CANTO: Killswitch Engage, Batushka, Intercepting Pattern, and More


  • Killswitch Engage is giving As Daylight Dies the vinyl treatment for the first time. You can pre-order your copy here. I’m going to pass on this one, but throw some Alive or Just Breathing my way and I will definitely catch it.
  • The Metal Blade version of Batushka (Bart-ushka) dropped a new single yesterday titled “ИРМОС II / IRMOS II”, and is available for streaming over at Bandcamp. It rips, but I still prefer the other Batushka. Yes, this is all still very confusing.
  • Grind legends Rotten Sound have announced a live show, that will also be streamed, on July 25th in Vaasa, Finland. Honestly, seems like a fair way to go. Attend in person if you’re cool with that, or stream it if you’re still hesitant.
  • Finally, this debut from German progressive metal outfit Intercepting Pattern for “Rebiogenesis”. The Encounter will be out on September 4th through Rising Nemesis Records.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
