CANTO: Within Temptation, Thy Art Is Murder, Killswitch Engage, and More

WithinTemptation.3.3.19.126

I’m making a lot of cold brew. Weird, right?

  • Thy Art Is Murder announced a North American tour with Cannibal Corpse. They cover a lot of ground in October and mostly November, so check them out in a city near you.
  • Within Temptation canceled their set at a festival in Lebanon in response to another band, Mashrou’ Leila, being forced off the bill by Christian groups that apparently took issue with their openly gay singer and lyrical content, from what I read. I commend Within Temptation.
  • In case you wanted to see the cover artwork for Tool’s upcoming Fear Inoculum, here you go.
  • Check out this music video from Killswitch Engage for “I Am Broken Too”. It’s very Killswitch Engaging, and if you like clean vocal KSE, you’ll be all about this. Atonement drops on August 16th via Metal Blade.

It’s hawt out.

  • Hey look, we have the title of the next Tool album. It’s going be called Fear Inoculum. August 30th is the release date, and that graphic is super trippy. Moving on.
  • So for those unaware, the Knotfest Roadshow is officially underway. Slipknot always bring out the adrenaline in their audiences, and the show in San Bernardino last Saturday was no exception. In fact, Corey Taylor stopped midway through a song because the pits were getting particularly dangerous.
  • If you are in the UK, you might be interested the first wave of bands announced for the Chaos Theory Festival. The event takes place February 29th, 2020 and so far we know Vodun, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, and Gold will be there.
  • Would you like to djent away the rest of the day? If so, here’s a new video from Hyaena for a track called “Stolen Hero”. They have a new album called Poison Pen dropping later this fall.

CANTO: Spirit Adrift, Tool, Randy Blythe, and More

spiritadrift.8.3.18.3

Did ya miss me?

  • For those that missed it, the Westboro Baptist Church protested the election of Danica Roem to state legislature. No surprise there because, ya know, they’re the worst. The fun part? Randy Blythe countered their protest with… kazoos. And it went super well! He’s such a treasure.
  • Tool updates! No, not album news. But tour dates are kinda fun, right? Why do I feel like I was in this exact same position typing these exact same words last year?
  • How did Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody celebrate one year of sobriety? With a giant tattoo on his dome. Like… what now? Weird flex, but ok. Did I use that right? No? Oh well. I tried.
  • A new Spirit Adrift song dropped over the weekend… and it’s awesome! Check out “Hear Her” below. Their new album, Divided By Darkness, will be out May 10th through 20 Buck Spin.
