Psyclon Nine — “Behind a Serrated Grin,” from the album INRI (2005).
I discovered Psyclon Nine many moons ago, while I was in college. I used to listen to “Inri” and “Behind a Serrated Grin” every day while doing schoolwork.
Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet front man Nero Bellum, who is on tour with Sköld. With any luck, I will be seeing Psyclon Nine in October. (Fingers crossed!)
Anyway, I decided to feature Psyclon Nine because they’ve been on my mind since the Sköld show, and my album of the week is 2009’s We the Fallen.
Avenged Sevenfold — “The Wicked End”
In This Moment — “Witching Hour”
