The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 49 (8.4.2018)

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.

It was an honor joining the Nice Circles team this year. I started a series of posts called A Headbanger’s Journey that I hope to continue into 2018.  Late to the party,  I bought an absurd amount of music at the end of the year, much of it from the excellent Nine Circles coverage and I’m just now coming up for breath. In 2016 I went back in time to investigate the early death metal classics of the late 80’s/early 90’s and this year, I did the same with classic punk and hardcore. Both of those genres inform my current listening and are reflected in this list. So, let’s see where the rubber hits the road.   Continue reading
