THIS IS IT, HEAVY METAL FANS! THE BIG DAY HAS FINALLY COME! GET EXCITED! WOO!
Yes, my fellow connoisseurs of all things heavy, today is the day you’ve been waiting for: NIRVANA DAY! As you all well know, November 3rd sees the release of several Nirvana and Nirvana-related releases. For those of you who haven’t already created your NIRVANA DAY CHECKLIST, here’s a handy cheat sheet of the day’s releases:
- The “Deluxe” reissue of Bleach, Nirvana’s 1989 debut for Sub Pop, featuring a previously unreleased 1990 concert from Portland, Oregon (CD / Vinyl formats)
- Nirvana: Live At Reading, an official edition of the oft-bootlegged audio/video recording of the band’s classic performance at the 1992 Reading Festival (CD / DVD formats)
- The first, of what will likely be many, anthologies of the Greatest Hits of former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters (CD / Vinyl formats)
- A curious collection of previously unavailable and presumed discarded “death metal” demos entitled Nirvana 2002: Recordings 89-91, arguably for collectors only (CD format)
Oh, and I think that Slayer band has a new one out today too.
