The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 238 (7.2.2022)

In the United States a lot of folks are celebrating Independence Day, which falls on July 4th. Myself, I’m celebrating a Monday off and an extended weekend in the woods with my family as I contemplate life, the universe, and everything, to crib from a certain Douglas Adams.

Oh, and I’m kicking off this 238th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist with an awesome band I just discovered: Kryptograf. They deal in some crazy psychedelic stoner doom rock straight out of Birmingham 1970 if you catch my drift. Great stuff. I may have also thrown in some vintage Darkthrone because I just got my limited edition white vinyl of A Blaze in the Northern Sky. Elsewhere Anton is repping Pelagic Records hard with tracks from Psychonaut and Hiroe, as well as a new cut from Conan. Vincent brings the madness with new music from Alexisonfire, Pianos Become the Teeth, Gaerea, and another cut from the fantastic new release by Inexorum. Finally Josh is going to wrap it up today with a host of great extreme music, including cuts from Werewolves, Spirit Adrift, Peelingflesh, Mongrel, and the newest single from Bloodbath that is so damn good I bumped it to the top of the playlist.

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

CANTO: Dread Sovereign, Demon Incarnate, Burning Witches, and More

No shortage of items to cover today. A curious amount of new videos for a non-Friday… which we’ll mostly skip.

  • Anyway, we’ll start with Barishi, who have announced a virtual concert via Gimme TV. It’s a replay of their performance at the Stone Church in Brattleboro, VT, and it will air tomorrow at 7:00 EDT. Download the app to tune in for free and all that good stuff.
  • The next free concert stream features Burning Witches. That event takes place on the release day of their new album, The Witch Of The North, May 28th. Pre-order the record here, which is out through Nuclear Blast, and stream the event at this location.
  • You know what? Screw it. One more concert stream I want to share. I’ve been listening to their split EP all day, so we may as well share links to the Psychonaut and Sâver performances for Roadburn Redux. That was a great take on a virtual festival, and we should all be thrilled some of the footage is out there for us to ingest still.
  • And then we’ll close with a couple videos, the first coming from Dread Sovereign, who have also dropped some new merch at their Bandcamp site! But most importantly, here’s a link to the video for “Her Master’s Voice”, taken from Alchemical Warfare, which is out now through Metal Blade.
  • And lastly we have the new music video from Demon Incarnate for “In Disguise”. That’s the first one from Leaves of Zaqqum, which is set for a June 18th release through Metalville Records. Enjoy.

CANTO: Wristmeetrazor, Artillery, Born of Osiris, and More

Fun fact: ciders aged in rye barrels are delicious.

  • Psychonaut and SÂVER have teamed up for a new split LP, titled Emerald. It will be out officially on May 14th through Pelagic Records, however pre-orders for what will be a highly sought-after album don’t start until April 6th.
  • Wristmeetrazor also dropped announced a new album announcement. Theirs is scheduled for a June 11th release through Prosthetic Records, and it will be titled Replica of a Strange Love. They released the first track from that album today, “Last Tango in Paris”, which you can check out at that same link.
  • Ok, only one more album announcement today. I promise. (No I don’t.) The latest from Artillery, simply titled X, will be out on May 7th through Metal Blade Records. I know this may come as a shock, but it’s their tenth full-length album. Check out the new single, “In Thrash We Trust”, right now.
  • Born of Osiris released a new single today, and that sounds like something good to close with. Check out the video for “White Nile”, available through Sumerian Records, immediately below.
