The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 65 (02.02.2019)

playlist - mixtape

Welcome to the weekend y’all.  I for one am beyond stoked its here.  Even if I’m gonna be running around buying (somehow) more furniture for my apartment, it still feels like I’ve got some more breathing room.  The last couple days I barely had a minute to myself to unwind, but I’m excited to kick back with some tunes and fumble my way through vague Ikea instructions.  And boy do we have tunes today.  In addition to new albums from Ossuarium, Soen, Ithaca, and more heavy hitters, we bring you our own curated mix from across the sea of genres, for whatever mood your weekend takes.  Click play, and don’t forget to double check to make sure you aren’t missing any hardware for your new computer desk.

Kicking things off, Oregon’s Witch Vomit return for another (short) round of killer death metal on Poisoned Blood, Weregoat get bestial and downright nasty on their debut full length Pestilential Rites of Infernal Fornicationkeeping with the theme established thus far is Pig’s Blood with their debut full length Pig’s Blood which offers little in the way of good feelings and rounding out the top slots is Weapönizer with their second full length Lawless Age which features a wicked amalgamation of black metal, thrash and crossover. An overall brutal way to start a Saturday but as always there’s so much more to check out right after the jump. So go, now. Continue reading

Album Review: Pig’s Blood – “Pig’s Blood”

Pigs Blood - Pigs Blood

Behold Pig’s Blood, now signed to Godz ov War Productions.  The band is releasing their debut full length Pig’s Blood after much fanfare accompanied the release of their demo last year.  The band never compromises on brutality, playing death metal of high caliber.  If you want death metal with plenty of blast sections playing to the accompaniment of downtuned rhythm guitar, Pig’s Blood are worth the price of admission.  Far more than that, these guys know how to make death metal straightforward and fun to listen to.
