CANTO: DragonForce, Demons & Wizards, Golgotha, and More

dragonforce

Two day streak!

  • Let’s start with an update from Golgotha. The Spanish doomers are preparing to release their fourth album, titled Erasing the Past, through Xtreem Music. It will be out on October 22nd, and you can check out a new track called “Distorted Tears” right now. Spoiler alert: it be good.
  • I stumbled on this Demons & Wizards footage from Wacken Open Air 2019 and got super nostalgic. This is a performance of the track “The Gunslinger”. I need to get back to that festival some year. Ya know, now that I’m a wise old man and all.
  • I’m not sure if anyone is familiar with, or planning on attending, HorrorHound Weekend (September 6-8 in Indianapolis). But if you are, you’ll be able to catch John 5 performing that Saturday. 
  • Ya know what? Let’s cram another YouTube link in here. DragonForce dropped a new video for “Heart Demolition”, off of the upcoming Extreme Power Metal full length out on September 27th. Let’s watch it.

CANTO: This Will Destroy You, Suffocation, ORCumentary, and More

ThisWillDestroyYou11.15.17.23

I went for a run today. Like, an outside run. It’s been awhile.

  • Not sure if anyone caught this last night, but one of my favorite bands made their way into a Super Bowl commercial. Specifically, I’m referring to This Will Destroy You and their song “The Mighty Rio Grande”.
  • Suffocation currently has no vocalist, as we are all very much aware… but that’s not gonna stop them! Looks like Ricky Myers might take over those duties and a new album could be on the horizon.
  • While everyone else was miserably watching Maroon 5, I was focusing on the vastly superior halftime show performed by ORCumentary. Just in case you missed it, here ya go.
  • John 5 is always an interesting time. There’s a new album coming out eventually, but more importantly there’s a new song available now called “Crank It – Living With Ghosts”. Dabble, won’t you?

Just the Tip: August 12’s New Releases in Brief

It’s new release Tuesday! With Corey coming back to the fold after some time away in Germany, we’re going to break from our usual format and abstain from covering any new releases on this week’s podcast. (Instead, it’s going to be a full-on recap of his experience at the Wacken Open Air festival. And, presumably, his experience in Munich, drinking beer.)

The timing of this is actually quite fortuitous, as there’s…not really all that much new stuff to listen to this week. But that said, here are some highlights that you may want to check out on your own time. We may get to them as well, but…we may not. Here goes:

August 12, 2014

Postcoital Ulceration – Continuation of Defective Existence After Multiple Ruinous Collapses (Ghastly Music)

(Yes, this is a real album title)

John 5 – Careful With That Axe (60 Cycle Hum)

Unisonic – Light of Dawn (earMUSIC)

This week also sees the release of Upon a Burning Body’s new album, The World is My Enemy Now, which I cannot in good conscience recommend for a couple of reasons. First: they’re fucking terrible. Second: THE SINGER FAKED HIS OWN KIDNAPPING AS A PUBLICITY STUNT TO PROMOTE THIS RECORD. If you don’t have severe moral qualms about listening to them after shit like this, I really question you as a human being. So avoid this one and check out the albums I mentioned above instead.

(Particularly that John 5 record–pure shred guitar awesomeness. Is this guy really still playing with Rob Zombie? Like, really?)

Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
