The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 94 (8.31.2019)

playlist - mixtape

We’re back again folks.  I don’t have much to say except that I’m grateful again for my colleagues and friends who pick up my weekly column when life gets in the way (go check out Corey’s Evcharist from this past week and witness his return to the throne).  This week has had some pretty amazing highs and some pretty serious lows but I’m grateful for the music that’s allowed me to hit the pause button on life along the way.  You’ll find some of our favorite stuff here that we’ve been jamming the last week, as usual, irrelevant of genre and release date constraints.  Just an honest look at what we here listen to in our down time.  Take a look and a listen below, and thanks for checking it out.

CANTO: Tool, Mayhem, Fit For An Autopsy, and More

tool 2019

Friday Canto because why not?

  • So Fear Inoculum dropped today. I may have been one of those people in the local record shop at midnight to pick up a copy. I regret nothing. But on top of all that, Tool have announced a North American tour in October and November. And you can bet your ass I’m going to do everything I can to get to one of those shows.
  • Mayhem released a new song today, news that probably got lost in the shuffle of everything else going on. It is called “Worthless Abominations Destroyed”, and honestly I kinda dig it. I’m genuinely looking for Daemon, which is out on October 25h.
  • Municipal Waste have announced a new EP, called The Last Rager, and dropped a new music video for “Wave of Death”. That EP will be out on October 11th through Nuclear Blast.
  • Fit For An Autopsy have released a new music video today for “The Sea Of Tragic Beasts”. That particular number is the title track from their upcoming new album, out on October 25th, also through via Nuclear Blast. Check it out.

Today has been, in a word, brutal.

CANTO: Batushka, Monolord, GosT, and More

Batushka - Hospodi

I’m gathering that I’m not supposed to like both Batushka things happening. I’m also gathering that I don’t care.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 60 (12.15.2018)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome back y’all.  It’s been an interesting week.  Work sucks (who actually likes their job anyway?) but I’ve been consoling myself by taking extra time in the mornings to take the train to work in lieu of driving.  It gives me time to listen to an album on the way there and an album on the way home, which when coupled with the cold winter air and exercise has been doing wonders for my moods.  It’s also helping immensely when it comes to categorizing my year end list.  I still took time to check out the new song from American Football though; I grew up a sad man from Illinois and I’ll die a sad man from Illinois.  Want to see what else I and my colleagues have been listening to?  Check the playlist below…
