The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 24 (1.8.2018)


The dawn of a new week…or Monday depending on your point of view. I always love the feel of a new year, so much hope and the timing is right for fresh thinking about what’s expected. You can choose to be a negative ninnie or you can choose to look at everything with fresh eyes and thoughts. I’m not suggesting a complete turn away from the world at large but I am suggesting to find things: music, people, friends, family or whatever does it for you, and place emphasis on these things. We’re challenging ourselves this year and we hope you’ll do the same. Anyway, enough rah rah talk — the music we jammed on last week awaits. Subscribe here and hit the play button immediately below. Grab a fresh cup of coffee, you can thank us later. Continue reading

The Nine Circles Playlist: Vol. 3 (8.7.2017)


Happy Monday everyone. It’s currently Sunday afternoon here in sunny Portsmouth and Josh and I are starting to get ourselves together for the Neurosis/Converge/Amenra show down in Boston tonight.

A brand new edition of our playlist is available for your listening pleasure below. Miss a playlist from either of the past two weeks? Fret not, you can check out all the playlists on our YouTube channel. That’s it from me. Have a good week! Continue reading

Receiving the Evcharist: Woods of Ypres and Long Trail

Receiving the Evcharist

After a much needed week off from forcing you to receive my evcharist (phrasing), I have returned with a classic album and a newly discovered beer. I wanted to get this amazing combination out to the masses last week, but the reality of the situation dictated otherwise. Returning home at 3 AM from a Dragged Into Sunlight show will pretty much render you useless for a few days, as I experienced last week. Fortunately, at long last, I seem to have regained my weekly schedule and am happily sitting here drinking beer and blasting one of my favorite albums. The Metal: Woods of Ypres: Woods IV: The Green Album.
