The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 180 (5.8.2021)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another Nine Circles Saturday morning mixtape. This week is particularly exciting, as it gives me the opportunity to hurl praises at new music from Amenra and Lantlôs (the first new Lantlôs song in seven years!). Plus, we’ve got the new Withered single, a new(ish) Grave Miasma track, and some classic Metallica to round it out. We’re keeping it real heavy this week, perfect for your weekend wake up call. Check it out below.
