CANTO: Buildings, Behemoth, Yatra, and More

Behemoth 2018

New week, new me. Ok, that isn’t even remotely true. Metal news!

  • Buildings have announced some east coast tour dates with Bummer. Those dates run in February and March. There isn’t a date all that close to me unfortunately, but this is going to be a super fun tour for those that have the chance to check it out.
  • Yatra are lining up the release of their second album on January 31st. It will be called Blood of the Night and will be released through STB Records. You can stream a new track, titled “Blood Will Flow”, right now.
  • For those previously unaware, Volbeat and Clutch have some upcoming U.S. arena dates in April and May, and The Picturebooks will be in support. This should be a good time.
  • New music videos from Behemoth are always worth sharing. This one is for “Rom 5:8”. I haven’t watched it yet, but knowing the effort the Polish legends put into their video productions, I’m sure it’s as gloriously theatrical as always.

I almost spelled that as “Catno”. Wouldn’t that have been fun.

CANTO: Killswitch Engage, Insomnium, Bring Me The Horizon, and More

I didn’t expect to have time for this today. Yet, here I am…

  • Killswitch Engage guitarist Joel Stroetzel had to step away from the current tour to attend a family emergency. Of course, our thoughts are with the dude and we hope everything turns out ok on the home front. The band’s production manager, Josh Mihlek, will take over for the next couple shows.
  • Insomnium studio update! The melodic death metallers out of Finland are hard at work on their next album, which they expect to drop this coming fall. It has been a few years since Winter’s Gate was released, so I’m curious to see what direction they go in from there.
  • Bring Me The Horizon have been forced to cancel the remaining dates on their current U.S. tour. Frontman Oli Sykes ruptured his vocal chord and, well, that makes what he does a bit of a challenge. I’m not a BMTH fan by any means  (although I admittedly didn’t hate their set at Wacken 2014), but we still hope he recovers quickly.
  • Hey look, a new music video from Clutch. It’s for “Ghoul Wrangler” and it’s a lot of fun. K bye.

1/30/2018. The SOTU is tonight. Let’s all avoid that and drink instead, shall we?
