I’m very tired. Let’s see what lurks in the inbox on this fine Monday.
- Amorphis and Dimmu Borgir have announced an awesome co-headlining tour. The bad news? Only European dates so far – and there aren’t even many of those. Still, if your schedule allows it, you should dabble. Oh, and did I mention Wolves In The Throne Room will be supporting? Yeahhhhh.
- In other tour news, Rotting Christ have had to back out of their performance at Psycho Las Vegas due to issues obtaining work visas. Shit happens. Not an easy process and changing band members only makes it more challenging. The blame, however, was directed entirely at the band and label by the festival team. From their account, they claim RC/Season of Mist waited way too long to submit their applications. The label owner responded with very good points. It’s all very dramatic.
- In today’s random news, you can see the Slayer logo on NASCAR driver JJ Yeley’s car this weekend. Honestly, it’s a collaboration that kinda makes sense. Regardless, I’m not a NASCAR fan, so I’m going to forget about this basically as soon as I finish typing it.
- Next month, specifically September 13th, Winterfylleth will be releasing a live album/DVD through Candlelight called The Siege of Mercia. The footage was taken from their performance at Bloodstock back in 2017. For a preview, check out their performance of “The Swart Raven” below. This is awesome, but I really really need to see them live eventually.
