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.

CANTO: Saint Vitus, Deafheaven, Northwest Terror Fest, and More


I should do my taxes eventually…

  • Saint Vitus dropped a new track today called “12 Years In The Tomb”. Their self-titled album will drop on May 17th. This doesn’t apply to me, but they’ve got some shows in Europe coming up soon as well.
  • You know who else dropped a new song today? Deafheaven. It’s called “Black Brick” and holy shit do I enjoy it. It’s like… super heavy and stuff. These guys are the freaking best.
  • The full Northwest Terror Fest lineup has been announced. The festival takes place in Seattle from May 30th to June 1st. I could list off some notable names here, but the reality is that most of them kick ass and I’m jealous I can’t go. So here’s a link to tickets and info instead.
  • Aaaaand a music video from The Three Tremors for “Bullets For The Damned”, just in case you were looking for some excessively entertaining/hilarious heavy metal.

Best of 2018: Corey’s List

EOY 2018 Header 9C

Ah, yes. Here we are again. Yet another journey around the sun has given us reason to pause and reflect on how lucky we are to have, almost literally, an indefinite source of music and art to appreciate at any moment in time. In this case, the musical form known as heavy metal. Yes, even in our very defined place in the artistic world, there is an unending wave of inspired music that we endlessly celebrate, together, across the globe. Except… wait, metal internet is basically the worst and ruins everything, doesn’t it? Nevermind. Continue reading
