The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 39 (4.30.2018)

NINE-CIRCLES_LOGO-Light Background_SQUARE

Death, black, sludge, grind, doom, powerviolence, post, punk, hardcore, d-beat, noise — it’s all extreme and it’s all metal, in one form or another. I’ve never gotten the hullabaloo over who’s more kvlt or extreme or METAL. And honestly I don’t care if it hits that particular itch for me. Bottom line, don’t close yourself off narrow-mindedly —  experiment and let yourself go a bit, if not you will miss some really amazing stuff. Anyway, we’ve got another loaded playlist for you to kick off a new week with. Head over to our YouTube channel and subscribe then click that play button immediately below to get your fill of what we were listening to last week. Coffee cheers and we’ll be seeing you, here, throughout the week. Continue reading
