The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 220 (2.26.2022)

playlist - mixtape

Say goodbye, February. I wish I could say goodbye to the panic, the anxiety, and the fear as well, but tyrants are gonna tyrant, I guess. At least there’s music to keep us from falling over the brink, so let’s just jump into the 220th edition of the Nine Circles Playlist, and do what we can to stay informed, stay sane, and make what small differences we can to make this planet better for everyone.

I’m framing the playlist out with some Scatterbrain, because that describes my mental state at the moment and quite frankly it’s the music I needed to lighten the mood up. Anton brings in Ernia, Mass Worship, and Playgrounded. Josh mixes it up with Analepsy, Atoll, Black Flag and some vintage Dokken, among others. Vincent continues falling for Mitski and toe, but also rages with Worm and the new Falls of Rauros. Angela features the latest from Messa, Celeste, and Trna as well as a banger from Oathbreaker. And Buke? Buke goes with the latest from Spirit Adrift and Evil Invaders, but then hits the wayback button for some Candlemass, Dark Angel, Mercyful Fate, and Megadeth.

Get listening. Stay safe. See you next week.

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to a special s p o o k y Saturday edition of the Nine Circles Playlist.  To celebrate the fact that Halloween is right around the corner, we decided to include not only the songs we’ve been jamming this week, but also some of the staff’s favorite horror movie clips.  If you’ve ever wanted to get even further into the minds of the people who write for this site, that you’ve come to know and love (hopefully), then today’s your lucky day.  Or who knows, maybe you just want something that’ll scare you senseless first thing in the morning.  It be like that sometimes.

Thrills, chills, and a whole lot of riffs await you below.
