What a week. There’s so much behind that, I can’t even. But, it’s Saturday now and time to put that in the rearview. It’s also time for our weekly mixtape (playlist for you young bucks) of tunes we’ve been jamming ’round the back office. Corey drops some classic Emperor and a long cut from Unreqvited, Ian brings a Deeds tribute track from Defeated Sanity and a banger from Dying Fetus, Zyklonius offers up a Cult of Luna track, Vince has a new ERR + Thou cut, Angela goes in varying directions with SEA and Russian Circles, and I drop the new ones from Eyehategod, Every Time I Die and Grave Gnosis. All that and a ton more is hiding right under that play button below so hit that and do whatever you do on a Saturday. See you back here soon.
What, you don’t come here for the politics? Too fuckin’ bad. This is my house. Two things make me happy: people in the streets, and music. I can’t be in the streets due to health reasons, but I can sure as shit find and share music. So that’s what I’m doing.
Well friends, this may be it, with nothing to do but sit at home and listen to tunes while the world dies around us. So for the three of you (or less) who actually listens to these: I salute you, and deliver unto you the soundtrack to our apocalypse. Not much else to say, I just hope there’s still people to write for next month.
Ambient synth and soundscapes from Unreqvited’s latest EP starts us off, and leads seamlessly into Jaern’s stoner doom. Then we crank it up with some excellent tech death courtesy of Xenobiotic, which flows into the intense blackened melodic death of KVAEN. Sons of a Wanted Man follow with wonderful blackgaze chased by the experimental synths and sludgy black metal of Tombs. Speeding it up, we have riffy prog from the new Intronaut, and then we wrap with a couple of atmoblack tracks from Skyforest and Cult of Fire respectively. Continue reading →
Welcome to another Saturday mixtape series. This week, Josh has you covered with all the new death metal singles dropped this week plus Wailin’ Storms’ gothy noise rock for good measure, Ian drops a few names I haven’t thought about in a hot minute, and I will be providing you with the 14 minute bummer jams as my brand dictates. Turn on, tune in, and drop out at the link below.
Welcome back friends, how is 2020 treating you? Canada is sicking their federal dogs on indigenous protesters and a new coronavirus has infected tens of thousands globally. Are you feeling the doom? I’m feeling the doom. And so is January’s Third Circle.
