CANTO: Johan Hegg says things, Cynic gets dramatic, and Ex Deo is back!


Happy Friday! As always, I’m going to exert no effort in this post today.

Prisons and stuff. Why the Hell not?

CANTO: New Ocean’s on its way, Ned Flanders-themed metal, and more!

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,

Quickies: New Obituary, Steel Panther nominates the Pope, and more.

Moving right along with the week. I’ve got a Bullmoose run to make so let’s get these Quickies out there:

There’s a lot of good stuff going on in there. Well, I’m going to go do… other things. Enjoy your Tuesday. If that’s possible.
