playlist - mixtape

Hello and welcome again to another Saturday morning mixtape. This week, we have the excellent new single from Gojira, my favorite Sad Boy Jams, and quite a bit more metalcore than we’ve had on here in a while. Check it out below.

CANTO: Gojira, Behemoth, The Crown, and More

Pretty much… over it. But, hey, we get new Gojira soon! As well as some new videos. What is it, Friday?

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 164 (1.16.2020)

playlist - mixtape

Clock on the wall says 1am and unsurprisingly cracking a bottle of Henry McKenna 10yr bourbon just feels right as I sample the picks we’ve assembled for this week’s playlist. Don’t judge me, no work tomorrow and after 40+ years of practice my eyes will open no later than 5am so put that in your pipe and smoke it. Anyway, we’ve got a stacked mixtape for this glorious Saturday and I’ve confirmed it’s, as they say, a banger. I bring some new Bloody Hammers and The Crown, Vince brings The Ruins of Beverast and Havukruunu, Didrik lays down a killer Woods of Ypres pick along with new Soen, Ian offers up a Møl cut and an Aara track, and Angela keeps the livestream Goatwhore feels alive as well as a selection from Divide and Dissolve. All that and a ton more awaits behind the play button below, so get after it.

CANTO: Tombs, The Crown, Solbrud, and More

I think I’ve already given up working for the week.

  • Tombs has announced a live stream event, scheduled for February 5th at 3:00 PM EST. Furthermore, it will be premiered through Bandcamp, the first such event to use the platform. You’ll be able to get tickets, merch, and all that fun stuff here… eventually.
  • The Crown are returning in 2021 with a new album. Set for a March 12th release, Royal Destroyer will be available through Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available here, as well as the new single “Motordeath”.
  • The Sword have also returned with a new track, kind of. It’s a live performance of “The Warp Riders”, taking from the 2010 album, Warp Riders. It was recorded as part of their Conquest of Quarantine lockdown sessions. Give it a watch right here.
  • Solbrud are releasing an audio/visual live album on Marth 26th through Eisenwald, titled Levende I Brønshøj Vandtårn. If you want to end your day with some pretty wild black metal, check out this clip for “Øde Lagt” below.

CANTO: Cradle of Filth, The Crown, Astronoid, and Dead

I bought a lot of sharp objects today. That is all.

  • Cradle of Filth announced the second leg of their “Cryptoriana” tour. Well, specifically called “Cryptoriana – The Second Coming Of Vice World Tour 2019”. So jump on that if it rolls through your town. Tickets go on sale Friday.
  • The Crown are releasing reissues of Crowned In Terror, Crowned Unholy, and Possessed 13. They’ll be out January 11th for those interested.
  • Oh, this is probably worth mentioning. Interested in owning a piece of black metal history? Well, a fragment of Dead’s skull can be yours for a slim $3,500.00. Yes, you can literally own a piece of the deceased Mayhem vocalist (accompanied by a letter from Euronymous dated in 1991, five days after Dead’s suicide). Crazy and WEIRD.
  • Big news from Astronoid today. Their second, self-titled, full length album will be out February 1st through Blood Music. You can catch them on tour early next year with Between The Buried and Me and Tesseract. For now, however, you can check out a new song called “I Dream In Lines.”
