The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 88 (7.20.2019)

playlist - mixtape

Hello.  It’s me again, your old pal.  You’ll have to excuse my absence, I was off having the time of my life at Fire in the Mountains in Wyoming this past weekend.  Three straight days of camping, music, revelry, and the most glorious nature I’ve experienced in all my life added up to be one of the best weekends I’ve had in as long as I can remember.  More about my experiences there might be coming later on down the line, provided our own Corey Butterworth makes it back from backpacking in the Tetons alive.  But if you’re curious as to what my weekend was like, I included some choice cuts from some of my favorite sets in our weekly roundup playlist; it is Saturday after all, and that’s why we’re here.  Alongside my own picks are some of the best new tracks that this week has given us, plus just about whatever else floats our collective boat.  Tune in, turn the volume up, and get your weekend started right.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, Aura Noir will be headlining Stardust NYC’s two-night “Nightmares Over Brooklyn” series in October, with the band’s original trio lineup performing live in North America for the first time ever. And, once again, I’ll be away at school. Goddammit.
