Darkness in Many Forms

Atmospheric and brooding.  Gothic and creepy. Venomous and aggressive. These are just some of the ways we get to hear the dark this week.  Generally speaking, they are all enjoyable, it just comes down to what you prefer.  If you’re not sure, just stick through he show and try them all!

Inconsistent Speeds

It is said “variety is the spice of life.” You don’t get much more “variety” than listening to 15 minute long Doom songs next to minute and a half long furious Hardcore Punk songs. We at least do you a solid and throw some Mathcore-ish stuff in the middle. It makes the transition easier.  Trust me.
