Orange Goblin have had to reschedule their 25th anniversary tour as a result of the pandemic, but that won’t stop them from celebrating the occasion. As an alternative, they will be streaming two live shows, on December 18th and 19th in London. Get your tickets right here!
Hey all, happy Friday. And a desperately needed Friday at that. Corey here, stepping in for this week’s edition of Receiving the Evcharist, a column where we somewhat randomly pair a chosen album with a preferred choice of adult beverage. This week, I’m exploring Quelle, the latest from Briqueville, along with the Transformer Pale Ale from Barreled Souls. Shall we?
This episode of The Nine Circles Audio Thing is all about the Album of the Month for September which is Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic by Germany’s post metal/progressive metal juggernauts The Ocean which is available now on Metal Blade Records and Pelagic Records. Buke once again captains the episode joined by Vince, Ian, Angela, Hera (Cat), and Jon!
PG.Lost, the post metal project featuring former members of Ghost and current members of Cult of Luna, have announced a new album scheduled for a November 20th release through Pelagic Records. It will be titled Oscillate, and you can check out the first single, “E22”, right now.
And we’ll close with some death metal because that’s about what I need right now. Here is Demonical with their new video for “My Kingdom Done”. World Domination drop on October 23rd through Agonia Records.
Oh hi. Last week’s list was long but this week’s list is longer. Score. Annnnnd, we’re off… The Ocean has yet to release anything less than stellar and this week’s second Phanerozoic chapter is no exception—expect another epic tour-de-force. If you’re in the camp of saying how much Uada sounds like x band or y band, this week’s third full length will change that as they reach far outside the confines of just black metal and come up with all aces. Speaking of great third full lengths, Svalbard return with what might be their finest post-metal, punk, abrasive yet ethereal moment to date, the amount this band has grown in a short time is unbelievable. Bringing the top four to a close, we have yet another third full length from Lik who bring the Swedeath HEAT. So, exceptional top four here but there’s a ton more to seek out immediately below. Happy hunting.
