NINE-CIRCLES_LOGO-Light Background_SQUARE

We, well…most of us, made it through another New Year’s Eve and I’d love to regale you with tall tales regarding last night but let’s just say I’d rather have that one back with a different set of circumstances. Anyway, here we are, freshly minting a new year where the metal slate is clean for all comers. I’m expecting big things this year out of metal and you should be too, seek out what you love and challenge your listening habits. But for now we have our playlist full of things that were in our rotation from last week. Subscribe here, grab some coffee, and head inside to have a listen. And if you do nothing else today please take a minute to call a loved one or a friend and tell them how much they mean to you, we aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. Continue reading

Donuts & CANTO: Full of Hell, Alestorm, Deicide and more

Full of Hell

March 13, 2017

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from over the weekend:

  • As is customary, a whole bunch of bands dropped new albums this past Friday, including Lock UpFen and more. Our man Josh has a full breakdown here.
  • We’ve still got a couple of months until the new Full of Hell album comes out, but in case you need that “just got fed through a lawnmower” feeling in your life a little sooner than that, here’s their new song, “Deluminate.”
  • Scottish pirate metal crew Alestorm announced their fifth albumNo Grave But the Sea, due out May 26 on Napalm Records. I don’t see a Taio Cruz cover this time out, but there is a song called “Fucked with an Anchor,” so…
  • Deicide announced a short run of tour dates through the eastern U.S. for mid-May. You know, just in case people still care about Deicide.
  • A whole bunch of cool bands were added to this year’s Brutal Assault festival lineup, including The Dillinger Escape PlanOverkillPower Trip and Oathbreaker. That is neat. Hatebreed was also added to the lineup. That is less neat.
  • Southern Lord Records released their Spring 2017 sampler on Bandcamp, with all proceeds from the pay-what-you-want download going to the ACLU. You should get on that.
  • Finally, Me and That Man posted a video for their new song, “Cross My Heart and Hope to Die.” I can personally guarantee our Literati Overlord has already splooged about 10x to this. Here’s the video:

Me and That Man’s debut album, Songs of Love and Death, comes out March 24 on Cooking Vinyl Records. That’ll do it for now, but check back this time tomorrow for our next edition!

Keep it heavy,

“I can’t feel my bones, the blood has all dried up. I am caught in-between. I can’t feel my bones, the blood has all dried up. I’m not even dead.”

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

“Hence I will anoint and whisper wholeheartedly the creed of Hades and beyond, as I succumb to inevitable sin. For I cannot enslave myself with imaginary words of salvation. The hypocrisy that surrounds my temple is assisted by pretenders to the throne.”

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
– Corey

CANTO: Slayer bikes and a whole lot of album announcements

“Build my fear of what’s out there and cannot breathe the open air. Whisper things into my brain assuring me that I’m insane.”

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
