CANTO: Alcest, GWAR, Enslaved, and More

If I listen to anything but The Ocean and Enslaved the rest of the year, it will be a freaking miracle.

  • In celebration of the album’s 10th anniversary, Alcest are reissuing Écailles De Lune on December 18th. You can pre-order it here, and I gotta say it looks absolutely stunning. Being my favorite Alcest album, I may need to jump on this.
  • And as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Scumdogs of the Universe, GWAR have announced a streaming event on October 30th. “Scumdogs XXX Live” should be quite the spectacle. Tickets can be acquired here.
  • Speaking of Enslaved, they have their sights set on some tour plans in 2021. If all works out, they will be hitting a number of European cities with Intronaut, Obsidian Kingdom, and Crown. I adore this band, and they deserve to tour. So I hope all this happens.
  • And lastly, a new video from All Souls for “Winds”, a track taken from End of the World, which just dropped a couple weeks ago.

We’ve reached the end of another one of those kinds of weeks that make me want to pull my hair out, had I any hair left to pull out in the first place.  Thankfully, music soothes the savage beast, and we’ve got a boatload of goodies in store for you today.  Take a listen below and let us know your favorite tracks we might have forgotten; we always appreciate hot leads on good music.

It’s been forever since I did one of these because I was in the wilderness for a week. But I’m back now. Chris will be so happy.

10/19/2017. Last one of these for the week. From me, at least.

I’ve watched it a few times now. Still intense.
