CANTO: Mercury Circle, Paladin, Blindfolded and Led to the Woods, and More

Alright, today was a little less stupid than yesterday, and I’ll take it.

  • Paladin has announced the “Shredocalypse” U.S. tour, which will also feature Immortal Guardian and Unleash the Archers for a couple of dates. The tour kicks off on August 17th and runs through September 11th, with more dates to be announced later, apparently.
  • Prosthetic Records have added a new name to their roster. Blindfolded and Led to the Woods have signed on and have already started writing their follow-up to Nightmare Withdrawals, which was self-released earlier this year. Looks like we can expect a new album early(?) in 2022.
  • Chicago-based black metal project Annihilus has announced a new album, Follow A Song From The Sky, which is set for an August 13th release through Federal Prisoner. Pre-order the album here, and keep an eye out for a new track titled “Draw the Beast”, which is floating around somewhere.
  • And we’ll wrap up our Tuesday with Mercury Circle, who have shared a track from their upcoming debut full-length, Killing Moons. That album is set for an October 8th release through Noble Demon, but you can peep the new clip for “Black Mirrors” below. Enjoy.

CANTO: Allegaeon, Nile, Porn, and More

Allegaeon

“Life’s a stage and we’re all in the cast.”

  • Allegaeon have announced a U.S. headlining tour that will also feature the likes of Fallujah, Entheos, and Etherius. Those dates are all in April. This one is pretty tasty, I might need to dabble.
  • Alright, so there’s a lot of tour stuff out there today. This also includes Nile’s 43 date, second installment of the Vile Nilotic Rites tour. Those dates are September through November, however. So you’ll need to wait a spell for that one.
  • Fine, one more tour. Paladin with Aether Realm. The Atlanta thrashers (not referring to the defunct hockey team, but that is kinda funny), will be on the road in April and May. I might check this one out too, because why not?
  • And we will close with the latest video from Porn, for a track called “Low Winter Hope, pt.2”. No Monsters in God’s Eyes – Act III will be out this coming March.

Welcome to another Saturday mixtape. We’ve got a whole lot of good stuff put together for you today, and seeing as how I’m battling my first hangover of the Christmas party season I won’t waste too much time pontificating over it. Besides, you trust us at this point, right? Dive in at your leisure.

playlist - mixtape

Welcome back to number 101 folks.  We may have just hit mixtape number 100 in our weekly series, but the confetti is all swept up and we’re back in business mode here at 9CHQ.  Just kidding, it’s always a party when we do these things, because we love sharing music with you all.  This week, I’m in Yeehaw Mode (TM), our interview wizard Matt is loving the new Toxic Holocaust, and the return of Castle Metal gives us all something to be grateful for.  Check out these and much more (ed: and DEATH METAL) below.
