Anyway, let’s start with Aeon, who announced their first new album in absolutely forever. God Ends Here will be out on October 15th through Metal Blade Records, and you can check out a lyric video for the first single, titled “Church of Horror”, right here. This kicks ass.
Anyway, I hinted at Lamb of God news, so let’s go there next. Today they released “The Making of Redneck Music Video” clip, which I needed so badly today. And truthfully I can’t believe that came out in 2006. A reminder that a digital reissue of Sacrament will be out this coming Friday.
The Lion’s Daughter have announced a concert stream that will be held via Knotfest’s Twitch channel. The event is scheduled for August 20th (Friday) at 8:00 EDT. They’ll be supporting the recently released new album, Skin Show, which is out through Season of Mist.
And we’ll close with a new video from Caustic Casanova, because a little stoner rock sounds like the right way to wrap up a Tuesday. Here’s the clip for “Memory King”. That track is taken from 2019’s God How I Envy The Deaf.
We’re coming at you a little later than usual today because I’m a goof, but better late than never, right? Welcome back to another edition of the Nine Circles weekly mixtape. Today, we’ve got an extremely full house with respect to staff picks, and quite a diverse set of tunes queued up. There’s a little something for every taste in there today, so without further ado, dive right in. And hey, happy Saturday.
Honestly, I’m still reeling over the 1-2 punch of Vitriol and Mizmor from last week. And probably will be for some time to come. But, there’s a whole load of killer releases this week so my, and your, listening habits will be crowded and our wallets will be empty. ‘What is this sorcery?’ you ask…well, keep reading dear readers.
When a doom leaning heavy metal band comes out with a debut so impressive it makes waves everywhere, it’s hard to assume their follow up will live up to that hype but Crypt Sermon‘s more than lives up, it surpasses and crushes. Nightfell perfectly capture the darkness and turmoil of current times on their wickedly bleak third album, yet another crusher. I’ve seen Haunter‘s new outing called ‘current day old Opeth’ and that’s a fair assessment but misses a ton of the whipping black metal and visionary songwriting so please go and assess for yourself. Last up top but certainly not least is new stuff from death metallers Baest and if you thought they might soften a bit – WRONG. There you have it, four you need and way more of that below so hop to it. Continue reading →
Everything is a madhouse right now. Which is maybe part of the reason I straight up forgot to write up this post last week. Thanks to Josh for covering me. But I’m back, and ready to share more of the good stuff we’ve been listening to on another glorious Saturday morning. We’ve got new tunes from Hope Drone, Coffins, White Ward, The Great Old Ones, Russian Circles, as well as a smattering of some of the best songs from other releases from this year and beyond. There’s even a few electro-pop songs thrown in there by a certain band that I personally feel got a raw treatment from the 2edgy4u hardcore crowd this week. Just my opinion though.
There’s plenty in here for every taste, so grab a seat and your headphones and let’s get down to business.
