CANTO: Gojira, Dawn Ray’d, Culted, and More

We got tours!

  • We’ll start with Gojira, since they are fresh off the release of Fortitude and all. They’ve got a handful of headlining dates here in the United States this coming September and October, which does include a couple festival appearances. Tickets go on sale Friday, and you know I’ll be ready to jump on that.
  • Dawn Ray’d have announced a two-track EP, Wild Fire, set for a May 7th release with Prosthetic Records. It features two versions of the same track, and “Wild Fire I” is streaming over at Decibel.
  • And the second tour I wanted to highlight today is headlined by Beartooth. Those are August and September dates, with support from Wage War and Dragged Under. Tickets go on sale Friday as well. And while you’re at it, you may as well pre-order Below, which is out June 25th via Red Bull Records.
  • Couple noteworthy items out of Season of Mist to start the week with. First, they announced that the horror metal act Opera Diabolicus have been added to their roster. Their sophomore album, Death on a Pale Horse, will be out later this year at some point.
  • And then we have a new video from Culted for “Crush My Soul”, which we will round things out with. That Godflesh cover is taken from Nous, which dropped back in February. Pick it up here if you hadn’t already done so.

CANTO: Enslaved, Dawn Ray’d, Ensiferum, and More

“A hammer not for building, but for breaking the glass. For bending the passion of days to the deeper will.”

  • Enslaved have announced a cinematic summer tour. In coordination with three different festivals, Enslaved will present three different shows on July 30th, August 20th, and September 30th. I plan on witnessing… all of them.
  • Dawn Ray’d are planning a limited edition release of Behold Sedition Plainsong, with proceeds benefiting Refugee Rescue. It will be available this coming Friday through Bandcamp (a day when Bandcamp is also waiving all fees).
  • In case you wanted the full lineup of Record Store Day releases coming our way in a few months, you can find everything here. I’ve got my eye on a couple of things, but we’ll see what happens.
  • We previously shared Ensiferum‘s new track “Rum, Women, Victory”, and now we have a video to accompany it that features fan-submitted content. Thalassic drops on July 10th through Metal Blade Records.
