Last Canto of the week. Tomorrow will find me lakeside with a bunch of idiots I call my friends.
Fit For An Autopsy have announced a winter 2022 headlining tour, with support from Enterprise Earth, Ingested, Signs of the Swarm, and Great American Ghost. Those dates kick off January 5th and run through February 12th. Tickets are available here.
Watain, a band I don’t really care about but a lot of other people do, have signed on with Nuclear Blast. As of now, they’ve begun the recording process for a new album, which we can expect sometime in early 2022.
Marc Rizzo has been busy, and revealed a new project today titled Hail The Horns. Get a sample of what’s to come with this lyric video for “God Of Thunder”, a cover of the Kiss classic. But wait, there’s more! Rizzo also has a new solo ‘best of’ album dropping on September 10th, titled Living Shred Vol. 1. That will be out through Godsize Records.
I’m getting more and more excited about Primordial Arcana, the latest album from Wolves in the Throne Room. So we’re going to wrap up today with the new video for “Primal Chasm (Gift of Fire). That album drops on August 20th through Relapse Records.
Dang, whole lotta stuff to go through in the inbox this evening. Weird.
We’ll lead off with a tour (maybe two), because monitoring those will be interesting for the next several months I think. Lorna Shore have a number of U.S. dates lined up in September and October, with support from Enterprise Earth, Sentinels and Crown Magnitar. Tickets can be purchased here.
Los Angeles extreme metal crew Teeth unveiled a nasty new single today. “Dreamless Hieroglyphs” is streaming over at Invisible Oranges, a track taken from Finite. That new album is set for a November 26th release through Translation Loss Records, in case you needed a reminder.
Progressive stoner rock band Ealdor Bealu have signed on with Metal Assault Records, and are planning a new album release in early 2022. Better yet, they’ve also announced a new run of shows, scheduled from September 30th through October 9th. All on that other coast, unfortunately for me.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Rammstein lately (see also: always), so here’s a cover of “Sonne” as presented by Black Satellite. Check it out below. Seriously though… I’m curious what people think of it.
“Army of liberation, gunpoint indoctrination. The fires of sedation fulfill the prophecy.”
Album news from Uada, which I’m always excited for. Their next release, Djinn, will be out on September 25th through Eisenwald. That will mark their third full-length, following the success of 2016’s Cult of a Dying Sun. You can check out the title-trackright now.
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
Leading off, longtime Amorphis bassist Niclas Etelävuori has left the band, citing not issues with his bandmates, but rather, issues with alleged mismanagement. The band has recruited original bassist Olli-Pekka Laine to fill in for their upcoming summer festival commitments.
