Hard to believe it’s been a decade since Job For A Cowboy graced us with Sun Eater yet here we are on the eve of Moon Healer and we couldn’t be more stoked for it if we tried. This band occupies a special spot for most of here on staff as they exemplify our varied tastes in death metal and all things extreme. With this album that statement couldn’t be more true as it is wildly all over the map yet cohesive and heavy as lead at the same time. Ian screamed the loudest when the news dropped of a new album so it was the obvious choice to get him on with our podcast m ..read more

The Nine Circles Audio Thing: Vitriol was January 2024’s Album of the Month!

It’s a well known fact that Vitriol slap, as they say. But did you know that they are one of a very few and select bands pushing death metal to new heights? That’s kind of a rhetorical question…more of a fact tidbit for you than anything since their latest effort Suffer & Become is somehow better than anything they’ve touched to date and blows everything out of the water thus far this year. Fitting it is that this album lands at our collective Album of the Month pick and also fitting that it was pretty much unanimous for those in attendance for this chat as well as those ab ..read more

Album Review: Necrowretch – “Swords of Dajjal”
Nine Circles » Death Metal
by Chris
3w ago
What do you do when you’ve outgrown the confines of your genre? It sounds like France’s Necrowretch have been grappling with that question since their humble beginnings as a one-man lo-fi blackened death dealer. Small tweaks to a tried and true formal can only carry you so far, though, and so after four years comes the massive leap of Swords of Dajjal, signaling a revitalized band with a new approach and sonic ferocity. Sometimes the hype is for real, folks. Not that there was anything particularly wrong before. Starting with 2013’s Putrid Death Sorcery and continuing through the triptych wit ..read more

Receiving the Evcharist: DDEEAATTHHMMEETTAALL and Amistosa

You smell that?  It smells like the first review (of mine, at least) of the new year, and boy howdy does it smell good.  This might be the strongest any year I’ve written for this site has started off, so if this is where the bar is set at already, I’m thinking this is going to be a very good year for heavy music.  Drink from the cup of heresy.  This week’s offerings: Escuela Grind’s DDEEAATTHHMMEETTAALL and Sketchbook Brewing Company’s Amistosa. — The Tunes: Escuela Grind’s DDEEAATTHHMMEETTAALL The third installment in a trilogy of EPs celebrating the influences on the N ..read more

Concert Review: Whitechapel, In Flames, and Meshuggah, 12.9.2023
Nine Circles » Death Metal
by Corey

Well friends, I managed to make it to one more show this year. And honestly, and in very much a good way, I think I’m still recovering from it a week later. My opportunities to catch the mighty Meshuggah live have been limited over the years, so when they announced In Flames and Whitechapel would be joining them for a North America run I had the Boston date circled immediately. We’re all aware of my adoration of In Flames, and then Whitechapel was a name I was excited to immerse myself in more, so across the board this was one I had to make happen. Without a doubt, this Saturday night was on ..read more

Receiving the Evcharist: Walking Corpse and Barrel of Monks Grand Cru

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since we’ve had a Evcharist on the site. I can tell you from first hand experience we’ve definitely been drinking (well, I’ve definitely been drinking) so accept this pitiful offering as both apology and promise to inform you, the loyal Nine Circles reader, of what we the staff are consuming from both a metal and malt perspective. So let’s dive in to Our Hands, Your Throat by Walking Corpse and the Grand Cru Belgian Scotch Ale from Barrel of Monks. — The Tunes: Walking Corpse’s Our Hands, Your Throat I don’t know when I fell into grindcore, but early si ..read more

Leila Abdul Rauf and Daniel Butler of Vastum on their new album “Inward To Gethsemane” and much more!
Nine Circles » Death Metal

By now, and as one of 20 Buck Spin’s longest running acts, death metal institution Vastum needs zero intro from us, or you for that matter. Album number five, Inward To Gethsemane, continues the stomach churning filthiness they’ve so readily displayed but this time the songwriting and delivery has some incredible punch to it. The band has been long time favorites of most of us on staff but none moreso than our very own Buke who got the opportunity to chat with guitarist, vocalist, and synth master Leila Abdul Rauf and vocalist Daniel Butlerabout the album, some band history, and tons of other ..read more

Album Review: Vastum — “Inward to Gethsemane”
Nine Circles » Death Metal
by D Morris
3M ago
At the end of the liner notes for Inward to Gethsemane, the fifth album from death metal stalwarts Vastum, the band thank “everyone who’s endured our Gethsemane nights…”. For those unfamiliar with Christian theology, Gethsemane is the garden where Christ prays after the Last Supper and prior to his capture by the Romans. Christ knows that betrayals and his eventual death are in his near future. He prays to his Father to release him from his destiny. Of course, His prayers go unheeded, and these things come to pass. It’s certainly a unique metaphor, hinting at nights where one may ask for a r ..read more

Album Review: Fuming Mouth — “Last Day of Sun”
Nine Circles » Death Metal
by Ian
3M ago
I remember all the hype that The Grand Descent, the debut of Massachusett’s own Fuming Mouth got.  I also remember feeling like that album absolutely lived up to the hype.  I was immediately taken by the brutal mix of death metal and crusty hardcore, and even though it’s not exactly a brand new concoction, I felt like there was something intangibly charming about the release, especially for a debut.  And then, as the music scene gets harder and harder to keep up with, I realized that I hadn’t heard anything from or about Fuming Mouth in a while.  Last Day of Sun, the long ..read more

Album Review: Sepulchral Curse — “Abhorrent Dimensions”
Nine Circles » Death Metal
by Colin

Anyone following Nine Circles closely over the past year will have noticed I’m not much of a death metal guy. In fact it looks like only three reviews I’ve done so far have had any focus on death metal acts, and even for those albums other styles were incorporated. I don’t dislike it, but despite being heavily into tech death in my college years much of the genre has fallen off for me in full favor of my beloved black metal (unless of course you’re Blood Incantation, Spectral Voice, and now Tomb Mold). Nowadays a death metal album has to effectively incorporate a healthy dose of black metal ..read more
