CANTO: Melvins, Municipal Waste, Criminal, and More

Today was a good day to be a Red Wings fan, just in case anyone was wondering (you weren’t).

  • Municipal Waste have tacked on some more dates to their 2021 tour plans. This latest batch of shows are with Crowbar (which is awesome), are the dates run from November 13th through the 23rd. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday.
  • Criminal has announced a new album, Sacrificio, which will be released on September 17th through Metal Blade Records. Check out the first single and video from that album, titled “Zona De Sacrificio”, right now.
  • The Melvins have announced a newly recorded, career-spanning acoustic collection titled Five Legged Dog. The collection will include 36 tracks, and it’s set for a October 15th release through Ipecac Recordings. It’s available for pre-order here, and you can check out “Night Goat” for a preview of what’s to come.
  • And we’ll close with the new video from death/thrash collective Toxic Ruin. Nightmare Eclipse is set for an August 27th release through M-Theory Audio, their debut through the label. The video for “Defiler” can be streamed immediately below. Enjoy.

CANTO: Iron Maiden, Necronautical, Act of Denial, and More

I have returned from California. What a nice thing that is.

  • Iron Maiden news doesn’t quite excite me like it used to, but that’s quite alright. Their 17th studio album will be another double album (which is… fine, I guess) titled Senjutsu. Pre-orders start on July 21st, with September 3rd set as the release date. Check out the clip for “The Writing On The Wall” if you want. There’s a lot going on in a very good way.
  • Municipal Waste have announced some dates later this year. They’ll be joining Volbeat for a couple nights in early October, as well as a run of shows with Circle Jerks in December. Any of these would be a ton of fun to attend… if they happen to fall in your particular region of the country.
  • Let’s toss in the latest from Act of Denial, titled “Your Dark Desires”. There are some big names in that project, for example Ron Thal Bumblefoot on this track, so I like keeping up. Negative is out on August 13th through Crusaders and Golden Robot Records.
  • We can wrap up with a little bit of black metal. Here is the new video from Necronautical for “Necropsychonautics”. That track is taken from Slain In The Spirit, which is set for an August 20th release through Candlelight and Spinefarm. Pre-order it here.

FallsofRauros.7.24.19.55

That superb owl wasn’t superb at all.

  • This came through last Friday but I was too busy doing mountain things. But… holy shit everyone this Migration Fest lineup is absurdBuried at Sea, Falls of Rauros, and Thou performing with Emma Ruth Rundle are the sets I’m most looking forward to. How about you?
  • The Black Dahlia Murder have announced an upcoming tour with Testament, Municipal Waste, and MeshiaakThose dates fall in April and May. I plan on doing everything I can to get to that one.
  • Faith No More, System of a Down, and Korn are teaming up to play a massive stadium show at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on May 22nd. Additional support will come from Russian Circles and Helmet. That is a pretty damn wild one-off show.
  • And we will wrap up with a new video from Northwind Wolves. This one is for “Lord of Winter and Death”. A little symphonic metal on a Monday afternoon, I suppose. Their latest, Mountains And Darkness, is out now through Black Lion Records.

tool 2019

Friday Canto because why not?

  • So Fear Inoculum dropped today. I may have been one of those people in the local record shop at midnight to pick up a copy. I regret nothing. But on top of all that, Tool have announced a North American tour in October and November. And you can bet your ass I’m going to do everything I can to get to one of those shows.
  • Mayhem released a new song today, news that probably got lost in the shuffle of everything else going on. It is called “Worthless Abominations Destroyed”, and honestly I kinda dig it. I’m genuinely looking for Daemon, which is out on October 25h.
  • Municipal Waste have announced a new EP, called The Last Rager, and dropped a new music video for “Wave of Death”. That EP will be out on October 11th through Nuclear Blast.
  • Fit For An Autopsy have released a new music video today for “The Sea Of Tragic Beasts”. That particular number is the title track from their upcoming new album, out on October 25th, also through via Nuclear Blast. Check it out.
