Profile: Bogotá, Colombia’s AIRE Como Plomo

AIRE Como Plomo mix an amalgam of thrash, death metal, and hardcore punk that is as abrasive and violent as it is catchy as hell. They have one full length and a handful of singles available, the most recent of which “Erase The One” may be their best yet. Which begs the question as to when we’ll get the next full length and for now, the answer is mysterious but we recently posed out set of Profile questions to the band and they fired back to give us some backstory on the band and why they do what they do. With that said, head directly below to read how it went down and be sure to pick up all their stuff from the links contained within. And, play it loud.

The Nine Circles Audio Thing: Goatwhore was October 2022’s Album of the Month!

Album of the Month time again and for October the winner was Goatwhore’s eighth album Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven. The usual gang of suspects join in along with our main man on the mic Buke leading the charge. The gang spends time covering how bad ass this album is as well as the band’s past and their road to the present. Elsewhere, the gang spends a good portion of the runtime gushing over everything else they listened to since they last spoke. That and the usual banter back and forth on literally anything and everything.

In other words, just another episode of the Nine Circles Audio Thing.

Premiere: Laces Out — “Shooter”

Laces Out - Here At The Ashram

New York’s Laces Out describe their brand of post-hardcore and noise rock as “sounds like licking dirt with tiny granules of sugar scattered throughout.” Even with a magic cloak of wordsmithing wizardry we couldn’t describe it better. After furiously writing new tunes throughout the cursed pandemic and on the backside of July’s EP release, Roger Podacter, the band are on the cusp of releasing their full length debut, Here At The Ashram via Nefarious Industries. You’ll have to wait until next week for that but today Nine Circles is proud to bring you the premiere of “Shooter.” Head directly below to check it out.

Profile: José Fernando Ospina of The Scum

The Scum

The Scum, based out of Colombia, released their second full length, The Hunger, back in April of this year and it’s a savage ode to the old school days when bands like Deicide, Massacre, and Morbid Angel were cutting their teeth. If you’re a fan of the genre, their lyrical themes will not disappoint as they cover horror, wicked nightmares, death, and gore. So basically, a death metal fan’s wet dream. We recently posed our set of Profile questions to vocalist José Fernando Ospina to get some backstory on him and the band so head below to read how it went down and be sure to pick up a copy from the links contained within.

The Nine Circles Audio Thing: Bloodbath was September 2022’s Album of the Month!

Once again it’s Album of the Month time and for September it was pretty much unanimous that Survival Of The Sickest from Sweden’s death metal masters Bloodbath got the pick. The usual gang of suspects are present for the discussion as well as MC Supreme Buke leading the charge. Much is made of just how good Bloodbath are this far along in their career and how they still reign supreme in any discussion surrounding Swedeath. Elsewhere, the gang spends a good portion of the runtime gushing over everything else they listened to since they last spoke. That and the usual banter back and forth on literally anything and everything.

In other words, just another episode of the Nine Circles Audio Thing.
