Fear not, for below you will find a quick list (with links to boot!) of all the albums mentioned by the Nine Circles crew as early 2019 favorites. Dive in, take a listen, and let us know what else is killing you so far this year.

We’ve reached the end of another one of those kinds of weeks that make me want to pull my hair out, had I any hair left to pull out in the first place. Thankfully, music soothes the savage beast, and we’ve got a boatload of goodies in store for you today. Take a listen below and let us know your favorite tracks we might have forgotten; we always appreciate hot leads on good music.
Receiving the Evcharist is our weekly feature where we pair choice albums with our favorite libations. Drink from the cup of heresy. This week’s offering: Yellow Eyes’ Rare Field Ceiling and Founders Brewing Company’s KBS Stout. Continue reading →
So, back to reality from last week’s land of sand, sun, saltwater, and relaxation. Ughhhhh. Bills must be paid so here we are. Whatever.
New metal is in abundance which, at this moment, is a very good thing and a very needed thing. Let’s do it… Beastwars returns with an outstanding album — you read that right, BEASTWARS — and you need it, Yellow Eyes are back and continue to keep the american black metal machine exceptionally greased, Low Flying Hawks offers up yet another gaze-y sludge effort, and TheNightTimeProject channels the more rockin’ side of Katatonia which is actually really good.
I’ll be over here perusing at max volume trying to channel last week’s ocean breezes. Don’t mind me, carry on.Continue reading →
I’m baaaaaaaack. Thanks to Josh for covering for me while I was away. I spent a great two weeks back in the icy winter of my home, Chicago, IL. I got to spend the holidays with all my family, catch up with some old friends from high school and college, eat and drink myself into oblivion, and watch my California-Born-and-Raised partner’s face light up when some unexpected snow flurries blew in. It was exactly the kind of recharge I needed after the trash fire that was 2018. I feel ready to get back in the saddle again, and what better way to do that than share all the good stuff I and my cohorts have been jamming over our respective holiday-time adventures? Check below for a list of tunes to whip your year into shape.
