The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 201 (10.16.2021)

playlist - mixtape

We are fully across the 200 playlist threshold somehow, and a good chunk of the Nine Circles staff is nowhere near a computer at the time of this publishing… what a time to be alive! The Emma Ruth Rundle track kicking the playlist off is tremendous, and I’m (Corey… and probably also Vincent) are super pumped she was added to the Fire In The Mountains lineup. From there, it’s the typical clusterfuck of awesomeness you have come to expect, including the like of Kowloon Walled City, Thulandra, Aquilus, and oh so much more. Have at it! (Side note: I’m not sure I drafted this right).

CANTO: Anomalie, Whitechapel, Omnium Gatherum, and More

Squeezing one more in this week, just because I was cleaning out the inbox anyway.

  • We’ll start with Anomalie, one of my favorite discoveries of the last couple years. Their new album, Tranceformation, is out on November 5th through AOP Records, and today they shared a new track titled “Cerulean Sun”, which features Sakis Tolis of Rotting Christ. Awesome.
  • And then we have Whitechapel, who are following up on the news of their massive upcoming tour with Cannibal Corpse with a new track and video for “Orphan”. That’s another one taken from Kin, which is out on October 29th through Metal Blade Records.
  • Sticking with Metal Blade for another couple seconds, if you couldn’t wait to hear God Ends Here, the latest from Aeon, the full album is now available for streaming right here.
  • Wiegedood, which is kinda just fun to say (assuming I’m saying it right), dropped a new track today titled “Nuages”. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, There’s Always Blood At The End Of The Road, which will be available on January 14th through Century Media.
  • I guess we’re going to double up on Century Media today as well. Omnium Gatherum (also fun to say) released a video for the new track “Fortitude”. Origin is out on November 5th, and the aforementioned video is available below. Enjoy that while I finalize packing for L.A.

CANTO: Cannibal Corpse, Igorrr, Khemmis, and More

Cannibal Corpse

One more day…

  • Emma Ruth Rundle, who had just been announced as a performer at FITM 2022, dropped a new track titled “Blooms of Oblivion”. That’s another one taken from Engine of Hell, which is out on November 5th through Sargent House.
  • Khemmis have announced some West Coast dates next January, supporting Deceiver. Not a thing I can do unfortunately, but tickets go on sale Friday for those that can. As a reminder, that album is out on November 19th through Nuclear Blast.
  • The primary tour announcement of the day, however, came from Cannibal Corpse, who announced a run of shows in February and March with the likes of Whitechapel, Revocation, and Shadow Of Intent. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
  • American Teeth have announced that their debut album, We Should Be Having Fun, will be out on October 29th through Fearless Records, along with a new video for the track “Kickflip”. Give that a listen right here.
  • And we’ll wrap up the day with the new live video from Igorrr for “Camel Dancefloor”. That footage is from the Pol’And’Rock Festival from back in July. Give it a watch below.

Profile: Jordan Milner of The Breathing Process

The Breathing Process

The fact that The Breathing Process set a benchmark back in 2008 for infusing symphonic black metal into deathcore coupled with the fact that their just released fourth full length, Labyrinthian, is their best yet is nothing short of impressive. In fact, there’s very little ‘core’ left to their sound other than a brutalicious breakdown here and there. It’s an album that steps on the gas just before the green light and doesn’t let off until the last second of its nearly an hour runtime and EPIC is definitely a worthy descriptor, particularly when the symphonic aspect of their sound trickles in around the edges. We recently had the chance to pose our Profile questions to guitarist Jordan Milner to get some insights so read on to see how it went down and be sure to snag a copy from the links contained within.

CANTO: Gaerea, Equilibrium, Wayfarer, and More

How come everything explodes at work right at the end of the day?

  • Anyway, let’s talk about Gaerea, who are still riding the momentum following the very impressive Limbo, are already back in the studio recording a new album. We can expect that next year at some point, through Season of Mist.
  • Wayfarer have announced two exclusive performances next January. The first is scheduled for the 22nd at Saint Vitus, and the second for the 28th at The Bluebird Theater in Denver. That Vitus date is a performance with Falls of Rauros, and having seen that exact lineup in recent years, I can confirm that you absolutely cannot miss that show if you are in NYC.
  • Nightwish confirmed the North American dates of the “HVMAN. :||: NATURE.” world tour. They run from May 4th through the 22nd, and basically go coast to coast. Check out a trailer for the tour right here.
  • Closing with Equilibrium is always a good idea, so here’s the new clip for “Met (20 Years Later)”. There are a ton of guests in that reimagining of the first Equilibrium song ever, so definitely take a few minutes to check it out below.
