I’m very much ready for a beer. Or that vodka pictured above.

  • Since I’m only moments away from grabbing my first Friday beverage, it makes sense to start with Korpiklaani, who have launched their own vodka – spruce flavored! They also have a live stream event coming in late August.
  • Stockholm’s Lik have revealed details behind their third full-length album. Misanthropic Breed will be out on September 25th through Metal Blade Records, and you can hear the first single, “Decay”, right now.
  • Infera Bruo dropped some album news today as well. Rites of the Nameless is lined up for an October 16th release through Prosthetic Records, and, as always, this type of announcement always comes with new music. Here is “Mining Shadows For Unlight.”
  • Oceans Of Slumber shared their new video today for “The Colors of Grace”, a track taken from the upcoming self-titled release. That album drops on September 4th through Century Media Records.

So for this edition of Nine Circles ov…. I thought I’d try to run through a few recent releases and give them a little space here on the site, and also ease the burgeoning hemorrhage our inbox is suffering.  But time is short, and I can already see the next wave of promos coming in, so we’re gonna make this quick and relegate each release to a single sentence.  Ready? Set? Go!   Continue reading
