Good morning, it’s time to metal. Yes, this thing still exists. Here’s some metal stuff you might have missed from…recently:

    • As per usual, a whole bunch of bands dropped new music over the weekend, including SkyeaterHeresiarch and more. Check out Josh’s recap for the full list.
    • Behemoth drummer Inferno is going to be sitting out the band’s upcoming tour with Slayer to go do dad stuff. Understandable. Congrats to him. Filling in will be Jon Rice, formerly of Job for a Cowboy. I’m okay with this because of the formerly in that sentence.

Good morning. It’s been a minute. But now that school and final exams are done for the semester, it’s time, once again, to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off with something I know will make our Literati Overlord happy, Behemoth frontman Nergal revealed that the band has started writing the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist. Unfortunately, we’ll likely have to wait ’til late 2018 to hear it.

  • So that “Batushka dropping out of MDF” speculation we posted on Friday? Well, it’s pretty much confirmed; on Saturday, the festival organizers revealed that Uada had been tapped to fill the Poles’ slot at the Festival. Still a bummer, but they could have done far, far worse as replacements go.

Things I Don’t Want To Be Disappointed By In 2017 – Corey’s List

2016-04-24 21.32.52

Alright, so we spend a lot of time reviewing albums, right? And by ‘we’ I mean ‘the internet’, not just Nine Circles. But I’ve never expressed anticipation for certain albums before they drop. I mean, sure, between the podcast (R.I.P.) and the blog, we have at least kept you apprised on upcoming releases fairly consistently. However, as we kick off 2017, I want to focus a little more on the hype behind some of things soon to come our way. There are a number of albums slated to drop in the next year that I am unquestionably excited for. So why not introduce some of them? Below you will find five albums that I am highly anticipating in 2017. Better put, below you will find five albums or artists I really, really hope don’t blow it in 2017. I already spend way too much time in a state of disappointment. Continue reading
