The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 147 (9.19.2020)

playlist - mixtape

Another Saturday and another chance to look behind the veil of what we’ve been jamming recently. Let’s face it, the world is shit right now BUT, shit in, shit out. So, how about we all hit play at the same time and just float away on the ether of the latest from doombringers Pallbearer, or metalcore from Jesus Piece and FINALLY some new Raging Speedhorn. Same can be said for the new Of Feather and Bone joint and a new funeral doom epic from Frowning. All that and some classic 3 Inches of Blood and Power Trip and Vincent drops yet another The Mountain Goats track for good measure. But, that’s only the beginning so hit that play button below and float off somewhere better than where we are at the moment. Happy Saturday.

Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning playlist series. This week, Khemmis covers Alice in Chains, I’m extatic over the announcement of a second new Mountain Goats album this year, and Anton won’t stop yelling about Dephosphorus again. All that and more down below.

Nine Circles ov… Vincent’s Mid-Year Favorites

There is a certain danger inherent in this kind of Babe Ruth-esque shot calling when it comes to mid-year lists. I myself am already guilty of attempting to label something my pre-emptive ‘Album of the Year’ and then almost immediately finding something I like more that takes its place. Twice in this case. But on the other hand, in an effort to buck my natural instinct to focus on only the worst aspects of my existence, I would like to acknowledge the albums that have made the first half of this year worth being present for. It’ll be quick and dirty, and I make no claims that this will represent me six months down the line when AOTY Season rolls around, but if you’re interested in what I’ve been enjoying so far in 2020, read about it under the cut in this Nine Circles ov… edition.

Welcome to another Saturday morning playlist. This week I’m subjecting you to ska punk (blame Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater) and blessing you with new Misery Signals, Ian has you covered with the Mrs. Piss debut, and for once I’m not the one throwing The Mountain Goats in here. Check it out under the cut.
