CANTO: Rippikoulu, Toxic Holocaust, The Amity Affliction, and More

I was warned to go home due to an oncoming snow squall. That has failed to occur to this point.

  • Toxic Holocaust are playing a special show in Brooklyn this coming Friday with Sacrifice. Feel free to consider this a kick-off event for their full North American tour with Soulfly, which begins February 3rd.
  • In today’s dose of metalcore (not really a thing), we bring you news from The Amity Affliction. Their next album is out on February 21st through Pure Noise Records. It will be called Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them and you can get a taste of the new material from the new track “Soak Me In Bleach” right now.
  • One more tour that I’m excited about. Rippikoulu are gracing North America with their presence this coming April. Only a brief run of dates, but the tour includes Chthe’ilist and Nucleus… so that’s a no-brainer.
  • We’re gonna wrap things up with some Finnish death metal tonight. This is a brutal video from Blåådpalt for the track “God of Razorblade”. Their upcoming album, Sliced To Perfection, is out February 28th via Inverse Records.

“I stare at the stricken, the follies of man, and the horror that lives in your eyes. And once we’re forgiven, the mind explodes in waves of terror. Burn my eyes, tear at the skin. The crawling beneath will begin. Side by side, pounding the heretic drums as we rise or we fall.”
