CANTO: Wolves in the Throne Room, Obscura, Omnium Gatherum, and More

Wolves In the Throne Room

Apparently there’s a lot going on today?

  • So let’s start with Wolves in the Throne Room, who have announced an early 2022 North American tour with Uada and Full of Hell. Those dates run in January and February, starting and ending in the Pacific Northwest. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday.
  • And then we have a few new tracks and/or videos to share. The first of which comes from Obscura. This is the third single taken from A Valediction, titled “Devoured Usurper”. As a reminder, that album drops on November 19th through Nuclear Blast.
  • Extreme metal collective Apes have signed on Translation Loss Records, and have announced a new EP titled Lullabies For Eternal Sleep. In conjunction, they also gave us this vicious new music video for “Cornwall”, the opening track from said EP.
  • And then we have another one from Season of Mist Underground Activists. Necrofier dropped a new video for “Betrayal of the Queen”, which is taken from their debut full-album, titled Prophecies of Eternal Darkness. That drops on October 22nd.
  • And last but certainly not least, we’ll wrap up with Omnium Gatherum, one of our longtime favorites. The video for “Reckoning” can be found below. That’s another new one off of Origin, which is out on November 5th through Century Media.

CANTO: Mutoid Man, Churchburn, Kowloon Walled City, and More

In terms of hours, I’ve already worked well over a full week. Who says 4 day/40 hour work weeks can’t be a thing?

  • Let’s start with Mutoid Man, who have announced a new bassist, as well as a performance at Psycho Las Vegas. The power trio will be rounded out by Jeff Matz (High On Fire), which is awesome. That Psycho Las Vegas set, by the way, takes place this coming Friday on the main stage.
  • I’m not sure if anyone has familiarized themselves with AEW’s Malakai Black, but you should. The artist formerly known as Aleister Black (with WWE) not only uses Amenra as his introductory song, but has now also teamed up with Carnifex for a merch collaboration. Check it out.
  • This dropped yesterday, but I only got around to it today. So… deal with it. Kowloon Walled City released a new track, “Oxygen Tent”, and it’s predictably awesome. I really, really hope there is more new material on the horizon as well. We shall see.
  • And we’re going to close with one of my personal favorites, Churchburn. Their new album, Genocidal Rite, drops on November 5th through Translation Loss Records, and today they released a new track and music video. Check out the clip for “Swallowed By Dust” below.

CANTO: Lorna Shore, Teeth, Hexen, and More

Dang, whole lotta stuff to go through in the inbox this evening. Weird.

  • We’ll lead off with a tour (maybe two), because monitoring those will be interesting for the next several months I think. Lorna Shore have a number of U.S. dates lined up in September and October, with support from Enterprise EarthSentinels and Crown Magnitar. Tickets can be purchased here.
  • Los Angeles extreme metal crew Teeth unveiled a nasty new single today. “Dreamless Hieroglyphs” is streaming over at Invisible Oranges, a track taken from Finite. That new album is set for a November 26th release through Translation Loss Records, in case you needed a reminder.
  • For the thrash fans out there, you might be intrigued to know that Hexen is reissuing their 2008 debut, State of Insurgency. The first vinyl and cassette runs (CDs will be available as well) of that album will be available on September 17th through M-Theory Audio.
  • Progressive stoner rock band Ealdor Bealu have signed on with Metal Assault Records, and are planning a new album release in early 2022. Better yet, they’ve also announced a new run of shows, scheduled from September 30th through October 9th. All on that other coast, unfortunately for me.
  • I’ve been listening to a lot of Rammstein lately (see also: always), so here’s a cover of “Sonne” as presented by Black Satellite. Check it out below. Seriously though… I’m curious what people think of it.

CANTO: Shadows Fall, Teeth, Abstracted, and More

It’s been raining the last couple of days, and I definitely don’t hate it.

  • Shadows Fall have announced their return to the stage. On December 18th they’ll be taking the Palladium stage in Worcester, MA with the likes of Unearth, Darkest Hour, Within The Ruins, Sworn Enemy, and Carnivora. A trailer for the event can be seen here, and tickets go on sale later this week. Those can be found at this location.
  • Los Angeles extreme metal collective Teeth have announced a new full-length effort. Finite is set for a November 26th release through Translation Loss Records, and pre-order/pre-save options are available here. Better yet, a new track titled “Concubine” is available for your streaming pleasure right now.
  • Unreqvited have unveiled the second single from Beautiful Ghosts. This one is titled “Funeral Pyre”, and is available here. A quick reminder that Beautiful Ghosts drops on August 13th through Prophecy Productions, and you can pick that up right here.
  • And we’ll close with some progressive death metal out of Brazil. This is the new music video from Abstracted for “Wither To Dust”. That one is taken from their debut full-length, Atma Conflux, which drops sometime later this year through M-Theory Audio. More details coming soon.

CANTO: Our Place of Worship is Silence, Mastodon, Erdve, and More

Alright, so there were a few more things going on today.

  • Mastodon greeted us with a new track this morning, and it (unsurprisingly) kicks ass. It’s titled “Forged by Neron”, and is featured on the DC Comics Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack. Give it a listen here, and feel free to pre-order the collection as well.
  • Blackened death duo Our Place of Worship is Silence is releasing a new full-length on August 27 through Translation Loss Records, titled Disavowed, and Left Hopeless. The title-track was also revealed today over at Decibel, and it is absolutely relentless. I’m looking forward to this one.
  • Old school death metallers Hexorcist have set July 26th as the release date for Evil Reaping Death. They’re partnering with Memento Mori for the CD release, Unholy Prophecies for the vinyl, and Goz of War for the cassette. Simply put, whatever your preferred media form is, they’ve got you covered. Check out “Exulting the Adversary”, the first new track, here.
  • Lithuanian experimental sludge collective Erdve have also announced a new album, Savigaila, set for a July 23rd release through Season of Mist. Pre-orders are up here, and check out the video for the new single “Lavondėmės” immediately below.
