CANTO: Fire In The Mountains, Wilderun, Fuath, and More

Thankfully, there is a lot more to share today than there was yesterday.

  • Genghis Tron helped me open my day on a good note. They shared a new single, “Ritual Circle”, which is taken from their new upcoming full-length. Dream Weapon drops on March 26th through Relapse Records, and here is that pre-order link that you obviously need.
  • Yo, check out this Wilderun video for their cover of Iron Maiden’s “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son“. That was released as a bonus track from 2020’s Veil of Imagination, out through Century Media Records. And it appears that Wilderun is working on their follow-up to that record, which is more good news!
  • Fire In The Mountains, my favorite festival on the goddamn planet, has made the decision to postpone one more year. Understandable, but obviously a bummer. As I’ve said throughout this year, I would rather hold out a little longer and get to experience the full version of something like a festival, than force the issue and rush an abbreviated (and potentially unsafe) version of it. That said, it looks like the festival planners have something in the works for us sooner than 2022, and that’s definitely worth keeping an eye on.
  • Finally, to end on a higher note, we have a new video from Fuath to share this evening. Check out “Into the Forest of Shadows” below. That, of course, is taken from II, which is out on March 19th through Season of Mist. I already pre-ordered it, did you?

Let’s face it, this is probably the last Canto of the week. Fridays are for shits and the lack of giving them.

Wake Up and Smell the Satan – May 11, 2018

A 1989 Chicago police document, which captured the essence of 1980s’ hysteria over Satanism, went viral this week. The document itself is quite a read,

The Satanism hysteria, called the “Satanic panic” in the popular press, found Lucifer seemingly everywhere. Here is the New York Times looking back at fears the roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons conjured the Dark Lord. And, of course, bands like Motley Crue, Kiss and others were considered by some to be the ambassadors of Hell. Continue reading

I’m going to try to do these more often because I guess Chris likes them for some reason.
