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.

Powerless Rise

When a nor’easter drops a foot of wet, heavy snow, takes down trees and power lines, and leaves most of your county without power, what do you do?  Drive to your girlfriend’s place so you can record your podcast.  The show must go on!

Short and Bitter

I know we haven’t gotten to 2017 releases yet, but we did do four releases this week.  Why four? Because they are short so we had the time.  And when I say short, I mean that all of these releases combined run only 10 minutes longer than one of our albums from last week.  There’s some good stuff in here, so get listening and grind these out with us!
