Good morning and welcome to another exciting Nice Circles mixtape. This week, we bring you new singles from Iron Maiden, King Woman, Four Stroke Baron, and many, many more. Plus, classic Baroness, Bloc Party, and lo-fi sad boy jams to cover all your bases. Check it out at the link below.
We’ll see you in a couple of weeks; the mixtape is taking a short break while our intrepid Editor in Chief takes a much needed vacation.
Cradle of Filth have announced a live stream event on Halloween, performed in St. Mary’s Church. This sounds… delightful. Get your tickets here. Side note: how is Halloween already a topic of discussion again? What a strange year.
Clayman turned 20 today, and we all know In Flames celebrated the occasion with an anniversary edition of the record, complete with a few re-recordings. One of which was “Only For The Weak”. Say what you will about the new version, but this video hits me in all the nostalgic feels.
This is terrible news, but it’s reported that a Slipknot fan died after falling in the mosh pit at the Chicago-area stop on the Knotfest Roadshow. The exact cause is still to be determined, but witnesses noted that he looked totally fine leading up to the incident. Sad, sad stuff.
Hello. It’s me again, your old pal. You’ll have to excuse my absence, I was off having the time of my life at Fire in the Mountains in Wyoming this past weekend. Three straight days of camping, music, revelry, and the most glorious nature I’ve experienced in all my life added up to be one of the best weekends I’ve had in as long as I can remember. More about my experiences there might be coming later on down the line, provided our own Corey Butterworth makes it back from backpacking in the Tetons alive. But if you’re curious as to what my weekend was like, I included some choice cuts from some of my favorite sets in our weekly roundup playlist; it is Saturday after all, and that’s why we’re here. Alongside my own picks are some of the best new tracks that this week has given us, plus just about whatever else floats our collective boat. Tune in, turn the volume up, and get your weekend started right.
