CANTO: Lantlos, Amenra, Silver Lake, and More

The announcements today are… substantial.

  • Unreqvited are releasing a new album on August 13th through Prophecy Productions titled Beautiful Ghosts, which is basically the most Unreqvited album name ever. You can pre-order it here, and check out the first single off that album, “Autumn & Everley”, right here.
  • Ok, so it was a big day for Prophecy, with Lantlos also making an album announcement. Wildhund will be out on July 30th, so we won’t need to wait quite as long for that one. And of course, these announcements usually come with new tunes, so here’s the impressive new video for “Lake Fantasy”.
  • Remember that epic tour scheduled for last year that featured the likes of Megadeth, In Flames, Lamb of God, and Trivium? Well, those dates have been rescheduled to this August and September. This tour would be a monstrous way to welcome concerts back in 2021, so fingers crossed it all works out. Tickets go on sale Friday.
  • The debut album from Silver Lake (Esa Holopainen), drops on May 28th through Nuclear Blast. Check out the second trailer for that album here, which includes discussion about the guest appearances on the self-titled debut. Trust me, it’s worth the five minutes of your time.
  • Lastly, and definitely most importantly (to me), is the news from Amenra. Their next full-length, De Doorn, is set for a June 25th release through Relapse Records. Pre-order it here, but just a heads up that a lot of the good stuff is sold out already (I helped that cause). This also came with a new track and video, “De Evenmens”. Needless to say, it is incredible on every front. Enjoy.

CANTO: Light The Torch, Kataan, Lamb of God, and More

This was one long fucking week.

  • I’m really excited about the debut from Kataan, so naturally I have to include the latest single from Processor in this roundup. This one is titled “Abyss”, and it is predictably awesome.
  • A couple fun covers to toss in the mix today, the first coming from Lamb of God. This is their reimagining of the Bad Brains track “I Against I”. I’m ready for this pandemic to be over, but these quarantine videos have been really well executed over the past year, this being no exception.
  • And the other cover of the day comes from Carnifex, who released a cover of Korn’s “Dead Bodies Everywhere”. This isn’t a quarantine video, but the visualizer for it is pretty damn wild. Check it out here.
  • And the video of the day comes from Light the Torch, the Howard Jones-fronted trio. They have a new album, their second full-length, set for a June 25th release through Nuclear Blast. It will be titled You Will Be the Death of Me, and you can check out the video for “Wilting in the Light” immediately below. Oh, and pre-orders are available at this location.

Why do I feel like WordPress regularly changes a bunch of shit just for the sake of it?

CANTO: The Ocean Collective, Lamb of God, Erdve, and More

The Ocean

This week tapered off in a very strange way.

  • Very exciting news emerging from my favorite band today. The Ocean have announced a live stream event in which they will be performing Phanerozoic I in it’s entirety. That event takes place on March 25th. Better news still? They have TWO new albums ready to be recorded.
  • H2O have teamed up with Liquid Death for a new streaming experience. Live At Toby’s House takes place on February 26th at 8:00 PM EST. That fact that this is taking place in the front man’s home is pretty freaking awesome/hilarious. Snag a ticket here if you’re intrigued by such a concept.
  • So there’s another unique streaming event I feel compelled to share today. Extreme hardcore crew Erdve will be sharing a virtual performance filmed at Lukiškės Prison in Vilnius, Lithuania. The footage was captured last September, and the premiere is scheduled for February 27th. Here is the event link. This should be a good one.
  • We’ll close with the new video from Lamb of God for “Ghost Shaped People”. That was a track taken from the upcoming deluxe version of their self-titled album. Give it a watch below, and scoop up the latest version of that record here… if you’re interested. It officially drops on March 26th.
