CANTO: Sanctuary, Wayfarer, Immortal Bird, and More

sanctuary.3.23.18.116

Hey! I’m back!

  • Let’s start off with nothing even remotely new to this routine… a tour announcement! Sanctuary will be rolling through some North America dates with Ghost Ship Octavius as support. Dates are in July and August, and Joseph Michael is still on vocals. He did well on their last tour, so that last bit shouldn’t be much of a surprise.
  • This is a run of shows I’m slightly more excited about. Wayfarer have added some east coast dates to their 2019 plans, and that is tremendous news. They’ll be joined by Falls Of Rauros, another favorite of mine. They’ll be touring starting in May, but these specific shows will be in July.
  • Immortal Bird are also up to things. Their next full-length effort, titled Thrive On Neglect, will be out on July 5th through 20 Buck Spin. In conjunction with that announcement, you can taste the new title-track right now. Oh, and they also have some shows coming up next month.
  • Fleshgod Apocalypse have released a live video for “Healing Through War”. This clip was taken from their “An Evening In Perugia” show. A casual reminder that Veleno will be out on May 24th via Nuclear Blast.

I’m going to try to do these more often because I guess Chris likes them for some reason.

Quickies: Big news from Century Media, Sanctuary’s new guitarist, and more!

Only one more work day stands between me and… Behemoth (and friendship. Happy, Dan?). Hmmm. This is a good situation.

That’s some creepy shit. Track is called “The Lash”.

Quickies: The Return of Sanctuary, the End of Nuclear Assault (?) and more

Early Quickies??? Early Quickies!!! Let’s not waste any time, folks–here’s what we missed in the world of metal today:

True story: this is actually the first HammerFall song I’ve listened to since “Hearts on Fire.” Which came out 12 years ago. Somehow, I don’t regret not keeping up with them. Shocking, I know! Anyway, that’ll do it for today. Check back tomorrow for more Horns Up!
