Initial Descent: January 26 – February 1, 2020

Bütcher

The recent turn of events for the incredible Tanagra is unfortunate at best and absolute bullshit in its entirety. At its core, it shows a company – that no one’s ever heard of – that will stop at nothing to cripple a band that has nothing to do with said company nor had any intentions of crossing paths in any way. If you do nothing else today, go here and buy all you can to show the band support and hopefully give them a fighting chance to rebuild or whatever their next step will be. In other news, we’ve got tons of new metals this week beginning with the old school blackened speedsters Bütcher, an industrialized and cinematic take on The Seventh Seal from Brooklyn’s Fliege, soul touching darkness from Deathwhite, and vermin infested death from Proscrito. Beyond that, tons more entries await. Do it. Continue reading

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 113 (1.25.2020)

We’re back at it again this weekend morning with another edition of our weekend playlist. This time around, I finally warm up to last year’s White Ward album, Josh gets the new 1349 video in the mix, and Chris is still preaching the Kirk Windstein gospel to us. All this and more at the link below. Happy Saturday.

CANTO: Enslaved, Deathwhite, Woorms, and More

 

enslaved.2.17.18.56

Boston tomorrow. Lots of things to share tonight.

  • I caught this late last night, so I obviously need to share it today. Migration Fest 2020 details. The Gilead/20 Buck Spin festival dropped the first round of bands for next year, and highlights include Falls of Rauros, Yellow Eyes, False, and Vastum. If you follow either of these labels, those names won’t surprise you. But that doesn’t make it any less exciting!
  • Deathwhite has revealed that their next album, titled Grave Image, will be out on January 31st through Season Of Mist. I really enjoyed their debut, and if the first single from this effort is any indication, we could be in for another tremendous listen in a couple more months.
  • More album updates. Remember that killer album from Woorms that dropped just this past January, titled Slake? Well, we get even more Woorms this coming March. Twitching, as Prey will be released through The Hospital and Sludgelord Records. Here’s a new track, called “Silence and the Saints”. Pretty sure the album name in the caption is wrong but what are ya gonna do?
  • In case anyone needed an Enslaved update, I’m happy to report that they have re-signed with Nuclear Blast. They’ve been working together for about a decade, with excellent results I might add, so this is a good thing. With the announcement, the band also dropped a music video for “What Else Is There”. That particular number is a cover of the Röyksopp song and features as a bonus track on E.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
