Originally I was feeling guilty about missing the last two release weeks, which were absolutely packed with flashpoint metal records…then I took a look at this week’s lineup. Yeah, sorry, not sorry. WHAT TO HEAR: Let’s start this week at the fucking bottom with Mutilation Rites’ scathing new full-length, Chasm (Gilead Media). A crusty grind […]
As we stumble, bleeding out and going septic, into our annual celebration of America, let This One Goes to Eleven provide the soundtrack to our geo-political angst. Hot dogs sold separately.
