CANTO: Lamb of God, Primitive Man, Cult of Lilith, and More


Sorry this is coming at you so late… no I’m not.

  • Lamb of God coming our way with some interesting collaboration updates. Looks like they are teaming up with Nightflyer Roastworks to create what will be called Memento Mori Coffee. Mmmmm… caffeine.
  • A couple new videos today. The first comes from Cult of Lilith, for “Purple Tide”. Their debut full-length drops on September 4th through Metal Blade Records, titled Mara.
  • Anaal Nathrakh will release their 11th full-length, Endarkenment, via Metal Blade Records, on October 2nd. They released the title-track today as well, which is fine. But that album art is, uh, something.
  • Primitive Man dropped a new music video for “Entity”, taken from the upcoming new album, Immersion. That one drops on August 14th through Relapse Records. And yes, it is heavy as shit.

CANTO: Infera Bruo, Oceans of Slumber, Korpiklaani, and More


I’m very much ready for a beer. Or that vodka pictured above.

  • Since I’m only moments away from grabbing my first Friday beverage, it makes sense to start with Korpiklaani, who have launched their own vodka – spruce flavored! They also have a live stream event coming in late August.
  • Stockholm’s Lik have revealed details behind their third full-length album. Misanthropic Breed will be out on September 25th through Metal Blade Records, and you can hear the first single, “Decay”, right now.
  • Infera Bruo dropped some album news today as well. Rites of the Nameless is lined up for an October 16th release through Prosthetic Records, and, as always, this type of announcement always comes with new music. Here is “Mining Shadows For Unlight.”
  • Oceans Of Slumber shared their new video today for “The Colors of Grace”, a track taken from the upcoming self-titled release. That album drops on September 4th through Century Media Records.

Guess who scooped up FITM 2021 tickets today? This guy. Nostalgia always wins!

CANTO: Killswitch Engage, Batushka, Intercepting Pattern, and More


  • Killswitch Engage is giving As Daylight Dies the vinyl treatment for the first time. You can pre-order your copy here. I’m going to pass on this one, but throw some Alive or Just Breathing my way and I will definitely catch it.
  • The Metal Blade version of Batushka (Bart-ushka) dropped a new single yesterday titled “ИРМОС II / IRMOS II”, and is available for streaming over at Bandcamp. It rips, but I still prefer the other Batushka. Yes, this is all still very confusing.
  • Grind legends Rotten Sound have announced a live show, that will also be streamed, on July 25th in Vaasa, Finland. Honestly, seems like a fair way to go. Attend in person if you’re cool with that, or stream it if you’re still hesitant.
  • Finally, this debut from German progressive metal outfit Intercepting Pattern for “Rebiogenesis”. The Encounter will be out on September 4th through Rising Nemesis Records.
