It’s raining again today. And yes, I am just fine with that.
Sepultura have announced the rescheduled dates for the Quadra tour (finally). The new dates are scheduled for March 4th through April 9th, with support in the form of Sacred Reich, Crowbar, and Art of Shock. Legit, this tour should be a ton of fun. Get your tickets here.
Let’s toss in another tour, yeah? This one features Frozen Soul and Sanguisugabogg, as well as Inoculation and Vomit Forth. Those dates are a little sooner, spanning October 27th through December 12th. Personally, I’m going to prioritize this one a bit more. Tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
Swedish progressive metal sounds fun, so we’ll close with the new video from Loch Vostok for “Enter the Resistance”. That track is taken from Opus Ferox – The Great Escape, which is officially out today apparently.
Saturday. Finally. What a shit week. No matter though as we’re back with our mixtape of stuff we’ve been jamming this week and guaranteed there’s something here that’ll fit whatever you have going on today. We’ve got some newish Sanguisugabogg, fresh Thy Catafalque and tons of Suidakra, a demo track from Crypticus, a slappin’ death metal beast from Diabolizer, Kataan, Withered, and many more. Basically the perfect playlist to massacre some lawns with or light up an early party with, or just…whatever the hell you have on tap. Good times. Let them roll via the play button below.
I know, you’ve come here in hopes of some diatribe about how my 2019 sucked ass or how I loathed a lot of stuff this year. But, if that’s what you came for look elsewhere. 2019 has been a good year for me on many fronts. My family continually prove to me that true beauty does exist, I have a great job that was extremely busy all year, I got to speak with a few bands I truly adore, I trimmed social media, I kept up with those who matter, and those who matter kept up with me. Oh, almost forgot, amazing bourbon was had along the way and we found a new local brewery with a top shelf IPA. One thing that hasn’t changed is the impact music has on my life and this list, my list, encompasses what raised the hair on the back of my neck. Buckle up buttercup.Continue reading →
Welcome one, welcome all to another Saturday morning, and another edition of our weekly mixtape, made just for you. This week we’ve got new jams from Caïna (YES), Alcest (FUCK YES), Josh brings a slew of good death metal to the table, and I finally listened to The Cowboy Album ™ and found it…pretty good honestly. Get your weekend started at the play button below.
Death metal has seen a banner year. And, it’s seen a year that clearly divided the genre into swampy caveman ooze and extreme for the sake of extreme. Basically, whatever is your preference is out there and your favorite album awaits. This is the year for death metal fans and that’s the bottom line. Yes, I do realize we’re closing in on EOY season but for us, all that fun is held until, you know, the end of the year so why not broach some of the good shit now? Rhetorical, of course. As a reminder, last time we did this was for black metal and it was a silver platter of offerings so be sure to revisit that. Moving on, we do have rules for this piece. I hate rules. But, the only one for this Nine Circles ov… is that anything covered here can only be albums we haven’t covered in long form which leaves out Vitriol, Fluids, Tomb Mold, and several other holy-hell-top-notch albums. Be that as it may, there’s tons here to dig into from 2019 so get your shovel and dig until you hit the coffins. Continue reading →
