available for streaming here.
  • Archspire are premiering the Bleed the Future studio documentary. That takes place tomorrow, December 22nd, at 2:00 PM EST. That will give a behind the scenes look at the making of their new album. That should be a good time, so check it out.
  • In case you weren’t aware, I’ll remind you that The Lonely Ones are hitting the road next month, following a couple dates with Sevendust this month. And then they have more dates in April! So yeah, busy first half of 2022 for them. Should be good.
  • Ceremonial Castings are releasing the 25th anniversary double-album Our Journey Through Forever on February 25th through Eisenwald. To pass a little bit of time, hear the brand new recording of “Immortal Black Art” here.
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Vincent Crowley for “Masquerade Du Macabre”. That’s taken from the debut album, which dropped back in May through Odium Records.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
