CANTO: The Lion’s Daughter, Massacre, Ghost Bath, and More

Well, it’s new release Friday, so let’s see what announcements came our way.

  • Looks like Ivar Bjornson and Einar Selvik are back with a new EP. Hardanger will be out on November 5th through By Norse Music. Additionally, Skuggsja (which I am still very much in love with) is getting a reissue at the same location. This is a good start to my evening.
  • The Lion’s Daughter have announced some cool things for this Bandcamp Friday. They released both a digital Turbo Covers EP as well as a pretty slick matching shirt. Jump on over to their Bandcamp and do that hockey. Side note: Skin Show is still a regular listen on this end.
  • We’ll add Ghost Bath to the mix today because their latest single, “Hide From The Sun”, features CJ McMahon of Thy Art Is Murder. Self Loather is out on October 29th through Nuclear Blast.
  • Tech death collective Atræ Bilis are streaming a new single as well, titled “Bacterium Abloom”. That track is taken from their upcoming 20 Buck Spin album, Apexapien, which will be out on October 8th (and vinyl coming in early December).
  • We like Massacre a lot here at Nine Circles, so we’re going to end the week with their new visualizer for “Ruins of R’lyeh”. Resurgence will be out on October 22nd through Nuclear Blast. Yes, I’ve already heard it. Yes, it’s awesome. Yes, you should pre-order it.

CANTO: Der Weg einer Freiheit, Fire In The Mountains, Obscura, and More

The news I have been awaiting quite awhile arrived today, and that’s awesome.

  • Referring, of course, to Der Weg einer Freiheit. Their fifth album will drop on November 19th, through Season of Mist, and it will be titled Noktvrn. Here’s an album trailer for now, but it sounds like the German black metallers will be sharing a new track and pre-order details in the near future.
  • And then we’ll jump over to the Grand Tetons and see what updates have emerged from Fire In The Mountains. Ivar Bjørnson has announced a batch of reconfirmations for the 2022 festival, including the likes of Yob and Wayfarer, among others. Ohhhhh how I cannot wait.
  • Hate has revealed new album details today. Rugia will be out on October 15th through Metal Blade Records, and you can check out the title-track and get your pre-order on at this location.
  • Experimental black metal project Le Chant Noir has named October 22nd as the international release date of La Société Satanique des Poètes Morts, their second album. That will be released through Personal Records, and you can stream “Priére á Satan”, the first single, right here.
  • Closing with the new Obscura track that dropped yesterday should make some people happy. This is the video for “A Valediction”, the title-track from their new album set for a November 19th release through Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders!
