CANTO: Portrait, Spirit Adrift, Fire In The Mountains, and More

Well, I head out to California tomorrow and that’s a crazy concept to me.

  • Portrait have unveiled details surrounding a new album, titled At One with None. That will be out on September 3rd through Metal Blade Records, and you can check out the new single, “Phantom Fathomer”, right here.
  • Weedeater have announced the second leg of their 2021 U.S. tour. Those dates run from September 3rd through the 18th, and support will be in the form of The Atomic Bitchwax, Joe Buck Yourself, and Rebelmatic. Tickets can be acquired at this location.
  • Fire In The Mountains rolled out the first round of bands for the 2022 festival, which includes the likes of Eternal Champion, Obsequiae, Dreadnought, Haunter, Dbuk, and Ghosts of Glaciers. This is gonna be good. And I already have a ticket!
  • Spirit Adrift are releasing a new 3-song EP titled Forge Your Future on August 27th through Century Media. Pre-orders for that are available here, and you can check out the lyric video for the title track immediately below. What a great way to close a work week.

CANTO: Pain, Enslaved, Weedeater, and More

Scrambling to get this done because why the hell not?

  • So everyone needs to spend a lot of money on Bandcamp next week. There’s a Juneteenth fundraiser next Friday, the 18th, where 100% of Bandcamp shares are going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Do it. Do it. Do it. I already have plenty lined up… obviously.
  • Weedeater have announced a U.S. tour this coming August. Support will be in the form of Joe Buck Yourself and Adam Faucett, and the party starts August 20th in Ashville. Tickets can be accessed at this link.
  • There’s no such thing as too much Enslaved, so here’s a new live video for “Sacred Horse”. That footage is taken from the recent cinematic tour, and you can pre-order that bundle if you haven’t already, out through Nuclear Blast. I forgot the exact date.
  • Machine Head greeted us with a new 3-track digital single today, Arrows In Words From The Sky, and you stream some of that here. That is also brought to us by Nuclear Blast.
  • And we should certainly wrap things up with the new Pain music video for “Party In My Head”, which is a vibe I can 100% fuck with. No word on new Hypocrisy things, but I do like me some Peter Tägtgren activity all the same. That’s also on the various streaming platforms.

Visions ov Hell: Quarantined With Nine Circles, Part 2

Coronavirus bah

Two weeks removed from Part 1 and we’re not out of the woods. And, quite to the contrary, we’re in the thick of it. Threat level 100….I guess. So much uncertainty, so much unknowing, so much virus, so much panic, so much hoarding, so much of all the bad stuff. We’re all tired of the ‘so much’ and it seems this thing is just getting a head of steam. Anyway, we’ve got a nice set of tunes to help push back the virus scares and bring forth the headbang; we’ve got Death, Obituary, Eyehategod, WASP, Katatonia, KISS, Mortician, and so much more. Indeed, all the bands you’d hold dear when trying to exorcize some demons and/or some asshole virus. So, jump inside that play button immediately below and try to forget, for just a second, what’s happening outside our windows. Maybe, just maybe, you find some sort of normalcy for a fleeting moment.

Quick Canto before I have to leave for the weekend. I miss mountains.
