My favorite bar is open again and therefore everything is wonderful.

CANTO: Meshuggah, Pestilence, Ihsahn, and More

Now pouring: Stoneface Brewing’s Mozzacalypse DDH double IPA. Forgot how delicious this monster is.

  • A couple videos to share today, even though it isn’t Friday yet. We’ll start with Crown, because I’ve been listening to The End Of All Things a lot recently. This is the clip for “Violence”, featured over at PopMatters. A reminder that the new album drops on April 16th through Pelagic Records.
  • Updates from Meshuggah are always noteworthy. They shared today that they have entered Sweetspot Studios to begin recording their ninth album. They’ve also announced the return of Fredrik Thordendal on guitars, who Per Nilsson had be subbed in for previously.
  • Pestilence have unveiled details about their upcoming new album. Exitivm will be available through Agonia Records on June 25th. Looks like a totally new lineup for this effort, as well. Get all the relevant information, including pre-order details, right here.
  • Ihsahn announced a livestream event, and I can never get enough Ihsahn, so let’s talk about that. On April 4th, he will be performing Telemark and Pharos in their entirety, with a guest appearance from Einar Solberg. Get your tickets here. I think I’m actually going to make this one!
  • And lastly, that other video I wanted to share today, which comes from Witherfall. This is the clip for “The Unyielding Grip of Each Passing Day”, taken from Curse of Autumn, which is out now through Century Media Enjoy.

CANTO: Defiled, Witherfall, Pyrrhon, and More

And so another week begins!

  • As tours are being canceled left and right, with a few rescheduled dates only just beginning to surface, I saw this and thought it was cool. Full Body Autopsy are putting on a virtual tour where they will stream six different sets over six different nights in April and May. Honestly, I’m all over this idea.
  • Pyrrhon have announced a new album set for release on June 26th. It will be called Abscess Time and will be available through Willowtip Records. You can check out a new track called “Another Day in Paradise” over at Decibel.
  • Witherfall have decided to dabble in the alcohol industry for the creation of the Tempest Red Blend wine. They partnered with California winery, Charlie & Echo, to make this happen. Shipping begins on May 1st and is available to order here.
  • Finally, Defiled have released a live video for “Centuries”. That footage came from their performance in Tokyo back in January of 2019.
