Welcome to Mixtape, our weekly feature where we hand the keys to the WASTOIDS Spotify account over to cool folks to share what they’re listening to.

Since forming 18 years ago, death metal band Knights of the Abyss has held it down as one of Arizona’s landmark metal bands. Propelled by dueling guitars and blast beats, KotA’s run of album’s—Juggernaut (2007), Shades (2008) and The Culling of Wolves (2010) established the deathcore group as standard bearers. As Pop Matters wrote in their review of TCOW, “The few remaining bands still playing deathcore should use this album as a model if they also decide to switch styles in the future.” After a long wait, Knights released two new singles in September, 2022: “Fumigated” and “Entrenched in Stench.” Today at WASTOIDS, Nick Florence of the band joins us to share some heavy sounds he’s been listening to, including selections from Show Me the Body, Melvins, Jóhann Jóhannsson, and more. Follow Knights of the Abyss on Instagram for more info.
