CANTO: Dark Tranquillity, Snow Burial, Barishi, and More

Dark Tranquillity

Week two, reporting from the abyss.

  • Founding guitarist Niklas Sundin is stepping away from Dark Tranquillity. You can read his full post here, but it basically sounds like he wants to trade touring duties for family time, which I understand. It does sound like he will stay involved from a creative standpoint, which is pretty cool.
  • Snow Burial are planning a live stream to benefit The Greater Chicago Food Depository. The event will take place on March 26th at 8:00pm EST over at the Prosthetic Records Youtube Channel. Cool event, cool cause, we all win.
  • Like everyone else, Sebastian Bach has rescheduled the 2nd leg of his 30th anniversary tour for the album Skid Row. Those new dates have already be set, and they fall from late October through December.
  • Finally, we’ll close with the tasty new track from Barishi titled “The Silent Circle”. Their upcoming new album, Old Smoke, drops on April 24th through Season of Mist. Enjoy.

When it comes to concerts, I try to go to at least one a year. After all, in between school and other events, it becomes rather difficult to catch them sometimes. However, when I heard that Amorphis was coming into town with three other bands I was curious about but never really dealt with before, I knew I had to see them. Thus, I decided to do the only thing I was able to do: prepare myself for a night filled with music by listening to the four band’s latest albums in order to know what to expect.

Of the four, I am most familiar with Amorphis – I had seen them once before as support for Nightwish in early 2012 – so I was expecting a good time from these guys. Seeing the others was a bonus. Continue reading
