So this MDF lineup v. 2022 is looking better and better with each announcement…

CANTO: The Absence, Heavy Temple, Vulture, and More

Why are the short weeks always the god damn longest?

  • Heavy Temple, a name I’m thrilled to be talking about again, have released the first single from their new album. Lupi Amoris is set for a June 18th release through Magnetic Eye Records (pre-order link, of course), and you can stream “The Maiden” right now.
  • Vulture have also shared information about their new album. Dealin’ Death will be released on May 21st through Metal Blade Records, and you can pre-order that here, while also checking out the new video for “Malicious Souls”. I encourage doing both.
  • Accordion playthroughs don’t emerge often, but when they do, it makes complete sense that it would be Korpiklaani sending them our way. Check out the clip for “Huolettomat”, a track taken from Jylhä, right here.
  • Lastly, the new music video from melodic death metallers The Absence. Check out “Choirs of Sickness” immediately below, a new single from Coffinized. Their 5th studio release will be out on June 25th through M-Theory Audio.

CANTO: RIP LG Petrov, Updates from The Lion’s Daughter, Varmia, and More

LG Petrov

Hello, everyone. Today was a rough one in our metal universe. We’ll start with one announcement and hopefully move onto some more positive news.

  • We lost another legend today. Entombed frontman, LG Petrov, passed away after a battle with cancer. I remember his announcement about his condition last August, and honestly this still doesn’t feel real. Entombed A.D. made a statement earlier today that you can read on their Facebook page. Fuck cancer.
  • Alright, what else is happening, and do we even care? The Lion’s Daughter have announced a record release live stream event scheduled for April 11th, the Sunday following the official release of Skin Show. Tickets and merch bundles are available at this link, and if you haven’t pre-ordered the album yet, you can do so here (Season of Mist).
  • London trio Urne have announced a new album and released a new single. Serpent & Spirit will be out on June 25th through Candlelight Records, which you can pre-order here while also checking out “Desolate Heart”.
  • And we’ll close with the new music video from Varmia for “Ten Blask Co Po Nim Śmierć” (“The Gleam and Then Death”). That track is taken from bal Lada, their third album, which drops this coming Friday through M-Theory Audio. Pre-orders available here.

CANTO: Skindred, Toxic Ruin, Cradle of Filth, and More

This week has been quietly gnarly. At least tomorrow is the day before Friday? Is that a weird perspective?

CANTO: Gatecreeper, Vintersea, Swampbeast, and More

I think this is going to be a pretty massive year in metal, and we’re gonna need it.
