CANTO: Jungle Rot, Besvärjelsen, Witherfall, and More

And we’re back!

  • Swedish rock collective Besvärjelsen released a new single from their upcoming new album, this one titled “The Cardinal Ride”. That new album, Atlas, is out on May 27th through Magnetic Eye Records. This one is on my list for sure.
  • Witherfall have teamed up with Adroit Theory Brewing Company to release the Shadows Black IPA… which conveniently happens to be my favorite style of beer. There’s also a limited edition shirt! Anyway, get the full scoop here.
  • Reeking Aura, the death and doom act out of New York and New Jersey, are releasing Blood And Bonemeal on July 29th through Profound Lore. Check out the visualizer for “Seed The Size Of A Spider’s Eye” here.
  • We’ll wrap up the week with the new video from death metal legends Jungle Rot. The clip below is for “Genocidal Imperium”, a track from A Call to Arms. That album dropped this past Friday through Unique Leader, and it’s awesome.

Aeviterne‘s debut The Ailing Facade hasn’t been out long and has already garnered a ton of favorable press and chatter around the metal world for its unique take on experimental death metal. Wide ranging beast would be one way to put it but that misses the musical genius of this band. Experience it, you must. Buke sat down with drummer Jacyszyn to discuss the new album as well as drummer techniques and how Phil from AC/DC was a huge influence, defining the band’s sound, what excites him as an artist and the vinyl journey, and so much more. We now present that conversation to you in its entirety so grab your drink of choice, a chair, and enjoy.

CANTO: Cave In, Pyrithe, Ithaca, and More

Slowly, but surely, I am catching up on life.

  • We’ll open with the latest from Cave In. The second single from Heavy Pendulum was unveiled today, titled “Blinded By A Haze”. And yes, it’s another good one. As a reminder, that album is out on May 20th through Relapse Records.
  • If you missed it, Pyrithe announced details surrounding their long-awaited debut full-length not too long ago. Monuments To Impermanence is out on April 29th through Gilead Media, and today they shared a new single through Decibel. Give “Ekphrastik I” a listen here.
  • Pivoting to some tour news for the sake of mixing things up, Moonspell have announced North American dates with Swallow The Sun and Witherfall. Those dates are in August and September, and tickets are available here.
  • Ithaca shared a new track today, titled “In The Way”, which is the opener from They Fear Us. Their second album is set for a July 29th release through Hassle Records.
  • Texas death/black metal act Haunter shared a clip from “Chained At The Helm Of Eschaton”, a track taken from Discarnate Ails. That album drops next month through Profound Lore.
  • Closing with new material from Clutch feels like the right thing to do, so here’s the video for “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)”. Fun fact, that video was directed by David Brodsky. Of course, it’s can be streamed here as well.

CANTO: Cradle of Filth, Bewitcher, Slaegt, and More

What a stupidly annoying Monday today was.

  • We can start with a new tour announcement, featuring Bewitcher and Nite. Those dates out west run through April, kicking off on the 17th in Boise. Tickets can be purchased here.
  • Danish collective Slaegt unveiled a new lyric video for “Deceived By An Amethyst” (technically Friday, I believe), which you can watch here. That’s a track taken from their new album, Goddess, which is out now through Century Media.
  • Nighted, the new black metal synthwave duo featuring Ivo Henzi (Cellar Darling, ex-Eluveitie), have released their debut single. “Aeons” is available through Klang Machine Records, with a new album titled Absence on the way as well.
  • Luminous Vault have a new album coming in the near future. Animate the Emptiness will be out on May 20th through Profound Lore, and “Regeneration” is available for streaming right now.
  • Why yes, we will close with the new video from Cradle of Filth. Taken from Existence Is Futile, check out the clip for “How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose?” below. That video premiered as part of their “Infernal Vernal Equinox Deadstream”, and now it’s available to everyone, which is cool.
