CANTO: Between The Buried And Me, Boris, Carnifex, and More

I’m happy it’s Friday, and I’m happy about all the metal news that emerged today.

  • And we’ll start with Boris, who unveiled a new video for a live performance of “Loveless”. That track is the lead single from No, which will see a vinyl release through Third Man Records on August 27th.
  • From there, we’ll check in with MØL. The blackgazers are returning with their second studio album, Diorama, which will be out through Nuclear Blast. Additional details are still to come for that release, but check out the video for new single “Photophobic” right now.
  • I haven’t heard from Bullet For My Valentine in quite some time, so I suppose we can see what their up to. Looks like a new self-titled album is set for an October 22nd release through Spinefarm Records. And today we get a new track from that album, titled “Parasite”. Check it out.
  • We’ve also got a new track and album announcement from Carnifex to add to the pile. Graveside Confessions will be out on September 3rd through Nuclear Blast. A video for the title track from that album just dropped today, and you can check it out right here.
  • The obvious way to close out the week is with the latest from Between The Buried And Me. This is the new video for “Revolution In Limbo”, another one taken from Colors II. As a reminder, that album drops on August 20th through Sumerian Records.

CANTO: Amenra, Between The Buried And Me, Aborted, and More

Amenra

Happy Darkthrone Day! See also: Happy Amenra Day! See also: Happy Friday! (Thank Hell)

  • Speaking of Amenra, since today marked the official release of their debut with Relapse Records, De Doorn, we’ll kick things off with their new music video for “Ogentroost”. I guess that marks the first in a series of new visualizers for that album, with another one set for a week from now. That’s cool!
  • This has the potential to be massive. Between The Buried And Me have announced a new album, Colors II, which is set for an August 20th release through Sumerian Records. And if this is meant to be a sequel to Colors, something I will definitely assume right now, that is absolutely incredible. Check out a new track titled “Fix The Error” right now.
  • Fans of Matt Pike (see also: everyone) should be intrigued by his book announcement, Head On A Pike: The Illustrated Lyrics of Matt Pike. That is scheduled for a worldwide release on November 9th, with signed limited editions available at this location.
  • I guess we can toss a tour in the mix. Bewitcher and Enforced are joining Exhumed and Creeping Death on the “Worming Through America” fall tour. Those dates fall in October and November, and tickets are available now at this location.
  • We’ll close the week with Aborted, who released the first single and video from ManiaCult. That album drops on September 10th through Century Media, but you can check out the wild visualizer for “Impetus Odi” below. Viewer discretion is advised… apparently.

CANTO: If These Trees Could Talk, IIVII, Born of Osiris, and More

What is there to dig up today? Side note, I’m ready for a beer.

  • IIVII, the ambient drone project led by Josh Graham, is releasing the Obsidian EP on vinyl for the first time through Consouling Sounds for Record Store Day 2021 (June 12th). In conjunction, Consouling Sounds will also be hosting a free pre-recorded streaming event here.
  • If These Trees Could Talk, one of my favorites, re-issued Above the Earth, Below the Sky, Red Forest, and The Bones of a Dying World on vinyl through Metal Blade. They’ll be out officially on July 9th, but you can get your pre-order on at this location. Some fun variants in there… who knows what I’ll end up with.
  • Desaster are releasing Churches Without Saints on June 4th through Metal Blade Records, and premiered the new single and lyric video “Endless Awakening” today. Worth noting, I had absolutely no idea they’ve been doing their thing since 1989. That’s crazy.
  • Born of Osiris have announced a new album, Angel or Alien, which is set for a July 2nd release through Sumerian Records. Check out the new video for the title-track below, and pre-save/order/whatever the album here.

Fun fact: ciders aged in rye barrels are delicious.

I know this may come as a shock, but it’s their tenth full-length album. Check out the new single, “In Thrash We Trust”, right now.
  • Born of Osiris released a new single today, and that sounds like something good to close with. Check out the video for “White Nile”, available through Sumerian Records, immediately below.
