Probably the last one this week, let’s be real.
- Electric Wizard have announced a brief run of shows with Midnight in the eastern area of the U.S. Those dates are in November, and sadly I am not in town for the date closest to me. Booooooo
- Bask revealing a whole lot of stuff today. Most importantly, their third full length album (Bask III), and first through Season of Mist, will be out on November 8th. Better yet, we also get some new material. Check out the video for “New Dominion” right now.
- I enjoy Exhorder. And Exhorder just dropped a new album trailer where they talk about some of the topics on the upcoming new album, Mourn the Southern Skies. It’s out on September 20th. BRB gonna watch this real quick…
- Bloodbather, not to be confused with Bloodbath, have recently signed on to Rise Records. Naturally, they are working on new material, and while we don’t have anything to share just yet, you can take a look at the new video for the re-released track called “End”.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
Its been a long time since I posted anything for Nine Circles. Of all the things 2017 has been for me, it has definitely been the busiest I’ve ever been.

Anyway, we have another fantastic playlist in store for you featuring, as usual, a broad spectrum of artists and genres. Think of this as your Tuesday pick me up, or whatever.
