KNOTFEST Playlist Adds 1.22.21

Posted by Chris Hudson in Playlists on January 22, 2021

A new drop from Architects, a firestarter explosion from Hyro the Hero featuring Spencer from Ice Nice Kills and fiercely good Pulse releases from Scarlxrd and Nervosa (including a new album) spearhead a week full of great playlist adds.

Both of Tribe Leaders’ new adds come from artists double dipping on the playlist with Architect’s newest “Dead Butterflies” joining its previous release “Black Lungs” and Hyro the Hero adding another high-profile collab on ‘Retaliation Generation’ this time with Spencer of Ice Nine Kills – his other being “Fight” with Chad Gray of Hellyeah.

System of a Down (with their two surprise November smashes in “Protect The Land” & “Genocidal Humanoidz) and BABYMETAL (their own track “BxMxC” and collab with Bring Me the Horizon on “Kingslayer”) also place two tracks on this week’s list.

Rounding out the rest of the top 50 tracks of Metal & Rock are The Pretty Reckless featuring Tom Morello, Of Mice & Men, Corey Taylor, The HU and more.

The Pulse of the Maggots playlist, which gathers the top 100 recent emerging artist releases, shines this week with a growing list of can’t miss artists.

Nervosa celebrates their ‘Perpetual Chaos’ album dropping today with “Under Ruins”. While trap metal’s Scarlxrd drops his second track in a week in the fierce “Red Light”. Italy’s Elyne shines on “Wounds Are Gold” & “Joke” from Zero Theorem adds another hit to the band’s growing catalogue.

Additional adds from Denmark’s Daze of June (joining last week’s fellow countrymen Ghost Iris on the playlist), Down in Sulphur, nascar aloe and more.
