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: Tribulation, Memoira, Garmarna, and More

Tribulation

  • 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.

Rainbows in the Dark (?): Nobody — “Atmosfear”

I’ll be honest about this one; I’m not sure how well it falls under the Rainbows brand, considering it is a black metal album at its core, despite a lack of almost any instrumental resemblance to black metal.  However, Finland’s Nobody is committed to pushing the black metal scene forward by going the opposite direction of everyone else.  Instead of faster, louder and heavier, he’s adding by subtracting, leaving only…well, the Atmosfear, if you will.  And boy howdy is there nothing else out there like this.  It’s Rainbows in the Dark, bringing you whatever I feel like, at this point.
