CANTO: Einherjer, Deadguy, Creeping Death, and More

Creeping Death

Well today sure was weird, but at least I’m caught up on writing?

  • Einherjer, a name I haven’t seen in quite some time, have announced details surrounding their first live album. Norse And Dangerous (Live… From The Land Of Legends) is set for an August 5th release through Napalm Records, and a clip for “West Coast Groove” is available now.
  • Creeping Death have announced a North American headlining tour with 200 Stab Wounds, Tribal Gaze, and more. Those dates cover August 16th through September 18th, and you can find ticket information here.
  • Parkway Drive has marked a bit of a return with the new video for a track titled “Glitch”. It’s their first new material since 2018’s Reverence, so we’ll see where they take things from here.
  • We’ll close out with some new footage from Deadguy. Below is the clip for “Makeshift Atomsmasher”, taken from Buyer’s Remorse: Live From the Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest. That’s available exclusively through, well, Decibel Records. Alright, I gotta run!

CANTO: Carcass, Abbath, Druids, and More

Busy times at 9C these days… can’t hate it!

  • So this latest Carcass tour is enticing. With support from Immolation and Creeping Death, they’ll be hitting the road through most of the month of May, starting on the 12th in Austin. Tickets can be scooped up this coming Friday.
  • Can’t wait until Friday to hear Dread Reaver in full? Well, I have good news for you. Abbath is streaming his latest album in full a few days ahead of the release date. Give it a listen here. Spoiler alert: it’s quite good. That one is out through Season of Mist.
  • RippleFest Texas revealed their full 2022 lineup, and it’s a good one. The Sword, Crowbar, Spirit Adrift, and The Obsessed, to name a few, are all coming together for what should be an awesome weekend. The festival is set for July 21st through 24th, and tickets can be acquired here.
  • Out of Pelagic Records, we have a new album coming from psychedelic metal collective Druids. Shadow Work is set for a June 3rd release, and you can stream the first track from that album, “Ide’s Koan”, immediately below.

CANTO: Cattle Decapitation, Dark Tranquillity, The Halo Effect, and More

Go to a wedding, come back sick, get better, go to another wedding, come back sick, get better…

  • Cattle Decapitation have announced the “Death… At Last” tour with The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Extinction A.D., and Creeping Death. Those are U.S. dates beginning January 18th and running through February 20th. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday at this location.
  • And then we’ll jump over to Pelagic Records, where Som has announced the upcoming release of The Shape Of Everything. That drops on January 21st, and is available for preorder here. Check out the first track, “Animals”, right now at the previous link.
  • Cynic shared a preview of an upcoming new track, titled “Diamond Light Body”, through Season of Mist. That one is taken from Ascension Codes, which is out on November 26th and can be purchased here.
  • This came through yesterday but whatever. Dark Tranquillity are making their return to North America early next year with Kataklysm and Nailed To Obscurity. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday. They’ll be supporting Moment, a very good album… in case you needed a reminder.
  • We’re closing with the first single from The Halo Effect, and it’s titled “Shadowminds”. And I’m not gonna lie, I am really, really happy about it. That project recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast, but album details haven’t quite emerged yet. We’ll keep you posted.

Creeping Death’s Trey Pemberton on EP “The Edge of Existence,” Ohio State football, readying for an upcoming tour, MMA training, Riley Gale, and much more!

Creeping Death

The Edge of Existence is Texas based Creeping Death‘s third EP, but follows from their bludgeoning 2019 full length Wretched illusions. Death metal had no idea what it was in for when this band formed and called it its own. Their sound is immediately violent yet has a groovy, melodic edge to it that makes for fast kinship amongst fans of metal far beyond just death metal. Reviews came fast and furious for the full length and it seemed the band was an overnight success, rightfully so since said full length was such a hammer to the face of death metal that so many just couldn’t get enough of, and us included. With that said, head inside for an in depth discussion with guitarist Trey Pemberton via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.

Initial Descent: October 3 – 9, 2021

Kowloon-Walled-City
Kowloon Walled City

Alrighty then…it’s spooky month, finally, and I’m happy about that. Time to stock up on all the horror you can feast on. That is unless, like me and co-conspirator Chris, you do that all year, in which case you already win and this will just give you an excuse to gorge. And, do remember all the nasty metal that goes so well with this season, soak it all up folks. Speaking of metal, it’s a new week which means we’ve got a fresh batch of new releases to kick the month off right. First up is an album we’ve all been waiting on for faaar toooo long from Kowloon Walled City (FINALLY!), next up is a stunning technical death entry from Atræ Bilis, then a quick chapter of brutish death metal from Creeping Death that you’ll hear more about later in the week, an epic dash of symphonic deathcore from The Breathing Process, and several more that follows in the list below. Dive headfirst into the coffin and find yourself something devilish to kick the month off with.
