CANTO: Cradle of Filth, Enslaved, In Flames, and More

InFlames.3.3.19.144

  • 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.

CANTO: Batushka, Cradle of Filth, and Nailed to Obscurity

First Canto of 2019! Hope you all enjoyed the holiday season! Just kidding. No I don’t.

  • Oh, Batushka. I remember that thing. Sorta. Anyway, looks like there was some kind of a lineup split and… it didn’t go well.
  • Iggy Azalea wore a Cradle of Filth shirt in an Instagram post. Why is this news? Because she wore THAT Cradle of Filth shirt. CoF was entertained, as am I.
  • Manowar have announced a new guitarist for obvious reasons. Whatever. Some people probably care. I 100% do not.
  • Nailed To Obscurity have released a new music video for “Tears Of The Eyeless”. It’s quite good. Their new album, Black Frost, will be out on January 11th.

CANTO: Cradle of Filth, The Crown, Astronoid, and Dead

I bought a lot of sharp objects today. That is all.

  • Cradle of Filth announced the second leg of their “Cryptoriana” tour. Well, specifically called “Cryptoriana – The Second Coming Of Vice World Tour 2019”. So jump on that if it rolls through your town. Tickets go on sale Friday.
  • The Crown are releasing reissues of Crowned In Terror, Crowned Unholy, and Possessed 13. They’ll be out January 11th for those interested.
  • Oh, this is probably worth mentioning. Interested in owning a piece of black metal history? Well, a fragment of Dead’s skull can be yours for a slim $3,500.00. Yes, you can literally own a piece of the deceased Mayhem vocalist (accompanied by a letter from Euronymous dated in 1991, five days after Dead’s suicide). Crazy and WEIRD.
  • Big news from Astronoid today. Their second, self-titled, full length album will be out February 1st through Blood Music. You can catch them on tour early next year with Between The Buried and Me and Tesseract. For now, however, you can check out a new song called “I Dream In Lines.”
