CANTO: Mountain Caller, Helfir, Lizzy Borden, and More

The beer scene in Virginia is meh.

  • Skindred are re-releasing their second album, Roots Rock Riot, on February 26th through Hassle Records. It will be the first vinyl release of the record, and will feature previously unheard bonus tracks. Pre-order options available here.
  • Helfir have released a new track, “Traces Of You”, in the form of a lyric video. It’s the second single take from The Journey, which drops on November 6th through My Kingdom Music.
  • Lizzy Borden is releasing a new greatest hits collection, titled Best of Lizzy Borden, Vol. 2, digitally on November 13th through Metal Blade. The collection will feature a couple covers, including “Pet Sematary” by the Ramones. Stream that track, and pre-order it here, if you feel so inclined.
  • This new video from Mountain Caller is pretty awesome, so let’s close with that. This is “I Remember Everything”, taken from their debut album, Chronicle I: The Truthseeker. That drops on November 6th through New Heavy Sounds.

CANTO: Mr. Bungle, Helfir, Cult of Lilith, and More

This may come as a surprise, but I’m ready for a beer.

  • Mr. Bungle has announced a virtual concert experience that will take place on Halloween. Tickets for “The Night They Came Home!” can be purchased here. There are some cool bundles that also include The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny… so, you know what to do.
  • U.S. black metal crew Uthullun will release their first LP on November 13th through Wolves Of Hades, titled Dirges for the Void. You can pre-order the digital album through Bandcamp, or the vinyl through the label.
  • And as always, a couple tasty new tracks to share. We’ll start with “The Past”, from Helfir. The Journey drops on November 6th through My Kingdom Music, but check out the new track over at Friedhof Magazine.
  • Lastly, the new video from Cult of Lilith for “Atlas”. Mara is out now worldwide through Metal Blade Records. That new video can viewed immediately below.

CANTO: In Flames, Hellfest, Witches of Doom, and More

These days are slowly (quickly?) killing my sanity.

  • Alright, so you all need to start your evening by watching members of Spirit Adrift, Mutoid Man, and High On Fire cover Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ In The Years”. I would like to thank Two Minutes To Late Night for bringing us that absolute gift.
  • Canceled or postponed tours don’t only hit bands hard financially, but also their road crews. To help support the folks that make the killer In Flames shows happen year in and year out, the band has decided to drop a new shirt to benefit them. 100% of the proceeds go directly to their crew. Solid stuff, In Flames, solid stuff.
  • Speaking of canceled things, Hellfest is the latest festival to bail on 2020. Scheduled for the weekend of June 19th, this year was supposed to mark the 15th anniversary of the festival, and feature the likes of Faith No More, Judas Priest, etc. Instead, for obvious reasons, the organizers will try again in 2021.
  • And we’ll close with a new lyric video from Witches of Doom for the track “Sister Fire.” That track is taken from Funeral Radio, which is out now on My Kingdom Music. Do what ya gotta do.
