CANTO: Tool, The Ocean, Heilung, and More

Alright, so this weekend may have been a smidge more aggressive than I originally anticipated. Oops.

  • I guess it only makes sense that we fall in line and start with the Tool tour announcement. There will be an extensive run of shows in both the U.S. and Europe the first half of 2022. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 1st, and I’m already intimidated by how much these tickets may go for.
  • Alright, let’s talk booze. Heilung have announced their signature beer and mead. For now, us in the U.S. can scoop up the beer here, which was created with brewery Nevel. I’m more intrigued by the mead, so I’ll stay tuned for now.
  • Bastarður, the crust punk project fronted by Aðalbjörn Tryggvason, released another new single from the upcoming new record, Satan’s Loss of Son. Check out “The Whispering Beast” right here. As a reminder, that album is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
  • And we’ll close with The Ocean, who shared the first clip from the upcoming release of Phanerozoic Live. Check out the clip for “Devonian: Nascent” below. That footage, of course, is from the streaming event performed in Bremen. The live album drops on November 26th.

CANTO: Vader, Tool, Allegaeon, and More

I mean, nothing else to do these days, right?

  • So here’s a fun thing. Allegaeon dropped of a cover of Yes’ classic “Roundabout”. You can watch/listen to it here. And if you want a behind-the-scenes look at how it came to be, that’s available here.
  • Tool officially announced the very-much-assumed postponement of their 2020 shows that weren’t already, well, postponed. If you want or need a full list of those dates, here it is.
  • Carcass have announced that the release of their next album, Torn Arteries, will be delayed. It was originally planned for an August release through Nuclear Blast, and no new timeline has been established yet.
  • Let’s close with a new music video from Vader. This one is for “Into Oblivion”, which is taken from the upcoming new album, Solitude In Madness. That is out May 1st through Nuclear Blast.

I was in the woods all weekend and now I’m not. Which is a way worse situation.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 95 (9.7.2019)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another Saturday.  This weekend is a busy one for me, but at least this time it’s because I have a bunch of fun things I’m doing instead of having to trudge in to work.  I’m still taking a second out of my morning to prepare, though, and there’s no better way to do it than with our weekly mixtape playlist.  This week I’m still pretty much just listening to Envy, Charles does me proud by throwing in my favorite Black Sabbath song, and Anton bumps the new Cattle Decapitation single.  Strap yourselves in folks, because this is a good one.
