CANTO: Der Weg einer Freiheit, Blackbriar, …And Oceans, and More


Last roundup this week! Enjoy, or don’t. I don’t care.

  • Bookending with Season of Mist today. A new song emerged from …And Oceans titled “Likt Törnen Genom Kött”, taken from As in Gardens, so in Tombs. That new album will be out on January 27.
  • Blackbriar have signed on with Nuclear Blast Records, as they work towards the release of their sophomore full-length effort. Today they unveiled a new track titled “Crimson Faces”, which you can check out here.
  • Dutch pagan and folk metal veterans Heidevolk are releasing Wedekeer on February 24 through Napalm Records. Today they unveiled “Klauwen Vooruit”, the video for which you can check out here.
  • Hour of Penance are re-releasing Misotheism on January 27 through Agonia Records. Originally released back in 2019, it will now be made available on CD, LP, and tape for the first time.
  • Let’s transition into the weekend with a new live video from Der Weg einer Freiheit for “Eiswanderer”. That footage was recorded during their last headlining tour with Regarde Les Hommes Tomber and Bizarrekult, this past September. And, of course, that track is taken from Stellar, my favorite Der Weg einer Freiheit album.

Album Review:  GAUPA — “Myriad”

Psychedelic riffs, rock goddess powerful vocals, soulful melodies, and exuberant drumming are just a few of the awe-inspiring elements Swedish progressive stoner rock band GAUPA brings to the table with their sophomore full length release Myriad.  This enchanting band kicked off their discography in 2018 with an EP that quickly grew a fanbase.  Their debut full length brought in even more fanfare in 2020, and here just in time to make some year end lists, GAUPA brings all the heat with Myriad.  This album contains the same doom/folk/psychedelic influences from earlier releases but with sonic amplification and no holding back.  Here, the band unlocks their full potential and hits their stride in these eight mind blowing tracks.

CANTO: Woods of Desolation, Creeper, In Flames, and More


The start of another week. But at least the Red Wings notched a few wins this past weekend.

  • Since I live in the mountains now, let’s start with some atmospheric black metal. Woods of Desolation premiered a new track today titled “Illumination”. That’s the third single taken from The Falling Tide, their new album which drops on September 9 through Season of Mist.
  • Moving in a bit of a hardcore direction next, we have Creeper. Their new single, “Ghost Brigade”, is the first material released through Spinefarm. Sex, Death & The Infinite Void dropped in 2020, so we’ll keep an eye out for new album announcements in the months ahead.
  • The new Drowse LP, Wane Into It, is out this coming Friday through The Flenser. As such, check out “Three Faces (Cyanoacrylate)” over at Chorus. There’s an interview there worth reading as well.
  • There’s some real hype surrounding Foregone, the upcoming new In Flames album. So with that in consideration, we’ll tie up our Monday with the new video for “Foregone Pt. 2”. It’s a different vibe than the other singles we’ve heard, but that is definitely not a bad thing. As a reminder, that album is out on February 10 through Nuclear Blast.
