CANTO: Fallujah, Volcandra, MMXX, and More

Hey, I’m back! And I leave for the mountains tonight. So I’m not really back!

  • We can start with a tour. Fallujah and Psycroptic are co-headlining a run of shows in September and October with support from Interloper and Cognitive. This is going to be a lot of fun. Wish I could go. Oh well.
  • Now I’m going to jump to a couple things from yesterday. First, new Bloodbath. Survival Of The Sickest drops on September 9th through Napalm Records, and the video for “Zombie Inferno” is available here. Awesome.
  • And then Gaerea announced their third album, Mirage. That one will be out on September 23rd through Season of Mist. Check out “Salve” right here. I’m really excited about this one, and this leading single is a hell of a start.
  • Doom collective MMXX unveiled a new lyric video for “This Breath Is Not My Breath”, which features Mikko Kotamäki of Swallow The Sun. Full album details and still to come, but I can promise a lot of major names are tied to this project, so we’re going to keep tabs on this one.
  • Closing out our Thursday, we have a new video from Volcandra for “Resonance Cascade”. That’s taken from the melodic black metal group’s Border World EP, which dropped last Friday through Prosthetic Records.

CANTO: Spirit Adrift, Cabal, Primal Fear, and More

The Friday before what is going to be an insanely busy week coming up.

  • Leading off, Cabal have announced a new album through Nuclear Blast. Magno Interitus will be out on October 21st, and of course that update comes with some new tunes. Check out “Exsanguination” here.
  • Primal Fear are celebrating their 25 years as a band with a deluxe edition of their self-titled debut, which will be out on July 15th through Atomic Fire. Check out the lyric video for “Running In The Dust” right here.
  • Prosthetic Records have added Slugcrust to their roster, who will be releasing their debut album, titled Ecocide, on September 9th. The lead single from that album, “Echoless”, is available now.
  • New stuff from Vomit Forth emerged today, and that’s awesome. Here’s the clip for “Carnivorous Incantation”. Seething Malevolence is out on July 8th through Century Media. But you should have already known that.
  • It’s no mystery that we’re Spirit Adrift fans around here, so closing with their new track is an easy choice. Check out “Mass Formation Psychosis”, taken from the upcoming 20 Centuries Gone. That collection is out on August 19th and will feature two new tracks alongside six covers.

CANTO: Northless, Inexorum, Horizon Ignited, and More

Decent chance this is my last post this week, thanks to some wedding travel. The good news is that there are plenty of notable updates today.

  • To start, the progressive sludge crew known as Northless have signed on with Translation Loss Records, and have announced their new album. A Path Beyond Grief will be released on July 22nd, and you can check out the title track over at Brooklyn Vegan now.
  • From there, we’ll jump over to Season of Mist to check out the new track from Stoned Jesus. This one is titled “Porcelain”, the title track from the sludge rock trio’s new album, with a release date still pending.
  • And then over at Prosthetic, Yatra shared a new single and visualizer for “Reign of Terror”. Check it out over at Distorted Sound. That’s the third single taken from Born into Chaos, which is set for a June 10th release.
  • Collectively, we think pretty highly of Inexorum, so we should probably include that as well. “Memoriae Sacrum” can be streamed over at Metal Injection. As a reminder, Equinox Vigil is out on June 17th through Gilead Media.
  • Finally, we’ll close with Horizon Ignited. Below is the new video for “Beyond Your Reach”, the latest single taken from Towards The Dying Lands. That album drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Arch Enemy, White Ward, Imperial Triumphant, and More

After a couple days off, I am back to close out the week.

  • We’ll open up with some new material from White Ward that actually premiered yesterday. But since I’m a degenerate, you get it today. Check out “Cronus” here, the second track taken from False Light. As a reminder, that album is out on June 17th through Debemur Morti Productions.
  • Cynic released a live video of “King of Those Who Know”, with footage taken from a 2010 performance in Mexico City. Give it a watch here.
  • Imperial Triumphant is dropping a new album on July 22nd. Spirit of Ecstasy will be out through Century Media, and “Maximalist Scream” is available for streaming now. That track features Snake from Voivod, which is awesome.
  • Funeral Chic have announced that their third full-length album, Roman Candle, will be out on July 29th through Prosthetic Records. Check out the lead single, “Spit & Crawl”, with accompanying music video, here.
  • Arch Enemy is pretty reliable when it comes to new music videos, so that’s how we’re going to head into the weekend. Check out the clip for “Sunset Over The Empire” below. And if you want to purchase the single, you can do so here. They also have a new album out o July 29th through Century Media titled Deceivers. All kinds of good stuff.

CANTO: Psycroptic, Xenoglyph, The Cross, and More

Slowly, but surely, I am working through all of my concert photos from the past month.

  • Psycroptic revealed details surrounding their eighth studio album earlier today. Divine Council will be out on August 5th through Prosthetic Records. The lead single, “Rend Asunder”, is available for your listening pleasure now.
  • We’ve also got some fresh cosmic black metal coming our way soon. Xenoglyph are releasing their sophomore full-length, Spiritfraud, on July 15th through Translation Loss Records. Check out the title track over at Invisible Oranges.
  • From there, let’s balance things out with a little doom. The Cross unveiled a new video yesterday for “Behind the Stone Gate”, taken from Act II: Walls of the Forgotten. That’s out on May 27th through Pitch Black Records.
  • We can close with some new GWAR, why the hell not? The below video is for “Berserker Mode”, the second track from The New Dark Ages. That album is out on June 3rd through Pit Records, and you’ll have the opportunity to catch them live basically now through mid-June.
