CANTO: Lacuna Coil, Carcass, Telepathy, and More

My shins hurt.

  • Lacuna Coil have had to cancel some shows as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. This is a serious bummer, but I was wondering when we would start to see some postponed tours as a result of what’s going on in the world.
  • Carcass have revealed the name of their upcoming new album. It will be called Torn Arteries and it is slated for an August 7th release through Nuclear Blast. We are all looking forward to that one.
  • Auðn are back in the studio to record their third full-length album. I immensely enjoyed 2017’s Farvegir Fyrndar, so needless to say I’m excited to hear this news. Sounds like the new record will be out later this year through Season of Mist.
  • I’m in a weird mood, so let’s close with some post-metal. This is the latest from Telepathy, titled “The Void In Aimless Flight”. Burn Embrace will be out on March 27th through Svart Records.

I am back from Wyoming and have returned to the pathetic existence that is routine.
