CANTO: Fallujah, Malevolence, Choke, and More


Yeah, I’m not gonna lie, the heat is approaching a suffocating level at this point.

  • We’ll lead off this Thursday with some Fallujah, specifically referring to the latest, and final, single from Empyrean. Check out “Soulbreaker” here, and get ready for the release of that album on September 9th through Nuclear Blast.
  • We’ll jump over to At The Gates next, who unveiled a music video for “Garden Of Cyrus”. That’s a track taken from The Nightmare of Being, which dropped last year through Century Media. Oh, and if you’re across the pond, they’re doing a killer run of shows with In Flames closer to the end of the year.
  • Want some death grind in your Thursday playlist? Check out the latest from Choke. They have a new EP dropping through Translation Loss titled Desiphon, and a video for “Lust For Death” is streaming over at Metal Injection if you want to give them a click.
  • And we’ll jump back to Nuclear Blast to close things out. Below is the new video from Malevolence for “Higher Place”. Malicious Intent is out now, and can be purchased here. They also have a ton of tour dates coming up, but you’ll have to seek those details out on your own.

CANTO: Tombs, Amon Amarth, Xenoglyph, and More


The work week before vacation always sucks, but what are ya gonna do?

  • The most obvious thing to open up with is the massive tour announcement featuring the likes of Amon Amarth, with Carcass, Obituary, and Cattle Decapitation. Those dates are in November and December, and tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
  • If you like trippy, psychedelic black metal, check out the latest from Xenoglyph. They’re streaming Spiritfraud in full over at Decibel (accompanied by an interview). That one is officially out Friday through Translation Loss.
  • Oceans Of Slumber covered “House Of The Rising Sun”, which is pretty dope. That track is featured on Starlight And Ash, which drops on July 22nd through Century Media. Check out that visualizer right here.
  • Withered added some dates over the next few months around their festival appearances. Get the full schedule here, and be sure to drop in on one of these shows if your calendar allows for it.
  • Tombs gave us new stuff today, and I really like Tombs, so that’s the note we’re going to end on. Check out “Murder Legendre” below, the final single from the Ex Oblivion EP. All those tracks will be available on your favorite streaming platform soon enough.

CANTO: Revocation, Immortal Bird, Labyrinth Of Stars, and More

Weird, annoying times my friends. That said, the clock keeps ticking closer to Wyoming…

  • Let’s open things up with a fresh tour announcement. Immortal Bird are hitting the road in September with Malevich, with dates mostly in places I can’t get to. Sad. But it sounds like they’ll focus on finishing their next album in the near future as well. Not sad!
  • Labyrinth Of Stars, a new project featuring some of the minds behind Lantlos and Valborg, have announced details surrounding their debut. Spectrum Xenomorph will drop on September 30th through Translation Loss Records, and you can check out “Star Pervertor” over at Decibel right now.
  • Funeral Chic unveiled more material from Roman Candle, so we’ll jump there next. Check out Last Line Blues over at Revolver. As a reminder, that album is set for a July 29th release through Prosthetic Records.
  • I feel like rounding out the day with Revocation is the right call. The video below is for “Diabolical Majesty”, the first single taken from Netherheaven. Their new album is set for a September 9th release through Metal Blade. Be sure to catch them on tour with Krisiun, Alluvial, and Inoculation later this year as well.

CANTO: Northless, KEN mode, Lamb of God, and More

Alright, so, I’m drafting this post super early in the morning because I need to be on the road soon. Needless to say, this will include some old stuff from yesterday, and I’ll miss plenty of news that emerged today. Deal with it.

CANTO: Northless, Inexorum, Horizon Ignited, and More

Decent chance this is my last post this week, thanks to some wedding travel. The good news is that there are plenty of notable updates today.

  • To start, the progressive sludge crew known as Northless have signed on with Translation Loss Records, and have announced their new album. A Path Beyond Grief will be released on July 22nd, and you can check out the title track over at Brooklyn Vegan now.
  • From there, we’ll jump over to Season of Mist to check out the new track from Stoned Jesus. This one is titled “Porcelain”, the title track from the sludge rock trio’s new album, with a release date still pending.
  • And then over at Prosthetic, Yatra shared a new single and visualizer for “Reign of Terror”. Check it out over at Distorted Sound. That’s the third single taken from Born into Chaos, which is set for a June 10th release.
  • Collectively, we think pretty highly of Inexorum, so we should probably include that as well. “Memoriae Sacrum” can be streamed over at Metal Injection. As a reminder, Equinox Vigil is out on June 17th through Gilead Media.
  • Finally, we’ll close with Horizon Ignited. Below is the new video for “Beyond Your Reach”, the latest single taken from Towards The Dying Lands. That album drops on July 1st through Nuclear Blast.
