Got some more live stream shows to share today, so let’s get right into it.

  • Lacuna Coil have announced the “Black Anima: Live From The Apocalypse” event, scheduled for September 11th at 3:00 PM EST. The show will include a full performance of Black Anima, which is pretty dope. Tickets are available here.
  • And then we have Fleshgod Apocalypse, who are live streaming a full concert of their own from Bloom Studio in Rome. That event takes place on August 1st and tickets can be scooped up at this location.
  • Pulchra Morte, the death/doom outfit featuring members of Skeletonwitch, Wolvhammer, Eulogy, etc. have been added to the Transcending Obscurity roster. This news also comes with an album announcement, scheduled for a fall release.
  • And we’ll close with a (relatively) new video from Firing All Cylinders for “Never Broken”, taken from Weaponized, which is out now on Awfully Good Records. Give it a watch if you have a few minutes to spare.

CANTO: Necronomicon, I Prevail, Ingested, and More

“It’s not the way to cross the faith, the promise has been broken. My disease, everlasting. Let me bleed forever.”

  • We’ll start with a drum play-through from Necronomicon because those are always a good time. This one is for the track “From Ashes Into Flesh”, taken from last year’s Unus, out on Season of Mist.
  • I Prevail dropped a new video today for “DOA”, which features rapper Joyner Lucas. That one was taken from last year’s Trauma, which was released through Fearless.
  • Since news is fairly light today, I’m going to take this opportunity to share my favorite Instagram account ever this week. I give you… Albums of Bikini Bottom. My personal favorite is probably the one for Karmacode.
  • Ingested have released a lockdown video for “Dead Seraphic Forms”, which is a track taken from their upcoming new album, Where Only Gods May Tread, out August 14th through Unique Leader. Let’s watch this one together.

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.

Scholar of the First Sin: Hera’s Best of 2019

Best of 2019

The Dark Souls franchise may own this title, but Aldia’s got nothing on me.

Last year around this time I made a statement, hoping that I would take it easier on the album listening; however, I also said that it would be for naught, as my 2019 release calendar was looking great and I was so excited about it.

However, life has a way of kicking you in the bollocks. Continue reading

I had to skip Canto yesterday to set up my new, and slightly less mediocre, sound system. Priorities!
