CANTO: Fallujah, Dawn of Ouroboros, Final Light, and More

I know, I know. I’m late for these more often than not. Deal with it.

  • Dawn of Ouroboros have signed on with Prosthetic Records, and have promptly unveiled a new music video for “Sorrow’s Eclipse”. That track is taken from their debut album, The Art of Morphology, which dropped back in 2020.
  • Mörk Gryning, the Swedish black metal project that dates back to 1993, are about to embark on their first U.S. tour. The dates run from April 28th through May 9th, and they’ll be joined by Arsantiqva, The Noctambulant, and Promethean Horde on select dates.
  • A new project formed from the minds of Perturbator and Cult of Luna‘s Johannes Persson, titled Final Light. The one-time project are releasing their self-titled album on June 24th through Red Creek. Listen to “In The Void” right now.
  • Blackened doom trio Behold! The Monolith are releasing a new album, From The Fathomless Deep, on July 15th through Ripple Music. Check out a new single, “Crown/The Immeasurable Void” right now.
  • Closing out our Wednesday, we have new material from Fallujah, which is something I haven’t been able to say in awhile. The video for “Radiant Ascension” is below, a track taken from Empyrean, their new album set for a September 9th release through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: King Diamond, Atreyu, Khemmis, and More

I got nothing. Well, nothing except loads and loads of tour announcements.

  • Most significantly, King Diamond, who announced a new album and tour today. The album, which will mark the first studio album in about 12 years, will be called The Institute. It won’t be released until sometime next year but we can expect a new single in the next few months it appears. And the tour. Holy crap the tour. They are November and December dates in North America, and support is in the form of Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and Idle Hands. This is absolutely incredible.
  • And then we have Khemmis and UnI would love to make this show happen as well, however those dates are specifically out west this coming December.
  • And then there’s Atreyu, who are going to hit the road in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band. Definitely not my realm of interest, but the idea behind this tour is cool; they are going to perform 20 songs, and those 20 songs were chosen by their fans. Those are U.S. dates in October and November with Whitechapel, He Is Legend, Tempting Fate, and Santa Cruz.
  • Now that (most) of today’s tour announcements are out of the way, let’s close with a little post-black metal. This comes from a band called Dawn of Ouroboros and the song is called “Sorrow’s Eclipse”. This track was pulled from their upcoming new album, The Art of Morphology. I’m into this. Check it out.
