CANTO: Black Label Society, The Day of Doom Livestream, Ophidian I, and More

I doubt the inbox is as exciting as it was yesterday, but I’m sure there’s still plenty going on. Let’s see…

CANTO: Gojira, Dawn Ray’d, Culted, and More

We got tours!

  • We’ll start with Gojira, since they are fresh off the release of Fortitude and all. They’ve got a handful of headlining dates here in the United States this coming September and October, which does include a couple festival appearances. Tickets go on sale Friday, and you know I’ll be ready to jump on that.
  • Dawn Ray’d have announced a two-track EP, Wild Fire, set for a May 7th release with Prosthetic Records. It features two versions of the same track, and “Wild Fire I” is streaming over at Decibel.
  • And the second tour I wanted to highlight today is headlined by Beartooth. Those are August and September dates, with support from Wage War and Dragged Under. Tickets go on sale Friday as well. And while you’re at it, you may as well pre-order Below, which is out June 25th via Red Bull Records.
  • Couple noteworthy items out of Season of Mist to start the week with. First, they announced that the horror metal act Opera Diabolicus have been added to their roster. Their sophomore album, Death on a Pale Horse, will be out later this year at some point.
  • And then we have a new video from Culted for “Crush My Soul”, which we will round things out with. That Godflesh cover is taken from Nous, which dropped back in February. Pick it up here if you hadn’t already done so.

CANTO: Maryland Deathfest, Thy Catafalque, Sevendust, and More

Well. It appears my 2022 festival calendar is starting to fill up. Partly because…

CANTO: Of Mice & Men, Black Label Society, Nite, and More

People are a lot more excited about Mudvayne reuniting than I would have expected.

CANTO: Seth, Behemoth, Enslaved, and More

Ok, there is a lot to get to today, let’s have at it.

  • Is anyone else either staying up super late or waking up super early to pre-order the Cinematic Tour 2020 release from Enslaved? I’m going to do my best, because everything I’ve seen to this point looks absolutely incredible.
  • Behemoth are reissuing one their best works, Evangelion, on vinyl through Metal Blade Records. The official release is June 11th, and there a couple different variants available. Pre-order that one here.
  • French black metallers Seth have released a new song and video, commemorating the anniversary of the Notre Dame fire, titled “Les Océans du Vide!”. That’s taken from La morsure du Christ, which is out on May 7th through Season of Mist. Check out the video right here.
  • Bodysnatcher shared a cover of the classic Hatebreed track “Smash Your Enemies”. There’s a limited edition 7″ available here, or you can just check out the visualizer on YouTube.
  • And that’s enough for Thursday. We’ll close with the brand new video from Pestilence for “Morbvs Propagationem”. That track is taken from Exitivm, which is out on June 25th (Agonia Records).
