Lamb of God

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Notes!

Actually, yes we do. Well, at least Brian needs notes.  Regardless, we have some good recommendations this week, some from familiar territory, and others new to us!

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

Overcompensating

Five releases, a First Impression, AND a Live Review?  What were we thinking?  Well, to be honest, we were thinking that the three of these are only EPs so we can handle it.  Can you?

Hit the Road, Jack

Hey, we have three brand new albums again!  Imagine that…  Also, as promised last week, we have a rundown of all the tours in progress or coming around soon.  Well, not all of them.  I realized we missed at least two (and apparently got a few other pieces of information wrong…but that is the Internet’s fault), but that has all been fixed in the list below, so that counts for something.  Right? RIGHT?  That’s what I thought.
