Initial Descent: July 25 – 31, 2021

By the time this goes to print, I’ll be knee deep in my once a year “Great Reset.” It has been a grueling and ridiculously stressful first half of 2021, on so many fronts, so this will be a much needed thing to unfray the frayed ends of sanity. I’m pretty sure most of you reading this can relate. Anyway, the new metal listings this week kick off with an impeccable second full length from doomgazers King Woman that, to my ears, is leaps and bounds over the debut, just incredible. Next we’ve got post-black metal from Lantlos, and two death metal entries from Fetid Zombie and Galvanizer. And, of course, a full scroll of entries follows. Plenty to dig into here, go get some. See you back here after the reset.

Saturday. Finally. What a shit week. No matter though as we’re back with our mixtape of stuff we’ve been jamming this week and guaranteed there’s something here that’ll fit whatever you have going on today. We’ve got some newish Sanguisugabogg, fresh Thy Catafalque and tons of Suidakra, a demo track from Crypticus, a slappin’ death metal beast from Diabolizer, Kataan, Withered, and many more. Basically the perfect playlist to massacre some lawns with or light up an early party with, or just…whatever the hell you have on tap. Good times. Let them roll via the play button below.

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.
