CANTO: Crown, Nightfall, The Amenta, and More

Ok, getting back on track for the rest of week. Something like that.

  • The highly anticipated sophomore release from Crown, The End Of All Things, is steadily approaching. Today, they released the new single, “Shades”. The official release date is set for April 16th, through Pelagic Records, with pre-orders also available at that link. I’m definitely excited about this one.
  • For those that can’t wait an extra day for the release of At Night We Prey, I have good news. Nightfall is streaming their new album in full at this link. But, like I said, it’s out officially tomorrow through Season of Mist, and you can still snag a physical copy if you feel so inclined.
  • Atreyu news for anyone that might be interested. Today they released two new tracks, “Warrior” and “Underrated”, the former of which features Travis Barker, which is pretty cool. Of course, those releases also came with a new album announcement. Baptize will be out on June 4th through Spinefarm Records, and pre-orders are already up.
  • For those planning on checking out Roadburn Redux, and you should, another slew of bands was announced today. The list includes Primitive Man, Mizmor, Wayfarer, and more. Here’s some more info, if you need it.
  • And we’ll close with a new video clip from The Amenta for “Psoriastasis”. Revelator is out now through Debemur Morti Productions. Dang, solid roundup today…

The word of the day, is “dumb”. As in, other people’s inability to pay attention created a dumb waste of my time.

It’s cold and that’s pretty much all I’ve got. Take that as you will. But, you know what warms me up? Another list of metal’s new releases — so, I’m in luck and you are too. Exactly what you are wondering…read on.

The UK’s Deitus return with their blasphemous second full length, Via Dolorosa, which finds the band leaning a little harder on the pure metal side of the black metal spectrum but still intense and still wildly entertaining. Next up, and another I, Voidhanger release, is Devil Worshipper on Music For the Endtimes and being that Ævangelist is in mastermind Matron Thorn’s wheelhouse, expect the same sort of extreme disdain for life, limb and existence as we know it on this debut. Moving right along, and with another D in the alphabet, is Dødsferd on Diseased Remnants of a Dying World which is Greece’s answer to raw black metal with a DSBM bent, and closing out the top slots is a Cronos fronted Venom on Storm the Gates so lay down your souls to the gods rock ‘n’ roll and get venomized — mileage may vary but it’s Venom so, there’s that.

I’m warmed…somewhat, but by the end of this list I’ll be toasty. Get in there and start a fire for yourself. Continue reading
