CANTO: Amon Amarth, Stratovarius, Massacre, and More

These work days are only a little bit fun. Which, I guess, is why my nights are spent doing this?

  • Break out the drinking horns. Amon Amarth has a new album on the horizon. The Great Heathen Army is out on August 5th through Metal Blade. And yes, we do have new material to share along with that news. Give “Get in the Ring” a listen here.
  • Symphonic metal veterans Stratovarius are also releasing a new album later this year, their first is almost a decade. Survive is set for a September 23rd through earMusic, and the title track can be heard now.
  • Out of Nuclear Blast, Massacre has announced a new EP. That’s generally a good thing, because more Massacre is always the correct amount. Anyway, Mythos is out on July 1st. Check out “Behind The Serpent’s Curse”, which features Anders Odden of Cadaver, right now.
  • New Cloak dates have been added to their 2022 schedule. These are June and July dates with Bewitcher, and you can get the full scoop here.
  • And we’re going to wrap up with the video for the new single from Municipal Waste titled “Electrified Brain”. That’s the title track from their new album, which drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.

At least it’s finally nice out and stuff. Mondays still suck.

CANTO: The Defaced, SepticFlesh, Midnight, and More

Each week seems to be slightly weirder than the last.

  • Midnight has their new album out today, Let There Be Witchery, so we’ll lead off with the new video for “Szex Witchery”. It’s a lot of fun, I promise. Anyway, their fifth full-length is out through Metal Blade, just in case you still need it.
  • Acid Witch and Cloak are hitting the road together this coming May, starting on the 9th in Chicago. I know a few fans of both projects that will certainly be in attendance.
  • SepticFlesh have a new album on the horizon. Modern Primitive is scheduled for a May 20th release through Nuclear Blast. The first single taken from their 11th album, “Hierophant”, is available here.
  • As long as Meshuggah keeps unveiling new material, I’m going to keep sharing it. “Light The Shortening Fuse” is the latest track taken from Immutable, which drops on April 1st through Atomic Fire.
  • And we’ll wrap up with the new video from The Defaced. Their new album, Charlatans, is also out today through Sound Pollution, and the new video for “Wreck” is immediately below.

“Heat… night devour me… repeat… repetition.”

  • Let’s kick Wednesday off with Goat Torment. The Belgian blackened death metal outfit are releasing their third full-length, Forked Tongues, on October 29th through Season of Mist Underground Activists. Give the title track a listen right here.
  • Hey! Another Season of Mist thing! Cloak are back in the studio, recording their third full-length. That’s an album we should expect next year at some point. But let’s also take this moment to remind everyone that they will be on tour with Demiser in October and November.
  • All That Remains are celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Fall of Ideals with a reissue. It’s set to release on November 12th on vinyl, with an accompanying tour and documentary. Pre-order it here. Side note: I can’t stand anything ATR these days for a number of reasons, but this album fucks.
  • Eternity’s End have signed on with Prosthetic Records, and have announced a new album. Embers of War is set for a November 26th release, and you can check out a guitar playthrough for the new song “Arcturus Prime” over at Gear Gods.
  • And we’ll wrap up the day with a new video and live album announcement from Armored Saint. Symbol of Salvation Live will be out on October 22nd through Metal Blade, and the live clip for the title track can be found below. Enjoy.
