Greetings, fellow travelers of the path, and welcome to another Nine Circles Saturday morning mixtape. This time around, we’ve got a slew of death metal tracks, BIG|BRAVE’s noisy, glorious sludge, a little Alcest, and some classic Tom Waits & newer Steve Von Till to round things out. Check it out below.
And lastly, the new music video for “Necro Sapiens”, the title-track from the upcoming new album from Baest. That album is set for a March 5th release through Century Media Records. As usual, I’m gonna give you the pre-order link, too.
If I listen to anything but The Ocean and Enslaved the rest of the year, it will be a freaking miracle.
In celebration of the album’s 10th anniversary, Alcest are reissuing Écailles De Lune on December 18th. You can pre-order it here, and I gotta say it looks absolutely stunning. Being my favorite Alcest album, I may need to jump on this.
And as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Scumdogs of the Universe, GWAR have announced a streaming event on October 30th. “Scumdogs XXX Live” should be quite the spectacle. Tickets can be acquired here.
Vader have unveiled the artwork for their upcoming new album, Solitude In Madness. That drops on May 1st through Nuclear Blast, and pre-orders are available at this location. They also have some European tour dates coming up.
Check out the new video from Heaven Shall Burn for the new single “Eradicate”. Of Truth And Sacrifice will be out March 20th through Century Media. These guys are fun, I’m going to continue to pay attention to their going-ons.
