Buke is back, getting crazy and going in deep with Creeping Death's guitarist Trey Pemberton about the band's debut full length Wretched Illusions! College football, the pros and cons of power metal and black metal, and the dangers of allergies are discussed, along with a lot of music, tour plans, and other great stuff. This is some killer old school death metal, so check it out and hear what trey has to say on the Nine Circles Audio Thing!
We're back in classic trio format to cover all the angles for Episode 27 of the Nine Circles Audio Thing! Chris, Vincent and Charles come together like some weird off-brand Voltron to discuss the long-awaited return of Australian black/post/little bit of everything hybrid Hope Drone and their new slab of grief Void Lustre - our Album of the Month selection for August 2019!
With some last minute injuries our Scholar of the First Sin Hera is called from the bench to lead Episode 26 of the Nine Circles Audio Thing! Together with Vincent and Charles depths are plumbed and gauntlets are thrown concerning the many, many virtues of Patterns in Mythology, the latest from black/folk/all kinds of metal Falls of Rauros - our Album of the Month selection for July 2019!
Episode 25! How the hell did we make 25 of these?! It boggles the mind, but not as much as the production choices on Gold & Grey, the latest from Savannah rocking sludge merchants Baroness and not coincidentally our Album of the Month selection for June 2019!
It's a crowded house, but not Crowded House because we're a metal site and I can't get anyone to do a retrospective on the genius of Temple of Low Men. Anyway, if you're reading these words you know it's Album of the Month time and - as usual - it's right under the wire. But when you have a new album from Darkthrone you're damn right we're gonna want to talk about it. That's right, folks...Old Star is our Album of the Month selection for May 2019!
Matt makes his Nine Circles debut chatting with Paladin's vocalist/guitarist Taylor Washington about their recently released debut album Ascension. NASCAR, video games, and the perils of making a video are discussed, along with upcoming tour plans, and more.
We're back, and in (almost) trio format! Think of it as Rush when they were a blues band, or like a bunch of folks with no idea what they're doing but enthusiastic about it anyway, the Album of the Month series keeps on a-rolling, with Allegaeon taking the honors thanks to their unbridled guitar-wheedling fury that is Apoptosis - our Album of the Month selection for April 2019!
It's almost as if we kinda know what we're doing! Like an elephant bashing the drums with a gorilla on guitar, the Album of the Month series continues its ramshackle adventure into the heart of metal, this time crowning Devin Townsend and his solo magnum opus Empath as our Album of the Month selection for March 2019!
Two in a row! And not nearly as late as usual! Like an out of control freight train in a late 90s action film, the Album of the Month series continues its perilous journey, this time picking Ithaca and their debut full-length The Language of Injury -- our Album of the Month selection for February 2019!
And we're back! And late as usual! Happy 2019, folks...the Album of the Month series returns, bestowing the honor upon Mo'ynoq and their debut full-length Dreaming in a Dead Language -- our Album of the Month selection for January 2019!
Surprising no one, we're cutting it right down to the wire on this one...Huzzah! The Album of the Month series returns, bestowing the honor upon Beyond Creation and their new LP Algorythm -- our Album of the Month selection for October 2018!
