CANTO: In Flames, Hellfest, Witches of Doom, and More

CMB_3236

These days are slowly (quickly?) killing my sanity.

  • Alright, so you all need to start your evening by watching members of Spirit Adrift, Mutoid Man, and High On Fire cover Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ In The Years”. I would like to thank Two Minutes To Late Night for bringing us that absolute gift.
  • Canceled or postponed tours don’t only hit bands hard financially, but also their road crews. To help support the folks that make the killer In Flames shows happen year in and year out, the band has decided to drop a new shirt to benefit them. 100% of the proceeds go directly to their crew. Solid stuff, In Flames, solid stuff.
  • Speaking of canceled things, Hellfest is the latest festival to bail on 2020. Scheduled for the weekend of June 19th, this year was supposed to mark the 15th anniversary of the festival, and feature the likes of Faith No More, Judas Priest, etc. Instead, for obvious reasons, the organizers will try again in 2021.
  • And we’ll close with a new lyric video from Witches of Doom for the track “Sister Fire.” That track is taken from Funeral Radio, which is out now on My Kingdom Music. Do what ya gotta do.

CANTO: Migration Fest 2020, The Black Dahlia Murder, System of a Down, and More

That superb owl wasn’t superb at all.

  • This came through last Friday but I was too busy doing mountain things. But… holy shit everyone this Migration Fest lineup is absurdBuried at Sea, Falls of Rauros, and Thou performing with Emma Ruth Rundle are the sets I’m most looking forward to. How about you?
  • The Black Dahlia Murder have announced an upcoming tour with Testament, Municipal Waste, and MeshiaakThose dates fall in April and May. I plan on doing everything I can to get to that one.
  • Faith No More, System of a Down, and Korn are teaming up to play a massive stadium show at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on May 22nd. Additional support will come from Russian Circles and Helmet. That is a pretty damn wild one-off show.
  • And we will wrap up with a new video from Northwind Wolves. This one is for “Lord of Winter and Death”. A little symphonic metal on a Monday afternoon, I suppose. Their latest, Mountains And Darkness, is out now through Black Lion Records.

CANTO: Faith No More, Necropsy, Dave Mustaine, and More

faith no more band

Tomorrow I should find out if I’m going to Germany next year.

  • Necropsy have released the first single, “Butcherado”, from an upcoming 4-song EP titled Exitus. If you want some death metal on a Tuesday night, I wouldn’t blame you. Have at it.
  • When I see updates from Dave Mustaine, I tend to stop all things and see what the latest is. Well, fortunately, I have another positive update to share. Here is the full interview, but the main thing to take away is that he had continued responding well to treatment. And that crazy amount of support is cool to see, as well.
  • Sorry, did you want some kind of follow up to that Faith No More hint from yesterday? Here you go. They return in 2020, to the tune of some festivals across the pond. Fret not, I’m sure there is more on the horizon as well.
  • In case you were interested in seeing Ozzy Osbourne perform with Post Malone, here you go. This is from his show in Inglewood on November 21st.
