The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 63 (01.19.2019)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome back and happy Saturday everyone.  Another week behind us, and I’m happy to see the other side of this one.  I planned on spending this last week catching up with work after being away on vacation but it turns out that my mother gave me one last Christmas present: the goddamn plague.  So this week has been mostly me, already sick, taking care of my partner, who got hit much harder than me with whatever bug we got passed to us.  All my downtime did give me plenty of space to explore a ton of music though, both old and new.  I’ve got some really exciting promos in my inbox that are making me happy, but I’ve also been catching up on late 2018 releases I’ve been missing, like a ton of releases from Sentient Ruin that I unfortunately slept on.  Let me know what else I should have listened to in the comments.  That’s what the internet is for, right?

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…

Oh hey, it’s me! Yep, I still have time to do these things sometimes. Like, once in a blue moon. Apparently, nursing school and a complete absence from social media aren’t conducive to consistent metal blogging. Who knew? Anyway, we’re already late on this, so I’ll shut up. Here’s some stuff you might have missed from today:

CANTO: Tribulation, Rammstein, Crowbar, and more
