CANTO: Battle Beast, Dragonforce, Nite, and More

Today seemed a bit quiet for a Monday, but I’m sure I’ll find something.

  • I suppose we can start with a tour. Battle Beast is joining Dragonforce for a North American tour this coming March and April. It all kicks off March 20th in Denver and wraps up on April 23rd in Berkeley. The Dragonforce tour actually starts March 7th, so there are plenty of opportunities to catch those guys if you’re interested.
  • Can’t remember the last time I mentioned Skid Row, so let’s go down that road next. They’re releasing a new box set, SKID ROW: The Atlantic Years 1989-1996, on December 3rd. You can pre-order any of the formats here.
  • If you happen to be on the West Coast, you should probably try to attend one of these two Nite performances. The first date is November 26th in San Francisco supporting Cradle of Filth, and the second falls on December 1st across the bay in Oakland with Unto Others.
  • I don’t feel like scrolling through the inbox anymore, so we’ll close with some more Dragonforce. Here is the new video for “Strangers”, which is taken from 2019’s Extreme Power Metal.

Welcome to 2016, everyone! Does it suck for all of you yet? I sure hope so! Kidding.

CANTO: Final Canto of 2015!

Guns-N-Roses

Last one of 2015. And I will not share any news on Lemmy. It’s too upsetting. Please read into that on your own time. Actually, that is precisely why these didn’t come to you yesterday.

Just the Tip: August 5’s New Releases in Brief

It’s new release Tuesday! Here’s what we’ll be covering on this week’s podcast:

August 5, 2014

Eluveitie – Origins (Nuclear Blast)

Nachtmystium – The World We Left Behind (Century Media)

Belphegor – Conjuring the Dead (Nuclear Blast)

Alestorm – Sunset on the Golden Age (Napalm)

I should also mention that this week also sees new releases from a wide range of other bands that we didn’t include for various reasons. We left out new stuff from Bölzer, Entombed A.D., and Wovenwar (because they’re not on Spotify) as well as Skid Row and Godsmack (because they’re Skid Row and Godsmack), so if any of these are of interest to you, check ’em out. They’re out there somewhere.

For now, take a listen to these for yourselves and then check back for our thoughts in Episode 17 later this week!

Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
