CANTO: Skindred, Toxic Ruin, Cradle of Filth, and More

This week has been quietly gnarly. At least tomorrow is the day before Friday? Is that a weird perspective?

CANTO: Mountain Caller, Helfir, Lizzy Borden, and More

The beer scene in Virginia is meh.

  • Skindred are re-releasing their second album, Roots Rock Riot, on February 26th through Hassle Records. It will be the first vinyl release of the record, and will feature previously unheard bonus tracks. Pre-order options available here.
  • Helfir have released a new track, “Traces Of You”, in the form of a lyric video. It’s the second single take from The Journey, which drops on November 6th through My Kingdom Music.
  • Lizzy Borden is releasing a new greatest hits collection, titled Best of Lizzy Borden, Vol. 2, digitally on November 13th through Metal Blade. The collection will feature a couple covers, including “Pet Sematary” by the Ramones. Stream that track, and pre-order it here, if you feel so inclined.
  • This new video from Mountain Caller is pretty awesome, so let’s close with that. This is “I Remember Everything”, taken from their debut album, Chronicle I: The Truthseeker. That drops on November 6th through New Heavy Sounds.

CANTO: Megadeth opens big, Black Sabbath postpones dates, and more

Megadeth

It’s another Monday and nobody is happy about it.

CANTO: Knotfest expansion, Sony buys Century Media, and much more! Kinda!

Knotfest-Mexico-2015

Hello, everyone! Welcome to another week of apathy and resentment! Let us begin…

Or don’t. Because I don’t like it at all. But hey, it’s a slow video day.

Quickies: Holy ****, it’s our 300th post! That’s more than all of Dan’s old blogs combined!

Is our title perhaps a bit self-serving? Yes. But it’s also more news-worthy than anything that happened today, so you’ll just have to deal. Anyway, it’s a weekend, so let’s not waste any more time than we need to here, folks! Here are today’s Quickies–let’s see if we’ve missed anything in the world of metal, shall we?

That’ll about do it. Enjoy the weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday!
