Alright, after a some time off I think I’m finally getting the wheels turning again. Not at work, of course. But everywhere else, for sure.
This is from last week, but since I can’t get enough of Insomnium I’m going to share it anyway. The Finnish melodic death metal legends announced a new EP, Argent Moon, which is set for a September 17th release through Century Media. In conjunction, they also dropped a new track and video titled “The Antagonist”. Personally, I love the melancholy vibe of the last few singles I’ve heard. This band can do no wrong.
Bastardur, the crust punk project from Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), has officially signed on with Season of Mist and announced new album details. Satan’s Loss of Son will be out on October 29th, and you can preview what’s to come with the new single titled “Viral Tumor”.
Let’s close out a very weird day with the new single and video from Mono, who I love dearly. This track it titled “Riptide”, which is taken from Pilgrimage of the Soul. That album is set for a September 17th release through Pelagic Records.
Igorrr have announced a North American tour next February and March with Melt-Banana and Vowws. This will be their first trek in support of Spirituality and Distortion, which is pretty cool. There’s some time to kill before these dates, but you can find tickets here.
Welcome to this week’s Nine Circles Saturday morning mixtape playlist. This week, we’ve got Grey Aura‘s abstract black metal, the newest single from death metal stalwarts Hooded Menace, classic Batushka (from before there were, like, 80 of them), and much more. All available, free of charge, at the link below. Unless you feel like giving us your credit card information. We’ll gladly take it.
I echo what Corey said in yesterday’s Canto: “This was one long fucking week.” For some, it’s done. For others, it’s not. Either way we’ve got another loaded mixtape, of stuff we’ve been spinning, to burn the day off with. We’ve got a killer opening pair with new Withered and Cryptosis, Insomnium, The Lion’s Daughter (insane new album that is), Wo Fat, Putrefying Cadaverment, Kauan, Dark Tranquillity, and a ton more. Whether you’re working, playing, drinking, or whatever, we’ve got the goods to get you through the day. Slap that play button below.
