CANTO: Necronomicon, I Prevail, Ingested, and More

“It’s not the way to cross the faith, the promise has been broken. My disease, everlasting. Let me bleed forever.”

  • We’ll start with a drum play-through from Necronomicon because those are always a good time. This one is for the track “From Ashes Into Flesh”, taken from last year’s Unus, out on Season of Mist.
  • I Prevail dropped a new video today for “DOA”, which features rapper Joyner Lucas. That one was taken from last year’s Trauma, which was released through Fearless.
  • Since news is fairly light today, I’m going to take this opportunity to share my favorite Instagram account ever this week. I give you… Albums of Bikini Bottom. My personal favorite is probably the one for Karmacode.
  • Ingested have released a lockdown video for “Dead Seraphic Forms”, which is a track taken from their upcoming new album, Where Only Gods May Tread, out August 14th through Unique Leader. Let’s watch this one together.

CANTO: Necronomicon, The Well, Chiasmata, and More

Three straight weeks from Hell begins… NOW.

  • In case you weren’t aware, some stuff was stolen from the Musonia School of Music that was once owned by the legendary Randy Rhoads back on Thanksgiving night. Well, a couple weeks later, some of the items have surfaced… in a dumpster.
  • Necronomicon dropped a new music video for “The Thousand Masks”. It’s NSFW for anyone still at W at this point in the day. Reminder that Unus dropped back in October via Season of Mist.
  • The Well have announced a run of shows in both Europe and North America. The dates run late January through early March. Support is in the form of R.I.P. on some dates, and Zig-Zags on others.
  • It’s a slow day, so let’s close with some prog metal. This is Chiasmata with the track “Absolution”. I am of the understanding that there will be a new album out in the near future.

While the rest of civilization is knee deep in pumpkin spice, we’re knee deep in extreme metal and crusty horror flicks. Don your costumes and get the old plastic pumpkins ready, we’ve got tons of metal candy to hand out. Let’s do it…

For their seventh album, black metallers 1349 revisit the chaotic and thrashy nature of Hellfire and it’s like spiked arm gear buried elbow deep in some unsuspecting angel’s throat, put that in your pipe and smoke it. Oregon based deathgrinders, Rank and Vile, get the lead out with eight new tracks of piss and venom. It’s short, to the point, and kicks ass – ‘nuff said. Shrine of Insanabilis swiftly swing the black metal axe and conjure up an even better album than their debut… wait, what? It’s true, seek it out. NecronomicoN have always had a unique sort of operatic take on death metal and this tradition continues on their sixth full length which just so happens to be perfect for a dramatic exsanguination. Alright then, you know what’s next. Seek out the music and DESTROY your wallet. Continue reading

I was in the woods all weekend and now I’m not. Which is a way worse situation.
