Premiere: Gargowitch — “Cannibal Troten”

You may recall the premiere of “Les doigts de lampée – De la merde, lacustre – Cannibal troten“ back in March right here at Nine Circles. That stream, of course, was brought forth in anticipation of the first ever physical release of the first demos from French black noise practitioners Gargowitch, Avidee and Cannibal Troten. And today, it is our absolute pleasure to share the entirety of the mind-numbing journey that is Cannibal Troten, the latter of the two releases. Get lost in the 46 minutes of complete chaos immediately after the jump.

Rainbows in the Dark: god|screaming|breathing — “19-1-2019”

Imagine it: you’re wandering through the Appalachian forests, or maybe the Mohave desert or the ruins of an East Coast metropolis, or wherever the post-apocalypse collapse of the United States has taken you, and you turn on your Pip Boy to listen in to whatever radio frequencies still work.  Amid the static and the garbled transmissions broadcast over the spectrum, you find a lone guitar, gently strumming through some folk chords, not really playing anything intentional, but more for the sake of drawing a peaceful mood amid all the chaos.  That’s exactly what god|screaming|breathing and their newest offering 19-1-2019 is.

Video Premiere: Domestikwom — “Queen of Putrescence”

On March 9th, exactly one week from today, Domestikwom’s Wallowing in Misery EP will see a physical release through Philip K. Discs. Originally offered as a digital-only release last summer, amidst the height of the global pandemic, we at Nine Circles are extremely excited to celebrate the limited cassette run for this project, and the first release of the year from PKD, with the premiere of the impressively jarring new video for “Queen of Putrescence.” While the second track on the EP has been available for streaming through Bandcamp, this added visual element offers a completely different experience and is well-worth the emotional exploration. Give it a watch for yourself directly below.
