We’ll jump to a tour next. Avatar have announced a July headlining tour, with Light The Torch and Otep. That kicks off on July 6th in Toronto and ends the 31st in Tucson. Tickets are available here.
Oh look, GWAR released a new single. “Mother Fucking Liar” can be streamed here. That’s taken from The New Dark Ages, which drops on June 3rd. As a reminder, they’re on tour in May and June with Goatwhore, The Native Howl, and Nekrogoblikon.
Finally, from Cave In, the clip for “Blood Spiller” is below. That’s the latest track taken from Heavy Pendulum. As a reminder, that is out on May 20th through Relapse Records, and I cannot wait to get that one in the mail.
Goblins are always fun, so let’s wrap up the day with the latest from Nekrogoblikon. The clip for “Golden Future” is below, a track taken from The Fundamental Slimes and Humours. That one is out on April 1st. Pre-order it here.
If you need some more traditional metal in your life tonight, here’s a new one from Maule, titled “Sword Woman”. That’s taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut album, which drops on the 14th through Gates of Hell Records.
We’re going to end the day on a high note. A personal, local favorite of mine, KYOTY, are releasing a new album titled Isolation on February 24th through Deafening Assembly. Check out the video for “Quarantine” below.
Saturday Canto because I was too lazy to bust this out yesterday. Let’s find out what happened on Friday…
I haven’t heard much from Nekrogoblikon in a minute, so here’s a new video from that project for “Right Now”. Apparently that video serves as a teaser for John Goblikon’s new talk show of the same name… something I probably won’t be checking out, in all honesty.
I’m not sure where you all are, but here in New York it finally feels like Autumn…right on the porch knocking at the door of All Hallow’s Eve. It’s the time of frights, of golds and browns and dark and whispers. So I can’t think of a better way to kick off the two hundred and third Nine Circles playlist than with a little Samhain to get you all in the mood. And since more than a few of the staff are completely head over heels for the new Mastodon, we threw a doozy of a late track in here for you, too.
Elsewhere we got you covered no matter your tastes: Josh comes in hot with some classic Fastway and one of my favorites for the year, Green Lung. Zyklonius is gushing over the new tech metal from Allegaeon, while Vincent throws some delicious curveballs with toe and his beloved Mountain Goats. We’re not quite back to the extreme, as our Northern Brother Jon dips into his first tastes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, but tempers it with some mewithoutyou. The Man with the Mic himself Buke goes old and new school with Manowar and Monolord, while Ian goes crazy for Archspire and Angela digs into the new Ghost Bath and closes us out with a bonafide classic from Siouxsie and the Banshees. And that’s only the tip of iceberg of what’s in store, so buckle up, grab your mask, and hit play below. We’ll see you next week.
