The Osedax
The Osedax

I’ve got little in the way of words other than this list is a bit longer than it has been lately so if anyone’s missed several weekly picks, we got you. For fans of really slow build sludge and doom with post-metal thrown in for good measure The Osedax has you covered – patience is a virtue and here it will pay off in spades, Lebanese blackened death metallers Kaoteon have teamed up with members of Obscura and At the Gates so there’s that, and punk rockers The Good the Bad and the Zugly offer up a balls out rocker of an album, if that’s your kind of thing. Wide swath of stuff covered here and the list below continues in this same fashion so get your fix, there’s more than just one. (Bonus points if you actually get that) Continue reading

CANTO: Tribulation, Kaoteon, and a Couple Massive Tours

DSC_0111

1/12/2018. Friday. Did I really complete a full week? Damn.

  • Tours. Everywhere. The first one is just a rumor for now (I think), but it features SlayerLamb Of GodAnthraxBehemoth, and Testament. Massive. It’s like a more watered down version of last year’s tour.
  • Now for a tour I’m more excited about. Primitive Man and Spectral Voice. God. Dammit. That is going to kick ass.
  • How about one more new Tribulation song before the album drops? This one is called “The World”. And my excitement for Down Below continues to grow exponentially.
  • So this is pretty cool. Check out a new track from blackened death metallers Kaoteon called “Damnatio Memoriae”, the title-track from their new album out February 23rd. The group features members of Obscura and Marduk.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
