Welcome to another Saturday morning mixtape playlist from your friends at Nine Circles. This week, we’ve got new videos from Svalbard, Wristmeetrazor, The Lion’s Daughter, and a whole lot more. Plus, we have a smattering of St. Patrick’s Day appropriate content for you. Take a listen down below.
Losing L-G Petrov this week hurt like a mother fucker. If there ever was a champion of death metal and loving it, he was it. So, as we always do, let’s turn to music for some solace since there’s some exceptional albums to talk about this week. Do run out, after reading up, and buy all of the ones we chose to speak on and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent.
First off, RIP to L-G Petrov. Death metal will never be the same without this legendary soul. This is not the way any of us wanted to start a new week, but here we are. Again. Unfortunately. New metal: Taking the lead is SC’s blackened thrash maniacs Demiser with a debut full length that’s sure to be the breakout hit of 2021, Eyehategod is back after a long silence and yep, you guessed it, they’re still the undisputed kings of sludge metal, The Crown offer up one of my favorite albums since Deathrace King, and Domestikwom lay out a physical release of their outstanding EP full of experimental metal and noise. Get some.
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.
And finally, as I was saying, new Gojira is obviously the most important news of the day. Fortitude drops on April 30th, and can be pre-ordered here. Below you’ll find the clip for the new track, “Born For One Thing”, which brings all the riffs.
