CANTO: Godsmack, Excalibur, Dio, and GosT

Ronnie James Dio

How long has it been, a week? Well, that’s about how long it has been since I’ve been home. Deal with it.

  • Godsmack are officially back on the road, and have announced additional dates today as well. But the real update here is the launch of Sully’s ‘Scars’ Foundation, which will raise awareness and funding for mental health.
  • This one is for Dan and anybody else obsessed with GosT. Here is a new single called “The Call of the Faithful”, which is taken from Skull 2019. As a reminder, that will be out on Century Media on May 3rd.
  • If you’re one of those people that’s interested in seeing that weird, and controversial, Dio hologram in person, this may be for you. The Dio Returns Tour 2019 will hit the U.S. with Tim “Ripper” Owens and Oni Logan as guest vocalists. I will not be there.
  •  The music video update at the top of my email list (literally, not figuratively) comes by way of Spain’s Excalibur. If you want some heavy metal in your life, check out this clip for “Las Hordas del Rock”.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 25 (1.15.2018)

NINE-CIRCLES_LOGO-Light Background_SQUARE

Fifteen days into 2018 and I’m already blown away by metal’s new releases and equally blown away by what’s to come. It was a busy weekend that was surrounded by a handful of these albums and by last night it hit me that I hadn’t listened to the same album twice (well, I did listen to that Pillärs album more than once). Yea, 2018 looks to rule, hard. Anyway, I need a weekend to rest from my weekend but bills and food and stuff, tough luck and back to work. Moving on, we’ve got another tasty playlist for you that should help wipe the cobwebs away so hit the play button below and don’t forget to keep up with us on YouTube right here. Continue reading

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from the last couple of days:

    • Leading off, Suffocation revealed the artwork for their new album, …Of the Dark Light, and let’s just say, it’s pretty dope. The album drops June 9 via Nuclear Blast.

    “Hence I will anoint and whisper wholeheartedly the creed of Hades and beyond, as I succumb to inevitable sin. For I cannot enslave myself with imaginary words of salvation. The hypocrisy that surrounds my temple is assisted by pretenders to the throne.”
