Sometimes being at a loss for words can speak volumes. This becomes readily apparent as our faithful heroes maneuver through a slew of new albums, all of which are from more well known bands, compared to last week, anyway. All these reviews, luckily, have new tunes to accompany them…which is extra sweet for releases like Serpents Unleashed which has a few weeks before coming out, and we can give you a fresh taste of. But I digress in my excitement…just stop reading and listen for yourself already!

The vocalist sounds like “a castrato that got kicked between the legs”? Funny. It’s even funnier if you know what a castrato is and know the fact that a castrato who got kicked between the legs sounds the same as a castrato who didn’t get kicked between the legs.
Thank you for getting my exaggeration.
