CANTO: The Halo Effect, Allegaeon, Immolation, and More

Drafting this early because I have shit to do later. Happy Friday, gang.

  • Like I said, it’s a Friday, so that obviously means we have a few videos to share. We’ll start with the new clip from Allegaeon for “Of Beasts and Worms.” I dig it. That’s taken from Damnum, which drops on February 25 through Metal Blade Records.
  • And then we’ll check in with Kreator, who unveiled a live video for “Violent Revolution.” That’s taken from the 20th anniversary edition of the album, which you can pick up through Nuclear Blast. That reissue is absolutely loaded with cool stuff, just a heads up.
  • Plague Years, the death thrash collective out of Detroit, are embarking on March tour with Somnuri. Alas, they won’t make it to my general area, but this should be a fun one for anybody that’s able to attend.
  • The third, and not at all final, video we’ll share today comes from Immolation. This one is for “The Age of No Light”. That’s taken from Acts Of God, their 11th album, which is set for a February 18th release through Nuclear Blast.
  • Let’s close with the second single from The Halo Effect, the project featuring current and former members of In Flames and Dark Tranquillity. You’re familiar with the names. This one is titled “Feel What I Believe.” You can purchase the single here if you want… while I wait for album news.

CANTO: Midnight, Caliban, Ghost, and More

I’m finally starting to sense a brief spell of organization on the horizon.

  • Midnight have set March 4th as the release date of their fifth full-length album. Let Their Be Witchery will be out through Metal Blade Records, and you can preview what’s to come with the new single, “Szex Witchery”, right now.
  • New Ghost emerged overnight, so we should probably include that in the pile today. The new album, Impera, will be out on March 11th and can be pre-ordered here. Check out “Call Me Little Sunshine” right now, and tell me what you think.
  • Arizona groove metal collective Incite are releasing Wake Up Dead on March 25th through Atomic Fire Records, having just inked a fresh deal with the label. Pre-order details, along with new tunes, should be coming in the next couple of weeks.
  • Caliban have unveiled new album details. Dystopia is set to drop on April 22nd (I think) through Century Media. The video for “Ascent Of The Blessed” can be viewed below.

CANTO: Behemoth, Undeath, Mizmor, and More

Mizmor

How many weeks in a row have I said “if I can just get to Friday…”? Oh yeah, all of them.

  • One more (at least) massive tour announcement to share. Behemoth are heading back to North America with Arch Enemy, Napalm Death, and Unto Others. Those dates run from April 16th through May 15th, and tickets go on sale this coming Friday.
  • Undeath unveiled new details behind their sophomore album. It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave is set for an April 22nd release through Prosthetic Records. “Rise From The Grave” is streaming now, and you can pre-order the album at this location.
  • Cradle of Filth have announced “The Infernal Vernal Equinox” stream, scheduled for March 20th. They’ll be performing Dusk… and Her Embrace in full, along with other fan favorites. Tickets are available here.
  • Týr has announced a new live DVD, A Night at the Nordic House, which features a performance with the Symphony Orchestra of the Faroe Islands. That will be out on March 18th through Metal Blade. Check out the clip for “By the Sword in My Hand” right now.
  • Let’s close with the new, incredible, music video from Mizmor for “Wit’s End”. That, of course, is the title track from the new EP, which is out now through Gilead Media.

CANTO: Falls of Rauros, Meshuggah, Ingested, and More

Extended weekend, just in time for a sanity check.

  • Missed this yesterday, but Venom Prison released a new track and video for “Nemesis”. That, of course, is a track taken from Erebos, which is out on February 14th through Century Media.
  • The biggest news of the day, however, comes from Meshuggah. New album details have finally been unveiled. Immutable will be out on April 1st through Atomic Fire Records. Preorders start in a couple weeks, so we’ll keep you posted.
  • More good stuff emerged today from Falls of Rauros, who are releasing Key to a Vanishing Future on March 25th through Gilead Media. They’re streaming a new song titled “Clarity” over at Bandcamp. Spoiler alert: it’s different, and it’s awesome.
  • Slaegt also revealed new album details today. Goddess will be out on March 18th through Century Media, and you can preview that with “Fealty, Thunder Whip” right here.
  • And we’ll wrap up the week with the new video from Ingested. This one is for “Rebirth”, a track taken from the new album that is set for a release later this year through Metal Blade Records. Give it a watch below.

CANTO: Cult of Luna, Celeste, Abhoria, and More

I believe the dust has settled on the misery that has been the last week.

  • Wake have a run of shows coming up in March with End, Portrayal of Guilt, and Yashira. The tour kicks off on March 3rd in Philadelphia, and wraps up on the 26th. Here’s the full story, for those interested.
  • Godflesh & Lustmord revealed the first single from The Others (Lustmord Deconstructed). Check out “Ashen” here, and pick up the compilation through Pelagic Records here. There are a ton of awesome names attached to this effort so… have at it.
  • New Cult of Luna is always worth sharing. Check out “Into the Night”, a track taken from their upcoming new album, The Long Road North. That one drops on February 11th through Metal Blade Records. I know a lot of Nine Circlers have already pre-ordered that one.
  • Abhoria premiered a new single from their upcoming self-titled new album. Check out the clip for “Sunless” over at Decibel. That album is out on February 4th through Prosthetic Records, and can be purchased here.
  • Let’s wrap up with the new music video from Celeste for “Le Cœur Noir Charbon”. The avant-garde black metallers are releasing Assassine(s) on January 28th, and you can pre-order that here.
