CANTO: Hexvessel, Devin Townsend, In This Moment, and More

And on the third day, Corey said “find me a new show to watch and pour me a rye”.

  • Add In This Moment to the list of bands that had to postpone or cancel a tour. If there is any good news here, however, it’s that it appears another update regarding new dates may be in the near future.
  • Devin Townsend is working on a “Quarantine Project” (literally named), and dropped the first song from that effort. It’s partly in response/gratitude to his recent GoFundMe campaign to make back some lost touring wages, because, well, Devy is a tremendous human.
  • In case you needed another excuse to add to your music library, Bandcamp has announced that this coming Friday they are waiving their revenue share on sales. That means all purchase prices go directly to the artist, in full. I have some goodies lined up for the 20th… I hope you do as well.
  • Hexvessel premiered a new track and video today, which we will absolutely be closing with. The song is called “Phaedra”, taken from Kindred, which drops on April 17th through Svart Records.

CANTO: In This Moment, 1349, Envy, and More

1349

I worked in Boston today. Therefore, I am tired.

  • In This Moment have announced their seventh album, Mother, will be out on March 27th via Roadrunner/Atlantic. A video for the first single, “The In-Between” is available now. Upcoming tour dates, as well.
  • A whole bunch of videos today that I’m going to share because time is short. The first comes from Envy, for “A Faint New World”. I’ve had a chance to listen to The Fallen Crimson (out of February 7th through Pelagic Records), and it is awesome.
  • The next one comes from German thrash group Surgical Strike. Their debut, titled Part of a Sick World, is out this coming Friday on Metalville Records. Anyway, here is the video for “Not In This Life.”
  • Lastly, we have 1349‘s video for “Through Eyes of Stone”. The Infernal Pathway was released last October and if you weren’t already aware… it’s quite good.

CANTO: Cloak, Sanctuary, New Years Day, and More

I bought new wireless headphones yesterday. I bet they suck.

  • We like Cloak here. At least, I know some of us do. So this is good news. They have a new album dropping on October 25th called The Burning Dawn, which will be out on Season of Mist. There’s a new video for a song called “Tempter’s Call” in there as well.
  • Another notable band working on new material is Sanctuary. Joseph Michael is still sticking around on vocals, which I’m very much ok with. There’s no title yet, and it won’t be out until the second half of next year, but you can see them do some stuff in Germany in the interim if you’re ever out that way.
  • New Years Day, a name I’m not sure I’ve ever mentioned on this site, have announced a fall headlining tour with Ded. The dates are in September and October, but they’re also touring with In This Moment here in the U.S. and Halestorm across the pond.
  • This is fairly heavy. RIG TIME! have released a video for a song called “No Faith”. It’s a quick burn, but it makes its point. If you’re into it, they’ll be on tour here throughout August.

“I play practical jokes, this squirting flower. That wasn’t flour that blew up your nose. It’s my special blend of Ex, Coke and K. You should be okay in several hours.”

“We who have taken thy name, who knowledge the beast within, who revel in the delights of the flesh, call upon you! Come in answer to your names!”
