Good morning and welcome to another Nine Circles mixtape. This time around, we’ve got an excellent new collaboration between Converge and Chelsea Wolfe, Der Weg Einer Freiheit in 360 degrees, Capra live from Knotfest, and a killer audio/visual experience from Archspire. All that and more down below.
Deathcore has seemingly fallen into a rut. Gone are the days of bands like Ion Dissonance and The Acacia Strain dominating almost all discourse on popular metal blogs. The novelty of the genre has faded, and seminal bands have broken up and moved on. In their place, a glut of sub-par copycats have emerged to fill the void. However, amidst the sea of cookie-cutter bands still populating the genre, Black Tongue, a young band from Hull, England, have stood out, and managed to breathe some life back into deathcore.
