The Nine Circles Podcast: Episode 2 (May 29, 2015)

nine circles logo podcast

We’re back for our second full episode! Actually, that’s only partially true; we’re still very much recovering from MDF weekend. I guess you could say we’re…mostly back for our second full episode! And we jump back in with a bang, covering news from Soilwork and Neurosis, as well as some overdue discussion on new releases from Faith No More and Drudkh. (Our man from Holland, Jesse Dolman, joins us to discuss the latter and also shares some exciting news on his website, Black Ivory Tower!)

All that and much more in this week’s episode, so check it out!

The 2014 World Cup of Metal: Knockout Stages

Welcome back, everyone! Two weeks gone, and the actual World Cup is getting ready to move into the knockout stages–which means it’s time for us to do the same here with the World Cup of Metal!

JermaineAnselmo

Here are our knockout-round match-ups:

  • Brazil: Sepultura – “Refuse/Resist”
  • Chile: Necrosis – “Hidden Enemy”
  • Colombia: Agony – “Die Alone”
  • Uruguay: Upon Shadows – “Alchemy of Suffering”
  • Netherlands: Epica – “Never Enough”
  • Mexico: Brujeria – “Brujerizmo”
  • Costa Rica: Sight of Emptiness – “Essence”
  • Greece: Septicflesh – “Order of Dracul”
  • France: Gojira – “Flying Whales”
  • Nigeria: (no known metal bands, thus “Hey Africa!“)
  • Germany: Rammstein – “Du Hast”
  • Algeria: Barbaros – “Old Shadows”
  • Argentina: Auvernia – “Blue Blood”
  • Switzerland: Celtic Frost – “Circle of the Tyrants”
  • Belgium: Aborted – “Coffin Upon Coffin”
  • USA: Pantera – “Cowboys From Hell”

The actual competition’s on a rest day today, but will start right back up tomorrow with Brazil-Chile and Colombia-Uruguay. Or, as we’d say it, with Sepultura-Necrosis and Agony-Upon Shadows. In the meantime, here’s an updated Spotify playlist (Minus “Hey Africa,” because that’s not a thing you can actually Spotify. Sorry, Nigeria–get some damn metal going!):

This will probably be the last update for a while, as we don’t really see a point to making 8- 4- and 2-song playlists going into the later stages, but you can bet we’ll be keeping you up to date on our Twitter page. Just follow #WorldCupofMetal and you should see our updates. Until then, keep it heavy!
