From there, we have a fairly massive tour featuring Anthrax, Black Label Society, and Hatebreed. Those are July and August dates, and tickets go on sale this coming Friday. They can be picked up here, or here.
And the third of three new tours we’ll drop in here features The Acacia Strain, with Malevolence, I AM, and 156/Silence. Those are June and July dates, and tickets will be available here.
I don’t even know where to begin with how annoyed I am… but at least there’s a lot going on today.
Starting with Amorphis, who are returning to North America in April and May with Sylvaine and Hoaxed. Of course, they’ll be supporting Halo, which drops on February 11th through Atomic Fire. Tickets for the tour go on sale this coming Friday here.
The obvious choice is to close with some Abbath. Details surrounding the new album have finally been revealed. Dread Reaver is set for a March 25th release through Season of Mist, and the video for the first single, “Dream Cull”, is available below.
And that, of course, refers to Fire In The Mountains. A new batch of bands was announced, including Yellow Eyes, Visigoth, Lykotonon, and more. The 2022 version of this festival is going to be absolutely massive. Tickets are available at this location.
Megadeth has named a bassist for the upcoming tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed. James LoMenzo will be stepping in for that run of shows, after Megadeth parted ways with David Ellefson. Those dates start August 20th in Austin, Texas. Tickets are available here.
I’m going to drop in a couple new videos today, one of which comes from Benediction. Here’s the new video for “Tear Off These Wings”, from their most recent album, Scriptures, which dropped last October through Nuclear Blast.
And lastly, The Devil’s Trade released a new live video for “Három Árva”, a track taken from last year’s The Call of the Iron Peak (Season of Mist). Give it a watch below. It’s awesome.
Behemoth are reissuing one their best works, Evangelion, on vinyl through Metal Blade Records. The official release is June 11th, and there a couple different variants available. Pre-order that one here.
French black metallers Seth have released a new song and video, commemorating the anniversary of the Notre Dame fire, titled “Les Océans du Vide!”. That’s taken from La morsure du Christ, which is out on May 7th through Season of Mist. Check out the video right here.
