CANTO: Elder, Denouncement Pyre, Opeth, and More

Alright, after a few days away, we’re right back at it.

  • Denouncement Pyre, a favorite from years past, have a new album set for a June 17th release. Forever Burning will be available through Agonia Records. Pre-orders are available here.
  • This is a tour I will definitely check out. Elder are hitting the road in August and September with support from Dreadnought, Ruby The Hatchet, and Belzebong. All those dates can be found here, and I can say with confidence that I will either be at the Boston or Vermont date… or both.
  • Apparently Allegaeon is going to spend the entirety of 2022 on the road. Not a bad thing. The Terrestrial Takeover Tour, which was originally planned for 2020, will now cover June 1st through July 1st. Support will come from Arkaik, Aenimus, and Summoning The Lich.
  • Opeth are streaming a new track, “Width Of A Cirlce”, which is taken from the extended edition of In Cauda Venenum. That edition features three previously unreleased bonus tracks, in both English and Swedish. Cool stuff.
  • Any interest in checking out the entirety of the Crown performance for Roadburn Redux? Because now you can. The whole thing is available for your viewing pleasure below.

CANTO: Darkthrone, Drudkh, Abbath, and More

I’m actually going to a concert next week, and I’m already overthinking it immensely.

  • We’ll start with a thing I really wish I could go to. TRVE Brewing has announced their 10th anniversary concert, which features the likes of Khemmis, Panopticon, Dreadnought, and more. Those tickets go on sale at the end of the week.
  • Darkthrone is celebrating the 30th anniversary of A Blaze In The Northern Sky with a fresh, limited-edition, vinyl pressing through Peaceville. 666 copies will be released on June 24th. You can order it here, but I’m sure it’s already sold out. Edit: confirmed.
  • Keeping this short today, and rounding out with a couple items from Season of Mist. First, we have a new track from Abbath for “The Book of Breath”. You probably don’t need a reminder, but Dread Reaver is out on March 25th.
  • And we’ll wrap up Monday with the new video from Ukrainian black metallers Drudkh for “The Nocturnal One”. It’s worth noting that this release was moved up on the calendar as a sign of resistance. We’re with them, and all other Ukrainians. Slava Ukraini.

CANTO: Portrait, Spirit Adrift, Fire In The Mountains, and More

Well, I head out to California tomorrow and that’s a crazy concept to me.

  • Portrait have unveiled details surrounding a new album, titled At One with None. That will be out on September 3rd through Metal Blade Records, and you can check out the new single, “Phantom Fathomer”, right here.
  • Weedeater have announced the second leg of their 2021 U.S. tour. Those dates run from September 3rd through the 18th, and support will be in the form of The Atomic Bitchwax, Joe Buck Yourself, and Rebelmatic. Tickets can be acquired at this location.
  • Fire In The Mountains rolled out the first round of bands for the 2022 festival, which includes the likes of Eternal Champion, Obsequiae, Dreadnought, Haunter, Dbuk, and Ghosts of Glaciers. This is gonna be good. And I already have a ticket!
  • Spirit Adrift are releasing a new 3-song EP titled Forge Your Future on August 27th through Century Media. Pre-orders for that are available here, and you can check out the lyric video for the title track immediately below. What a great way to close a work week.
