CANTO: Napalm Death, Doyle, Twitching Tongues, and More

Napalm Death band 2017

2/12/2018. Two day hangovers are THE WORST.

  • Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper have given us a couple new songs to kick off this week. “Warning” and “Dead Inside”, respectively. Their split LP will be out March 2nd through Relapse.
  • Doyle has announced a 2018 world tour. It’s called the As We Die World Abomination Tour. It covers a lot of territory in the US and UK between now and mid-April. I’ll pass, but that’s just me.
  • How about another new track? This one from Napalm Death. We haven’t mentioned them in awhile. “Oh So Pseudo” from Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs, out March 30th.
  • Screw it. One more. Twitching Tongues have also released a new single today. It’s called “Kill For You”. Their new album, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, will be out March 9th. Check it out below, if you’re into that kinda thing.

  • Century Media turned 30. To celebrate, you can hop on over to their store and buy some sick 30th anniversary swag. If you’re into that.
  • Accuser have released a new lyric video for “Time For Silence” ahead of the release of The Mastery, which drops on January 26th.
  • Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper are releasing a split on March 2nd. Even better news? You can hear a new song from each in the preceding links.
  • White Wizzard have also released a new lyric video for “Infernal Overdrive”. Check it out below. The new album drops Friday, January 12th, and these guys will be hitting the road basically now. So, ya know, timing and stuff.

9C 2017 EOY Header Image

As I’ve probably mentioned here before, I love EP’s and demos almost as much as I love full albums.  There’s something about the condensed goodness, coupled with my ever dwindling attention span, that makes me wish these little gems got their own recognition sometimes when it comes to year-end lists.  You have to be the change you want to see in the world though, right?  So here it is then: my list of favorite shorter releases from this year.

Behemoth

May 9, 2017

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.
