CANTO: Deviant Process, Bad Omens, Buckcherry, and More

I think I’m ready to buy a new camera. Fun fact.

  • Sure, we can start with Buckcherry I suppose. They’re teaming up with The Lacs for a winter tour kicking off on January 7th in Texas. Tickets, including VIP packages, go on sale this Friday at this location.
  • Underoath, a thing I’ve personally never cared for but many people very much do, have announced the “Digital Ghost” cinematic concert. It’s set for December 3rd, and serves as your first chance to hear Voyeurist in full. As a reminder, that album officially drops on January 14th.
  • Bad Omens are dropping a new album on February 25th, titled The Death of Peace of Mind. That will be out through Sumerian Records, and you can watch the video for the title track right now.
  • Délétère and Sarkrista are releasing a new split on December 2th through Sepulchral Productions. You can purchase that here, which you should, because these projects are pretty dope.
  • We’ll wrap up Wednesday with the new video from Deviant Process, for “Emergence”. Their new album, Nurture, dropped back on October 15th through Season of Mist.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 197 (9.18.2021)

playlist - mixtape

It’s Saturday. You already know we’ve got you covered. This week our playlist features a treasure trove of new singles; everything from the crushing piano-driven sorrow of Emma Ruth Rundle‘s “Return” to the crushing-in-a-different-sense-of-the-word swampy metal of Worm‘s “Empire of the Necromancers” gets a spot. If you’re looking for the best of what’s new, check all that out and more below.

CANTO: Fire In The Mountains, The Devil’s Trade, Benediction, and More

Hurray! Festival news that is relevant to me!

  • And that, of course, refers to Fire In The Mountains. A new batch of bands was announced, including Yellow Eyes, Visigoth, Lykotonon, and more. The 2022 version of this festival is going to be absolutely massive. Tickets are available at this location.
  • Megadeth has named a bassist for the upcoming tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed. James LoMenzo will be stepping in for that run of shows, after Megadeth parted ways with David Ellefson. Those dates start August 20th in Austin, Texas. Tickets are available here.
  • Canadian technical death metallers Deviant Process premiered a new song from Nurture, titled “The Hammer of Dogma”. That album is set for an October 15th release through Season of Mist.
  • I’m going to drop in a couple new videos today, one of which comes from Benediction. Here’s the new video for “Tear Off These Wings”, from their most recent album, Scriptures, which dropped last October through Nuclear Blast.
  • And lastly, The Devil’s Trade released a new live video for “Három Árva”, a track taken from last year’s The Call of the Iron Peak (Season of Mist). Give it a watch below. It’s awesome.

Best of 2016: Zyklonius’ List

Nine Circles Best of 2016 Standard

I am writing this intro blurb on Christmas eve, on Lemmy’s birthday and almost exactly a year after his death. Today, the largest newspaper in Finland published a fascinating article discussing Lemmy’s life (unfortunately in Finnish). The article’s lead paragraph notes the failure of humanity to carry on without Lemmy and the shockwave his death created, paving the way for 2016 in all its depressing grimness. Continue reading
