Album Review: Stormo — “Endocannibalismo”

Prosthetic Records has been on something of a tear lately. From last year’s excellent Phobophilic album to upcoming releases from Dawn Ray’d and Sunrot, the label has been scooping up talent both new and established and seeing their artists release some of their best works underneath the PR banner. One release I have been particularly looking forward to is Endocannibalismo, the newest release from Italian hardcore act Stormo; while not a name I would have guessed I would see alongside the rest of Prosthetic’s roster, they nevertheless have risen to the challenge of putting out an album that stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the rest of the quality the label is putting out as of late.

CANTO: Obituary, Tribulation, Enslaved, and More


Hey! I bought concert tickets today! For a show… in August.

  • Fresh off the release of Dying of Everything, Obituary have announced a North American headlining tour this coming April and May. They’ll be joined by Blood Incantation, Immolation, and Ingrown. So, yeah, a stacked bill for sure. Tickets will be available here.
  • Enslaved unveiled another track from Heimdal, titled “Forest Dweller”. Check out the video for that one here. As a reminder (which I’m sure you don’t need), their new album drops on March 3rd through Nuclear Blast.
  • Blackened progressive metallers Dawn of Ouroboros have set April 21st as the release date for Velvet Incandescence, their sophomore full-length. That one will be available through Prosthetic Records, and you can check out the music video for “Rise from Dissolution” over at Knotfest.
  • Tribulation have revealed details surrounding a new EP, titled Hamartia, which will be out on April 7th through Century Media. With that, a video for a new track titled “Axis Mundi” can be seen below. Worth noting, this is the first composition by new guitarist Joseph Tholl. Personally, I like it. It’s a little different, but not in a bad way.
