CANTO: Sepultura, Sanguisugabogg, Frozen Soul, and More

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.
  • Let’s drop in some fresh death metal. Outre-Tombe are releasing their third album, Abysse Mortifère, on October 26th through Temple of Misery. Furthermore, you can check out a new track, “Tombeau de Glace”, over at the label’s Bandcamp page, which is awesome.
  • 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.

  2. 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.

Either way, it’s list time… Continue reading
