Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
Leading off, good news from The Atlas Moth: in a new interview with Yr Album’s a Sucker, frontman Stavros Giannopoulos revealed that the band’s new album is 75% done. Oh, and it’ll be out on Prosthetic Records. So, that’s cool!
At this point in the year, metal shows are becoming a routine occurrence for most of us at Nine Circles. Which is great, because the experiences are always worth sharing. That in mind, Dan and I had were fortunate enough to attend the same show in each of our respective cities. We’ve been talking about The Atlas Moth tour with Vattnet Viskar most of the summer, and now it’s time to recap exactly how it went.
We’re going to do things a little differently, however. With Dan attending the August 25th show at St. Vitus and myself following up with the date at The Great Scott, we’ll be breaking this review up by band. Unfortunately, I had to duck out of The Atlas Moth’s set fairly early, so I’ll be covering Vattnet Viskar in full and leaving the headliner up to Dan. So, without further delay, let’s jump into it.
Wednesday’s here at last, and it’s finally time for us to do our Final Fours! Except not really. Sure, we’re recording our Final Fours tonight for Episode 33, but that won’t be over your way until Friday. Instead, you’ll get three more randomly selected non-Final Four entries from my Top 25 list, and you’ll like it. Or maybe you won’t, I don’t know. We’ll see.
Anyway…today, I’ll be talking about three more albums from three completely different backgrounds, because as I’ve already established, it’s fun to mix things up, sub-genre-wise. So that said, the three Top 25 entries I’ll be looking back on today are:
