CANTO: Gojira, Dawn Ray’d, Culted, and More

We got tours!

  • We’ll start with Gojira, since they are fresh off the release of Fortitude and all. They’ve got a handful of headlining dates here in the United States this coming September and October, which does include a couple festival appearances. Tickets go on sale Friday, and you know I’ll be ready to jump on that.
  • Dawn Ray’d have announced a two-track EP, Wild Fire, set for a May 7th release with Prosthetic Records. It features two versions of the same track, and “Wild Fire I” is streaming over at Decibel.
  • And the second tour I wanted to highlight today is headlined by Beartooth. Those are August and September dates, with support from Wage War and Dragged Under. Tickets go on sale Friday as well. And while you’re at it, you may as well pre-order Below, which is out June 25th via Red Bull Records.
  • Couple noteworthy items out of Season of Mist to start the week with. First, they announced that the horror metal act Opera Diabolicus have been added to their roster. Their sophomore album, Death on a Pale Horse, will be out later this year at some point.
  • And then we have a new video from Culted for “Crush My Soul”, which we will round things out with. That Godflesh cover is taken from Nous, which dropped back in February. Pick it up here if you hadn’t already done so.

CANTO: Gojira, Boris, Hideous Divinity, and More

My ambitions to acquire and build out a camper van are above 0%.

  • We should probably start with Gojira, who released another new track from Fortitude. This one is titled “The Chant”, and it is sure to be polarizing. Naturally, I love it. Anyway, that album is officially released to the world this coming Friday, April 30th.
  • Boris are releasing a visual (streaming) party for the release of NO. The viewing period start on May 1st and will run through the 10th. The video was shot with a 360 degree camera, making this thing pretty damn immersive. A tour “in your head”, as it’s described. Here’s the link to the Boris YouTube channel, for when the time comes.
  • I’m just going to drop this in because anything “Alien” makes me happy. Hideous Divinity released a new EP, LV-426, this past Friday (frustratingly NOT on 4/26) though Century Media, and it’s very much worth checking out. There’s also a video for “Chestburst” out there as well. See? All kinds of “Alien” stuff.
  • I suppose we can wrap up with some more melodic metal. This is the new video (as of last Friday) from Dead Atlantic for “Falling into the Grave”. That track is taken from Lost, which drops this year through Zombie Shark Records.

Initial Descent: April 25 – May 1, 2021

I don’t know about you but the live show wait has nearly come to a sudden stop with the announcement of Deicide hitting the road AND coming near me. As far as this show goes, August can’t come soon enough and if any of you are near or somewhat near the ATL, hit me up. Alrighty, we’re back, again, for another installment of “what’s new and exciting this week.” Answer: plenty. Goregäng return from the crypts of death with a few new tracks and a few live tracks, everyone’s favorite hard hitters Gojira offer up album number seven—finally, Mortifero cover that dark folk space I love so much, and ewïg frost continue their reign of beer swillin’, liquor shooting, excellent speed metal. And that’s just the start of a lengthy list that follows. So, hop to it.

CANTO: Roadburn Redux, Gojira, Hideous Divinity, and More

The NHL trade deadline is always a weird day.

  • Ok, let’s start with Roadburn Redux news. There were a few more lineup announcements, but the biggest thing shared today is the full festival schedule. Thursday/Friday are just around the corner, and there’s a certain set that I plan ending my work week with. What does everyone else have circled so far?
  • Oh look, another new Gojira track. Check out the lyric video for “Into The Storm“, the latest taken from Fortitude. I haven’t listened to this one yet, but I will say that April 30th release date suddenly feels somewhat close, and I am quite excited.
  • Hideous Divinity have released the second single from their new EP, LV-426. That effort is set for an April 23rd release through Century Media Records, and can be pre-ordered here. As for that new single, it’s titled “Chestburst”, and you can check out the video at this location.
  • And we’ll close with the new track from Myronath titled “Evigt Mörker”. That one is taken from their upcoming new album, Djevelkraft, which will be out through Hellstain Productions sometime in the near future. Not sure exactly when, I didn’t look very hard.
