I’ve done a really bad job at not drinking this year already.

CANTO: Anomalie, Brand of Sacrifice, Abhoria, and More

After this, I get to write about music and alcohol at the same time!

  • Brand of Sacrifice dropped a reissue of the title track from their most recent album, Lifeblood. The album was released back in March originally, and this version of the track features Will Ramos of Lorna Shore. Give it a listen here.
  • Prosthetic Records have added a new name to their roster in Abhoria. Their self-titled debut album will be out on February 4th. Check out their first single, “Mountebank”, right now.
  • Updates from Bindrune Recordings are always notable. Nechochwen have returned with the title track from their next album, “Kanawha Black”. Give it a listen here. That album should be out sometime next year, so keep your eye out for more updates.
  • I’m a really big fan of the new Anomalie album, Tranceformation, so we’ll close with the new video for the third single from that. Check out “Trance I: The Tree”, and remember to pick that album up, which is out November 26th through AOP Records.

Eyes of Perdition by Krook9
Eyes of Perdition

We’re officially past the halfway point of 2021, it’s swamp ass hot, and live shows are all of a sudden on thin ice again. What the fresh hell is this?! Don’t answer that, but just keep your ears on all the excellent metal this year has had, and will have, to offer. On that note, this week’s batch of shiny new tunes includes a debut EP from Eyes of Perdition that’s heavy on death metal, boils over with hardcore attitude and is fantastic all the way through, Infex hits all the early Testament thrash feels, Lorna Shore shreds eardrums with their sick deathcore, and Ænigmatum offer up some speedy, melodic, and technical death metal. Yep, another killer week here in the new metal roundup, and of course, there’s tons more to be found in the list below. Get after it.
