The mighty Devin Townsend joins for a special edition of The Nine Circles Podcast! Devin chatted with Dan about songwriting, guest collaborations, pet names and much more. A reissue of his 2014 album, Casualties of Cool, will be out January 15, with a bonus DVD performance at the Union Chapel in London, but for now, check out our interview and see what he had to say!
It’s the last Tuesday of 2014 and I…don’t have any new albums to share with you. I know, I know, “welcome to December,” right? By now, you’ll all be well aware that Corey and I spent the better part of this month recapping our favorite metal albums of 2014 in a long, incoherent manner. (Hence the graphic you see at the top of this post) That was fun. I’m not sure I’ve done so much writing since my journalism days in college, but…gotta get back into gear somehow, right?
Anyway, with all that said, I did occasionally find time to listen to new non-metal albums in 2014, though Horns Up duties did force me to be a bit picky on that front. The following list (and accompanying Spotify playlist) highlights some of my favorites, and will be just that—a list. (Because I’m busy at the day job and because of the aforementioned load of writing I’ve already done for #Bestof14 and because shut up.) This one’s mine and mine alone—Corey? Listen to non-metal? Fat chance—so let’s jump right into it:
What a week it’s been, folks! Corey’s out at Mastodon / Gojira / Kvelertak tonight, so you’ve got me on the Quickies for a change! Lots to cover in today’s edition, so let’s not waste any time–here’s what we missed today:
In an interview with Billboard, Tommy Lee discusses a Mötley Crüe farewell tour and the status of the long-in-the-works film adaptation of the band’s autobiography, The Dirt, and OH MY GOD WHAT HAPPENED TO MICK MARS’ FACE?
