Good morning weekend warriors. On this edition of our Saturday morning mixtape we have a slew of new singles from Feminazgûl, Wolves in the Throne Room, Deafheaven, Lantlôs, and more. Plus, we’ve got a twenty-three minute jam care of our own Anton, some doom, and even the requisite screamo jam. Tune in down below.
Imperial Triumphant are returning to the stage this coming October. They’ll be joined by Pyrrhon for a headlining tour that runs across the United States from October 15th through the 31st. I really, really hope to make it to one of these shows.
Switching gears a bit, Ego Kill Talent have announced a new acoustic EP series. The first of three installments, which includes tracks “Our Song”, “Diamonds & Landmines”, and “The Reason”, will drop on July 9th. The release dates for the other two EPs in the Ego Kill Talent: Acoustic project are still to be determined.
British prog metallers Threshold have announced their return to the studio. They’ll be recording the follow-up to 2017’s Legends Of The Shire. Most of the details behind the new album are still to come, but we can expect an early 2022 release through Nuclear Blast.
We’ll wrap up Tuesday with the new video from Endseeker for “Bloodline”. That track is taken from Mount Carcass, which dropped back in April through Metal Blade. Check it out below.
FINE. Soulfly have announced a North American tour, spanning August and September. They’ll be joined by Niviane and Suicide Puppets. More info can be found here. I guess tickets are on sale now, I just couldn’t find a link. I also didn’t try to find a link.
Have we already mentioned this? I have no idea. May as well drop it in just in case. Swallow The Sun have announced their first live album, 20 Years Of Gloom, Beauty And Despair – Live in Helsinki, which is set for a July 30th release through Century Media.
Welcome to this week’s Nine Circles Saturday morning mixtape playlist. This week, we’ve got the much requested (seriously like four people picked this one) new single from Zeal and Ardor, some classic Necrophagist, and a usual barrage of death metal from our esteemed Editor in Chief. Take a listen below and kick that (hopefully for most of you) long weekend off.
Mount Carcass is the latest from German death metal merchants Endseeker, and it dives deep into that classic old school sound pioneered by the likes of Entombed, Carnage, and Dismember. Sure, it’s easy to grab an HM-2 and tune down to Drop B, but Endseeker bring the songwriting chops and vision to not just emulate the old guard but bring their own modern spin to the genre. The riffs are tight, the groove is firmly in the pockets, and the tone? Chef’s kiss, my friends.
