Donuts & CANTO: Behemoth, Exodus, Fear Factory and more!

Behemoth

May 9, 2017

Good morning. It’s been a minute. But now that school and final exams are done for the semester, it’s time, once again, to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off with something I know will make our Literati Overlord happy, Behemoth frontman Nergal revealed that the band has started writing the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist. Unfortunately, we’ll likely have to wait ’til late 2018 to hear it.

The Unassuming Metalhead – September 2015 (“Dad”)

the unassuming metalhead

Metal was always going to be a tough sell for my dad. The guy listens primarily to orchestral music, and has for as long as I’ve known him. To be fair, his occasional departures from that realm are pretty out of left field — you’ll also find Blondie, Eurythmics and Enya in his CD collection, for example — but not quite so far out as to constitute metal. Hell, this is a guy who got legitimately upset when I told him I listened to a pop-punk band called Diarrhea Planet; how d’you think names like Cattle Decapitation or Dying Fetus are going to go down?  Continue reading

Quickies: Slipknot gets MEH-gative, new Opeth track, and more

Quickies time, folks. I’m about to head out and catch Nine Inch Nails–which will almost certainly come up in next week’s podcast–so let’s not waste any time. Here’s what we missed in metal today:

Think this one’s gonna require a few more listens before I start forming a proper opinion, but hey…it’s still better than Heritage! Anyway, that’ll do it for now. Keep it heavy this weekend!

Quickies: June 9, 2014

Another Monday. Dan and I both had quite the weekends… which you will hear about later this week I’m sure. But one event neither of us witnessed was Rock Am Ring. A lot of the junk out there right now is footage from Rock said festival. I’ll do my best to not share all of them. No promises.

All of the awesome. All of it. One more thing to share and I don’t want to share it and I don’t want you to see it. But here’s what a Trash Talk fan did a recent show. Sorry, but I’m certain I gave you a fair warning. That’ll wrap up today. More tomorrow.
