    I’ve got a couple of hours to kill before I head up to Vitus for Godhunter, Destroyer of Light and Immortal Bird. Yet at the same time, there’s nothing I want to do less than stay at the office. Oh well. I’ll solve that problem eventually, but in the meantime, here are your Canto:

    • Apparently there’s a Phoenix hardcore band that’s based entirely on Simpsons character Ned Flanders. The band’s name? Okilly Dokilly.
    • Ghost have been forced to reschedule their upcoming visit to Philly. Why’s that? Well, a certain guy named Francis will also be in town that day. IRONY: TOP SCORE.
    • More cool stuff from the Lamb of God camp: the band’s going to be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 27. Very well deserved.
    • And finally, here’s a new Trivium song. It’s actually — and I can’t believe I’m about to write this — tolerable. Check out “Blind Leading the Blind” here:

    The band’s new album, Silence in the Snow, comes out October 2. In the meantime, I’m going to go perform an exorcism on myself. Later, kids.

    Keep it heavy,
