Drafting this at lunch because my night is going to be spent moving. Super fun, I know.

Initial Descent: October 30 – November 5, 2022

Acid Witch

Happy Halloween, IT IS UPON US. I’ve loved this day since being a kid and even though there’s no bag of candy for me come night time, I’ve had a treat bag full of horror movies since the month changed. But really, that’s an all year thing and no excuses needed. My point? There’s not one, ha. Anyway, speaking of horror and new metal releases, we’ve got two extremely well timed picks kicking the week off from Acid Witch and VHS that show just how thin the veil between horror and metal is. Following that we’ve got a banger from Black Anvil, more death metal from Ingested, and many more treats in the list that follows. Why yes, there might be some tricks here too but you’ll have to see for yourself. Be careful out there tonight with all the kiddos wandering around and by all means, watch a horror movie (PSA: Screambox is premiering Terrifier 2 today for those of us that didn’t have the option of a theater viewing and they offer a healthy free trial). Jump below and investigate, we’ll see you here throughout the week.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 252 (10.8.2022)

The weather’s turning colder, which means it’s time to wear a sweater…and jump into some extremity. Let’s not mince words and instead jump right into the 252nd edition of the Nine Circles Playlist.

We’re starting with new music from Ritual Dictates and Blind Illusion, and the the crew takes over with new Ingested, Ripped to Shreds and Mord’A’Stigmata. We also turn the volume down a bit with Touche Amore and Lantlôs before ramping it back up with Glassing and a whole bunch more.

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

CANTO: Ingested, The Offering, At The Gates, and More

I’m drafting this in the middle of the afternoon, while contemplating a beer. Not great.

  • We’ll lead off with The Offering, who dropped a new track titled “Flower Children”. The lyric video for that one is available here. Their sophomore album, titled Seeing the Elephant, is set for a November 4th release through Century Media.
  • Liturgy has announced a new album as well, but we’ll have to wait until March 23rd for that one. 93696 will be out through Thrill Jockey, and you can listen to the title-track right here. They’ve also got some upcoming tour dates if that interests you.
  • At The Gates have announced the return of founding member and guitarist Anders Björler. This announcement falls about a month ahead of their upcoming European tour with In Flames, Imminence, and Orbit Culture.
  • From there, we’ve got a new video from Anti-Flag for “Modern Meta Medicine”, which features Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage). Lies They Tell Our Children is out on January 6th via Spinefarm.
  • Let’s close out the day with a new video from Ingested. The clip below is for “From Hollow Words”, which features Sven de Caluwé of Aborted. That’s taken from Ashes Lie Still, set for a November 4th release through Metal Blade.

CANTO: Black Anvil, Ingested, Judicator, and More

This week, much like last week, can go right in the fucking shredder.

  • Ingested are releasing Ashes Lie Still on November 4th through Metal Blade, and today they unveiled the video for “Tides of Glass”. It’s awesome. Be sure to catch them on tour with Lorna Shore this coming October and November.
  • Going in a bit of a different direction, Judicator have announced details surrounding their new album. The Majesty of Decay is set for a November 25th release through Prosthetic Records. The lead single, “The High Priestess”, is streaming over at Metal Injection.
  • Florida black/doom metal collective Worm are releasing a new EP on October 28th through 20 Buck Spin, titled Bluenothing. I really enjoyed Foreverglade from last year, so yes I’m excited about this. Anyway, here’s a teaser for ya.
  • We’re going to close the day, and maybe my week, with the second track from Black Anvil off of Regenesis. This one is titled “8 Bit Terror”, and you can see the video for it below. For what it’s worth, I enjoy this track much more than the last offering. That album drops on November 4th through Season of Mist.
