After having not been in Boston for almost two years, I guess I’ll be there the next two days?
Trivium have announced a couple of upcoming livestream shows, which will be performed from their new HQ, “The Hangar”. In Waves is set for December 11th, with Deadmen & Dragons set for the following week. Tickets are available here.
As if Worship wasn’t an awesome enough record, the latest effort from Hypocrisy became the first metal album in space. The event took place as part of a special listening experience at the album’s release last Friday. Give it a watch here if you’re curious.
And we’ll close with some German thrash, in the form of Bonded. They just released a new video for “Watch (While The World Burns”), a track taken from Into Blackness. That album dropped back on November 12th, also through Century Media.
Ghost Bath, fresh off the release of Self Loather, have shared a drum playthrough for “Flickering Wicks of Black”. I don’t usually watch these playthrough videos, mostly because I’m a failed musician, but every so often a good one comes around… and this falls into that category. Still need a copy of the album? Order it here.
And we’re going to close with the latest video from Hypocrisy. Yes, I’m bookending this with news from last week. Go figure. Anyway, this is the clip for “Children of the Grey”. As a reminder, Worship is out on November 26th through Nuclear Blast.
I’m not sure where you all are, but here in New York it finally feels like Autumn…right on the porch knocking at the door of All Hallow’s Eve. It’s the time of frights, of golds and browns and dark and whispers. So I can’t think of a better way to kick off the two hundred and third Nine Circles playlist than with a little Samhain to get you all in the mood. And since more than a few of the staff are completely head over heels for the new Mastodon, we threw a doozy of a late track in here for you, too.
Elsewhere we got you covered no matter your tastes: Josh comes in hot with some classic Fastway and one of my favorites for the year, Green Lung. Zyklonius is gushing over the new tech metal from Allegaeon, while Vincent throws some delicious curveballs with toe and his beloved Mountain Goats. We’re not quite back to the extreme, as our Northern Brother Jon dips into his first tastes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, but tempers it with some mewithoutyou. The Man with the Mic himself Buke goes old and new school with Manowar and Monolord, while Ian goes crazy for Archspire and Angela digs into the new Ghost Bath and closes us out with a bonafide classic from Siouxsie and the Banshees. And that’s only the tip of iceberg of what’s in store, so buckle up, grab your mask, and hit play below. We’ll see you next week.
Sticking with Nuclear Blast for now, Enforcer released a new single today, titled “At The End Of The Rainbow”. That’s a standalone single, but you can pick up Live By Fire II, their latest live album which dropped back in March, right here.
As a way of celebrating Halloween, here’s some fresh stuff from Tombs. They shared a cover of Samhain’s song “The Shift”, through Season of Mist, which can be streamed here.
And we’ll knot up the week with the new video, more of a short film, from Imminence for “Chasing Shadows”. That’s taken from the upcoming new album, Heaven In Hiding, which is out on November 26th through Arising Empire.
The Lion’s Daughter have announced some cool things for this Bandcamp Friday. They released both a digital Turbo Covers EP as well as a pretty slick matching shirt. Jump on over to their Bandcamp and do that hockey. Side note: Skin Show is still a regular listen on this end.
Tech death collective Atræ Bilis are streaming a new single as well, titled “Bacterium Abloom”. That track is taken from their upcoming 20 Buck Spin album, Apexapien, which will be out on October 8th (and vinyl coming in early December).
We like Massacre a lot here at Nine Circles, so we’re going to end the week with their new visualizer for “Ruins of R’lyeh”. Resurgence will be out on October 22nd through Nuclear Blast. Yes, I’ve already heard it. Yes, it’s awesome. Yes, you should pre-order it.
