CANTO: Iotunn, Summoning The Lich, Culted, and More

Oh look, America broke. Who could have EVER seen this coming?? Anyway. 2/26 seems to be a popular date in today’s announcements…

  • Summoning The Lich just signed on to a deal with Prosthetic Records back in October, and today have announced details surrounding their debut album. The fantasy-themed death metal crew out of St. Louis will release United In Chaos on February 26th. Check out that clip for “The Nightmare Begins” while you’re at it.
  • Iotunn, the progressive metal band out of Denmark, have unveiled new album details. Access All Worlds will also be out on February 26th, through Metal Blade Records. Today, they released a new single for “Voyage of the Garganey I”, which can be heard at that link as well.
  • We’re still paying tribute to Alexi Laiho at Nine Circles, so let’s pause here and take a few minutes to watch this cover of “Downfall”. That clip includes members of Immortal Guardian, Helion Prime, and Oceans Of Slumber.
  • Blackened industrial doom project Culted are releasing a new album on, you guessed it, February 26th through Season of Mist, titled Nous. You can pre-order that here. Check out the new video for “Black Bird” immediately below.

Let’s talk about something near and dear to my heart; it’s October and nearly Halloween. ‘Tis the season for horror of all sorts, skulls and pumpkins, and fall vistas that look like the intro to many of the early Halloween movies. At least we’ve got that to get excited about. But also, it’s Monday which means new metal time so there’s another happy thing. This week brings us the next chapter of Pallbearer‘s trajectory which finds them back at their concise and to the point doom but, really, better than ever. Next up is a twofer of death metal starting with the brutal sort with Distant and the old school, rattle the coffins sort with Undeath. And, closing out the top spots is an alcohol fueled, four-on-the-floor, sinewy metal return from Raging Speedhorn. Better get your nasty decorating done and your costumes ready, or, just line up a long list of deliciously vicious horror movies. Dig in below for the rest of the new metal, tons to explore.
