If you’re reading this there are two possibilities at play, either of which warrant a hearty congratulations:
It’s the end of the year, and you found the strength, courage and forbearance to get through the infested muck that was 2020. Congratulations! I don’t know what 2021 will bring, but let’s put the future aside for a moment and just revel in survival, and talk about some great music.
It’s an indeterminate time in the future, after the apocalypse, and the collective hive mind has integrated into the data streams and come across this post in a random search string query to ascertain various data points about the distant past. Congratulations! I’m not alive to know what the Time Lords have in mind for the future, but let’s put that aside for a moment and just revel in whatever constitutes life in your existence, and talk about some great music.
Being into metal can be isolating enough…I remember as a kid in in high school (this would be circa 1990?) having to do a social studies project where kids would sing songs with social or political relevance. I can’t tell you how many kids did Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire.”
Me? I did Testament’s “Greenhouse Effect.” Being isolated wasn’t a problem after that.

We here at Nine Circles first met Curran recently while he was promoting the fantastic Eight Bells album Landless. Since then we have harassed him to no end, made fun of him and joked around (all in good fun). Curran is not only a publicist but has also played in multiple bands including Today is the Day, Wetnurse and currently Body Stuff. If you want to know more about Curran (which you should) you can check out his official website. Most importantly, Curran is a hardworking musician, publicist and general good guy that deserves a bit of attention and spotlight for all the work he does. So follow the jump to learn more!
