CANTO: Borknagar, Insomnium, Dark Funeral, and More

insomnium8.31.5

I’m running a half marathon in three days. I’m probably going to half try to do well.

  • Updates from Borknagar today. Their next studio album, titled True North, will be out on September 27th via Century Media. Very much a reason to be excited.
  • More reasons to be excited? Insomnium. They announced today that their 8th studio album will be out on October 4th, also through Century Media. I don’t have a title for this one yet. Also, a European headlining tour starting the following month.
  • In today’s edition of “LOL WUT?”, Dark Funeral had a bunch of their stage costumes and armor stolen out of a vehicle. Truthfully, this sucks and people are the god damn worst. But also, really? Did they know what they were stealing, and somehow had a definitive use for it? Very interesting. Anyway, if you know something, say something.
  • Should we wrap up this Wednesday up with a little black metal? Sure, why not? This is Cultus Profano with “Under the Infernal Reign, Op. 10”. This is taken from their 2018 release Sacramentum Obscurus. Honestly, this is pretty solid… and who knew black metal like this was emerging from LA?

Embracing the Descent: May 19 – 25, 2019

EMBRACING TEMP LOGO

Welcome back to another edition of Embracing the Descent and another opportunity to catch some fire from this week’s incoming metal. At this point we’re pretty sure you got it but for a recap: if it’s your first visit, we briefly discuss a handful of the current week’s new releases that stood out for whatever reason and maybe, from time to time, a week behind. We won’t be hitting everything because a 40 – 60 entry piece ain’t happening and who’s got that kind of time anyway. Let’s jump in and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent. Continue reading
