CANTO: Devin Townsend, Hinayana, Demon Hunter, and More

I took two days off last week because I felt like it.

  • Queen is going on tour with Adam Lambert following the release of Bohemian Rhapsody and not a single part of me is at all surprised.
  • Some of the guests on the new Devin Townsend record: Steve Vai, Chad Kroeger, Anneke Van Giersbergen, among others of course. Interesting.
  • Demon Hunter (which is a name I haven’t said in awhile) will drop two albums in March, War and Peace. I’m a little intrigued about what they will do with such a project.
  • You know who I really like? Hinayana. You know who dropped a new video today? Also Hinayana. It’s for “The Window” and it’s as awesome as I would have hoped. If I can get my junk together, I’ll be talking about this in more depth in the coming days.

    • Leading off, Septicflesh have announced their new album, Codex Omega, which will drop September 1 via Prosthetic Records. You can check out the new single, “Dante’s Inferno,” here. If you like Septicflesh, you should do that. If you don’t, this probably won’t change your mind. But good for them either way.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from over the weekend:

    • Iced Earth revealed the cover art for their upcoming album, Incorruptible, which drops June 16 on Century Media. Am I the only one that looked at this and thought of Theon vs. Ramsay on Game of Thrones?
