Spring release season is officially here and with it a bunch of goths in all black screaming about Pagan sun gods. God I love stupid, stupid metal. Let’s do this.
After a week on the lamb to get caught up sleep and sanity, TOGTE is back and probably about as tolerable as ever. Extend that hibernation one more week and join us.
Prepping for a show this week, so a little strapped for time/energy/sanity. Apologies in advance. Now let’s talk new music.
Nothing pithy or illuminating to say this week, just more metal. Not that anyone’s complaining… WHAT TO HEAR: At the vanguard of this week’s releases are Harakiri For The Sky and their sweeping fourth full-length, Arson (Art of Propaganda).
