chromewaveswherewelive

Been listening to A LOT of In Flames in recent days. Not gonna explain why just yet.

  • Chrome Waves, a project I caught onto after the release of A Grief Observed in 2018, just completed their second full-length. Where We Live will be out this coming September through Disorder Recordings. Here’s a teaser for those interested.
  • Satan has announced the upcoming release of Early Rituals, which will include a collection of their fully remastered demos. That will be available September 25th through Listenable Records.
  • Mörk Gryning also dropped a teaser for their upcoming new album, Hinsides Vrede, which drops on October 23rd through Season of Mist. Get an idea of what’s upcoming right here.
  • Bleed Someone Dry released a new lyric video today for “Mephistophelian”, which you can check out below. Unorthodox is available now through Wormholedeath / The Orchard.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 69 (03.02.2019)

playlist - mixtape

First off: NICE

Second: holy shit how am I alive right now.  I’ve been sick for pretty much this whole week and folks I gotta say, it’s not fun (although staying home from work has been very choice indeed).  Extreme thanks for picking up my duties this week goes out to my Nine Circles brethren, I’m thankful for the great friends I do this with, including our newest additions to the crew Marie and Charles.  Being sick doesn’t mean I’ve been off my music listening game, though, and neither have my cohorts, so check the link down below for the best of what we’ve been jamming.  We have such sights to show you.

Every now and then we might look back a week but for the most part we’ll try and keep it current and somewhat regular. That’s the plan anyway. Now, there will be bias because let’s face it: listening to 40-60 albums each week ain’t happening so we’ll be highlighting a select few that stood out for whatever reason. Almost like a grab bag of sorts. We don’t know how we’ll land on the albums we highlight, how many albums we will highlight, or who will be highlighting them… But we figure everyone likes a good mystery. So without further ado, let’s jump into a few from this week and don’t forget to check out the full listing from Monday’s Initial Descent. Continue reading
