We’ve only just transitioned into the new year, and we’re already mixing things up here at Nine Circles. On March 24th, neoclassical veterans Autumn Tears are releasing Guardian of the Pale, their ninth studio album, through The Circle Music. And today we’re excited to bring you the music video for the third single from that album, “Of Wind, Water and Sand.“ Give it a watch and listen immediately below, and you’ll quickly discover how easy it is to get lost in the soundscapes Autumn Tears are bringing forward on this album.
On September 9, Gridfailure & Megalophobe will be releasing their third collaborative album titled Harbinger Winds, but today we’re excited to bring you their third single and video from that release, “Alterations Of Symbiosis.” As their previous collaborations have been extraordinarily avantgarde in nature, this one ups the ante in every possible way. Nine Circles is proud to unveil this video premiere immediately below.
On August 26, German based MIGHT will be releasing their second album titled Abyss, but today we’re excited to bring you their second video from that release, “Shrine.” As their previous release showed this band to be incredibly explosive, this track substantially builds on that. Nine Circles is proud to unveil this video premiere immediately below.
On July 15, Houston, TX based Anova Skyway will be releasing an EP titled Reset, but today we’re excited to bring you their second single, “Translucent,” in video format. As with their previous releases, this is emotive and explosive progressive metal that is not only engrossing but incredibly memorable. Nine Circles is proud to unveil this video premiere immediately below.
Greetings, everyone! Corey coming at you with our weekly playlist this time, as Chris is off doing way more fun things than this. Meanwhile, I’m on Cape Cod for a wedding this weekend. A cold… rainy… bleak Cape Cod on Memorial Day weekend. Is that also more fun than this? Maybe. And just to pout a little bit, seeing all my friends MDFing this weekend has also brought some nostalgia feels. Oh well. At least I have a fridge full of Tree House to entertain myself with up to and (if I pace myself) through the Champions League Final. Now that’s a tradition on this holiday weekend that I do still very much enjoy and practice. ANYWAY.
Fortunately, even on these dreariest of Saturdays, we have these handful of songs to entertain ourselves with for a spell. This time around, part of the playlist is directly inspired by a very important album announcement from Blind Guardian, something we should all be celebrating. Beyond that, we covered quite the range this week. On the more gothic side of things we have some stuff from The Sisters of Mercy and Chelsea Wolfe, new material from Cavernlight and Behold! The Monolith to pummel you into the ground, and then a few classics from the likes of Entrails and Nasum, and, of course, so so much more. You know what to do. Hit that Play button below, and sit back and enjoy the grey.
