CANTO: Northless, Inexorum, Horizon Ignited, and More

Decent chance this is my last post this week, thanks to some wedding travel. The good news is that there are plenty of notable updates today.

  • To start, the progressive sludge crew known as Northless have signed on with Translation Loss Records, and have announced their new album. A Path Beyond Grief will be released on July 22nd, and you can check out the title track over at Brooklyn Vegan now.
  • From there, we’ll jump over to Season of Mist to check out the new track from Stoned Jesus. This one is titled “Porcelain”, the title track from the sludge rock trio’s new album, with a release date still pending.
  • And then over at Prosthetic, Yatra shared a new single and visualizer for “Reign of Terror”. Check it out over at Distorted Sound. That’s the third single taken from Born into Chaos, which is set for a June 10th release.
  • Collectively, we think pretty highly of Inexorum, so we should probably include that as well. “Memoriae Sacrum” can be streamed over at Metal Injection. As a reminder, Equinox Vigil is out on June 17th through Gilead Media.
  • Finally, we’ll close with Horizon Ignited. Below is the new video for “Beyond Your Reach”, the latest single taken from Towards The Dying Lands. That album drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Axioma, Allegaeon, Behemoth, and More

Behemoth 2018

Last Canto this week! Yet… it’s only Wednesday.

  • Leading off the day, we have the new track and video from Axioma for “Septic”, which is streaming over at Metal Injection. Their sophomore full-length album, Sepsis, is out on June 24th through Translation Loss Records. I’ve seen some hype for this one, so it’s going to stay on my radar for sure.
  • I didn’t want to share this news because it fucking sucks and I try to keep this post strictly to more positive updates, but Trevor Scott Strnad has passed away. The vocalist of The Black Dahlia Murder will always be an absolute legend, and not much more needs to be added at this point. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and everyone else close to him.
  • Behemoth have finally revealed details surrounding their next album. Opvs Contra Natvram will be out on September 16th through Nuclear Blast. With the news, they also released the studio version and a video for “Ov My Herculean Exile”, a track we’ve seen emerge from live footage and such.
  • Symphonic metallers Visions of Atlantis released the third single from Pirates, titled “Master the Hurricane”. That album is out this coming Friday through Napalm Records.
  • And then closing out the day with a new clip from Allegaeon feels like a good idea. This is the video for “Called Home”, a track taken from Damnum, which was released earlier this year through Metal Blade. They’ve also got a bunch of tour dates on the schedule, if you’re into that.

By the time this publishes, I’ll be photographing my second show of the year. Which is wild.

CANTO: Rammstein, Watain, Battle Beast, and More

Watain 2022

Content is weirdly light for a Friday, which is the only reason I’m dropping this in.

  • I’ve heard some folks chatting about Battle Beast somewhat recently, so we can start there. Their new single, “Tempest of Blades”, is streaming now. Circus of Doom was a release from earlier this year, but today they unveiled a bonus version… hence the new single.
  • One of the more notable release today was The Agony & Ecstasy Of Watain, which is out through Nuclear Blast. So, on that note, we should all check out the new live video for “Ecstasies in Night Infinite”. Watain is awesome.
  • Interested in a little slamming brutal death metal in your Friday? If so, here’s some new stuff from Extermination Dismemberment, titled “Agony Incarnate”. That new single is available through Unique Leader.
  • Hey, here’s something I want to attend. Post. Festival 2022 will feature the likes of Pelican, Boris, Junius, and a lot of other things I like. The event takes place the weekend of September 9th in Indianapolis. Tickets can be acquired here.
  • There’s a new Rammstein album out today that I need to listen to. Do I think Zeit will live up to their last effort? I can’t imagine it would because that album was incredible. Regardless, we’ll wrap up the week with the gnarly video for “Angst”.
