Allegaeon’s Riley McShane on voicing a character in the Resident Evil series, gaming and favorite platforms, favorite vocalists in death metal, future band plans, and so much more!

Allegaeon

Allegaeon has fast become a household name in the tech death metal arena, and for good reason. Their last album Apoptosis was a beacon in the tech-melodic-death-metal arena and placed the band on the same wavelength as the giants in this genre. And maybe even head and shoulders above their competition. Eye of the beholder sort of thing, obviously, but these dudes are the real deal. Period. With that said, head inside for an in depth discussion with Riley McShane via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.

Gwar’s Blothar on new EP “The Disc With No Name,” the 30th anniversary extravaganza of “Scumdogs of the Universe,” whether or not Covid was their fault, and much more!

Gwar is an absolute metal institution and one that has stood the test of time for 37 years strong. They’ve done things their own way and have carved their own path from the word go and have been inspiration to so many bands since their 1984 start and to be clear, not many bands can lay claim to as many accolades as Gwar is worthy of. Fuckin’ legends, is what I’m saying. If anyone needs an intro to this band…leave the hall. With that said, head inside for an in depth discussion with Blothar via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.

Not much small talk to be found. It’s early. And, I’m only on my second pot of coffee. So, let’s skip it. Now, if you’re an Enslaved fan, this is the week you’ve (we’ve) been waiting for as their fifteenth full length lands on Friday. It’s epic but that’s a surprise to literally no one. Anaal Nathrakh return with their most varied output to date and dare I say their most…progressive? On first blush it seems that way but you’ll have to decide for yourself—you know, your own opinion. Gorephilia nail the 90s death metal aesthetic and Fate plug into some seriously high voltage metal and punk to close out the top slots with a BANG. You know the drill by now but just in case, there’s a ton more to dig into below so go shuck cash at these artists and support them.
