CANTO: Ufomammut, Massacre, The Contortionist, and More

It’s like… super nice out. So I went for a long run for some stupid reason.

  • Ufomammut are back, with a new drummer and recording plans very much in the works. After a year and a half hiatus, the Italian psychedelic metallers have announced Levre as their new drummer. We’ll keep a close eye on this as new material eventually comes our way.
  • Death metal veterans Massacre have signed on with Nuclear Blast, and are planning the release of their fourth studio album later this year. It’s been seven years since their last album, so let’s go ahead and add this to the list of things to keep an eye on.
  • The Contortionist have announced a live stream event, Clairvoyant – A Full Album Performance, scheduled for May 15th. Their latest full-length was somehow released way back in 2017, so it’ll be cool to see it performed live in full. Tickets are available here.
  • In case anyone was curious what Psychosexual sounded like (I was not and still am not), you can check out the video for “Devil From Hell” right now. A song name that makes my mind go right to The Black Satans. As a reminder, that’s the project fronted by Jeremy Spencer (Five Finger Death Punch). Unholy Hymns for the Children is out on May 14th.

Massacre had been around since 1984 as a heavy thrash band, but once Kam Lee came aboard, the band veered firmly into death metal. And the rest, as they say, is history. Continue reading

Quickies: Tours Galore, Dickinson Hates Punk, and EyeHateGod’s Worst Week Ever

Well then… yes. Kinda over this whole weekday concept. Some fascinating news coming at us today, though:

Still not enough to make me ever watch the weather… or the news. That’s what the internet is for. Idiots.

Oh, I forgot to mention the Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats tour. There. Now I didn’t.
