The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 122 (3.28.2020)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another Saturday morning playlist. We live in weird times but great new music is still here to carry us through. Case in point, this week I’ve brought you the newest one from The Ruins of Beverast and Ulcerate (Stare Into Death and Be Still is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated albums by our staff). Anton also brings in the new one from Aversio Humanitatis, which is another album I’m hotly anticipating. And for something a little different, we are including ‘Slaves to the Grind,’ a documentary about the grindcore scene at the end of the playlist. So check out the tunes and get some culture in you, all at the link below.
