CANTO: Lamb of God, Imperial Triumphant, Abysmal Dawn, and More

LambofGod2020

“A legacy of collapse built on a painful truth.”

  • Lamb of God have released the fourth single, “Routes”, from their upcoming self-titled album, which drops on June 19th through Epic Records. That track features Testament’s Chuck Billy and it is an absolutely ripper.
  • Abysmal Dawn have announced a Gimme Radio special, scheduled for June 5th (next Friday) at 3:00 PM EST. They’ve curated a playlist for the occasion, and will be available for a live Q&A. I love these things.
  • Attila also dropped a new track today, called “Canceled”, if you’re into that kinda thing. I have nothing more to add here. At least I know what Attila sounds like now? Moving on.
  • Imperial Triumphant have released the first track and video from Alphaville. The album doesn’t drop until July 31st through Century Media, but we can check out “Rotted Futures” immediately below.

CANTO: Obscura, Katatonia, Barishi, and More

Katatonia

Earth Day… and I’ve been reluctant to go outside all day because work is murdering me. Go figure.

  • Obscura drama is coming right back around again. Steffen Kummerer is flying solo for the time being, as the other 75% of the band bailed to go in a different direction and form a new project called Obsidious. Fun times.
  • Katatonia dropped another track from their upcoming new album, City Burials, which is out on Friday. This one is called “The Winter of our Passing” and I assure you, it is a really good time.
  • Barishi have announced a Facebook Live listening party for their new albumOld Smoke, tomorrow at 5:00 PM EDT. The album itself officially drops on Friday through Season of Mist.
  • 3D music videos are always a good time, so here’s a new one from Abysmal Dawn for “Coerced Evolution”. That track is taken from the recently released Phylogenesis, available through Season of Mist as well.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 125 (4.18.2020)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another edition of our weekly mixtape.  On this mix, we’ve got a fair amount of variance coming at you, with tech-death from Ian, noise rock from Jon, all the new death metal picks from Josh, and screamo from…well, who else?  You’ll find something to your taste here, so why not check these, and more, out at the link below?  It’d kinda be rude not to at this point.

Week five of chaos and confusion: commence.

  • Some virtual happenings to share today! The first comes from Abysmal Dawn, who are hosting a virtual listening party for Phylogensis, their new album, tomorrow at 2:00 PM EST. The record officially drops on Friday through Season of Mist, so this a cool, interactive way to get an early listen.
  • The next stream comes from Saor. In celebration of Andy Marshall’s birthday, he will be performing a live acoustic set of Saor songs with Sophie Rogers. I am all about seeing acoustic versions of these songs.
  • Here’s a pretty cool project from Jeramie Kling (Venom Inc, Massacre, The Absence) and Taylor Nordberg (Massacre, The Absence). They are writing, recording, and releasing a new song from different genres each day. Stay caught up here.
  • Lord Mantis tends to be… jarring, so let’s wrap with a new video from them for “Santa Muerte”. Universal Death Church dropped last November through Profound Lore.
