The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 52 (9.8.2018)

playlist - mixtape

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…

In no particular order.

Back in January, I introduced you all to a small handful of projects I was anticipating for the year ahead, setting the expectation that I would probably be disappointed as always. Well, now that December is fully upon us, it’s time to go back and review how I reacted to each of those releases. I made sure to avoid reviewing any of these albums (which wasn’t hard… I don’t write as much these days) just to prevent any spoilers. I guess I should remind you of my 2017 introductory post before moving ahead. All caught up? Great. Now… let’s see how it all went and decide whether or not I was disappointed.
