We have starkly diverse line-up of reviews this episode. I mean, we usually have a mix of styles, but there were some sharp transitions when we were listening this week.  We also start our next Black Label feature, and talk about quarantine life.

Feel free to discuss anything and everything with us in our comments section or on social media!

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

Nick Doesn’t Care

Stages of Evolution

The only constant is change.  We have seen bands change from almost unnoticeable amounts to seismic sonic shifts. As the catalogs for the three bands below grow, we take a look at how they have evolved..and whether or not we like the change.

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