CANTO: Judicator, Currents, Avatar, and More


I took the day off. So here I am sitting on my couch watching the World Cup.

  • We’ll open with some metalcore. Currents unveiled a new track today, titled “Vengeance”. Give it a listen here. It also sounds like they have a big 2023 lined up, which includes an early tour with Parkway Drive and Memphis May Fire. Here are those dates, if you’re interested.
  • Next, we’ll pivot to some gothic rock. Die Oberherren revealed a new single and video, titled “The Blood or the Wine”. Their debut album, Die By My Hand, is set for a January 27 release through Svart Records.
  • Avatar shared details surrounding Dance Devil Dance, their new album which drops on February 17 through Black Waltz Records. Pre-orders are available here, where you can find the track listing and all that other stuff. Obviously.
  • The Majesty of Decay was officially released to the world today through Prosthetic Records, so it makes sense to end the week with the new music video from Judicator for the title-track from that new album. Give it a watch below, and I’ll catch ya next week.

CANTO: Visions of Atlantis, Abyssic, Cassius King, and More

Two down, three to go. And the week gets really interesting starting tomorrow.

  • We’ll start Tuesday with a tour. Visions of Atlantis are covering a decent chunk of North America early in 2023, in support of their new album Pirates. Get all the dates and ticket links here. And in case you missed it, that album is out on Napalm Records.
  • Actually, you know what? Here’s another tour. Parkway Drive have some headlining dates in the U.S. early next year, with support from Memphis May Fire and Currents. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday at this location.
  • Extreme doom metal crew Abyssic are releasing Brought Forth in Iniquity this coming Friday through Osmose Productions, but if you can’t quite wait that long you can stream the album in full over at the 666MrDoom YouTube channel.
  • And then we’ll move on to Satanic Tea Co. Why? Because the concept amuses me. The second single, titled “Human Tea”, which features Cryptopsy’s Matt McGachy, is streaming over at Decibel.
  • Finally, some stoner doom to round things out. Cassius King offered up a video for “Abandon Paradise”, a track taken from Dread The Dawn. Give it a watch below. That album dropped last Friday through MDD Records.

CANTO: Einherjer, Deadguy, Creeping Death, and More

Creeping Death

Well today sure was weird, but at least I’m caught up on writing?

  • Einherjer, a name I haven’t seen in quite some time, have announced details surrounding their first live album. Norse And Dangerous (Live… From The Land Of Legends) is set for an August 5th release through Napalm Records, and a clip for “West Coast Groove” is available now.
  • Creeping Death have announced a North American headlining tour with 200 Stab Wounds, Tribal Gaze, and more. Those dates cover August 16th through September 18th, and you can find ticket information here.
  • Parkway Drive has marked a bit of a return with the new video for a track titled “Glitch”. It’s their first new material since 2018’s Reverence, so we’ll see where they take things from here.
  • We’ll close out with some new footage from Deadguy. Below is the clip for “Makeshift Atomsmasher”, taken from Buyer’s Remorse: Live From the Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest. That’s available exclusively through, well, Decibel Records. Alright, I gotta run!

“Oh take me where, the hockey players, face off down the rink. And the Stanley Cup, is all filled up, for the champs who win the drink. Now the final flick, of a hockey stick, and the one gigantic scream. ‘The puck is in! The home team wins!’, the good ol’ hockey game.”
