CANTO: Osi and the Jupiter, Dawn Of Solace, Body Count, and More

Third consecutive days in the 90s, and I didn’t skip a single run. Dumb!

  • Osi and the Jupiter, one of my favorite discoveries in the last couple of years, have set the release date for their fourth album, Stave. That will be out on August 27th through Eisenwald on CD, vinyl, and cassette formats. Check out the new track and video, “Folk of the Woods”, right now. Now where is my pre-order link???
  • Voyager have announced a new special virtual show which they’ve titled “A Voyage Through Time”. The show will air on Sunday, September 5th, a date that also celebrates the launch of Voyager 1. Tickets can be acquired here, and more details are to follow soon (I hope).
  • Dawn Of Solace, the solo project of gothic death/doom icon Tuomas Saukkonen, has set November 12th as the release date for Flames of Perdition. The third album under that project will be out through Noble Demon, and can be pre-saved/ordered here.
  • Iron Maiden covers are entertaining, so I’ll link in this version of “Flight of Icarus” from White Wizzard. The track features regular touring vocalist Mikey Dean Gremio (ex-Cellador), which is a fun fact of sorts.
  • And we’ll wrap up with the latest fan-created Body Count video for “The Hate Is Real”. That’s the second such version for that track, which is taken from Carnivore (Century Media). Give it a watch below.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
