Opethian Transitions: Part Deux

Unlike the last episode, this one doesn’t actually have anything to do with Opeth.  However, our transitions of styles from review-to-review are extremely jarring.  Also, I am not in the mood to try to think up a better title.

You may also notice a review that seems out of place.  Why did we do it? Go to THIS PAGE to find out how you can help this podcast contribute to Crew Nation and make us review whatever you want.

And remember – Be safe. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

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

Not the Strong Start We Hoped For

This week we have our first reviews of 2020 releases, and, as the title suggests, you can tell it is still January.  What we also have, though, is out brand new segment we are calling  “Black Label,” where every month, we will feature a record label!  this will introduce us – and therefore you – to a whole lot of new music.
