Donuts & CANTO: Full of Hell, Alestorm, Deicide and more

Full of Hell

March 13, 2017

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from over the weekend:

  • As is customary, a whole bunch of bands dropped new albums this past Friday, including Lock UpFen and more. Our man Josh has a full breakdown here.
  • We’ve still got a couple of months until the new Full of Hell album comes out, but in case you need that “just got fed through a lawnmower” feeling in your life a little sooner than that, here’s their new song, “Deluminate.”
  • Scottish pirate metal crew Alestorm announced their fifth albumNo Grave But the Sea, due out May 26 on Napalm Records. I don’t see a Taio Cruz cover this time out, but there is a song called “Fucked with an Anchor,” so…
  • Deicide announced a short run of tour dates through the eastern U.S. for mid-May. You know, just in case people still care about Deicide.
  • A whole bunch of cool bands were added to this year’s Brutal Assault festival lineup, including The Dillinger Escape PlanOverkillPower Trip and Oathbreaker. That is neat. Hatebreed was also added to the lineup. That is less neat.
  • Southern Lord Records released their Spring 2017 sampler on Bandcamp, with all proceeds from the pay-what-you-want download going to the ACLU. You should get on that.
  • Finally, Me and That Man posted a video for their new song, “Cross My Heart and Hope to Die.” I can personally guarantee our Literati Overlord has already splooged about 10x to this. Here’s the video:

Me and That Man’s debut album, Songs of Love and Death, comes out March 24 on Cooking Vinyl Records. That’ll do it for now, but check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!

Keep it heavy,

Initial Descent: May 13, 2016

kvelertak band live

Ladies. Gentlemen. Friendly reminder that we are now just two short weeks away from Maryland Deathfest. And I’ll be damned if I’ve ever needed that weekend more. Your boy’s gonna get more than a little silly, I can promise you that.

But that’s two weeks from now. For now, it’s only May 13, and that means…actually, that means we’ve got some killer new metal dropping today. We start with Norwegian black ‘n’ rollers Kvelertak, who return with their third album, Nattesferd. (Is “black ‘n’ roll” still an appropriate label for them? Maybe not, but I also can’t think of a more fitting one.) We’ve also got a highly anticipated, single-song EP from Gorguts, a new album from Grand Magus and quite a bit more. So let’s take a look. Here’s what’s on tap for this week:
