CANTO: Vader, Tool, Allegaeon, and More

tool 2019

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.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 94 (8.31.2019)

We’re back again folks.  I don’t have much to say except that I’m grateful again for my colleagues and friends who pick up my weekly column when life gets in the way (go check out Corey’s Evcharist from this past week and witness his return to the throne).  This week has had some pretty amazing highs and some pretty serious lows but I’m grateful for the music that’s allowed me to hit the pause button on life along the way.  You’ll find some of our favorite stuff here that we’ve been jamming the last week, as usual, irrelevant of genre and release date constraints.  Just an honest look at what we here listen to in our down time.  Take a look and a listen below, and thanks for checking it out.
