CANTO: Euronymous Letters, Red Fang Wine, Septicflesh Videos, and More

1/3/2018. I guess it’s going to snow here tonight.

  • One of the bigger things to surface recently (to some people that aren’t me) was the Coachella lineup. A whole lotta stuff unrelated to what we cover, but I guess A Perfect Circle is on there. So that’s something.
  •  This was a weird thing to pop up today. If you want a piece of black metal/Mayhem history, you can purchase some of Euronymous’ original letters. They start at $250 and it looks like there are only a few left.
  • More alcohol branding. Red Fang are teaming up with Teutonic Wine Company to bring us the, appropriately titled, Red Fang Red. It’s a bit of unique blend, so I’m curious as to how well it’s received. Since I used to pretend to know things about wine once and stuff.
  • Septicflesh have dropped a new video for “Martyr”. They’ll be touring around these parts in the coming months. I’ll be there. I think.

Best of 2017: Zorn of Zornheym

Zorn (guitars), Zornheym

Sweden’s extreme metallers Zornheym released their debut full length, Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns, back in September on Non Serviam Records. Epic and grandiose are just a couple of words that describe the nine tracks found on this symphonic metal album, it’s heavy and extreme in precisely the right places but the atmosphere is the real star here and the super crisp production helps drive the point home. Zorn (lead guitarist) sent us his picks from 2017, head inside to see what he chose.  Continue reading

June 15, 2017

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, Septicflesh have announced their new album, Codex Omega, which will drop September 1 via Prosthetic Records. You can check out the new single, “Dante’s Inferno,” here. If you like Septicflesh, you should do that. If you don’t, this probably won’t change your mind. But good for them either way.
