post-black metal

Off to a Groovy Start

As we work our way deeper into 2021, we transition with a hybrid episode of sorts.  We have two brand new albums for your earholes this week, but we also check out two more things we didn’t get to last year.  Per usual though, results are as mixed as the styles covered.

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

Oh, we also start the show with by continuing a conversation from last week, so feel free to chime in on that too.
