Good morning, it’s time to metal. It’s a quiet week here at Nine Circles, but is that the case around the metal world? WE SHALL SEE. Here’s some stuff you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, Revolver (I know, I know) has a new feature on Ministry during which Al Jourgensen describes how the band blew much of their $750,000 advance for the Psalm 69 record on drugs. Let’s go live to San Diego for a reaction!!!

“Why don’t you spend nowhere with me? Follow the river and the path of the ones. Write our names on the shore. Forever – I can’t find, struggling in a world undefined. Decide how you want it to be, I’m not eternity.”

Long day in Boston before a night out in Boston. Two things I don’t hate.

Canto: Updates from Lindemann, Lamb of God, Thy Art is Murder, and More!

Hello. It’s Friday. Let’s get weird.

  • Obviously, we’re all a little curious about Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann‘s new project, Lindemann. Some further details emerged today, as it turns out Carach Angren keyboardist Ardek will be contributing orchestral arrangements.
  • Well, we finally have some legitimate evidence that a new Lamb of God record is coming in the near future. And by “near future” I mean “probably 2016.” Better than nothing, I guess.
  • Here’s a new tour alert for your Friday: Veil of Maya, Revocation, Oceano and others will be hitting the road together in May and June. That could be fun…for people other than me.
  • Thy Art is Murder almost wanted to make noise with the cover of their upcoming album, Holy War. It looks innocent enough now…but it almost featured a suicide bomber. That probably wouldn’t have gone over well.
  • Finally, because it’s Friday, you’re getting a David Hasselhoff music video. Because it’s metal as all hell.

You must be entertained!
