CANTO: Der Weg einer Freiheit, Waldgeflüster, Shy, Low, and More

Apparently this has turned into an every other day kind of post? Oh well. Sometimes life (still) be like that.

  • The only reason I’m not closing with this is because it was a yesterday post. But Der Weg einer Freiheit released a new single, “Morgen”, along with new album details. You can pre-order Noktvrn here, which will be out through Season of Mist. I already did exactly that. Duh.
  • Hey look, another new track from a German black metal band that I absolutely adore. Waldgeflüster are releasing Dahoam on September 24th through AOP Records, and today they unveiled an epic new track titled “Am Tatzlwurm”, which features JJ from Harakiri for the Sky. It’s incredible.
  • Archspire unveiled the title track from their new album, Bleed The Future, and everything they do is a party so let’s toss that in as well. That album is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
  • Animals As Leaders have released their first new material in, what, five years? Damn. Check out the brand new track and video, “Monomyth”, right here. They’ve also signed a new deal with Sumerian Records so… new album soon please?
  • And we’ll close with the new video from Shy, Low, the instrumental rock collective out of Richmond. Check out “The Beacon” below, and keep an eye out for Snake Behind the Sun, which will be out on October 8th through Pelagic Records.

Harakiri For the Sky - Maere

Somehow, someway, there is no alcohol in my house. Suboptimal.

Initial Descent: February 14 – 20, 2021

Dopelord

Did you shower your Valentine with all the good stuff yesterday? Call your mom? How about gift some grindcore or doom or death metal? No? WTF! If the answer was no to any of those, literally no one cares so you’re good. Anyway, new week means new metal and we’ve got plenty of it, so maybe a late gift?….haha. Kidding. Kicking things off in play low and play slow style are the Polish quartet Dopelord with a smokin’ new EP—see what I did there—that really has me in its grasp, next up is a bone cruncher of blackened-deathgrind from Gravesend, following that is a proggy death metal come psychedelic ambient number from The Lylat Continuum, and last up top is Harakiri For The Sky with their new full length that weaves post-everything and a pinch of black and folk metal—it hasn’t tripped my trigger yet, but maybe your mileage will be better. We’ve got all that and a ton more, so get to digging.

CANTO: Harakiri For The Sky, The Amenta, Pupil Slicer, and More

harakiri for the sky

I should probably go outside one of these days.

  • So this is different and definitely worth a few minutes of time. Members of Archspire have launched an online cooking show? It’s called Good Morning Handsome, and you can check out episode 1, “Friends With Benny’s”, right now.
  • Harakiri For The Sky released a new single today, with accompanying drum playthrough. “I’m All About the Dusk” is, of course, taken from Mӕre, which is now set for a February 19th release through AOP Records.
  • Pupil Slicer, who just signed on with Prosthetic Records last year, have announced the release of their debut album, Mirrors, on March 12th. They’re streaming a new single today, “Wounds Upon My Skin”, if you’re interested in a preview.
  • And we’ll close with a video from The Amenta for “An Epoch Ellipsis”, a track taken from Revelator. That album drops on February 19th through Debemur Morti Productions. Get your pre-order on over at their Bandcamp link.
