Heavy is a state of mind and today’s Second Circle is a tale of heavy from two different ends of the spectrum. Spirit Adrift’s Enlightened In Eternity is a tale of modern day, straightforward heavy metal and Kneel’s Ailment is a tale of jagged heavy that comes out of society’s current level of pain and anguish. This piece aims to find the common ground between two albums and this common ground is the ‘heavy’ but these are vastly different albums from vastly different corners of the universe. So, without further ado, let’s discuss.
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting something to get excited about—let’s face the fact that there’s a critical shortage of that—it’s Spirit Adrift week, FINALLY. Their fourth full length is everything you love about them but better, bigger, and just a damn joy to listen to. Beyond that, we’ve got Wayfarer who finally clicked for me with album number four which sees the band really deliver a picture perfect vision of a dust laden, dark Wild West. Bringing forth a killer modern day version of Burnt By The Sun and Origo era Burst is Kneel with their second full length and holy crap I’m all here for it, and prog metallers Calyces offer up an intensely catchy debut. Stellar top four here but there’s much more to explore so head below and enjoy yet another wealth of treasures.
A couple videos to share this Friday, and the first comes from Spirit Adrift. This one is for “Screaming from Beyond”, taken from Enlightened In Eternity. A reminder, that album drops October 16th through 20 Buck Spin if you haven’t already pre-ordered it. Hint: you should.
