One more day, and then this move into the mountains goes into full force.
Hard rock crew Saint Asonia have announced a new EP, titled Extrovert. That six-track collection will be out on November 18 through Spinefarm, and follows their Introvert EP from earlier this year. Give “Wolf” a listen here.
Out of the Season of Mist camp, Obsidious premiered a performance video of a new track titled “I Am”, with footage from Euroblast 2022. That’s taken from the progressive metallers upcoming debut album, Iconic, which drops tomorrow.
Closing out, we have the new video from melodic death metal outfit Wolfheart. Give “Knell” a watch and listen below, a track taken from King of the North. That album is out now through Napalm Records.
You know what it is. I’m too tired and too hung over to get a more pithy introduction out for the 249th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist, so let’s just get to the music, huh?
A lot of new music out this week, but I keep finding myself drawn back to the latest from Mork, who kill it with their raw, atmospheric black metal. We also have the debut from Sonja finally in our hands, and I may have more to say about that next week, pairing them off with the wicked retro thrash of Transgressive. We also have new music from Lorna Shore, Wolfheart, Trocar, the Anitchrist Imperium, Dream Unending, Woods of Desolation, AWS, Behemoth, and Psychonaut, not to mention a killer classic of post punk from Pink Turns Blue.
It’s amazing the crap we deal with on a day to day basis. Utterly amazing…pretty much all I’ve got for an opener AND it’s only Monday. Go figure. However, we’ve got some aggressive tunes to soothe the pain this week in the form of a destructive death metal debut from Tribal Gaze and yes this is the the same Tribal Gaze that put out that barnburner of an EP last year. Next up is a long awaited diesel fueled rock storm from Clutch, an extreme and obtuse outing from Destrage, a consistently METAL outing from Wolfheart, and a crap ton more in the list that follows. Do what you do best and go show all these bands some love via whatever purchasing outlet you land on. It’s as easy as copy / paste from here and the rest is history. Happy hunting and we’ll see you here throughout the week.
More Behemoth emerged today, yet another new video we’ll include here. Check out the video for “Thy Becoming Eternal”. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I suppose I will tomorrow. Opvs Contra Natvram is out on September 16th through Nuclear Blast.
From there, we have “Soul Furnace” from Black Lava, the title-track from their upcoming new album. That debut full-length effort from the blackened death metal crew will be out on November 25th through Season of Mist.
There’s some cool stuff coming out of Napalm Records these days, so we’ll wrap up with another new track and video from that label. Wolfheart is releasing King of the North on September 16th, and the second single, titled “The King”, is available below.
