“Blinded by lack of reason, indulging the tales of doom.”
- Amaranthe have officially canceled their North American tour with Seven Spires and Battle Beast. Those dates were supposed to fall mostly in August and September, so the canceling is understandable.
- Remember those awesome upcoming Enslaved performances we’ll be able to watch from the comfort of our own homes? Well the July 30th edition just got better. The band has invited the fans to help curate the setlist.
- Heilung have also made the decision to postpone their performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, which was scheduled for this coming October. The new date is set as October 5th, 2021.
- We’ll close with some solid black metal from Somniate. This track is called “Of Fragrance and Light” and is taken from their debut album, The Meyrinkian Slumber, which drops on June 30th through Lavadome Productions.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
This week has been… aggressive.
- Vile Creature have announced a North American tour as well as an exclusive London show. The tour runs in May and June, and Elizabeth Colour Wheel will be joining them for a few dates, which is super cool. Their debut album with Prosthetic Records should be out in the near future as well.
- Mörk Gryning have announced their first ever U.S. tour. There are only seven dates between April 30th and May 6th, but it includes an appearance at Art Noir Extreme Fest II in Brooklyn.
- Heilung announced an upcoming release of their performance at Castlefest in 2017. It will be called Lifa – Heilung Live at Castlefest, and it drops on April 24th through Season of Mist.
- Check out this new video from Fleshgod Apocalypse for “Monnalisa”. That’s a track taken from Veleno, which is out now on Nuclear Blast. They have a U.S. tour kicking off in just a couple weeks.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
We’re back on a regular format today. No more eulogies from me, thankfully. Instead, we’ve just got our weekly assortment of whatever great tunes we’ve been jamming. This week, I throw in some new Cult of Luna, which I enjoyed a lot more than its one hour and twenty minute run time would have had me believe I could, Anton throws in the new single from Sutrah which he’s been gushing about to anyone with ears around these parts, and we have a few picks from a site newcomer who you may or may not be hearing more from very soon…
Until then, enjoy.
Woops. We didn’t have one of these last week, because writing this up managed to completely slip my mind. My sincere apologies about that. Hopefully our cournucopia of riffs will be enough to land me back in your good graces. Thanks for being patient, and hopefully this gets your Saturday off to a good start.
