CANTO: 200 Stab Wounds, Ghost Bath, Obituary, and More


I missed this yesterday because I was Oceaning and Katatoning… and it was glorious.

  • Metal Blade Records has announced a new member to their roster, in 200 Stab Wounds. This… is awesome. Check out a new track called “Masters of Morbidity” here. All this comes as they set out on their co-headlining tour with Undeath, with support from Enforced and Phobophilic.
  • Ghost Bath have announced a co-headlining tour with Harakiri For The Sky, and having seen them live before, I can speak to this being one everyone should try and make happen. Anyway, those dates are next April and May, so you have a little while to get your shit together.
  • This came through yesterday, but I wasn’t around so you’re getting it now. Death metal legends Obituary are releasing a new album on January 13 through Relapse Records titled Dying of Everything. Give “The Wrong Time” a listen here. It’s solid. Just my very unprofessional opinion.
  • And this came through two days ago. Thy Art Is Murder announced the “Decade of Hate” tour early next year with Kublai Khan, Undeath, I Am, and Justice For The Damned. That is… immense. Good stuff.
  • I’ve been really into the new stuff emerging from In The Woods… lately, so we’ll head into the weekend with their new single titled “Master of None”. As a reminder, Diversum, is out on November 25 through Soulseller Records.

CANTO: Tombs, Amon Amarth, Xenoglyph, and More


The work week before vacation always sucks, but what are ya gonna do?

  • The most obvious thing to open up with is the massive tour announcement featuring the likes of Amon Amarth, with Carcass, Obituary, and Cattle Decapitation. Those dates are in November and December, and tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
  • If you like trippy, psychedelic black metal, check out the latest from Xenoglyph. They’re streaming Spiritfraud in full over at Decibel (accompanied by an interview). That one is officially out Friday through Translation Loss.
  • Oceans Of Slumber covered “House Of The Rising Sun”, which is pretty dope. That track is featured on Starlight And Ash, which drops on July 22nd through Century Media. Check out that visualizer right here.
  • Withered added some dates over the next few months around their festival appearances. Get the full schedule here, and be sure to drop in on one of these shows if your calendar allows for it.
  • Tombs gave us new stuff today, and I really like Tombs, so that’s the note we’re going to end on. Check out “Murder Legendre” below, the final single from the Ex Oblivion EP. All those tracks will be available on your favorite streaming platform soon enough.

Visions ov Hell: Quarantined With Nine Circles, Part 2

Coronavirus bah

Two weeks removed from Part 1 and we’re not out of the woods. And, quite to the contrary, we’re in the thick of it. Threat level 100….I guess. So much uncertainty, so much unknowing, so much virus, so much panic, so much hoarding, so much of all the bad stuff. We’re all tired of the ‘so much’ and it seems this thing is just getting a head of steam. Anyway, we’ve got a nice set of tunes to help push back the virus scares and bring forth the headbang; we’ve got Death, Obituary, Eyehategod, WASP, Katatonia, KISS, Mortician, and so much more. Indeed, all the bands you’d hold dear when trying to exorcize some demons and/or some asshole virus. So, jump inside that play button immediately below and try to forget, for just a second, what’s happening outside our windows. Maybe, just maybe, you find some sort of normalcy for a fleeting moment.
