The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 114 (2.1.2020)

playlist - mixtape

Jesus what a week.  I thought I might be done eulogizing after Neil Peart’s tragic passing, and then immediately following that post I found out Sean Reinert passed away.  I’ve never made it a secret that Human is my favorite death album, and as much as I love everything Chuck does, it’s because that album has what is, in my opinion, his best backing band.  The Reinert/Masvidal/DiGiorgio combination that lead to songs like “Together As One” and “Lack of Comprehension” was incomparably important to the world of heavy music, to say nothing of Reinert and Masvidal’s accomplishments in Cynic on top of that.  Heavy music lost nothing short of an icon, one of the best drummers in the game and a tireless voice for acceptance and inclusion in the world of heavy metal.  I’ll be feeling this loss for quite some time, but we can and will still celebrate the work Sean left us with. — (ed.) And, of course, Reed Mullin, RIP and fly on brother. Death needs to take a break.

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to another Saturday mixtape. One that I don’t have to frantically throw together at the last Minute!  Because I actually managed to plan ahead for once!  Go me.  Let’s celebrate together with another batch of our favorite songs we’ve been listening to lately.  We’ve got a full house and some eclectic picks today, so there’s plenty out there for everyone.  Thanks for taking the time out to read the last one of these for this decade.
