In the next few days the solstice will arrive, marking the longest day of the year before making its inexorable tread back to darkness.  So why not listen to some of the music the Nine Circles staff have been blasting in an increasingly futile attempt to impose some semblance of order into our chaotic lives?

Grab a beverage, make sure your sunglasses are snug, and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel here so you can treasure these playlists forever like a parent with severe attachment issues.  As a creepy dude on an island once said, “Be seeing you.”   Continue reading

CANTO: Ghost need nuns, Corey Taylor doing Doctor Who, and more

Corey’s in Vegas, so you’ve got me for the Canto this week. Only work was a mess and I got out late before heading to a show, so here I am, attempting this from my phone. This oughta be fun. (Maybe.) Anyway, here’s what we missed today:

Keep it heavy,
