CANTO: Act of Denial, Cradle of Filth, Dreamshade, and More

Anybody else just… not feeling it today? God damn.

  • Cradle of Filth have postponed their live stream event to May 12th. To be honest, I don’t even remember what date it was originally scheduled for, but it sounds like the postponement was due to new album business. Get your tickets here, and keep an eye out for Existence Is Futile later this year.
  • Act of Denial released a new single today, titled “Slave”, which features ex-Soilwork guitarist Pete Wichers. The supergroup’s debut album, Negative, is set for a release sometime later this year through Crusader Records.
  • Vincent Crowley released the first song and lyric video, “La Muerte”, from his upcoming Odium Records release. Beyond Acheron is set for a June release, so we’re still a few months out from that one.
  • I’m not entirely sure what a Dreamshade is, but that sounds like a good video to close with. Check out the clip for “Safe Harbour” immediately below, and be sure to scoop up A Pale Blue Dot, which is out now.

However, the timing of my posts should not be construed as a lack of enthusiasm for this year’s fest. In fact, I’ve been quite jazzed about my experience in the time since it all wrapped up. But more on that later; for now, let’s jump into the final recap and see how Sunday closed things out… Continue reading
