CANTO: Darkthrone, Lykotonon, Killswitch Engage, and More

How come I seem to get sick after doing literally anything these days?

  • Wayfarer and Wake are touring together this December. Unfortunately, it’s only a handful of dates, none of which are need me, but take a look at the full schedule here. If you can get to this one, do it, and make me jealous.
  • Some of the same people, but a very different vibe. Lykotonon revealed a new track from Promethean Pathology, titled “The Primal Principle”. Give it a listen here. That album is out on November 25 through Profound Lore.
  • Killswitch Engage have announced three shows in late December to celebrate the holiday season, in New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts. They’ll be joined by Rivers of Nihil and Unearth, so this is going to be a good time. Get tickets here.
  • Aborted are about to hit the road with Lorna Shore, so let’s drop in their new single. Give “Infinite Terror” a listen here, their first single in partnership with Nuclear Blast.
  • Of course, it would be a mistake to not close with Darkthrone… lest I feel the wrath of Chris. So give “Caravan of Broken Ghosts” a listen immediately below. Astral Fortress is out on October 28 through Peaceville Records… which is a week from Friday. Damn.

Initial Descent: September 25 – October 1, 2022

Autopsy

It’s time once again to put your money where your mouth ears are and inject what metal that money bought straight into your veins. AKA: new release list time. We’ve got another ridiculously bloated list this week that’s equally bloated with quality so no excuses. Seriously, I could’ve easily dropped twenty releases at the top in lieu of just four but that defeats the purpose of selection. What selection, you ask? That’s my secret and get out of my head…anyway, it’s death, death, and more death at the top as we get stellar new stuff from Autopsy, Acephalix, Internal Organs External, and Stormland. And, as mentioned, TONS below these just waiting on your hard earned cash and your bloody ear holes. Over the top? Nah, it’ll be October this week and I’m already in the mood, so deal with it. Seek, destroy, and we’ll be seeing you here throughout the week.

CANTO: Lykotonon, Autopsy, City of Caterpillar, and More

Tapering is my favorite part of training.

  • Tchornobog and Abyssal are releasing a split on November 25th through Lupus Lounge. Excepts of both tracks can be heard in this teaser, and pre-order details can be found here.
  • We’ve got new Autopsy coming at the end of the month, and today they unveiled a video for “Knife Slice Axe Chop” to get us ready. The official release date of Morbidity Triumphant is September 30th, and that will be available through Peaceville.
  • City of Caterpillar are releasing their first album in 20 years, Mystic Sisters, on September 30th through Relapse Records, and today they shared a studio video for “Paranormaladies”. Additionally, be sure to catch them on the road this coming November.
  • We’re going to close with a highlight from FITM. Lykotonon, the dark industrial project featuring members of Stormkeep, Blood Incantation, and Wayfarer, are releasing their debut full-length on November 25th. Promethean Pathology will be available through Profound Lore, and “That Which Stares In Kind” can be heard below.

CANTO: Threshold, Therion, Slugcrust, and More

Life is getting weird, folks. But with weirdness comes opportunity? Something like that.

  • To kick things off on this bizarre Friday of a bizarre week, we have new stuff from Threshold. The progressive metallers are releasing Dividing Lines on November 18th through Nuclear Blast, and today they unveiled the second single from that album, titled “King Of Nothing”.
  • Screw it, let’s grab another one off the Nuclear Blast pile. Therion just released “Pazuzu”, the latest single from Leviathan II. That drops on October 28th. So if you’re looking for some symphonic metal going into your weekend, you may as well start here.
  • It was Dead End Kings that officially got me hooked on Katatonia… forever. So I’m happy to announce that Peaceville is releasing the 10th anniversary of that incredible album on November 11th. And I truly cannot believe that release was 10 years ago. Anyway, here’s a preview link.
  • Closing out with something from the Prosthetic camp, we have the latest from Slugcrust. Their debut album, Ecocide, is out on September 9th, and the video for “Demise Promise” is available right below. Enjoy.
