Initial Descent: October 23 – 29, 2022

Worm

First off, big thanks to brother Chris for holding it down for me last week here on Initial Descent. He brought the fire then, and I’m bringing it now. We’ve got the goods to help you get into the Halloween mood with a soul crushing outing from Worm, the next epic step from legendary black metallers Darkthrone, some absolutely extreme deathgrind from Psionic Madness, a rip roaring riff ride from Psychonaut, and a lengthy list of metal for every taste below these top four. So come one, come all and happy hunting. See you here throughout the week.

CANTO: Black Anvil, Ingested, Judicator, and More

This week, much like last week, can go right in the fucking shredder.

  • Ingested are releasing Ashes Lie Still on November 4th through Metal Blade, and today they unveiled the video for “Tides of Glass”. It’s awesome. Be sure to catch them on tour with Lorna Shore this coming October and November.
  • Going in a bit of a different direction, Judicator have announced details surrounding their new album. The Majesty of Decay is set for a November 25th release through Prosthetic Records. The lead single, “The High Priestess”, is streaming over at Metal Injection.
  • Florida black/doom metal collective Worm are releasing a new EP on October 28th through 20 Buck Spin, titled Bluenothing. I really enjoyed Foreverglade from last year, so yes I’m excited about this. Anyway, here’s a teaser for ya.
  • We’re going to close the day, and maybe my week, with the second track from Black Anvil off of Regenesis. This one is titled “8 Bit Terror”, and you can see the video for it below. For what it’s worth, I enjoy this track much more than the last offering. That album drops on November 4th through Season of Mist.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 220 (2.26.2022)

playlist - mixtape

Say goodbye, February. I wish I could say goodbye to the panic, the anxiety, and the fear as well, but tyrants are gonna tyrant, I guess. At least there’s music to keep us from falling over the brink, so let’s just jump into the 220th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist, and do what we can to stay informed, stay sane, and make what small differences we can to make this planet better for everyone.

I’m framing the playlist out with some Scatterbrain, because that describes my mental state at the moment and quite frankly it’s the music I needed to lighten the mood up. Anton brings in Ernia, Mass Worship, and Playgrounded. Josh mixes it up with Analepsy, Atoll, Black Flag and some vintage Dokken, among others. Vincent continues falling for Mitski and toe, but also rages with Worm and the new Falls of Rauros. Angela features the latest from Messa, Celeste, and Trna as well as a banger from Oathbreaker. And Buke? Buke goes with the latest from Spirit Adrift and Evil Invaders, but then hits the wayback button for some Candlemass, Dark Angel, Mercyful Fate, and Megadeth.

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

Receiving the Evcharist: Worm and Breakaway Beerworks

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Receiving the Evcharist is our weekly feature where I don’t just talk about a new metal album, I also consume and talk about alcohol! Sometimes they pair up nicely, sometime they don’t. My cup of heresy runneth over this week with: Foreverglade from Worm and Ukiyo from Breakaway Beerworks.
