The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 234 (6.4.2022)

When this comes out I’ll be 49 fucking years old. One goddamn year away from being half a century old. I haven’t been listening to metal for quite as long, but it’s close, you know? I gave quite a bit of thought about simply punting the playlist picks and just forcing all my favorite music down your throats. But I suppose age begets some kind of patience and humility, and besides…I’ll be doing that to my family all day. So maybe I’ll just sprinkle some aggressive favorites throughout and let you suss out which ones they are in this, the 234th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist.

I’m not going to do the usual gang of idiots round up (that’s a reference to Mad Magazine, the crew here all rule); but I’ll mention that folks seems to be pretty hot on new music from Artificial Brain, Gwar, Amon Amarth, Benighted and Origin. Find that inside plus a ton more music to get your weekend in the proper gear ratio.

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

Back to the mountains.

  • Eluveitie have announced a fall North American tour. Those dates aren’t until late September, and I don’t know who else is joining them, but at least we know it’s happening!
  • Oranssi Pazuzu news is always good news. Their next album, Mestarin kynsi, will be out on April 17th through Nuclear Blast. Here is a link to an album trailer if you felt the need for one.
  • Misery Index have premiered a mini-documentary called History Is Rotten, as they kick off their European tour tonight. You can check out the whole documentary here if you have about ten minutes to kill.
  • The latest from Sepultura, Quadra, dropped today through, well, also Nuclear Blast. We can celebrate by checking out the new music video for “Means To An End”. I’ve heard this album is a good one. I should dabble eventually.

Sorry, it’s been a slow day and I’m in a rush.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

The second installment, Evocation II: Pantheon, drops August 18 on Nuclear Blast, about six years after everyone stopped caring.
