CANTO: Der Weg einer Freiheit, Converge, Swallow the Sun, and More

Today has been a suboptimal day for my allergies.

  • If it wasn’t already obvious, I’m really excited about the new Der Weg einer Freiheit album. So we’ll start with this immersive VR video for “Monument”. Noktvrn is set for a November 19th release through Season of Mist.
  • And then we’ll hop over to Converge, who have announced a new collaborative album, Bloodmoon: 1. That project will feature the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, Ben Chisholm, and Stephen Brodsky, which is awesome. That’s also a November 19th release, through Epitaph Records. Check out the lead track, “Blood Moon”, right here.
  • Swallow the Sun have announced a U.S. tour scheduled for this coming November and December. Support will be in the form of Abigail Williams and Wilderun, but unfortunately there are no dates near me. That said, this is an awesome bill and you should all go.
  • Extinction A.D. have signed on with Unique Leader, and have announced a new EP titled Chaos, Collusion, Carnage & Propaganda. That will be out on November 5th, and you can stream “Chaos” immediately below.

CANTO: Killswitch Engage, Swallow The Sun, Imperial Triumphant, and More

And as our journey around the flat circle of time continues, we have reached another weekend.

  • As is the case with most Fridays, we have a couple videos to share. And the first one is pretty awesome, featuring a Killswitch Engage performance of “Us Against the World” from their streaming performance at the Worcester Palladium.
  • Fit For An Autopsy have announced a new album, Oh What The Future Holds, which will be out on January 14th through Nuclear Blast. Check out the NSFW video for the first single from that album, “Far From Heaven”, right here.
  • Here’s a cover of Iron Maiden’s “Wasted Years”, brought to you by Beyond the Black. I haven’t listened to it yet, so if you check it out, do share how it went. Please and thanks.
  • It’d be a mistake to leave out Imperial Triumphant news. They announced a new live album, An Evening with Imperial Triumphant, which will be out on November 26th through Century Media.
  • We’ll close out the week with the new video from Swallow The Sun for “Woven Into Sorrow”. Moonflowers is set for a November 19th release through Century Media, and pre-orders for the record officially went live today.

Alright, so today was slightly more normal? But only slightly. Very, very slightly.

CANTO: Meshuggah, Swallow The Sun, Armored Saint, and More

I have run out of beer. That is the biggest problem I face today.

  • Much like yesterday, we’ll start today with a new tour. Meshuggah have announced a 2022 tour with Converge and Torche. That is an absolutely massive bill. The dates are in February and March, with things kicking off in Silver Spring, Maryland. Tickets go on sale July 2nd and can be acquired here.
  • Finnish death doom masters Swallow The Sun have announced a new live album, 20 Years Of Gloom, Beauty and Despair – Live in Helsinki. The first live track and video, for “Don’t Fall Asleep (Horror, Pt. II) [Live in Helsinki]”, can be viewed here. That album drops on July 30th through Century Media.
  • Krossfyre have set the release date for their Hells Headbangers debut. Rites of Extermination will be out on July 23rd, on CD format, with a vinyl release planned for later this year. Pre-order that beast at this location.
  • We’ll wrap Tuesday up with the new video from Armored Saint for “Lone Wolf”. That track is taken from their latest release, Punching The Sky, which dropped last October through Metal Blade. Side note: they also dropped some slick new merch you can grab here. Enjoy that clip below.
