Visions ov Hell: Quarantined With Nine Circles, Part 1

Coronavirus bah

While many of you feel as though we are at a threat level shown in the image above, we certainly are not. Unless you’re searching for toilet paper or antibacterial gel and then, all bets are off. But seriously, tons of us are fighting with social distancing, schools being called off, stores baring less and less, restaurants and local bars calling it a day for awhile, and the barest of essentials unrelated to the virus being scarce at best. Thanks hoarders, we’ll be sure to flay your skin first in the next major pandemic. Anyway, while you’re at home, we understand there’s a huge need for entertainment and far be it from us to keep you from it. Consider this Part 1 of a need to keep the good times flowing with everything from Khemmis covering Dio, ACxDC’s new one, Warbringer, new Witchery and beyond. Plus, we’re hoping the new Black Crown Initiate will make Buke smile. Enjoy and stay safe, friends.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 110 (12.28.2019)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another Saturday mixtape. One that I don’t have to frantically throw together at the last Minute!  Because I actually managed to plan ahead for once!  Go me.  Let’s celebrate together with another batch of our favorite songs we’ve been listening to lately.  We’ve got a full house and some eclectic picks today, so there’s plenty out there for everyone.  Thanks for taking the time out to read the last one of these for this decade.

CANTO: King Diamond, Atreyu, Khemmis, and More

I got nothing. Well, nothing except loads and loads of tour announcements.

  • Most significantly, King Diamond, who announced a new album and tour today. The album, which will mark the first studio album in about 12 years, will be called The Institute. It won’t be released until sometime next year but we can expect a new single in the next few months it appears. And the tour. Holy crap the tour. They are November and December dates in North America, and support is in the form of Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and Idle Hands. This is absolutely incredible.
  • And then we have Khemmis and UnI would love to make this show happen as well, however those dates are specifically out west this coming December.
  • And then there’s Atreyu, who are going to hit the road in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band. Definitely not my realm of interest, but the idea behind this tour is cool; they are going to perform 20 songs, and those 20 songs were chosen by their fans. Those are U.S. dates in October and November with Whitechapel, He Is Legend, Tempting Fate, and Santa Cruz.
  • Now that (most) of today’s tour announcements are out of the way, let’s close with a little post-black metal. This comes from a band called Dawn of Ouroboros and the song is called “Sorrow’s Eclipse”. This track was pulled from their upcoming new album, The Art of Morphology. I’m into this. Check it out.

CANTO: Khemmis, Ghost, Tronos, and More

There is a very real chance this is the only Canto you see this week. None of me apologizes for that. Also, it’s April 1st… is any of this news even real?
