CANTO: Cattle Decapitation, Dark Tranquillity, The Halo Effect, and More

Go to a wedding, come back sick, get better, go to another wedding, come back sick, get better…

  • Cattle Decapitation have announced the “Death… At Last” tour with The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Extinction A.D., and Creeping Death. Those are U.S. dates beginning January 18th and running through February 20th. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday at this location.
  • And then we’ll jump over to Pelagic Records, where Som has announced the upcoming release of The Shape Of Everything. That drops on January 21st, and is available for preorder here. Check out the first track, “Animals”, right now at the previous link.
  • Cynic shared a preview of an upcoming new track, titled “Diamond Light Body”, through Season of Mist. That one is taken from Ascension Codes, which is out on November 26th and can be purchased here.
  • This came through yesterday but whatever. Dark Tranquillity are making their return to North America early next year with Kataklysm and Nailed To Obscurity. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday. They’ll be supporting Moment, a very good album… in case you needed a reminder.
  • We’re closing with the first single from The Halo Effect, and it’s titled “Shadowminds”. And I’m not gonna lie, I am really, really happy about it. That project recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast, but album details haven’t quite emerged yet. We’ll keep you posted.

I don’t know about anyone else, but Roadburn Redux delivered some seriously memorable sets this past weekend.

CANTO: Dethklok, The Ocean, Kataklysm, and More

The Ocean

There is a reasonable chance this is my last full working week of 2019. Whoa.

  • A total ICYMI moment, Dethklok performed live for the first time in five years at this past weekend’s Adult Swim Fest out in LA. Here is some footage if you’re interested.
  • Hey you guys, Mötley Crüe is back. Remember back in 2015 when they signed a cessation of touring agreement? To be honest, I 100% do not. But apparently it didn’t matter anyway! Moving on…
  • Hey you guy’s again, The Ocean are almost ready to drop Phanerozoic IIYou know what this means right? MOAR FOSSILS. It sounds like it should be out sometime next year and I couldn’t be more excited.
  • Kataklysm dropped a new lyric video for “The Last Breath I’ll Take Is Yours”. That track is from 2018’s Meditations and this video was released in anticipation of their upcoming tour dates in Europe.
