CANTO: Wolves in the Throne Room, Year Of No Light, Down, and More

Work is dumb. I leave for California in three days? Weird times.

  • Let’s start with Wolves in the Throne Room, who released another new track from Primordial Arcana. Here’s a visualizer for “Spirit of Lightning”, which a whole new level of epic from Wolves. A reminder that their debut with Relapse Records is set for an August 20th release. Pre-order it here.
  • Capra have announced a North American headlining tour, set to begin on October 4th. Support will be local for each of the 18 dates. Looks like more dates are going to be announced as well, which is cool. I expect to have a pretty full concert calendar this fall, and I’m not complaining.
  • Down have announced the NOLA Town Throwdown, which will take place at the Fillmore in New Orleans on August 13th. In-person and virtual tickets are available as well. It’s nice of them to make this event accessible to those outside of NOLA, even though I would argue this is probably only worth attending in-person. Shrug emoji.
  • Let’s wrap up with the new video from Year Of No Light for “Objurgation”. That track is, of course, taken from Consolamentum, which dropped on July 2nd through Pelagic Records.

Initial Descent: June 27 – July 3, 2021

Diabolizer

Much like past new release lists of late, this is another one as packed as I am when readying bourbon for a vacation…or just a weekend away…or, you get the idea. Anyway, Diabolizer kick things off with one of the best examples of ass kickin’, speed demon death metal that I’ve heard all year. ALL. YEAR. Next up, Sewer Fiend get nasty on their all too quick death metal EP that I wish had at least 30 more minutes of runtime, Year of No Light continue to expand post-metal’s limits, and brutal death metallers Anthropophagus Depravity (say that 10 times fast) snap necks and cash checks. I DON’T KNOW, it just came out of my head, sounded good, and here we are. Moving on, the comment section is open so you can flood us with all the shit we missed or need to hear. After all, we’re one site and can’t know or hear them all despite what anyone else tells you. Pop a top, folks.

Cannibal Corpse

I don’t know about anyone else, but Roadburn Redux delivered some seriously memorable sets this past weekend.
