CANTO: Tombs, Fear Factory, Decapitated, and More

Can I also start this with a bier, bitte?

  • We’ll start the week with Tombs, who have released another new track. This one is called “Bone Furnace”, and you can check it out over at Decibel. A reminder that Under Sullen Skies drops on November 20th through Season of Mist.
  • Decapitated have signed back on with Nuclear Blast, and are hinting that new material might be coming our way sooner rather than later. Moving on.
  • Burton C. Bell has quit Fear Factory, and it did not seem to be on good terms (which is probably a shock to very few). We’ll see how Dino and crew eventually respond.
  • Yo, check out this cover of Alice In Chains’ “Rain When I Die”, brought to you by Mastodon, Russian Circles, Mutoid Man, and more. It’s super fun and super good.

Initial Descent: September 6 – 12, 2020

It’s Labor Day but my guess is that a lot of you are laboring away like it’s not a holiday. The advantage of not laboring today is getting a jump start on this week’s list of new metal, otherwise you’ll have some catching up to do. Anyway, for some truly enjoyable and fun heavy metal by way of the good ol’ classics look no further than Vancouver’s Dead Quiet who offer a full length jam packed with it. For anyone looking for soul crushing sludge and doom, Jupiterian have you covered with six tracks of earthquake inducing jams. The Death Wheelers are like listening to a metal version of sleazy outlaw biker movie soundtracks straight out of the 70s but that’s the point and this week’s full length is all that and a bag of 30 weight oil, or DTA in this case. Last up top this week is Mastodon who share some rarities and a new track—-it’s Mastodon so it’s an automatic in for me. Whether laboring away or not, there’s a ton to dive into here, enjoy.
