CANTO: The Halo Effect, Allegaeon, Immolation, and More

Drafting this early because I have shit to do later. Happy Friday, gang.

  • Like I said, it’s a Friday, so that obviously means we have a few videos to share. We’ll start with the new clip from Allegaeon for “Of Beasts and Worms.” I dig it. That’s taken from Damnum, which drops on February 25 through Metal Blade Records.
  • And then we’ll check in with Kreator, who unveiled a live video for “Violent Revolution.” That’s taken from the 20th anniversary edition of the album, which you can pick up through Nuclear Blast. That reissue is absolutely loaded with cool stuff, just a heads up.
  • Plague Years, the death thrash collective out of Detroit, are embarking on March tour with Somnuri. Alas, they won’t make it to my general area, but this should be a fun one for anybody that’s able to attend.
  • The third, and not at all final, video we’ll share today comes from Immolation. This one is for “The Age of No Light”. That’s taken from Acts Of God, their 11th album, which is set for a February 18th release through Nuclear Blast.
  • Let’s close with the second single from The Halo Effect, the project featuring current and former members of In Flames and Dark Tranquillity. You’re familiar with the names. This one is titled “Feel What I Believe.” You can purchase the single here if you want… while I wait for album news.

Go to a wedding, come back sick, get better, go to another wedding, come back sick, get better…

  • And then we’ll jump over to Pelagic Records, where Som has announced the upcoming release of The Shape Of Everything. That drops on January 21st, and is available for preorder here. Check out the first track, “Animals”, right now at the previous link.
  • Cynic shared a preview of an upcoming new track, titled “Diamond Light Body”, through Season of Mist. That one is taken from Ascension Codes, which is out on November 26th and can be purchased here.
  • This came through yesterday but whatever. Dark Tranquillity are making their return to North America early next year with Kataklysm and Nailed To Obscurity. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday. They’ll be supporting Moment, a very good album… in case you needed a reminder.
  • We’re closing with the first single from The Halo Effect, and it’s titled “Shadowminds”. And I’m not gonna lie, I am really, really happy about it. That project recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast, but album details haven’t quite emerged yet. We’ll keep you posted.
