Concert Review: Bell Witch and Primitive Man, 11.3.2017 and 11.11.2017

Primitive Man - Bell Witch 2017

Both Josh and I were lucky enough to catch the massive Bell Witch/Primitive Man shows in our respective areas. Since these two shows fell in rather quick succession, we decided to combine our thoughts into a single post. These performances undoubtedly left an impact on us both, so let’s get into it, shall we?

For some it’s a holiday, which means no work, but for others it’s just another Monday. I fall in to the latter but who cares, right? As Corey mentioned last week Halloween is approaching and it’s a joyous time of year — horror movies, haunted houses, costumes (good and bad), candy and seasonal beer (again, some good some bad). One thing is for sure though, no matter what you have going on we have the playlist for it and with this being the 12th volume, and back to a robust size, there’s literally something for everyone. Drop by and say hello on our YouTube channel but in the meantime hit the play button immediately below and kick the week off right. Continue reading

Initial Descent: October 1 – 7, 2017

Primitive Man

Sick and twisted times call for sick and twisted music…

Leading the charge this week is one of the sickest bands in metal: Primitive Man. They may only be on their second full length but throughout their vast library of splits and EPs this band is consistently massive and Caustic heavy handedly continues the tradition but sicker and somehow more twisted. Next up is debut full length The Unlawful Assembly from black metallers Dawn Ray’d and the press surrounding this release is more than warranted. It’s not only very good black metal but carries a timely message or stance, if you will. Moving along is the impressive doom and 70s folk/prog of Dreadnought on A Wake In Sacred Waves, this is an album that truly washes over you (no pun intended). Last up in the top slots is the towering Curse of Conception from Spirit Adrift, this thing is full of traditional doom and heavy metal aplenty, sound good? It is, trust me. That’s it for the for the first four but as it usually goes, there’s so much more right after the jump. So, GET IN THERE. Continue reading

Album Review: Primitive Man – “Caustic”

Primitive Man are one of the most respected names in underground metal right now, a staple of the Denver scene and a band that has the reputation for putting out some of the most frighteningly heavy music in this day and age.  After years of split releases and EP’s, the band is finally doubling down and releasing their second full-length, Causticwhich stands to be the band’s most challenging release yet.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 11 (10.2.2017)

We welcome in October with a bit of a shorted playlist. 11 tracks in total, covering a decent spectrum with an obvious addition of tracks/albums we are looking forward to dropping soon. Halloween season is upon us officially, so we may as well pretend this playlist is in celebration of… something. Alright, I need go work or something. Whatever the hell it is I do. If you want to say hi on the YouTubes, you know where to find usContinue reading
