CANTO: Metallica, Cattle Decapitation, DevilDriver, and More

I’m running my fifth marathon on Sunday. Yay?

  • Big news from Metallica, regarding 2020 plans at least. They will be headlining five U.S. festivals next summer, and are planning on performing two nights at each of them. Holy moly. Those festivals are: Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival, Louder Than Life, Aftershock, Epicenter, and Welcome to Rockville.
  • So this is hilarious. Cattle Decapitation had their artwork for Death Atlas (out 11/29) ripped off by rapper Teddy.YG. Like, bad. As in, Mr. YG didn’t even remove the Cattle Decap logo or album title or anything… just… layered his name over it. In a fun turn of events, Cattle Decapitation then decided to sell a shirt with the image and Instagram exchange on it. Honestly, this is must-have.
  • In some serious bummer news, DevilDriver had to pull out of their upcoming Megacruise performance because Dez Fafara’s wife has been diagnosed with cancer. He’s taking the time to be with her, very much understandably. Positive vibes their way.
  • And closing with a bit of a lighter note, The Amity Affliction have released a live video for the new single “All My Friends Are Dead”. They are currently touring with Sum 41.

Behemoth

May 9, 2017

Good morning. It’s been a minute. But now that school and final exams are done for the semester, it’s time, once again, to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off with something I know will make our Literati Overlord happy, Behemoth frontman Nergal revealed that the band has started writing the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist. Unfortunately, we’ll likely have to wait ’til late 2018 to hear it.
