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.
Can’t a guy take a few weeks off with dozens upon dozens of new albums being scattered into the winds? Thank the heavens for Ian and Angela, who covered (and covered me) with reviews of Ithaca, Imperial Triumphant, and Wailin Storms so I was able to read up and listen while burning to a crisp in Mexico. But – like every week – that was just the tip of the iceberg for heavy music, so for this edition of Nine Circles ov… let’s play a quick game of catch-up with a bunch of releases from the past two weeks we didn’t cover on the site.
I have coffee and copious amounts of aloe vera applied to various appendages. Let’s do this.
At least it’s finally nice out and stuff. Mondays still suck.
It looks as though Cloak is going to spend most of 2022 on the road, and that is good news for all of us. Following their current run with Acid Witch, they’ll embark on a brief tour with Bewitcherin June and July. No dates near me, unfortunately.
I ran 11 miles today, and am planning on running 11 less tomorrow.
So I generally can’t stand Metal Injection for a variety of reasons, but I do need to take a second to comment on how awesome the lineup is for the Slay at Home finale. Rotting Christ, Cannabis Corpse, and Black Tusk are only a few of the names I have circled.
Hells Headbangers will be reissuing a couple of Incantation records, including Decimate Christendom (2004) and Primordial Domination (2006). They’ll be available on CD come June 11th, and on cassette for the first time on July 30th. Here’s a link to more information as well as order details.
Florida deathcore crew Bodysnatcher have announced a U.S. headlining tour this fall, and tickets are on sale now here. The dates are in October and November, and support will be in the form of Boundaries, Left To Suffer, and Mouth For War.
And we’ll wrap up the day, and likely the week, with the new video from Pestilence for “Deificvs”. That’s another track taken from Exitivm, which is set for a June 25th release through Agonia Records. Pick it up here, and check out the video below.
I’m kicking this off with a plug, because I can. Head over to Magnetic Eye’s Bandcamp page and preorder the upcoming Dirt [Redux]. I’m generally not a fan of cover albums or reimagining type of deals but this one is all that and a bag of chips. Alrighty then, plug over and time to showcase all the new metals this week, YAY. It’s only been three years since Incantation’s last album but with this week’s release of their 12th full length the wait is well worth it and even though they’ve got nothing to prove they still show their supremacy in a stellar year for death metal. Speaking of stellar death metal, Cytotoxin offer up their fourth full length of Chernobyl inspired putridity, Unleash the Archers continue to put the “power” in power metal, and Volcanova rip stoner metal a new asshole. As always, there’s a ton more to dig into so get busy.Continue reading →
