CANTO: Behemoth, Thulcandra, Insomnium, and More

Behemoth 2018

All kinds of new shit to share today, and work still fucking sucks for those wondering.

  • We’ll start with Behemoth, who have announced the release of In Absentia Dei, the streaming event from last year that was performed in an abandoned church. That will be out on December 17th through Metal Blade, and you an check out the first single, “Evoe”, right now.
  • For those that have the ability to get to Northwest Terror Fest, I recommend that you make that happen, for I cannot. The lineup for 2022 features Panopticon, Ludicra, Repulsion… etc, etc. Honestly, it’s absolutely stacked. Tickets can be acquired here, but I expect them to go quickly.
  • Exodus dropped the second single (with lyric video) from Persona Non Grata, titled “Clickbait”. Just a casual reminder that the new album drops on November 19th through Nuclear Blast.
  • I’m also going to throw in something I completely (and stupidly) missed earlier this week. And that, of course, is the news from Thulcandra. It’s been forever since Ascension Lost, but I’m happy to share that a new album, A Dying Wish, drops on October 29th through Napalm Records. Check out the new track, “Funeral Pyre”, here.
  • We’ll close with the latest video from Insomnium, because that will let me cruise into the weekend on a high note. Below you’ll find the clip for “The Wanderer”, the latest track taken from Argent Moon. That EP is officially out today through Century Media.

I should do my taxes eventually…

  • Saint Vitus dropped a new track today called “12 Years In The Tomb”. Their self-titled album will drop on May 17th. This doesn’t apply to me, but they’ve got some shows in Europe coming up soon as well.
  • You know who else dropped a new song today? Deafheaven. It’s called “Black Brick” and holy shit do I enjoy it. It’s like… super heavy and stuff. These guys are the freaking best.
  • The full Northwest Terror Fest lineup has been announced. The festival takes place in Seattle from May 30th to June 1st. I could list off some notable names here, but the reality is that most of them kick ass and I’m jealous I can’t go. So here’s a link to tickets and info instead.
  • Aaaaand a music video from The Three Tremors for “Bullets For The Damned”, just in case you were looking for some excessively entertaining/hilarious heavy metal.

  • The Northwest Terror Fest 2018 lineup is herePanopticon, Falls Of Rauros, False and so many more. This thing is loaded. I can’t go, but holy actual shit.
  • Abbath-less Immortal’s new album is complete! I don’t really know what to expect from it, but it sounds like it’ll be available for us later this year.
  • Yay! Another new track from Tribulation. This one is for “Lady Death”, off of the upcoming new album (obviously).

June 5, 2017

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from over the weekend:

    • Leading off, Rammstein‘s Friday evening set at the Rock Am Ring festival was cancelled as the festival was forced to evacuate due to concerns over a possible terrorism threat. Thankfully, nothing came of the threat and the festival was able to resume the next day.
