This is it!  It is finally the end of 2020, and at the 11th hour, we are sharing our Top 20 albums fo the year.  Why did we wait so long? Mostly because Brian forgot to post it days ago.  But also because we wanted to go out with a bang?  Sure…let’s go with that….

Happy New Year everybody!  Here’s to a better year in 2021!

Death Won’t Die

Our inadvertent exploration into various styles of Death Metal continues this week with some Scandinavian Melodic Death and some Progressive/Technical Death Metal from Canada.  We also have a Swedish band that flirts with some Melodic Death too, but I mean, they’re from Sweden. It’s like in their blood or something.

Listapaloozamania Start Now!

It’s a week before Christmas and all through the podcast we were stirring, bitching, and moaning about making lists.  I mean, we go through this every year, so you think we would just get over it. Anyway, as in years past, we have a few other short lists like Best Artwork (which you can see below), Most Disappointing, and Worst Albums. Enjoy these treats this week, and come back next week for the 2016 grand finale!
