I didn’t work today, but getting Canto out for you fine folks still counts for something, right?
To lead off the week, we have some announcements from Suicide Silence. Remember… You Must Die will be out through Century Media on March 10, and with that announcement they shared a music video for “Alter of Self”. It’s an entertaining clip, I’m not gonna lie.
Swedish metallers Beneath My Feet unveiled a new single today, titled “One More Time”, which of course came with a music video. Give that a watch here. In Parts, Together is scheduled for a March 3rd release through Noble Demon.
Closing out, we have another heavy new single from In Flames, titled “Meet Your Maker”. Give the video for the new track a watch below. As a reminder, Foregone is set for a February 10th release through Nuclear Blast, and yes I did in fact lock in my preorder several months ago.
Not going to lie, there’s some cool stuff out there today.
Like Misery Index, who announced May 13th as the release date for their next album, Complete Control. That will be out through Century Media, with the first single being unveiled in the coming weeks. They’re also on tour with Origin and Wolf Kingthis coming May, so busy times are ahead.
Sundowning, the German post-metal collective, have announced their first album in a decade. In the Light of Defeat, I Cease to Exist will drop on March 25th through Isolation Records. For a glimpse of what’s to come, check out “A Prison, A Cage”, right now.
Tool, a band I shockingly haven’t mentioned in awhile, are releasing Opiate2 to mark its 30th anniversary. That will be out through RCA Records on March 1st, and a short film will follow on the 18th. Pre-order that here.
Twin Temple entertained us today with the new video for “Let’s Have A Satanic Orgy”. They’re currently on tour with Ghost and Volbeat, if you weren’t aware.
And we’ll close with the new track from Absent In Body, titled “Sarin”. The debut album from the project featuring members of Amenra, Neurosis, and Sepultura is set for a March 25th release through Relapse Records. And no, I cannot wait.
It’s raining again today. And yes, I am just fine with that.
Sepultura have announced the rescheduled dates for the Quadra tour (finally). The new dates are scheduled for March 4th through April 9th, with support in the form of Sacred Reich, Crowbar, and Art of Shock. Legit, this tour should be a ton of fun. Get your tickets here.
Let’s toss in another tour, yeah? This one features Frozen Soul and Sanguisugabogg, as well as Inoculation and Vomit Forth. Those dates are a little sooner, spanning October 27th through December 12th. Personally, I’m going to prioritize this one a bit more. Tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
Swedish progressive metal sounds fun, so we’ll close with the new video from Loch Vostok for “Enter the Resistance”. That track is taken from Opus Ferox – The Great Escape, which is officially out today apparently.
If you’re reading this there are two possibilities at play, either of which warrant a hearty congratulations:
It’s the end of the year, and you found the strength, courage and forbearance to get through the infested muck that was 2020. Congratulations! I don’t know what 2021 will bring, but let’s put the future aside for a moment and just revel in survival, and talk about some great music.
It’s an indeterminate time in the future, after the apocalypse, and the collective hive mind has integrated into the data streams and come across this post in a random search string query to ascertain various data points about the distant past. Congratulations! I’m not alive to know what the Time Lords have in mind for the future, but let’s put that aside for a moment and just revel in whatever constitutes life in your existence, and talk about some great music.
Bask dropped a couple riff and beat rundown videos over on their YouTube channel today. The clips feature tracks “Ramble Beyond” and “Three White Feet”, the latter of which was taken from 2019’s release through Season of Mist, III.
Into Eternity dropped a new song, “Nuclear”, over the weekend. Feel free to stream or download it here, and be sure to check out the playthrough video immediately below. We can also expect a full-length sometime next year, which definitely does not suck.
