CANTO: The Ocean, Dragony, Bongzilla, and More

Today was a weird one, not gonna lie.

  • Urlo, most known for work through Ufommamut, has announced the second LP from solo project The Mon. Eye is out on May 26 through through Supernatural Cat. Give “Where” a watch and listen at this location.
  • How about some Austrian symphonic power metal? Dragony revealed a previously unreleased digital single through Napalm Records titled “The Dead Queen’s Race”, the lyric video of which can be seen here. That marks the farewell to 2021’s Viribus Unitis, so we’ll see what else 2023 brings.
  • Bongzilla are releasing their sixth studio full-length on June 2 through Heavy Psych Sounds, titled Dab City. Check out the first track, “Hippie Stick”, over at Decibel.
  • Ara Solis have set the release date for their debut. Ashvatta will be out on May 19 through Iron Bonehead Productions, and you can hear “Ara Solis” over at the label’s Soundcloud.
  • Since we’re continuing our march towards the release of Holocene, I’m happy to wrap up the day with the new video from The Ocean. Check out the clip for “Sea of Reeds” below, directed by Lo!’s Adrian Shapiro. That album is out May 19 through Pelagic Records. Obviously.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
