Fall is upon us and I am not one bit upset about it.

CANTO: Between The Buried And Me, Ihsahn, Finntroll, and More

ihsahn

Seems like a quiet day out there, but I’m sure I’ll find something.

  • Between The Buried And Me are going to be hosting a weekend streaming event in which they will be performing Colors in its entirety. There are two performance, on August 7th and 8th, and then a live Q&A on the 9th. Awesome stuff.
  • Finntroll are dropping their first new album in seven years. Vredesvävd will be out on September 18th through Century Media Records and you can hear the first new single, “Ormfolk”, right now.
  • Knotfest at Sea has been postponed indefinitely. The Slipknot festival was set to take place next month, before being rescheduled to August 2021. Now, however, we will cross our fingers and hope that it happens at some point in the future at all.
  • And here’s the confirmation we were looking for. Ihsahn has announced his next EP, Pharos, drops on September 11th. That will be out through Candlelight Records and you can check out the first single, “Spectre At The Feast”, immediately below.

CANTO: Every Time I Die, Lesser Glow, …and Oceans, and More

Quiet day everywhere except in my mind.

  • It seems as though Every Time I Die has teased about half a minute of new music. If anyone has managed to form an opinion off of those brief seconds, the floor is all yours!
  • Not the most surprising thing, but Rocklahoma 2020 has been canceled. The event, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, made the announcement yesterday. Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, and Staind were the planned headliners.
  • Lesser Glow have a new album dropping on May 29th through Pelagic Records called Nullity. A track titled “The Great Imitator” is streaming now, and a pre-order link is available for you to take advantage of.
  • We’ll close with a new music video from …and Oceans for the track “Five of Swords”. Their next album, Cosmic World Mother, drops on May 8th through Season of Mist.

CANTO: Knotfest, Full of Hell, Currents, and More

Full_of_Hell_portrait-2

I hope gluttony treated everyone well last week.

  • Let’s begin with a tour. Those are always fun and easy. Exist have announced that they will be joining Monotheist and Replacire for a brief tour this coming February. Mostly east coast dates, which is good news for me.
  • In a huge development from this past weekend, Knotfest Mexico didn’t go so well. Slipknot had to cancel their headlining appearance because fans had broken the barricade directly in front of the stage. In response? Said fans lit stuff on fire. Yay! (And by yay I mean boooo.)
  • Bummer news. Full of Hell had their van stolen. And with it tons of gear and clothing, obviously. The good news is that they received a ton of support, financial and otherwise. Hopefully 2020 brings these guys good things, because they rule.
  • Currents dropped a new music video for “Poverty of Self” a couple days ago. Their second studio album will be out sometime next spring, but you can catch them on a few more European dates through the 7th. Anyway, enjoy the vid.
