CANTO: Darkthrone, Lykotonon, Killswitch Engage, and More

How come I seem to get sick after doing literally anything these days?

  • Wayfarer and Wake are touring together this December. Unfortunately, it’s only a handful of dates, none of which are need me, but take a look at the full schedule here. If you can get to this one, do it, and make me jealous.
  • Some of the same people, but a very different vibe. Lykotonon revealed a new track from Promethean Pathology, titled “The Primal Principle”. Give it a listen here. That album is out on November 25 through Profound Lore.
  • Killswitch Engage have announced three shows in late December to celebrate the holiday season, in New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts. They’ll be joined by Rivers of Nihil and Unearth, so this is going to be a good time. Get tickets here.
  • Aborted are about to hit the road with Lorna Shore, so let’s drop in their new single. Give “Infinite Terror” a listen here, their first single in partnership with Nuclear Blast.
  • Of course, it would be a mistake to not close with Darkthrone… lest I feel the wrath of Chris. So give “Caravan of Broken Ghosts” a listen immediately below. Astral Fortress is out on October 28 through Peaceville Records… which is a week from Friday. Damn.

CANTO: Tribulation, Morbikon, Allegaeon, and More

Champions League… Work… Champions League… Work…

  • Morbikon, the blackened death metal trio featuring members of Municipal Waste and Finntroll, are releasing Ov Mournful Twilight through Tankcrimes on October 28th. Give “Cursed to March on Shattered Limbs” over at Decibel.
  • Allegaeon have announced their new (old) vocalist, welcoming Ezra Haynes back to the group. Since Elements of the Infinite is still my favorite Allegaeon record, I’m fine with this. Catch them on the European road this coming November with Rivers of Nihil, Fallujah, and more.
  • Power metallers Unleash The Archers are releasing a fifth anniversary edition of Apex on November 18th, which will feature reimagined versions of tracks like “Falls Walls”, which you can hear transformed into “Falsewave” here.
  • Tribulation unveiled a new standalone single, “Hamartia”, the video for which can be seen below. That’s their first new material since last year’s Where The Gloom Becomes Sound, and precedes their upcoming European tour with Abbath and Watain.

CANTO: Rivers of Nihil, I Am, Catalyst, and More

Rivers of Nihil


Mondays don’t tend to be particularly interesting, but let’s see what I can find…

  • As part of their extensive North American tour supporting The Contortionist, Rivers of Nihil have also worked in eight headlining dates spread through September and October. They’ll still be performing The Work in full, but with a special encore.
  • If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Texas death/thrash outfit I Am yet, here’s another opportunity to do so. They’re streaming a new video for “Surrender to the Blade” over at Decibel, a track taken from Eternal Steel. That album is set for a September 9th release through MNRK Heavy.
  • Moving to the technical side of death metal, Catalyst are preparing an October release for their second album. A Different Painting For A New World will be out through Non Serviam Records, and I recommend pre-ordering that one here.
  • And we’re rounding things out with some black metal. Skare are releasing their self-titled debut on vinyl through Amor Fati Productions on September 12th. Naturally, we have a track from that album below. Give “Threshold Into Death” a listen right now.

CANTO: The Contortionist, Lorna Shore, We Came As Romans, and More

I know I just referenced it yesterday, but we are officially one month away from Fire In The Mountains.

  • For now, we’ll stay focused on the items at hand. For example, The Contortionist have announced a headlining tour with Rivers of Nihil, with dates running this September and October. Tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
  • If you’re looking for a little noise rock in your day, check out the new stuff from Chat Pile. “Why” is available for your listening pleasure here, a track taken from God’s Country. That album drops on July 29th through The Flenser.
  • In the metalcore world, We Came As Romans have unveiled details surrounding their next album. Darkbloom will mark their first album in five years, and is set for an October 14th release through Sharptone Records. Check out the visualizer for “Plagued” here.
  • Hard rock quintet Wage War release Manic last October through Fearless Records, and today they shared a new live music video for “Godspeed”, taken from that album. Give it a watch here.
  • And we’re going to close out with the monstrous new track from Lorna Shore titled “Into The Earth”. Keep an eye out for Pain Remains, their new album which is set to drop sometime in October. More details to come, of course.
