CANTO: Cradle of Filth, Enslaved, In Flames, and More

InFlames.3.3.19.144

  • Cradle of Filth have announced a live stream event on Halloween, performed in St. Mary’s Church. This sounds… delightful. Get your tickets here. Side note: how is Halloween already a topic of discussion again? What a strange year.
  • Clayman turned 20 today, and we all know In Flames celebrated the occasion with an anniversary edition of the record, complete with a few re-recordings. One of which was “Only For The Weak”. Say what you will about the new version, but this video hits me in all the nostalgic feels.
  • Four Stroke Baron released a cover of Post Malone’s “Broken Whiskey Glass”, which sounds like a fun thing to include on a Friday. That’s one in a string of covers featured on the upcoming Monoqueen, which drops on September 25th through Prosthetic Records.
  • So the latest Enslaved single, “Urjotun”, sure is something. Still an amazing something, obviously. The release of Utgard is getting closer… October 2nd through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: The Ocean, Enslaved, Vous Autres, and More

Kicking myself for not carving out time to get this in yesterday’s schedule. Alas.

  • OF COURSE we’re going to open with the latest track and video from The Ocean. This one is for “Oligocene”, which serves as a transition between the Mesozoic and Cenozoic segments of the record.  Phanerozoic II is out on September 25th through Metal Blade.
  • Anybody check out the stream of Enslaved‘s “Below The Lights” performance, a collaboration with the Beyond The Gates Festival? Here’s the link if you need it. Utgard is out on October 2nd through Nuclear Blast.
  • In this latest trailer for the 20th anniversary of ClaymanAnders and Björn get into the evolution of the band since that album was released. I’m actually curious to hear from these two on this subject. That drops on August 28th, also through Nuclear Blast.
  • Post black metal sounds like a good way to transition into Friday, so here’s a new visualizer from Vous Autres for “Onde”. Sel de Pierre is out on September 25th through Season of Mist.
