The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 80 (05.18.2019)

It is Saturday, my friends.  Get yourself a cup of your morning beverage of choice and get ready for another of our weekly mixtapes.  This week we’ve got a Battle of the Batushkas, a Not Metal band that I think is heavier than a good chunk of metal bands, and a brand new jam from the Florida sons in Torche.  Look upon our works, ye mighty, and despair.

Welcome to another weekend folks.  I have relatively little gas in the tank, so to speak, so this Saturday couldn’t possibly come fast enough for me.  Whatever sickness wormed its way into my body has been taking its sweet time leaving, so today we’re keeping things short and sweet.  You all should know why you’re here, anyway.

Or maybe you don’t.  In which case: hi!  We put together a playlist of our favorite songs we’ve all been listening to over the past week, just for you, and we do it every Saturday.  Check it out below, and check back in next week to see what else we listen to in our free time.

Cheers!

This is one of those weeks where I sincerely hope you all are doing better than I am.  As you can probably tell by my absence in our Friday column, I am laid up with all manner of plague, illness, and devilry this week.  The one saving grace has been a barrage of good music, both new and old.  The trifecta of new Gilead Media releases have all had their first tracks released, a rip-roaring new single dropped from my hometown heroes Immortal Bird, a stunning new collab between Full of Hell and Lingua Ignota, and the 30th birthday of The Cure’s Disintegration reminded me just what a masterpiece that album truly is.  These things have been carrying me through the week on their shoulders, and I’ll let them speak for themselves in our mixtape playlist below.  Now, to keep watching Diners, Drive-In’s, and Dives to remember a time when solid food was an option for me…

Welcome back readers.  Saturday is upon us once more, and with it comes another of our world famous (ok, maybe not yet) mixtapes for you.  The year is only one-third over and we’ve already been graced with a preposterous amount of good music lately, and this week in particular we got the first new track from the upcoming Yellow Eyes album, who are one of my favorite bands in existence, let alone in black metal.  That one’s not on Youtube, so you can have that for free.  We’ve tried to cram as much of it here as we can; here’s hoping it provides the soundtrack to a kick-ass day for you.  Cheers!

Hmm.  Today feels like a significant day for some reason?  I don’t know why I’m getting that impression.  It’s just a normal Saturday, after all.  Maybe because it finally feels like spring is here: the trees are growing, the buds are blooming, herbs are sprouting, and grass covers the high hills around here.  To be blunt: it fucking rules.  And we’ve got the perfect soundtrack to get the joint hoppin’.  Rise and grind and check it out below:
