CANTO: Origin, Yob, Hexvessel, and More

Yob.4.3.19.41

Why doesn’t it feel like the weekend?

  • Couple tours to throw at you today. The first features Origin, who will be cruising around North America with Beneath The Massacre, Wake, and Defeated Sanity. Those dates run through March and early April.
  • The next tour comes from Yob, who not only announced some west coast and European dates in March and May, but also an appearance at Fire In The Mountains. Man, really wish I could go this year. Maybe 2021.
  • Hexvessel dropped the first single from their upcoming album. Kindred isn’t out until March 20th (on Svart Records), but “Demian” can be streamed right now.
  • Lastly, because this seems like a fun thing for a Friday, here is a new video from Macabre for “The Ted Bundy Song”. For those that may not remember, that was a track from 1993’s Sinister Slaughter. Their entire discography is now available digitally, which is why they are celebrating with this throwback. Fun!

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 105 (11.16.2019)

playlist - mixtape

Good morning all.  Welcome to another Saturday mixtape session.  This week, your resident screamo buff loses his mind over both new envy and new Loma Prieta (!!!!!), our newest staff member throws in one of Yob’s finest cuts (and check out her review of the new Tribulation live album if you haven’t already), and Chris reminds me that I need to be listening to more Voivod always.  If you’re looking for something new to jam, there’s something for just about everyone here, so grab some headphones and a strong morning beverage and check out what we’ve been listening to down below.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 100

playlist - mixtape

Well folks, this is it. The 100th edition of our weekly mixtape. This week, we’re kicking things off with the trippy new video for Blood Incantation’s new single (!!!) plus live footage of another song off the upcoming Hidden Histories of the Human Race. I’m still waaaay deep in my screamo binge, and Josh reps my local boys in Teeth, who you should all be listening to way more than you currently are. Thanks a ton for checking this out enough to keep it going this long. We appreciate the hell out of ALL of you.

Now, let’s party.

Concert Review: Yob, Voivod, and Amenra, 4.3.2019

yobtourdec18

You may recall my absolute mess of thoughts and words from three weeks ago, where I talked about a couple shows I attended at the end of March. Well, we’ve finally reached the second phase of my 2019 concert review installment thingy. (I skipped the first shows I went to for some reason.) Based on the headline above, you might think this little piece only discusses one evening of metal. But oh how wrong you would be. Well, actually only a little wrong. You see, not only was I fortunate enough to attend the Yob, Voivod, and Amenra show at the Royale on the 3rd, but I also had the opportunity to checkout the Portland date of this tour at Geno’s the night before. Let’s talk about those two nights, yeah?
