Alright friends, readers, enemies, and foes; this is the week I’ve been sitting on pins and needles for. And also the week that has lightened my wallet the most via preorders. Take note, homies and homettes. The best current offering for sick and nasty deathgoregrind is Fluids and they are up this week with their third full length of sick and nasty ass tunes to get the juices flowing, resurrecting Massacre by way of a tad more groove and a lot more Floridian swamp ass is Inhuman Condition with their spot on excellent debut, technical metal god Hannes Grossmann is back with another slab of greatness, and progressive doom champions Boss Keloid return for an album that will challenge every thought you have about that genre as well as their previous output aaaand it is amazing. All that and a crap ton more awaits below so get your wallets ready, this is the week you will clean out all the dust in said wallet. Enjoy!Continue reading
Anyone familiar with Epitaph era Necrophagist or Obscura or Alkaloid, to name a few, will undoubtedly be familiar with Hannes Grossmann as he was an integral driving force behind all of it. Beyond drumming, he’s also a sound engineer and producer with a long list of credits under his belt. As if all that wasn’t enough, we’re on the eve of his fourth solo album, To Where the Light Retreats, which promises to be as technical and heavy as anything he’s ever been a part of. Head inside for an in depth discussion via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.Continue reading
Hannes Grossmann (Alkaloid, Blotted Science, Hate Eternal, ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist) is set to release his sophomore solo album whenever his crowdfunding campaign allows. Hannes did this a bit differently than the usual campaign. You can basically purchase stock in the album by way of pre-sale. A bit more interesting since you have the chance to actually hear a bit of the product you’re investing in. The media presence has been pretty intense. You can catch a video chat with Hannes here. Last month saw the debut of the first single from The Crypts of Sleep which you can listen to here.
