CANTO: Necronomicon, Nightfall, Wo Fat, and More

I didn’t have to work today, but that doesn’t mean it felt like a holiday.

  • We’ll lead off with a tour. Necronomicon is covering North America with The Convalescence staring on April 29th, and running through June 4th. Tickets are available here. These shows are going to be gnarly. I might dabble.
  • Wo Fat, a band I remember covering as Horns Up back in the day, have announced a new album. The Singularity will be out on May 6th through Ripple Music. Check out the new single, “The Witching Chamber”, right here.
  • For the sake of pivoting to something fun, here’s the new video from Feuerschwanz for “Skaldenmet”. That track is taken from Memento Mori, which is out now through Napalm Records. Did I mention it’s fun? Because it is.
  • It’s time to get back to my day-long lack of production, so we’ll wrap this up with the new live clip from Nightfall for “Witches”. That footage is taken from a performance in Athens last November. And if you haven’t checked out At Night We Prey, get on that.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
