CANTO: In Flames, Lacuna Coil, Defleshed, and More

In a complete RKO outta nowhere, the album I most anticipate this year might be Lorna Shore’s Pain Remains? Anyway…

CANTO: In Flames, Firtan, Carnation, and More

Another Monday. A very different Monday. But a Monday all the same.

  • There’s a lot of heavy news out there to start the week, so we’re going to go with something lighter. In Flames dropped a live clip of “The Great Deceiver” from Dalhalla Brinner, and also announced a new branded hot sauce. Random, but being the hot sauce connoisseur that I am… I’m not complaining!
  • German atmospheric black metallers Firtan revealed the second track from Marter, titled “Labsal”. Give that one a listen here. That album, by the way, is slated for a September 30th release through AOP Records.
  • Lots of live footage to share today. Next up we have Voyager, the electro power pop project out of Perth. The virtual performance of A Voyage Through Time from last year will be made available in full on August 26th through Season of Mist, and you can see a clip of “Runaway” right here and now.
  • Closing with some Belgian death metal, we have footage from Carnation at Hellfest 2022. Give their performance of “Stench of Death” a watch and listen below. That will eventually be released as a 7″, which you can order here.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 244 (8.13.2022)

Can we all agree the world is a garbage fire right now? I think we can all agree. We might not agree on the reasons WHY we think it’s a garbage fire, but maybe we can all unite under the commonality that the flames are curling ever closer to our toes. And if not, there’s always metal, right?

And to that end we’re kicking off the 244th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist with a couple veterans churning out some kille rnew music, like the latest from Megadeth and the reunion of Fates Warning alums Ray Alder and Mark Zonder in the aptly named A-Z. Plus we have razor sharp slices of new (not nu) metal from the likes of Sigh, Sumerlands, The Antichrist Imperium, Liminal Shroud and Arch Enemy. Plus some off the beaten path tracks from bands like Slowdive and Ride before jumping back into extremity with Black Anvil, In Flames, The Answer Lies in the Black Void and more!

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

CANTO: Fallujah, Malevolence, Choke, and More


Yeah, I’m not gonna lie, the heat is approaching a suffocating level at this point.

  • We’ll lead off this Thursday with some Fallujah, specifically referring to the latest, and final, single from Empyrean. Check out “Soulbreaker” here, and get ready for the release of that album on September 9th through Nuclear Blast.
  • We’ll jump over to At The Gates next, who unveiled a music video for “Garden Of Cyrus”. That’s a track taken from The Nightmare of Being, which dropped last year through Century Media. Oh, and if you’re across the pond, they’re doing a killer run of shows with In Flames closer to the end of the year.
  • Want some death grind in your Thursday playlist? Check out the latest from Choke. They have a new EP dropping through Translation Loss titled Desiphon, and a video for “Lust For Death” is streaming over at Metal Injection if you want to give them a click.
  • And we’ll jump back to Nuclear Blast to close things out. Below is the new video from Malevolence for “Higher Place”. Malicious Intent is out now, and can be purchased here. They also have a ton of tour dates coming up, but you’ll have to seek those details out on your own.

CANTO: In Flames, Hierophant, Collapse Culture, and More


It’s Monday. The pickings are a little slim today, but let see what we can dig up.

  • We’ll lead off with some Italian death metal. Hierophant unveiled a new single, titled “Devil Incarnate”. That’s the latest one from Death Siege, which is slated for an August 26th release through Season of Mist. Here’s the purchase link, for those looking for it.
  • This next one is somewhat FITM-related, so I’m dropping it in. Munly & The Lupercalians are releasing a new album on August 26th through Scacunincorporated titled Kinnery Of Lupercalia; Undelivered Legion. Originally out in March exclusively for their fan club, it’s soon to be available to all. Cool.
  • Psychedelic/techno duo Collapse Culture, which features Kowloon Walled City and Bleach Everything members, are releasing their second album on September 16th. Drag Your Coffin My Lord will be out through Pax Aeternum. Check out “Nuclear Semiotics (Superstructure Collapse)” here.
  • Rounding out the day with something a bit more notable, we have another new track from In Flames. This one is titled “The Great Deceiver”, and much like “State of Slow Decay”, it brings some weight. Needless to say, I’m happy about this recent trend. Anyway, the video is below. Enjoy.
