Hey everyone,

So now that Horns Up has officially relaunched as Nine Circles—and now that we’re only a few days from formally reopening for business—we wanted to take the opportunity to throw something important out there:

Nine Circles is looking to add some new contributors to our staff.

You may remember a similar call we did back at the start of the year—and here’s the thing: even after re-launch, we’ve still got some room to grow! Got an eye for the day’s biggest metal news? We want you. What about a strong voice and something to say about the latest new releases each week? Yep—we want you, too. Or what if you’ve got an idea for a completely different segment we haven’t thought of yet, but that will kick the Internet’s ass six ways to Sunday? Get over here.

Want more specifics? Here’s what we’re looking for:

The Horns Up Podcast: Episode 44 (March 21, 2015)

It’s time for Episode 44 of The Horns Up Podcast, your weekly catch-up on all things metal!

This week, the guys say “fuck it” and do it LIVE! From New York City. Corey’s in town for Enslaved / YOB (keep an eye out for that in our next episode) but before they give that a spin, here are some less coherent ramblings. New album chats on Moonspell, Devathorn and Dødheimsgard, a discussion of Megadeth’s still-not-yet-confirmed new lineup, and an all-out failure to press the Inception button. What’s that mean? You’ll have to listen!

All that and much, much more in Episode 44, so check it out!

New Blogger Alert–Welcome Josh and Jesse!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day, all! How’s everyone getting down today—beer? Jameson? Both?

Well, we here at Horns Up are celebrating today with two more additions to our team! For those keeping score at home, that brings us up to six team members—otherwise known as the point at which politicians start citing our blogging family as grounds for either welfare or abstinence-only sex education, depending on your side. Either way, exciting stuff!

So without any further ado, we’re pleased to introduce our newest contributors: Josh Stewart and Jesse Dolman! Here’s a bit more about both of these dapper gents in their own words:

It’s time for Episode 42 of The Horns Up Podcast, your weekly catch-up on all things metal!

This week, the guys ponder their existence in a world in which a Kid Rock album debuts at No. 2. In 2015. Because honestly, what the hell kind of world is THAT? Plus, new albums from Leviathan, Sannhet, Helrunar and A Forest of Stars, some Detroit and Cleveland jokes, and a discussion of Dan’s stupid face!

All that and much, much more in Episode 42, so check it out!
