Necrolytic Goat Converter

Turkey day came and went and how much did you gain? Was it worth it? For me, yes. Granted it wasn’t the same as years past but it was still epic in the sense of amazing home cooked goodness. Hopefully you all experienced similarly. And for those of you reading this that don’t celebrate, I hope you had a good Thursday anyway. Alright then, new metal time and this week we’ve got a new one from Necrolytic Goat Converter and while this is black metal it is an extremely personal outing from our very own Chris Voss which we are extremely proud of so please, get on this asap. Next up we’ve got an ass kicking EP from Soilwork, an incredible split between psych grungers Ghost:Hello and noise metal’s new saviors Night Goat, and a filthy death metal entry from Undergang that’s sure to please the old guard purists. Do all of those and all of the rest in this lengthy list. Enjoy.
