CANTO: Unleash The Archers, Misery Index, Xandria, and More

Wolves In the Throne Room


Let’s see how quickly I can find four or five items to share from our inbox…

  • We’ll start with Unleash The Archers, who revealed “Acoustipex”, a reimagined version of the Apex title-track. A playthrough video is available here. The 5th anniversary edition of that album drops on November 18 through Napalm Records.
  • Symphonic metallers Xandria are releasing a new album, The Wonders Still Waiting, on February 3. That will also be out through Napalm Records, and a new single titled “Ghosts” can be seen and heard here.
  • Roadburn 2023 announced the first wave of artists, and it is expectedly impressive. Deafheaven, David Eugene Edwards, and Wolves In The Throne Room are among the names. I’m going to get to this some year, I promise.
  • Closing out, we have a new video from Misery Index. Give the clip for “Rites of Cruelty” a watch below. That track is taken from Complete Control, which dropped earlier this year through Century Media.

CANTO: Tombs, At The Gates, Misery Index, and More

And I’m officially overwhelmed.

  • We can start the day with some Tombs, because I enjoy them quite a bit. Check out “Sombre Ruins Nothing Remains”, the RKGD audio remix of the Under Sullen Skies track. That single is the latest from the Ex-Oblivion digital EP, which will be available through Season of Mist.
  • From there, we have a pretty significant tour announcement. At The Gates will be covering a good chunk of North America this coming August, with support from Municipal Waste, Thrown Into Exile, and Enforced. They will be celebrating the anniversary of Slaughter of the Soul, so yeah… it’s kind of a big deal.
  • From there, we’ll check out new material from Astronoid. Give “Sleep Whisper” a listen here. As a reminder, Radiant Bloom drops on June 3rd through 3Dot Recordings. We’re all pretty excited for that one, if you weren’t previously aware.
  • And we’ll close out the day with some fresh new Misery Index. The video clip below is for “Complete Control”, the title-track from their upcoming new album. That one is set for May 13th release through Century Media.

CANTO: Origin, Killswitch Engage, Astronoid, and More

I don’t complain when my afternoon meetings get canceled.

CANTO: Cavernlight, Misery Index, Incite, and More

As of today, long run season is officially upon us again.

  • We’ll lead off with Cavernlight, and their powerful new track. “The Ashes of Everything I’ve Failed to Be” is streaming over at Brooklyn Vegan. That, of course, it taken from their sophomore full-length, As I Cast Ruin Upon the Lens That Reveals My Every Flaw, which drops on May 13th through Translation Loss.
  • Incite revealed a new visualizer for “War Soup”, which features Max Cavalera. Give it a watch here. Wake Up Dead drops on April 8th through Atomic Fire.
  • Alexisonfire have an absolutely massive run of shows upcoming in 2022. Spreading from May until October, they cover most of United States, with appearances at a number of major festivals as well. Get all the dates and ticket information here.
  • Apparently there are quite a few videos to catch up on today, and the next one comes from Kingdom Collapse. Here’s the clip for “Save Me From Myself”, the new single that’s available everywhere now.
  • And Monday will end with some new Misery Index. I guess technically Friday ended with new Misery Index… but I wasn’t around to share it, so obviously that didn’t count. Anyway, here’s “The Eaters and the Eaten”. That’s the latest from Complete Control, which drops on May 13th through Century Media.

CANTO: Misery Index, Absent In Body, Sundowning, and More

Not going to lie, there’s some cool stuff out there today.

  • Like Misery Index, who announced May 13th as the release date for their next album, Complete Control. That will be out through Century Media, with the first single being unveiled in the coming weeks. They’re also on tour with Origin and Wolf King this coming May, so busy times are ahead.
  • Sundowning, the German post-metal collective, have announced their first album in a decade. In the Light of Defeat, I Cease to Exist will drop on March 25th through Isolation Records. For a glimpse of what’s to come, check out “A Prison, A Cage”, right now.
  • Tool, a band I shockingly haven’t mentioned in awhile, are releasing Opiate2 to mark its 30th anniversary. That will be out through RCA Records on March 1st, and a short film will follow on the 18th. Pre-order that here.
  • Twin Temple entertained us today with the new video for “Let’s Have A Satanic Orgy”. They’re currently on tour with Ghost and Volbeat, if you weren’t aware.
  • And we’ll close with the new track from Absent In Body, titled “Sarin”. The debut album from the project featuring members of Amenra, Neurosis, and Sepultura is set for a March 25th release through Relapse Records. And no, I cannot wait.
