CANTO: Aeon, Lamb of God, The Silver, and More

Man, Sacrament is old. Which means… I’m old?

  • Anyway, let’s start with Aeon, who announced their first new album in absolutely forever. God Ends Here will be out on October 15th through Metal Blade Records, and you can check out a lyric video for the first single, titled “Church of Horror”, right here. This kicks ass.
  • Anyway, I hinted at Lamb of God news, so let’s go there next. Today they released “The Making of Redneck Music Video” clip, which I needed so badly today. And truthfully I can’t believe that came out in 2006. A reminder that a digital reissue of Sacrament will be out this coming Friday.
  • Members of Horrendous and Crypt Sermon have teamed up as The Silver. Their debut, Ward of Roses, will be out on October 15th through Gilead Media. Check out the first single, “The Fallow”, and get your pre-order on at this location. Also, a question for the aether, the Gilead 2021 SubClub is gonna happen right? Because I need some of this stuff, just not TWICE.
  • The Lion’s Daughter have announced a concert stream that will be held via Knotfest’s Twitch channel. The event is scheduled for August 20th (Friday) at 8:00 EDT. They’ll be supporting the recently released new album, Skin Show, which is out through Season of Mist.
  • And we’ll close with a new video from Caustic Casanova, because a little stoner rock sounds like the right way to wrap up a Tuesday. Here’s the clip for “Memory King”. That track is taken from 2019’s God How I Envy The Deaf.

CANTO: Fire In The Mountains, The Devil’s Trade, Benediction, and More

Hurray! Festival news that is relevant to me!

  • And that, of course, refers to Fire In The Mountains. A new batch of bands was announced, including Yellow Eyes, Visigoth, Lykotonon, and more. The 2022 version of this festival is going to be absolutely massive. Tickets are available at this location.
  • Megadeth has named a bassist for the upcoming tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed. James LoMenzo will be stepping in for that run of shows, after Megadeth parted ways with David Ellefson. Those dates start August 20th in Austin, Texas. Tickets are available here.
  • Canadian technical death metallers Deviant Process premiered a new song from Nurture, titled “The Hammer of Dogma”. That album is set for an October 15th release through Season of Mist.
  • I’m going to drop in a couple new videos today, one of which comes from Benediction. Here’s the new video for “Tear Off These Wings”, from their most recent album, Scriptures, which dropped last October through Nuclear Blast.
  • And lastly, The Devil’s Trade released a new live video for “Három Árva”, a track taken from last year’s The Call of the Iron Peak (Season of Mist). Give it a watch below. It’s awesome.

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.
