Ok, back in the swing of things.

  • Let’s start with my favorite thing of all time today. Kvelertak have dropped a new song and video called “Crack of Doom”. Better yet? It features Mastodon’s Troy Sanders. Splid is out February 14th through Rise Records.
  • My Dying Bride have opened 2020 with some good news. Their next album, The Ghost Of Orion, will be out in March. At the end of this week, they are planning to drop a new music video for a song called “Your Broken Shore” as well.
  • Gargoyl have signed on with Season of Mist (which is a decision I will always support, of course). And in line with that, they are planning a new album and some live performances later this year.
  • Finally, let’s wrap all this up with a new animated video from Moloken for a song called “Unbearable”. Their next album, Unveilance of Dark Matter drops on January 31st.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 73 (03.30.2019)

playlist - mixtape

You might have noticed brother Vincent is away on some business. He’s off fighting demon hordes and stealing souls…I kid, I kid. But there’s no doubt that when he returns, he’ll be regaling us with all the killer beer he’s had and all the earsplitting metal he listened to whilst slaying the road. Anyway, it’s SATURDAY folks – we made it! If you missed anything here this week, go back and catch up. For now though, we’ve got another good playlist of tunes to help make the weekend better and you know what to do. Right? Surely by now you do? I mean, 73 editions of this thing… you got this. Now, GO.
