The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 25 (1.15.2018)

NINE-CIRCLES_LOGO-Light Background_SQUARE

Fifteen days into 2018 and I’m already blown away by metal’s new releases and equally blown away by what’s to come. It was a busy weekend that was surrounded by a handful of these albums and by last night it hit me that I hadn’t listened to the same album twice (well, I did listen to that Pillärs album more than once). Yea, 2018 looks to rule, hard. Anyway, I need a weekend to rest from my weekend but bills and food and stuff, tough luck and back to work. Moving on, we’ve got another tasty playlist for you that should help wipe the cobwebs away so hit the play button below and don’t forget to keep up with us on YouTube right here. Continue reading

    Throwback Thursday: Market Square Day and Dio, v. 2016

    dioportsmouth

    Remember last year (or maybe two years ago?) when I used Market Square Day as a reason to talk about Dio? Well, that time is here again. A few key pieces of background information: 1. I live in Portsmouth, NH — the best small city on the god damn planet. And that’s partly because 2. Dio was born here. Finally, 3. This coming Saturday is Market Square Day. So what better opportunity is there to talk about all of the above than the present? Continue reading
