CANTO: Electric Wizard, Bask, Exhorder, and More

electric wizard

Probably the last one this week, let’s be real.

  • Electric Wizard have announced a brief run of shows with Midnight in the eastern area of the U.S. Those dates are in November, and sadly I am not in town for the date closest to me. Booooooo
  • Bask revealing a whole lot of stuff today. Most importantly, their third full length album (Bask III), and first through Season of Mist, will be out on November 8th. Better yet, we also get some new material. Check out the video for “New Dominion” right now.
  • I enjoy Exhorder. And Exhorder just dropped a new album trailer where they talk about some of the topics on the upcoming new album, Mourn the Southern Skies. It’s out on September 20th. BRB gonna watch this real quick…
  • Bloodbather, not to be confused with Bloodbath, have recently signed on to Rise Records. Naturally, they are working on new material, and while we don’t have anything to share just yet, you can take a look at the new video for the re-released track called “End”.

This week has been weird.

  • Here’s cool news. Saor have signed on with Season of Mist. This can only lead to great things. It sounds like Andy is already working on new material, so we may not even need to wait that long for those things!
  • And now I have lots of new songs to share. First: Cattle Decapitation. “One Day Closer to the End of the World” dropped today. Their 9th studio album, Death Atlas, drops on November 29th.
  • How about Enforcer, since they have a massive North American tour with Warbringer coming up anyway? This track is called “Sail On”. Zenith, is available now worldwide on Nuclear Blast.
  • Most importantly (to me), is Cult of Luna. The video for “Lay Your Head to Rest” caught my attention today. Oh how I cannot wait for September 20th… that’s when A Dawn to Fear is released. In case you forgot.

I ran ten miles and Liverpool won something. What a day.

  • Cynic have announced a reissue of their sophomore effort, Traced In Air. I mean, it’s only 11 years old, but I’m still going to check out this revision either way. It comes out on September 27th through Season Of Mist, but here’s a preview.
  • Belphegor have begun working towards a 2020 release. It will be their 12th studio album, and the anticipated release is sometime in the summer through Nuclear Blast. Here’s a snippet of a new track called “Sanctus Diaboli Confidimus”, that was recently performed live.
  • In case you missed it, Sonata Arctica are releasing a new album called Talviyö on September 6th. They’ve been dropping trailers in the build up to this, and today I’m happy to bring you the fourth installment of said trailers. This one focuses on band history and some other stuff. I think. I haven’t watched it yet.
  • Let’s close with some death metal. This is a lyric video from Abythic for a track called “Drifting Among Shadows”. Their sophomore effort, Conjuring the Obscure, drops on September 11th via Xtreem Music.
