CANTO: Corrosion Of Conformity, Ministry, Tool, and more

tool-band-photo-2017

It’s been awhile. And it will be awhile until we do this again. Enjoy it while you’ve got it.

  • Corrosion Of Conformity have been releasing a No Cross No Crown video series, and part four is now available. These guys will be on the road the next few months and the new album drops January 12th. So yeah, do that.
  • Ministry have announced a run of shows with Chelsea Wolfe next March and April. Their new album, AmeriKKKant, drops March 9th. Political metal! Hurray! There’s a new song called “Antifa” in there somewhere, too.
  • I can’t believe I’m still sharing these damn rumors. Danny Carey seems pretty confident that a new Tool album will come our way in 2018. You know who isn’t confident? Literally EVERYONE ELSE.
  •  Finally, here’s an impressive new track from Harakiri For The Sky called “You Are The Scars”. 10+ minutes of post-black metal awesomeness. Their new album, Arson, will be out February 16th.

Vortex of Uncertainty: Josh’s 2017 List (Revisited)

vortex-of-uncertainty

I’m revisiting my initial post for what I was looking forward to from 2017 to see if those picks stood the test of time and if they were all I had hoped for. I don’t plan on going into too much detail as some of these may or may not be included in the impending EOY festivities. This year was definitely not the year we figured it all out and in fact it created more questions than any year I can remember. I do think 2017 was at least as good as 2016 on the metal front and in some cases was better, everyone will feel differently here but that’s my two cents. Metal was indeed my safe place to get away from all the bad this year held and I ran to it often. Without further ado, let’s see how these fared… Continue reading

NINE-CIRCLES_LOGO-Light Background_SQUARE

Tryptophan got you moving slow this morning? Or maybe it’s just because we’ve had a long weekend and now that’s over? Yea, I know it sucks and honestly I, and we, could’ve easily stayed in bed for another solid few hours but we’ve got another week to get underway and before you know it the weekend will be here again. Rah rah right? Look, I’m trying to help so bear with me, or not. Anyway, we’ve got just the thing for those Monday blahs in the form of a playlist of goodies we spent some time with recently. Being that we’re on the 19th volume of this thing, you know the drill by now: subscribe to our YouTube channel here then head inside to see what we got cooking. Enjoy… Continue reading
