CANTO: Machine Head, Saor, Manticore, and More

I almost forgot it’s Saor release week! That’s a very good thing!

  • Speaking of which, Origins was premiered in full today. I had a break in between meetings and was able to check it out. It’s awesome. Can’t wait to get my hands on the vinyl.
  • Looks like we’ve got new Devin Townsend coming! Lightwork will be out through Inside Out Music on October 28th. Pre-order details coming soon, but for now you can check out this tour trailer which offers some sneak peaks.
  • Manticore have set July 15th as the international release date of Endless Scourge of Torment, which will be out through Hells Headbangers. Check out the recently released “Empty Eyes, Hollow Temples” here.
  • I Prevail have announced a massive two-leg tour with Pierce The Veil, Fit For A King, and others this coming September through November. Get the full scoop here.
  • To close out the day with anything other than the new Machine Head track wouldn’t be right, so the video for “Unhalløwed” is immediately below. As a reminder, Øf Kingdøm and Crøwn is out on August 26th via Nuclear Blast Records and Imperium Recordings.

Scrambling to get this done because why the hell not?

  • So everyone needs to spend a lot of money on Bandcamp next week. There’s a Juneteenth fundraiser next Friday, the 18th, where 100% of Bandcamp shares are going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Do it. Do it. Do it. I already have plenty lined up… obviously.
  • Weedeater have announced a U.S. tour this coming August. Support will be in the form of Joe Buck Yourself and Adam Faucett, and the party starts August 20th in Ashville. Tickets can be accessed at this link.
  • There’s no such thing as too much Enslaved, so here’s a new live video for “Sacred Horse”. That footage is taken from the recent cinematic tour, and you can pre-order that bundle if you haven’t already, out through Nuclear Blast. I forgot the exact date.
  • Machine Head greeted us with a new 3-track digital single today, Arrows In Words From The Sky, and you stream some of that here. That is also brought to us by Nuclear Blast.
  • And we should certainly wrap things up with the new Pain music video for “Party In My Head”, which is a vibe I can 100% fuck with. No word on new Hypocrisy things, but I do like me some Peter Tägtgren activity all the same. That’s also on the various streaming platforms.

“Left alone with no will, walking in footsteps of the fallen. Blinded by lack of reason, indulging the tales of doom.”

  • Machine Head dropped a new lyric video today for “Bulletproof”, a track taken from their recent two track single Civil Unrest. Snag the tracks here, and check out the clip here.
  • Down is celebrating the 25th anniversary of NOLA with a live stream event scheduled for August 29th. The band will, appropriately, perform the album in its entirety, with proceeds from the ticket sales benefiting the United Houma Nation.
  • I’m getting more and more excited for Utgard, so let’s take a peak that this most recent album trailer from Enslaved. A reminder, that album drops on October 2nd through Nuclear Blast.
  • And we’ll close with a new, but not that new, video from Lyria for “Run To You”. Why? Because it was shot in a god damn forests and forests are god damn awesome. Have at it.
