CANTO: Act of Denial, Cradle of Filth, Dreamshade, and More

Anybody else just… not feeling it today? God damn.

  • Cradle of Filth have postponed their live stream event to May 12th. To be honest, I don’t even remember what date it was originally scheduled for, but it sounds like the postponement was due to new album business. Get your tickets here, and keep an eye out for Existence Is Futile later this year.
  • Act of Denial released a new single today, titled “Slave”, which features ex-Soilwork guitarist Pete Wichers. The supergroup’s debut album, Negative, is set for a release sometime later this year through Crusader Records.
  • Vincent Crowley released the first song and lyric video, “La Muerte”, from his upcoming Odium Records release. Beyond Acheron is set for a June release, so we’re still a few months out from that one.
  • I’m not entirely sure what a Dreamshade is, but that sounds like a good video to close with. Check out the clip for “Safe Harbour” immediately below, and be sure to scoop up A Pale Blue Dot, which is out now.

CANTO: Skindred, Toxic Ruin, Cradle of Filth, and More

This week has been quietly gnarly. At least tomorrow is the day before Friday? Is that a weird perspective?

  • Cradle of Filth have announced a live stream event on Halloween, performed in St. Mary’s Church. This sounds… delightful. Get your tickets here. Side note: how is Halloween already a topic of discussion again? What a strange year.
  • Clayman turned 20 today, and we all know In Flames celebrated the occasion with an anniversary edition of the record, complete with a few re-recordings. One of which was “Only For The Weak”. Say what you will about the new version, but this video hits me in all the nostalgic feels.
  • Four Stroke Baron released a cover of Post Malone’s “Broken Whiskey Glass”, which sounds like a fun thing to include on a Friday. That’s one in a string of covers featured on the upcoming Monoqueen, which drops on September 25th through Prosthetic Records.
  • So the latest Enslaved single, “Urjotun”, sure is something. Still an amazing something, obviously. The release of Utgard is getting closer… October 2nd through Nuclear Blast.

Profile: Multitalented Gothic Metaller Lindsay Schoolcraft

Lindsay Schoolcraft

Lindsay Schoolcraft is a name that any Cradle of Filth fan will instantly recognize due to her intense vocal and multi-instrumental contributions or maybe from the classical/black metal ensemble Antiqva or possibly from the Belzebubs comic and subsequent album. Wherever the name rings a bell from, there’s no doubt she’s been extremely busy. Add to all that, her solo full length debut, Marytr, just dropped earlier this week and based on the dark and brooding gothic undertones coupled with those soaring vocals (no surprise there), life is about to get even busier. We recently shared our Profile questions with Schoolcraft to get some background info so head below to see how it went down and be sure to grab a copy from the links contained within.
