Good morning and good Monday. What’s good about it? I’m not sure yet, maybe this coffee will have the answers. I do know that it’s hard to believe we’re halfway through 2018 already. There’s been a lot of quality metal in the first half and the second half shows no sign of stopping that trend. To that point, we’ve got another playlist of tracks some of us dug into last week – some new, some old, some eclectic but all are good. Our YouTube channel can be found here but for the sake of being easy, you can hit the play button directly below. Feel free to use it as a July 4th party starter, there’s some fireworks contained within. Speaking of, don’t do anything stupid this week like burn a hand off or singe all the hairs from your face. Just sayin’ Continue reading

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 46 (6.25.2018)

Nothing like a Monday morning to bring you back to the realization that vacations just don’t last forever. Then it wouldn’t be a vacation. Which means….. completely lost that train of thought and just need coffee plus nobody cares. Anyway, we’re back with Vol. 46 of our weekly playlist and again have some fine specimens to offer up. Last week was so busy with sand, sun and other stuff that honestly it’s good to get back to the metal. Thanks to the fam for keeping things between the lines last week and if you missed any of that great content just go back and take it all in while you listen to what we’ve been digging. Subscribe to our YouTube channel here (if you did you would’ve had a sneak peek early) and we’ll be seeing you throughout the week. What did we miss? What have you been into? We’d love to know so leave them in the comments. Continue reading

In the next few days the solstice will arrive, marking the longest day of the year before making its inexorable tread back to darkness.  So why not listen to some of the music the Nine Circles staff have been blasting in an increasingly futile attempt to impose some semblance of order into our chaotic lives? There’s a mix of a number of different sounds this week, running from hardcore and black metal to country and whatever we’re classifying Zeal & Ardor these days (besides excellent).

Grab a beverage, make sure your sunglasses are snug, and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel here so you can treasure these playlists forever like a parent with severe attachment issues.  As a creepy dude on an island once said, “Be seeing you.”   Continue reading

Another week and another good playlist of tunes we dug last week, hopefully you’ll feel the same. Dive in and enjoy the ride but don’t forget to subscribe to our channel here. See you later on this week. Continue reading

Circle Pit, Vol. VII, June 2018: “What Album Can You Not Live Without”

I know, you thought this would be a quarterly round up. Sorry, but you’ll need to wait a little longer for that. It’s been a minute since we did one of these with an actual topic. Well, two years to be exact. But who’s counting? Anyway, the question was posed to our group: “What’s the ONE album you absolutely, positively cannot live without?” And the rules were simple, we graciously allowed everyone to actually pick two: one metal album and one album of any other genre. Or, those that never branch out could opt to name just a metal album. Yes, that’s contradictory to the question, but our folks generally like more than just metal so sue us for breaking form. There was some great conversation about these picks but for now, we leave you with the group choices and a playlist at the bottom. Enjoy. Continue reading
