CANTO: Lorna Shore, Teeth, Hexen, and More

Dang, whole lotta stuff to go through in the inbox this evening. Weird.

  • We’ll lead off with a tour (maybe two), because monitoring those will be interesting for the next several months I think. Lorna Shore have a number of U.S. dates lined up in September and October, with support from Enterprise EarthSentinels and Crown Magnitar. Tickets can be purchased here.
  • Los Angeles extreme metal crew Teeth unveiled a nasty new single today. “Dreamless Hieroglyphs” is streaming over at Invisible Oranges, a track taken from Finite. That new album is set for a November 26th release through Translation Loss Records, in case you needed a reminder.
  • For the thrash fans out there, you might be intrigued to know that Hexen is reissuing their 2008 debut, State of Insurgency. The first vinyl and cassette runs (CDs will be available as well) of that album will be available on September 17th through M-Theory Audio.
  • Progressive stoner rock band Ealdor Bealu have signed on with Metal Assault Records, and are planning a new album release in early 2022. Better yet, they’ve also announced a new run of shows, scheduled from September 30th through October 9th. All on that other coast, unfortunately for me.
  • I’ve been listening to a lot of Rammstein lately (see also: always), so here’s a cover of “Sonne” as presented by Black Satellite. Check it out below. Seriously though… I’m curious what people think of it.

This Thursday feels like it should be a Friday.

CANTO: Lamb of God, Deathwhite, Rammstein, and More

  • A couple stories from yesterday worth (re)visiting. First, this tale of Rammstein drummer Christoph Schneider playing for a band in a divided Germany is absolutely wild.
  • Not sure if anyone caught the False news from yesterday, but it’s not a good situation. That said, I have to commend the rest of the band for taking the stand they have.
  • I really don’t bother sharing album sales figures anymore because, well, 21st century and stuff. But at the same time, the opening week for the new Lamb of God record was pretty impressive, even if a bit of a drop from their last release.
  • I’ve really enjoyed the latest album from Deathwhite, Grave Image, so naturally I’m going to close with their new lyric video for “Among Us”. That album is available now through Season of Mist, if you weren’t aware.

“Right here by my feverish side, the ghosts of those I loved. Gone is the cruelest longing now, undone this grief of mine.”
