Another week down and another ahead of us. One foot in front of the other sort of thing. Walk of life. Whatever. The time changed, finally, and I’m stoked to get my days back. And, of course, I’m constantly daydreaming about sand and salt that will be in my future. Moving on, new metal time so let’s do it; we’ve got some serious atmospheric black metal from Perennial Isolation that sounds exactly as cold as its album cover (this is a very good thing), a slab of old school death metal from Celestial Sanctuary, some post-black metal with a message from Decline of The I, and an album I genre termed as ‘raucous’ from ’68 because it’s rock, metal, bluesy, but most of all it’s a DAMN GOOD TIME. And right now, we all need a damn good time. Right? Right! All that and much more awaits in the lengthy list below so hop to it and load up.Continue reading
Welcome to another Saturday morning mixtape playlist from your friends at Nine Circles. This week, we’ve got new videos from Svalbard, Wristmeetrazor, The Lion’s Daughter, and a whole lot more. Plus, we have a smattering of St. Patrick’s Day appropriate content for you. Take a listen down below.
Confirmed that it is going to be a very long week indeed.
- Genghis Tron have announced their first full-length album in 13 years, which is a huge deal to our Nine Circles… circle. Dream Weapon will be out on March 26th through Relapse Records. Check out the video for the title track right now.
- Mono are releasing a live album, titled Beyond the Past • Live in London with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra, that will be out on March 21st. It features footage from a performance back on December 14, 2019, in front of a sold out audience.
- The noise crew out of Atlanta known as ’68 are dropping a new album on March 16th through Cooking Vinyl. It’ll be titled Give One Take One, and it’s available for pre-order here. Check out the video for “The Knife, The Knife, The Knife” while you’re at it.
- Another Nine Circles favorite, -(16)-, dropped a new song and video today, so we obviously need to share that beast. This is “Tear It Down”, taken from the split with Grime, Doom Sessions Vol. 3.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
I miss the woods.
- Faith No More and Korn have announced a co-headlining North American tour this summer. Support will be in the form of Scars on Broadway, Spotlights, Helmet, and ’68 on select dates. That tour runs through August and September, basically.
- Movements have also announced a 2020 tour. Those are U.S. dates in April and May with support from Teenage Wrist and Queen of Jeans. That tour includes a stop at Swanfest, which is something I didn’t know existed by am intrigued by in name alone. SO MANY SWANS (I hope).
- Fu Manchu are celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2020 with, you guessed it, a tour. This is a massive, global, run of shows that begins in late April and continues through the middle of December. Tickets go on sale Friday.
- A new music video from Vane for a song called “The Cannibal”? Don’t mind it I do. That’s the third single taken from their debut album, Black Vengeance, which dropped back in 2018.
