Corpsessed just released their fourth full length, Succumb To Rot, and it is an absolute beast of Finnish death metal that shines a light on where they’ve been but is a huge step forward in both the songwriting aspect and their heaviness factor as a whole. Buke sat down with guitarist and backing vocalist Matti Mäkelä to discuss the new album and how he feels it’s different from the past, Finnish death metal and the differences to its Swedish and American counterparts, all of his various side projects and some breaking news on an upcoming black metal album, beer and how backstage beers are always the worst, how he is very hard on hisself and has thrown away tons of completed songs for even the slightest of details being off, and so much more. We now bring you this conversation in its entirety so grab your beverage of choice, a seat, and enjoy.Continue reading
Busy week ‘round these parts last week. Hopefully we can keep that momentum, but if you missed anything do catch up. Moving on to the reason you’re here…new releases and we’ve got a ton for this week that kicks off with a trio of excellent death metal from Undeath, Sentient Horror, and Corpsessed, a wickedly good heavy metal outing from Skull Fist, and a long list of other releases that are equally worthy of your time. Feel free to let us know what we missed and if your band or label wants to be included here, get in touch via our info found on this site. We’d love to hear from you.Continue reading
Weird random though for the morning: although we’re often nostalgic for things from our youth, sometimes the things from our youth are not things from our youth, you catch me? I don’t know; I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately. Maybe it’s the music, so many new albums coming out that capture so succinctly the signatures of the sounds that came before it (*cough* Ghost) I’m caught in a revelry of the past. Don’t fear, though: I won’t let it influence the 222nd edition of the Nine Circles Playlist too much…
…but I will a little, kicking it off with a certain massive popular band who finally went all in on the hard rock/pomp of the 80s (*cough* Ghost). But man, if you haven’t also heard the latest from Drug Church get thee to a computer and rectify that post-haste. Hits the 90s indie hardcore rock so good, and they’re from my old stomping grounds of Albany, NY to boot. Elsewhere Anton brings up Siberia, Vital Spirit, and Autarkh III to get the nasty flowing. Vincent continues to champion site favorite Absent in Body and throws in some new music from Devil Master and Egregore as well as Bootblacks. Josh takes a break from his non-stop listening of Impera to get down with the OTHER site favorite Zeal & Ardor but also manages to make room for Corpsessed, King Dude, and a pair of outlaw country tunes, including the latest from Paul Cauthen. Buke can always be counted on with some choice classic cuts, and he does not fail this week, serving up some vintage KISS and Rainbow, but also hits with new cuts from Rammstein and Deathwhite (there’s some Anvil in there, too). And Angela comes in to remind that if the first quarter of 2022 was already stacked tooth gills with great music, we just got the new Messa, a new single from Conjurer, and the latest from Chelsea Wolfe.
Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.
A week removed from being back in town, back to reality and back to…freeze warnings. I got nothing good to add here. So, how about another blast of new metal? That’s what were here for so let’s get to it…
Spearhead breaks a seven year silence with their in-your-face militant death metal on Pacifism Is Cowardice, brutal death metal vets Corpsefucking Art are back with another entry in their 20 plus year catalog with Splatterphobia, progressive by way of black metal Norwegians In The Woods… return with Cease the Day and it’s just as good if not better then Pure, and Corpsessed keep their death metal dingy and dirty on Impetus of Death. As always, thats’s not all. We’re just getting started so head inside to see what else is upcoming. Oh, one other thing…
