CANTO: Khemmis, Sunn O))), Borknagar, and More!

Anybody else watch Lords of Chaos yet? Actually… neither have I.

  • Look at Khemmis doing stuff! The Denver doomers have just signed on with Nuclear Blast. Looks like new music and some tours in the works as well. I love these guys, I hope they make lots of money.
  • Sunn O))) have announced some fun Record Store Day happenings. Their next album, Life Metal, will be released on both CD and vinyl come April 13th via indie retail. I guess that’s cool if you don’t want to wait a couple extra days? Not sure what to pull from this news exactly, tbh.
  • So. Borknagar has a new lead vocalist. Who is it you ask? None other than I.C.S. Vortex… who was already doing a lot of vocal stuff anyway? Anyway. Andreas “Vintersorg” Hedlund has decided to step down, and there seems to be no negative feelings anywhere… So let’s see what happens next!
  •  A music video! “Blood Of The Levant” from Queensrÿche. Casual reminder that The Verdict, is out at the end of the week.

  • Leading off, Agoraphobic Nosebleed will be replacing Wormrot at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. As one of the maybe five jackasses to have missed them last time out, I’m quite pumped about this. Noothgrush have been tapped to replace English Dogs, who also had to pull out of their appearance.

“Hindered by sober restlessness. Submitting to the amber crutch. The theme in my aching prose. Fantasizing the sight of Manhattan; that pour of a bitter red being that escapes a thin frame. The rebirth of mutual love. The slipping on gloves to lay tenderly.”

Getting ready for soccer while simultaneously finding some clippings to entertain you cretins. Because I care.
