CANTO: Children of Bodom, Amaranthe, Angel Witch, and More

childrenofbodom2019

Friday Canto! What a treat! This truly is the best of times.

  • A whole lot of change is coming for Children of Bodom. It was announced today that the final show with the current line up will be in Helsinki on December 15th. Jaska Raatikainen (drums), Henkka Blacksmith (bass), and Janne Wirman (keyboards) will all be stepping away at the end of the year. Whoa.
  • Emmure is back with a new track called “Pigs Ear”. Give it a listen if you feel so inclined for some reason. Emmure is also touring with As I Lay Dying and After The Burial the next couple months, just in case you needed another reason to roll your eyes.
  • Amaranthe have announced a North American tour with Battle Beast and Seven Spires in 2020. These dates are actually a ways out. We’re talking August and September, mostly.
  • Angel Witch celebrated the release of their latest album, Angel Of Light, with a new music video for the track “Death From Andromeda”. It rips. That album is out today on Metal Blade Records.

“Oh take me where, the hockey players, face off down the rink. And the Stanley Cup, is all filled up, for the champs who win the drink. Now the final flick, of a hockey stick, and the one gigantic scream. ‘The puck is in! The home team wins!’, the good ol’ hockey game.”

“In the night of full moon sacrifice, we are joining with the sign of drums of war. Freezing moon opens the gates of paradise, our swords are raised up to the skies.”

I can’t promise how consistent these will be this week. The last week in the year always gets a little weird for me.

I like those guys. I really do.

I’ll be honest, this is probably going to be the last one of these for the week. So let’s make it count! Or not.
