CANTO: Cloak, Oak, Ahab, and More


Man, the gloomy weather the last three days has really messed up my vibe.

  • Anyway. To better things. Imperial Triumphant, Cloak, and Couch Slut are touring together early next year here in the U.S. With that announcement, Cloak also offered an update on their next album. Their third full-length should be out in the first half of the year through Season of Mist, and you’ll be able to hear some new material during this tour.
  • Ahab are releasing The Coral Tombs on January 13 through Napalm Records, and today they shared the music video for “Colossus Of The Liquid Graves”. It’s a beast. Their fifth studio album will mark their first full-length in eight years, so we should all have this one circled heading into the new year.
  • Fvnerals presented the second single from Let the Earth Be Silent, titled “Ashen Era”. Give that a listen here. That new album, by the way, is out on February 3 through Prophecy Productions.
  • We’ll close out Wednesday with another new track out of the Season of Mist camp. Oak is releasing Disintegrate on February 10, and today they unveiled “Disintegrate I”. Give the video for that track a watch below. I’ve gone through it a couple of times, and I’m obsessed. Just saying.

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.
