playlist - mixtape

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.

CANTO: Soilwork, Amorphis, Baest, and More

Ok, fine. One more roundup for the week. Might as well make it a clean sweep.

CANTO: Alcest, GWAR, Enslaved, and More

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.
  • Speaking of Enslaved, they have their sights set on some tour plans in 2021. If all works out, they will be hitting a number of European cities with Intronaut, Obsidian Kingdom, and Crown. I adore this band, and they deserve to tour. So I hope all this happens.
  • And lastly, a new video from All Souls for “Winds”, a track taken from End of the World, which just dropped a couple weeks ago.

Squeezing one more in this week while I have a minute to breathe.

  • Something entertaining worth checking out this Friday afternoon: Alcest’s remixed version of “Sapphire”. It was remixed by Perturbator… aka James Kent. That’s probably all the information you need to be sufficiently enticed.
  • 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.
  • My Dying Bride have an awesome new album out today, titled The Ghost Of Orion. In light of that, listen to Aaron Stainthorpe and Andrew Craighan discuss “To Outlive The Gods” and the accompanying video.
  • 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.
