The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 64 (01.26.2019)

playlist - mixtape

We’re going to keep things short and sweet today.  Normally I’d be more wordy in these things, but I’m dead tired today.  Last night (as of this writing) I caught the LA date of the Primitive Man & Ulthar mini-tour.  It was an insanely cool show; it was my first time seeing Ulthar and they did not disappoint in the slightest, and the songs from Primitive Man’s upcoming split with Hell (more on that from yours truly later on down the line) sound uglier and more heavy than getting an anvil dropped on your face.  Local support from grind/powerviolence crew Whelm and doomy death metal purveyors Teeth rounded out the night in fine form.  All in all a great night, but getting home later than my Old Man Body can handle on a weeknight isn’t doing me any favors today.

Maybe that wasn’t as short as I had expected.  Oh well.  Time to let the music speak for itself.  Catch you next time.
