CANTO: Blind Guardian, Sabaton, Tribulation, and More

Let’s kick things off with a couple leftover videos from last week.

  • We’ll start with Tribulation, who released a new video for “Hour Of The Wolf”. A reminder that the new album, Where the Gloom Becomes Sound, drops on January 29th through Metal Blade (in North America). Pre-orders are up here.
  • From there, what better way to get in the holiday spirit than with Blind Guardian? They released a special xmas greeting last Friday, and it legitimately might be the holiday holiday song I listen to this year because… reasons.
  • In case you need something a little more grim in your life, you should keep an eye out for the next release from Szary Wilk. The debut from the Polish project, titled Wrath, drops on February 19th through Putrid Cult. You can listen to a new track, “Mortuos Voco” right now.
  • Finally, we have the new animated music video from Sabaton for “No Bullets Fly” immediately below. That one is taken from Heroes, and was released as part of an advent calendar they are doing, and in celebration of hitting one million YouTube subscribers. Doin’ stuff!

CANTO: Soilwork, Tribulation, Allegaeon, and More

Saturday post because SO many things happened yesterday.

  • Allegaeon released a new digital single, Concerto in Dm, which features that title-track and B-side “In Flanders Fields”. Those tracks date back to the Apoptosis days, and you can check out a play-through and documentary here.
  • Trivium’s Matt Heafy has teamed up with social media person/human/whatever Jared Dines to create the Dines X Heafy EP. Watch the video for the single “Dear Anxiety” if you feel so inclined.
  • Tribulation opened my Friday with a pretty substantial lineup change. Jonathan Hultén has made the decision to pursue other paths, with Joseph Tholl taking his place. There appears to be no negative feelings in any direction… but this is still weird for me.
  • And finally, Soilwork released a new video for “A Whisp Of The Atlantic”, the title-track from their new EP which dropped Friday through Nuclear Blast.
