And remember – Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

Spring is In the Air?

It is a little early for that, but Mother Nature is showing signs of it sometimes.  And one of our bands this week made an album for those 70 degree sunny days.  Like with Mama Nature, we didn’t ask for it, but got it anyway.

We’re  Missing a Few Lucky Charms 

Good luck getting horseshoes or balloons in here… Anyway, we have a jam packed show this week.  Why? On top of our (new) usual, we sprinkled a like live review for a little extra flavor.  Don’t like it? You can scrape it off and stick with what you’re used to.

Finally!  We finally found something Nick and Brian disagree on!  It also may not on be the album you think it is (based on your options below). Despite that album (or including it, depending on who you side with) there’s some good stuff here this week, ranging from the Retro-Synth-Electronic-Rock of Crosses to the Brutal Death Metal massacre that is Benighted.  Yeah…that’s happening.  That’s how we roll, bitches.
