Nine Circles ov…Consuming Metal in Isolation

quarantine

Being into metal can be isolating enough…I remember as a kid in in high school (this would be circa 1990?) having to do a social studies project where kids would sing songs with social or political relevance.  I can’t tell you how many kids did Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire.”

Me?  I did Testament’s “Greenhouse Effect.”  Being isolated wasn’t a problem after that.

This, of course, is something different. Continue reading

CANTO: Eluveitie, Oranssi Pazuzu, Sepultura, and More

Back to the mountains.

  • Eluveitie have announced a fall North American tour. Those dates aren’t until late September, and I don’t know who else is joining them, but at least we know it’s happening!
  • Oranssi Pazuzu news is always good news. Their next album, Mestarin kynsi, will be out on April 17th through Nuclear Blast. Here is a link to an album trailer if you felt the need for one.
  • Misery Index have premiered a mini-documentary called History Is Rotten, as they kick off their European tour tonight. You can check out the whole documentary here if you have about ten minutes to kill.
  • The latest from Sepultura, Quadra, dropped today through, well, also Nuclear Blast. We can celebrate by checking out the new music video for “Means To An End”. I’ve heard this album is a good one. I should dabble eventually.

CANTO: Weedeater, Abbath, Sepultura, and More

This has been a long, yet productive, week. Let’s keep it rolling.

  • Let’s start with a tour. Weedeater have announced some North American headlining dates. Those are in March (well, aside from the 2/29 date in Asheville), and support will be in the form of The Goddamn Gallows.
  • As Abbath prepares for his band’s upcoming European tour, he took a couple minutes to share this message. Sounds like he’s a couple months sober, which is great. But he also isn’t in corpse paint, which threw me off for a second. Either way, great update indeed!
  • Sepultura are releasing Quadra on February 7th through Nuclear Blast, if you weren’t previously aware. If you’re anticipating this record like I am, this album trailer might be of interest to you.
  • Here’s a new lyric video from Queensrÿche for “Inner Unrest”. That one was taken from The Verdict, which dropped last March on Century Media Records.
