The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 243 (8.6.2022)

Thanks Fearless Editor Josh™ for covering the last two weeks of the playlist while I was away. I survived on a steady diet of alcohol and 80s thrash, and I *think* I got most of it out of my system by now.

Anyway, we’re gonna streamline this thing moving forward. You got tracks from the likes of Warforged, City of Caterpillar, Krisiun, and Amon Amarth, not to mention a whole lot of other stuff that may or may not be heavy. I mean, it’s the 243rd edition of the Nine Circles playlist, after all. What else did you expect? Well, since I’m back maybe you expected some classic rock or maybe some 80s thrash. We’ll see. There will definitely be some Boris, that’s for damn sure…maybe some Incantation, Night Eternal, you know – stuff like that.

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

CANTO: Benighted, Capra, Heilung, and More

Home from Boston early enough to knock out a Canto? Not bad at all.

  • Leading off, we have new material for Capra. Here is the video for “Red Guillotine”, a track taken from In Transmission, which dropped last year through Blacklight and Metal Blade. As an aside, be sure to catch them on the road with Whores and Bummer all through this month.
  • Heilung are releasing their third full-length album on August 19th through Season of Mist, titled Drif. Along with this news, they released a video teaser for a track titled “Anoana”, which can be seen and heard here.
  • Black metal solo artist Hulder is releasing The Eternal Fanfare MLP through 20 Buck Spin this coming July, and today unveiled the artwork, track list, and most importantly the first single, “Sylvan Awakening”. July tour dates with Skeleton are on the horizon as well.
  • Let’s close with the new video from Benighted for “Casual Piece of Meat”. It’s pretty damn wild. That’s another sample from their 2020 album, Obscene Repressed, which is out through Season of Mist. If you need to round out your day with some deathgrind, this is a good place to start.

CANTO: God Forbid, Moloken, Heilung, and More

Is this still fun? Honestly some days it’s hard to tell.

CANTO: Crowbar, Arch Enemy, Heilung, and More

Well, this week certainly isn’t playing out as we drew it up.

CANTO: Tool, The Ocean, Heilung, and More

Alright, so this weekend may have been a smidge more aggressive than I originally anticipated. Oops.

  • I guess it only makes sense that we fall in line and start with the Tool tour announcement. There will be an extensive run of shows in both the U.S. and Europe the first half of 2022. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 1st, and I’m already intimidated by how much these tickets may go for.
  • Alright, let’s talk booze. Heilung have announced their signature beer and mead. For now, us in the U.S. can scoop up the beer here, which was created with brewery Nevel. I’m more intrigued by the mead, so I’ll stay tuned for now.
  • Bastarður, the crust punk project fronted by Aðalbjörn Tryggvason, released another new single from the upcoming new record, Satan’s Loss of Son. Check out “The Whispering Beast” right here. As a reminder, that album is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
  • And we’ll close with The Ocean, who shared the first clip from the upcoming release of Phanerozoic Live. Check out the clip for “Devonian: Nascent” below. That footage, of course, is from the streaming event performed in Bremen. The live album drops on November 26th.
