CANTO: Ufomammut, Saor, Seventh Storm, and More

Not the most exciting start to the week, but at least we have some fresh Saor to check out.

  • But we’ll lead off with Ufomammut, and the new visualizer for their latest album, Fenice. Give it a watch and listen when time allows. That album is out now through Neurot Recordings.
  • Death Bells are getting up to some good stuff. First, we have this new performance video for “Hysteria”. That’s a track from Between Here & Everywhere, which is out on July 29th through Dais Records. Beyond that, they also have some live dates running from July 30th through August 31st, so be sure to catch them on the road if the opportunity presents itself.
  • Seventh Storm are releasing their debut album, Maledictus, on August 12th through Atomic Fire Records. This is the new project from Mike Gaspar (Moonspell), so we’ll be sure to keep eyes out for new music and preorder information in the coming weeks.
  • And, as promised, we’re close out with the new track from Saor. Below is the new video for “Beyond the Wall”. It’s a little different, and a lot awesome. As a reminder, Origins is out on June 24th through Season of Mist.

Ufomammut on new album “Fenice,” intense passion for art, and so much more!

On their ninth full length album, FeniceUfomammut are all about the finesse of their already well established and powerful, psychedelic doom metal. They continue to push their own boundaries and move the bar even higher for any band trying to chase them. And let’s face it, plenty have since Ufomammut have influenced countless others along the way. Just ahead of the album’s release, Buke sat down with PoiaUrlo, and Levre for an in depth discussion surrounding the new album and how it came to be, band history and how they eventually landed on their signature sound, using synthesizer, their intense passion for art as well as a discussion on album art, how hard Covid hit Italy and how they all handled it, how it was for Levre to join an already established band, and so much more. We now present that conversation to you in its entirety so grab your drink of choice, a chair, and enjoy.

God Mother

Draft day was last week, it’s finally warm, we’re still getting an obscene amount of good metal, and, needless to say, all this makes me happy. And, the fact that it’s Monday doesn’t phase me one bit. Alright then, new metal and we got it and you need it so dig in and see what’s up this week…everyone’s favorite d-beat-grind-hardcorists God Mother are back with an absolute steamroller of an EP, the undisputed kings of power doom, Ufomammut, grace us with a killer album, Tzompantli offers up a very unique and very heavy take on death-doom, Tenebro goes whole hog on the Italian horror movie love by way of gritty and nasty death metal, and there’s an unbelievably long list that follows to entertain any tastes. No excuses, go get them. Oh, want to see your band here in the future? Get in touch, contact info awaits on the about page. See you here throughout the week…

CANTO: Anomalie, Deathsomnia, Kowloon Walled City, and More

Days off no longer exist. Apparently. Late-stage capitalism sure is fun.

  • Anomalie, one my favorite black metal projects, has set November 5th as the release date for Tranceformation. Their fourth studio album will be out through AOP Records, and you can stream the first new track from that effort, “Trance II: Relics”, right here.
  • Deathsomnia released You Will Never Find Peace last Friday through Isolation Records, and today they gave us a new video for “Void Oblivion”. That track features Gabriel Franco of Unto Others (formerly Idle Hands), which is an added bonus.
  • And then we’ve got new material from Emma Ruth Rundle, another one of my personal favorites. Engine of Hell is also set for a November 5th release through Sargent House, and a clip for “Return” is available right here.
  • Oh shit! I almost forgot about this from yesterday. Kowloon Walled City officially have a new album on the horizon. Piecework will be out on October 8th through Gilead Media and Neurot Recordings.
  • Zombies are fun, so let’s close with the new clip from Ice Nine Kills for “Rainy Day”. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood, which is out on October 15th through Fearless Records.
