Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
- Leading off, Agoraphobic Nosebleed will be replacing Wormrot at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. As one of the maybe five jackasses to have missed them last time out, I’m quite pumped about this. Noothgrush have been tapped to replace English Dogs, who also had to pull out of their appearance.
- Per a Facebook post from the band themselves, Broken Hope have delivered their new album, Mutilated and Assimilated, to Century Media. Looks like it’ll be out this summer. Good news if you like Broken Hope, I guess? (I plead ignorance.)
- Paradise Lost have entered the studio to record the follow-up to 2015’s The Plague Within. We rather enjoyed that record here at Nine Circles, so this is terrific news to us. Plus, more opportunities for Gregor to fulfill his lifelong dream of playing parking lots in Baltimore!
- Show of hands….anyone still care about In Flames? Maybe one or two of you? Well, they’ve announced a short run of gigs with Kataklysm throughout May, to complement their existing festival commitments and dates with Alter Bridge (barf).
- Darkest Hour will be releasing a special, 7″ EP for Record Store Day, with all proceeds going to the National Immigration Law Center. I don’t know that I’ve ever listened to Darkest Hour, but good on ’em all the same.
- In a new interview, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine claimed that people might have liked the band’s oft-maligned 1999 album, Risk, a bit more if it had been a Mustaine solo record. He then tried to argue that feces wouldn’t be quite so gross if it was blue rather than brown.
- And finally, Power Trip have released a video for their song, “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe).” Check it out below:
That’ll do it for today — check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!
Keep it heavy,
