From there, we’ll jump over to Wage War. The hard rockers unveiled a new video for “Godspeed (Stripped)” today, a new take on a track originally from 2021’s Manic. Give it a watch here, and catch Wage War on tour with A Day to Remember starting late next month.
Next, we have some Swiss thrash. Gomorra shared a new video for “Stand United”, the latest sample taken from Dealer of Souls. That album is set for a December 9th release through Noble Demon.
Ritual Death are releasing their self-titled debut album on December 5th through Shadow Records, and you can preview what’s to come with “Lunae” over on Bandcamp.
It’s Lorna Shore release date, so naturally we’ll end our week with the new video clip for “Pain Remains III: In a Sea of Fire”, the epic conclusion to Pain Remains. That album is available through Century Media.
When this comes out I’ll be 49 fucking years old. One goddamn year away from being half a century old. I haven’t been listening to metal for quite as long, but it’s close, you know? I gave quite a bit of thought about simply punting the playlist picks and just forcing all my favorite music down your throats. But I suppose age begets some kind of patience and humility, and besides…I’ll be doing that to my family all day. So maybe I’ll just sprinkle some aggressive favorites throughout and let you suss out which ones they are in this, the 234th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist.
I’m not going to do the usual gang of idiots round up (that’s a reference to Mad Magazine, the crew here all rule); but I’ll mention that folks seems to be pretty hot on new music from Artificial Brain, Gwar, Amon Amarth, Benighted and Origin. Find that inside plus a ton more music to get your weekend in the proper gear ratio.
The latest from Sepultura, Quadra, dropped today through, well, also Nuclear Blast. We can celebrate by checking out the new music video for “Means To An End”. I’ve heard this album is a good one. I should dabble eventually.
