nine circles logo podcast

It’s a packed episode this week, starting from an opening jab at everyone’s favorite metal punching bag, Sebastian Bach! From there, a new song round-up, some unfortunate news from Enabler, and new albums from Vardan, Possessor and, for better or worse, Cradle of Filth. (Spoiler alert: Dani Filth desperately needs to call it a day.)

All that and much, much more in Episode 9, so check it out!

Hey peoples! It’s Monday! Too enthusiastic you say? Well… you’re right. I’m actually miserable.

The song is called “Can’t Kill the Devil” and it doesn’t suck.

CANTO: Godflesh tour news, Slayer album news and GWAR interviews at Noisey

Now this here’s some dedication—we’re at Maryland Deathfest and queued up a Canto post for you heathens before we even got there. Granted, we did this a bit earlier in the day than we usually do, and thus might not have gotten all of the day’s happenings, but here’s what we’d missed as of…1:00 in the afternoon!

  • Kicking off with some can’t-miss tour news from Godflesh, who’ve announced a run of fall dates with Prurient. Tuesday, September 15, I’m looking at you.
  • Fan of Slayer? How about non-existent words? Well, we’ve got good news for you either way: the band announced that their new album, Repentless, will be out September 11!
  • Three of the guys in GWAR interviewed for an editorial position at Noisey. It went as ridiculously as you might expect.
  • Today in “filling space,” Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell was pissed when Metallica played Lollapalooza in 1996, but he isn’t now so I guess it’s cool? Hooray for “news,” you guys!
  • And finally, Enabler released a lyric video for their new song, “By Demons Denied.” Check it out here:

Nice. “By Demons Denied” will be out on Century Media on June 2, in both digital and limited edition 7″ formats. Anyway, time for more MDF. Catch you kids later on.

Keep it heavy,

Quickies: Guitar Center’s Troubles Continue, “Metalhead” Gets a Release Date, and more…

Welp, I’m wrapping up the most exhausting week at work I’ve had in some time. So I don’t want to spend any more time on this than I have to. Here are your Quickies for today:

Oh, Enabler. Come to New York again soon, please. Anyway, that’s all for now. Bye.

Keep it heavy,

-Dan

Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.

Album Review: Call of the Void – “Ageless”

a1168555630_2

On their second album Ageless, Denver’s Call of the Void return after two years with another twelve songs of metallic hardcore mixed with crust and a touch of sludge. Ageless works with a similar formula as its predecessor used, with a small amount of space and length added to song structures. The band has a pretty obvious set of influences, and the guys don’t really break the mold on Ageless any more than they did with their first album, but it’s still as well-crafted an album as any made by their peers.
