I can tell the seasons are changing because I haven’t been able to breathe in about a week.
Omnium Gatherum have announced a 2022 North American tour with Allegaeon and Black Crown Initiate. They’ll be touring in support of Origin, which drops on November 5th through Century Media. Those dates are in February and March, and you can purchase your tickets here.
We’re closing today with Moon Tooth, because Moon Tooth happenings are always reasons to celebrate. Check out the video for “Nymphaeaceae” below, out through Pure Noise Records, a track that serves as an early preview of their follow up to 2019’s Crux.
Allegaeon has fast become a household name in the tech death metal arena, and for good reason. Their last album Apoptosis was a beacon in the tech-melodic-death-metal arena and placed the band on the same wavelength as the giants in this genre. And maybe even head and shoulders above their competition. Eye of the beholder sort of thing, obviously, but these dudes are the real deal. Period. With that said, head inside for an in depth discussion with Riley McShane via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.
I have officially stocked the fridge with more spring appropriate beers.
Let’s start with Emperor, who are marking their 30 years of existence with a livestream event titled “A Night of Emperial Wrath 2021”. The event is scheduled for May 23rd and will include guest appearances from Faust and Mortiis. Tickets are available here.
And we’ll close Tuesday with the new single and video from Desaster for “Learn to Love the Void”. That track comes with the announcement of a new album, Churches Without Saints, which will be out on June 4th through Metal Blade Records.
Welcome to another Saturday morning mixtape, perfect to get you up and awake if you find yourself in a post-Christmas hangover state. We jammed this one full of our favorite holiday themed tracks, plus a few choice secular jams to round things out. Grab your cup of cheer and listen down below.
Witherfall shared a lyric video today for the new track “Another Face”. That’s another one taken from their upcoming new album, Curse Of Autumn, which officially drops on Marth 5th through Century Media.
This likely won’t apply to me, or anyone else in North America, but Archspire have ambitions for a 2021 European tour. It’s actually a pretty stacked bill with Allegaeon, Black Crown Initiate, Rivers of Nihil, and To The Grave. The dates aren’t until November, so we’ll see!
Michigan metalcore group Of Virtue dropped a new video today. Check out the clip below for “Pictures Of You (Reimagine)”, taken from What Defines You, which is available through SharpTone Records.
