CANTO: Judicator, Currents, Avatar, and More


I took the day off. So here I am sitting on my couch watching the World Cup.

  • We’ll open with some metalcore. Currents unveiled a new track today, titled “Vengeance”. Give it a listen here. It also sounds like they have a big 2023 lined up, which includes an early tour with Parkway Drive and Memphis May Fire. Here are those dates, if you’re interested.
  • Next, we’ll pivot to some gothic rock. Die Oberherren revealed a new single and video, titled “The Blood or the Wine”. Their debut album, Die By My Hand, is set for a January 27 release through Svart Records.
  • Avatar shared details surrounding Dance Devil Dance, their new album which drops on February 17 through Black Waltz Records. Pre-orders are available here, where you can find the track listing and all that other stuff. Obviously.
  • The Majesty of Decay was officially released to the world today through Prosthetic Records, so it makes sense to end the week with the new music video from Judicator for the title-track from that new album. Give it a watch below, and I’ll catch ya next week.

CANTO: Visions of Atlantis, Abyssic, Cassius King, and More

Two down, three to go. And the week gets really interesting starting tomorrow.

  • We’ll start Tuesday with a tour. Visions of Atlantis are covering a decent chunk of North America early in 2023, in support of their new album Pirates. Get all the dates and ticket links here. And in case you missed it, that album is out on Napalm Records.
  • Actually, you know what? Here’s another tour. Parkway Drive have some headlining dates in the U.S. early next year, with support from Memphis May Fire and Currents. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday at this location.
  • Extreme doom metal crew Abyssic are releasing Brought Forth in Iniquity this coming Friday through Osmose Productions, but if you can’t quite wait that long you can stream the album in full over at the 666MrDoom YouTube channel.
  • And then we’ll move on to Satanic Tea Co. Why? Because the concept amuses me. The second single, titled “Human Tea”, which features Cryptopsy’s Matt McGachy, is streaming over at Decibel.
  • Finally, some stoner doom to round things out. Cassius King offered up a video for “Abandon Paradise”, a track taken from Dread The Dawn. Give it a watch below. That album dropped last Friday through MDD Records.

CANTO: Memphis May Fire, Monolith on the Mesa, Arch / Matheos, and More

rammstein

I skipped this yesterday because I was in Boston all day for a shoot. I also had food poisoning. It was weird.

  • Arch / Matheos have released details behind a new album titled Winter Ethereal, scheduled for released on May 10th through Metal Blade. Better yet, you can hear a new single right now. It’s called “Straight and Narrow”. It is, as Chris put it, an embarrassment of riches.
  • Hey, a cool festival announcement! Om, The Obsessed, and Wovenhand are all scheduled to perform at the inaugural Monolith on the Mesa festival. The event takes place May 16th (pre-show) to May 18th in Taos, New Mexico at Taos Mesa Brewing. Freaking… cool, man.
  •  Updates from Memphis May Fire. First off, summer 2019 tour plans, which will include performances on the second stage of the just-announced Disrupt Festival, which overlaps a bit with the Warped Tour 25th Anniversary weekend shows. Oh, they also dropped a new video for “Heavy is the Weight”.
  • Let’s wrap things up with a little tease. What could this possibly mean? New Rammstein coming our way on Thursday? A new song… new album details? ALL OF IT? You decide.
