Sometimes it takes something simple like, say…bullshitting with your friends over (virtual) drinks about a record to reignite your passion for something. Since starting these Album RAMBLES I’ve been listening to more metal than I have in ages, and In Flames in particular, so since I’m still so hot on new album Forgone we’re gonna bookend the 270th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist with the two parts of the title track.
But that’s not all (it never is, is it?): we’ve got some classic All Out War and Turbonegro (we don’t talk enough about Turbonegro) and then the walls come down with new cuts from Dawn of Ouroboros, Wallowing, Dying Fetus, Distant, Torn in Half, Insomnium, Stormo, Blaze of Sorrow, some old and cold Sacramentum, and more. We’ve also sprinkled in some lighter fare with cuts from Elliot Smith, Channing Wilson and midwife to give your nerves a small break.
Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week…
