The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 125 (4.18.2020)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another edition of our weekly mixtape.  On this mix, we’ve got a fair amount of variance coming at you, with tech-death from Ian, noise rock from Jon, all the new death metal picks from Josh, and screamo from…well, who else?  You’ll find something to your taste here, so why not check these, and more, out at the link below?  It’d kinda be rude not to at this point.

Nine Circles ov…Death Metal in 2019

Sanguisugabogg

Death metal has seen a banner year. And, it’s seen a year that clearly divided the genre into swampy caveman ooze and extreme for the sake of extreme. Basically, whatever is your preference is out there and your favorite album awaits. This is the year for death metal fans and that’s the bottom line. Yes, I do realize we’re closing in on EOY season but for us, all that fun is held until, you know, the end of the year so why not broach some of the good shit now? Rhetorical, of course. As a reminder, last time we did this was for black metal and it was a silver platter of offerings so be sure to revisit that. Moving on, we do have rules for this piece. I hate rules. But, the only one for this Nine Circles ov… is that anything covered here can only be albums we haven’t covered in long form which leaves out Vitriol, Fluids, Tomb Mold, and several other holy-hell-top-notch albums. Be that as it may, there’s tons here to dig into from 2019 so get your shovel and dig until you hit the coffins.

“Life is your consciousness as you tame your wild beasts, when exhaustion is the currency that you must pay for sleep.”

I’ve decided to start introducing Canto with lyrics from whatever song I’m listening to as I compile these. I’m running out of witty bullshit to say every night. You get to guess the song.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”

I went home early from work today because of the 2ish inches of snow we’ve seen so far. Needless to say, productivity plummeted. Alas, we’ll get ’em next time. Now, let’s see what the metal world is up to.
