CANTO: Aeviterne, KYOTY, Nekrogoblikon, and More

In case you weren’t aware, our 2021 year-end posts are still going strong! I’ll publish mine… eventually.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

CANTO: Arch Enemy, Death Angel, Dying Hydra, and More

Metal internet continues to prove incredibly stupid… aside from this little project obviously.

  • Leading things off, we have Arch Enemy, who released a new single and video titled “Deceiver, Deceiver”. The video was directed by Patric Ullaeus, which is always notable. I feel like it’s been a bit since we got anything new from Arch Enemy, so I’m pretty about all this.
  • Arising Empire have added a new name to their roster in hardcore collective Thrown. To mark the occasion, the band also released their debut single and video, titled “grayout”. Feel free to purchase or stream that right here.
  • Finnish melodic death metal crew Re-Armed are celebrating their 20-year journey with the release of a new EP, titled simply XX. That will officially be released on January 27th through Inverse Records, but feel free to give “As the Stars Align” a listen right now.
  • Since I’ve been listening to a ton of doom today, I’m going to toss in the new track from Dying Hydra as well. It’s called “Earliest Root”, and can be viewed over here.
  • We’ll wrap up Thursday with Death Angel. Their new live album, The Bastard Tracks, drops on November 26th through Nuclear Blast. The clip below for “Where They Lay” can be viewed immediately below.

CANTO: Denouncement Pyre, Igorrr, Abstrakt, and More

There is simply too much going on.

  • Denouncement Pyre, a name I haven’t mentioned in quite some time, have announced that they’ve signed on with Agonia Records. They’re currently working on their fourth album, following up 2016’s Black Sun Unbound, with details still to come.
  • Igorrr have announced a North American tour next February and March with Melt-Banana and Vowws. This will be their first trek in support of Spirituality and Distortion, which is pretty cool. There’s some time to kill before these dates, but you can find tickets here.
  • Is there anybody out there that can help me get my hands on some Insomnium Helles? There are some metal/alcohol collaborations that I’m happy to just scroll past… but definitely not this one.
  • And we’ll close with the new visualizer from Finnish symphonic metal band Abstrakt. This is “Inferno”, taken from Uncreation, which dropped back in February of this year through Inverse Records.

CANTO: Withered, Abstracted, Maryland Deathfest, and More

So this MDF lineup v. 2022 is looking better and better with each announcement…

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

CANTO: Tribulation, Memoira, Garmarna, and More


  • Absolutely heart-breaking news to share today about the passing of Power Trip frontman Riley Gale. At this time, we don’t know exactly what happened, but I’m sure more information will emerge eventually. For now, let’s just recognize that metal lost a great one. Our thoughts are with those close to Riley. RIP.
  • Let’s try and find some positives to share from here on out… starting with Tribulation, who have announced a new album, Where the Gloom Becomes SoundThat is set for a January 2021 release through Metal Blade in North America and Century Media elsewhere.
  • Swedish folk rock crew Garmarna have unveiled new album details as well. Förbundet drops on November 6th through Season of Mist, and you can listen to a new track right now called “Ramunder”.
  • We’ll close the day with a new video from symphonic metallers Memoira for a track called “Shooting Star”, taken from the album Carnival of Creation. That is set for a September 25th release through Inverse Records.
