The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 176 (4.10.2021)

playlist - mixtape

I echo what Corey said in yesterday’s Canto: “This was one long fucking week.” For some, it’s done. For others, it’s not. Either way we’ve got another loaded mixtape, of stuff we’ve been spinning, to burn the day off with. We’ve got a killer opening pair with new Withered and Cryptosis, Insomnium, The Lion’s Daughter (insane new album that is), Wo Fat, Putrefying Cadaverment, Kauan, Dark Tranquillity, and a ton more. Whether you’re working, playing, drinking, or whatever, we’ve got the goods to get you through the day. Slap that play button below.

Anyway, new week means new metal and for this round we’ve got a fantastic entry from The Lion’s Daughter who dive deeper into horror synth (very, very good thing), a brutal death entry from a band you might need an English major and a doctor’s degree to pronounce, Onchocerciasis Esophagogastroduodenoscopy, another artsy rock outing from Årabrot who just get better with age, and a chilling post-metal album from Kauan. All that and a bunch more in the list below. Dig it.
