Welcome to another Nine Circles Saturday morning mixtape. This week, we’re sharing some of our favorite Entombed/Entombed A.D. cuts in honor of the life and legacy of L-G Petrov, a presence that left an undeniable mark on the world of death metal and extreme music as a whole. Plus, a whole slew of everything else we’ve been listening to. Tune in at the link below.
Happy Halloween! There’s no better time to wrap up my annual Hoop-Tober horror marathon than by re-visiting some old classics and just marveling at how the masters of the genre did it bigger and better all those years ago. The first two entries in the Friday the 13th series may have done more damage than good in the sheer glut of poor copycat films that came after, but they’re still a rip to watch. John Carpenter’s original Halloweenstill stands as a singular achievement in pacing and streamlined storytelling. Wes Craven brings the horror a gleefully evil personality for the first time in the original and best A Nightmare on Elm Street. And to this day there is still no terror like the slam of a steel door signalling you’re trapped in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
Leading off with some HOLYSHITAWESOME news: Gilead Media and 20 Buck Spin have announced that Migration Fest will be returning in 2018. That’s about all we know at the moment, but shit, that’s good enough for me. If you didn’t make it to the inaugural edition, you’d best course-correct next year.
