Greetings once again, y’all. As another week comes to a close, we’ve got another batch of killer songs that we’ve been listening to in our free time to share with you. It’s a crazy time of year for music listening; there’s a push to finish out the year listening to all the albums still coming out in the next three weeks while also going back over everything that came out earlier in the year to flesh out those year-end lists we all love to read (and yell about) so much. For now, forget about deadlines and distractions, and enjoy our weekly present to you. Catch you next week.
Welcome back, y’all. Sure has been a week, hasn’t it? Hopefully the week you all have been having has been better than mine, but we’ve officially passed through the tunnel into the light, and I’m grateful to have our little mixtape here to dig into to get my weekend soundtrack set up the right way.
On a more somber note, we here at Nine Circles were very saddened to hear about the passing of Unique Leader Records founder and Deeds of Flesh guitarist Erik Lindmark. Unique Leader are a force to be reckoned with in the world of death metal, giving a home to many of the most lauded and recognizable names in the worlds of technical and brutal death metal, and Erik’s work with Deeds of Flesh helped champion the sound that these bands would continue to shape to this day. We have included several choice cuts from both Deeds of Flesh and other bands on the Unique Leader roster as a way to celebrate the memory of this giant of the scene. If you are able to lend support to the family, a GoFundMe has been set up (right here) to benefit Erik’s wife and 5 year old daughter. Our condolences go out to his family, friends, and fans around the globe. Rest in Peace.
Hey, I’m doing these again! So exciting. I can’t wait to see the look on Chris’ face.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
A variety of death metal superpowers this week! That’s always exciting. It’s been kind of a weird weekend on a number of fronts, so putting this list together was the perfect supplement to my body’s futile attempt to process all the alcohol I’ve consumed. I will apologize, the list is a bit shorter than usual. Some of the Nine Circles staff are off doing a lot of life-things for whatever reason, so that trims us down a bit. Maybe some of you think that’s a good thing? We don’t care either way. You know the drill, past playlists can be found on our channel here, and this week’s can be activated directly below. Enjoy!
