CANTO: King Parrot, Hierophant, Vomit Forth, and More

I almost skipped this today, but I couldn’t ignore all the fun stuff happening out there.

  • To start, we have new material from WAKE. Check our their new single, titled “Infinite Inward”. Their sixth full-length album will be out on July 22nd through Metal Blade, titled Thought Form Descent, and we are all very excited about it.
  • From there, we’ve got updates from King Parrot. The Australian grind crew are releasing their debut EP from 2011, titled The Stench Of Hardcore Pub Trash, on vinyl for the first time through Housecore Records and Dead Set Records. That will be out on June 30th.
  • Reunited thrash collective Mantic Ritual have returned with the new music video for “Crusader”, their first new material since 2009. They’ve also got a new EP coming on September 2nd, so we’ll keep an eye out for that.
  • Italian death metallers Hierophant are releasing a new full-length, Death Siege, on August 26th through Season of Mist. Check out the video for the title-track here.
  • To wrap up the day, we’ll opt for the new stuff from Vomit Forth. Below is the new video for “Predatory Savior”. Seething Malevolence is out on July 8th through Century Media.

CANTO: Monuments, Mantic Ritual, Voivod, and More

Well, today has been one of the longer days I’ve had in awhile.

CANTO: Cradle of Filth, Illudium, Mantic Ritual, and More

This has been a very bizarre Monday, let me tell ya.

  • We heard new stuff from Cradle of Filth at the end of last week, so we may as well follow all that up with a new tour announcement. They’ll mark their return to the United States in October with 3Teeth and Once Human. Those shows will include a full performance of the 1998 album Cruelty and the Beast, which is fun.
  • Ahead of the September 17th release of Conquering (through Spinefarm Records), Employed To Serve have dropped a new single titled “Mark of the Grave”. Give it a listen here, and also do that pre-order thing if you feel the need.
  • Thrash collective Mantic Ritual have reunited after a decade-long hiatus, and signed on with M-Theory Audio. It looks like they are preparing a new EP, which we would see sometime before the end of the year. Furthermore, for those left coast friends of mine, you can catch them live on August 26th at Supply & Demand. Dope.
  • I’ve been impressed with Prophecy Productions releases recently, so let’s close with the new video single from Illudium for “Sempervirens”. That track is taken from Ash of the Womb, which is set for an October 15th release. Pre-orders can be snagged here.
