CANTO: Exodus, Earth Rot, Final Coil, and More

exodus sdcc

I have emerged from the wilderness.

  • Exodus have announced a performance at SDCC, specifically on July 18th at the House of Blues. I like when comics and metal combine, even though I’m really not in tune with the former scene. So basically I like when metal and literally anything else combines, I suppose.
  • Earth Rot have signed to Season of Mist, and are planning a new album release later this year. No details behind that release have surfaced yet (that I am aware of), but this is still good news for the death metallers and I’m pumped about it.
  • Final Coil have revealed their new drummer as well as a mini-documentary video called “The Making Of ‘The World We Left Behind for Others'”. Yes, it is a mouthful.
  • Not exactly metal, but I’ve been vibing with this track since discovering it in the inbox this morning. This is Coyote Kid with the track/video “Femme Fatale.”

Good morning. It’s been a minute. But now that school and final exams are done for the semester, it’s time, once again, to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off with something I know will make our Literati Overlord happy, Behemoth frontman Nergal revealed that the band has started writing the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist. Unfortunately, we’ll likely have to wait ’til late 2018 to hear it.

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.
