CANTO: Carach Angren, Osi and the Jupiter, Within Temptation, and More

WithinTemptation.3.3.19.103

“They spoke of the loneliest shadow, a thousand year old enemy. When man bowed for souls of the new world, a thousand year old legacy.”

  • Osi and the Jupiter have announced that July 31st will be the release date of the new Appalachia EP through Eisenwald. Needless to say, this is one I will be picking up… and FITM nostalgia is only, like, 10% of the reason.
  • Carach Angren have released their third new single from their upcoming album, Franckensteina Strataemontanus,  which drops on June 26th through Season of Mist. Check out “Operation Compass” right here.
  • We’ll close with a couple new videos, because that just sounds fun. The first is from Within Temptation, for a new track called “Entertain You”. You can check that out here. Side note, you should be happy that I didn’t work a pun into this bit of news.
  • And finally, a new lyric video from Green Carnation for “Sentinels”. In case you haven’t checked out Leaves of Yesteryear yet, it’s very good. And it’s out now through Season of Mist.
