By this point in the week we can all do with something to just hit play on and forget about everything. If that’s what you came for you’re in luck as we’ve got another playlist of gems we’ve been listening to throughout this past week and it’s perfect for queuing up while you’re doing whatever you do over the course of a weekend and of course, to forget about it all for awhile. Oh and following up on last week’s talk of upcoming releases, what are you most looking forward to from here on out to the end of 2018? Let us know in the comments section but first, subscribe to our YouTube channel here then head below for this week’s jam session.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 52 (9.8.2018)

Fall is teasing us with slightly cooler nights and 2018 is not getting any weaker on the back end for metal releases. The hits just keep coming: The Ocean recently announced Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic for a November street date FINALLY, and Evoken will serve up Hypnagogia in that same month. We will also see albums from Hate Eternal, Voivod, Sumac, Megaton Leviathan and so many more before this year is done, all of it excites me to no end. Fall has the same effect; Halloween and horror movies and fires…yessss. I’ve gotten all out of sorts here as you can clearly see but you came to check out what we’ve been listening to over the past two weeks so let’s get to it. Subscribe to our YouTube channel here and head immediately below for a Saturday filled with all the good stuff…

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 51 (8.25.2018)

We skipped a week, again. Because things. But we’re back and man, I’m still loving that new art up there. It’s the little things in life that brings joy these days. Anyway, these playlists are sort of like Initial Descent in a way, you might find a song you haven’t heard or a new artist you had no idea about OR you simply use this to pass the time while mowing the lawn or kicking a can. No idea what you do with it but use as you wish. This week we’ve got picks from all over the place: some new some old and some bl…wait. Seriously, it’s another solid bunch that we’ve been jamming since Vol. 50 and it’s long enough to run through a twelve pack, or three, so score. One last thing: I know all of you understand the concept of a comment section so listen to this thing and offer up some picks you would’ve included. Or not, choice is yours.

Either way, have a great rest of the weekend.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 50 (8.11.2018)

Before you start reading look up. See that image up there? When I see a cassette I think of mixtapes and maaaaan, I used to love making those. But even better was receiving them through snail mail from other folks with like minded music interests. Cassettes have made a comeback but in this digital age, those tape trading days are sadly behind us. Playlists have essentially taken their place and as of today Nine Circles has brought you fifty of them. To celebrate this 50th volume, we figured we’d spruce it up a bit. Hope you dig it, I know I do. Anyway, we’ve got another great bunch of tunes to share that left a mark over the past few days, dig in below. And HEY, share your own picks in the comments section or share some that might have made it onto your personal mixtape back in the day.

Have a good weekend and we’ll see you next week.

Since it’s the weekend, finally, I tried some Wild Turkey “Longbranch” which is a collaboration between the ‘Turkey’ and Matthew McConaughey. My conclusion is: it’s just alright, alright, alright. Humor mileage will vary there and just to be clear, anytime is the right time for bourbon and not just the weekend. Anywho, so it’s been a couple weeks since the last playlist and I’m sure you missed it…right? Whether yay or nay, we’ve got another batch of tunes that have, in one way or another, struck a chord or made us reminisce or whatever we did with them. Subscribe to our YouTube channel here then head immediately below for a good Saturday jam session. AND if you feel particularly froggy, leave your own playlist picks in the comments. What did we miss? What’s scratched your itch? We must know.

Have a good weekend and we’ll see you next week.
