Initial Descent: March 6 – 12, 2022

Another week, another set of fails…I just know it, somehow. But, no fails in the metal new release world though as we’ve got new jams from Ghost and I’m probably more excited for this than I should be but damn those initial singles swept me off my ass so yea, I’m stoked. I’m also overly stoked for new death metal from Jesus Wept and Persecutory as well as charred and speedy thrash from Bastard.
