CANTO: In Flames, High Command, My Dying Bride, and More

Amazing outside. Can wait to spend the evening inside mindlessly staring at the internet.

  • Runespell and Forest Mysticism are preparing a split album scheduled for a May 15th release. The title of that effort is Wandering Forlorn and it will be out on CD and vinyl LP formats through Iron Bonehead Productions.
  • In Flames are still having fun with last year’s release, I, The Mask. For starters, they dropped a one year anniversary bundle that includes a statue and shirt. More entertainingly, they dropped an 8-bit version of the album. Arcade versions of things are always fun, so have at it.
  • High Command have announced some new tour dates, including a small run of dates in Canada, at the end of April. Here is the full run of shows, including the preceding U.S. dates. Enjoy.
  • Finally, since I’m still enjoying the new My Dying Bride album, here is the shiny new video for “To Outlive The Gods”, taken from The Ghost Of Orion. That album is out now on Nuclear Blast.

Scholar of the First Sin: Hera’s Best of 2019

Best of 2019

The Dark Souls franchise may own this title, but Aldia’s got nothing on me.

Last year around this time I made a statement, hoping that I would take it easier on the album listening; however, I also said that it would be for naught, as my 2019 release calendar was looking great and I was so excited about it.

However, life has a way of kicking you in the bollocks. Continue reading

CANTO: In Flames, Entrails, Devin Townsend, and More

InFlames.3.3.19.127

And today was the most Monday-ist Tuesday ever.

  • In Flames have announced a North American tour this November and December. Headlining this time around, support will comes from Arrival of Autumn and Red. Could be a fun one. I may dabble.
  • An update from Dave Mustaine, who was diagnosed with throat cancer earlier in the year. It seems like he’s making strong progress in his recovery, which is great to hear. Megacruise is just around the corner, for those taking part. Best wishes continued for the dude.
  • In lead up to their new album, Rise of the ReaperEntrails offered us a new single today called “The Pyre”. It’s quite good. The album itself drops on October 11th, so not too much longer to wait now.
  • This is from yesterday, but whatever. Devin Townsend’s animated music video for “Why?”. Empath dropped back on March 29th. Hopefully you have all checked it out at this point.
