Receiving the Evcharist: Primitive Man and Come Heavy or Not at All

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Rarely do we actually find a drink that perfectly pairs with the tunes at hand, but this time I think we’ve managed the perfect pairing, if you can survive to the end of it.  Receiving the Evcharist is our weekly feature where we pair choice albums with our favorite libations.  Drink from the cup of heresy.  This week’s offering: Primitive Man’s Insurmountable and Hubbard’s Cave’s Come Heavy or Not at All.

Receiving the Evcharist — Static Abyss and Schilling Beer Co.

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Alright, I’m going to preface this column a little differently today. I tend to embrace the drafting process for these, as they serve as a highlight in the transition from work week to weekend, but this week has found me feeling like absolute crap from start to finish, so my enthusiasm isn’t… quite there. I just can’t wait to be fully functional again. But hey, is that going to stop me from drinking a beer or two on a Thursday night? Hell no. I mean, sure, my tastebuds might not be exactly right, and my hearing is definitely thrown off by multiple days of stupidly intense congestion, but who cares! Both of the items I’m consuming this evening need to be shared. What I’ve been enjoying is brutally dark, heavy, and complex… and so is the metal!

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Aah, spring is here.  Maybe.  Hard to tell with the off and on snow we’re having, but at least that looks like it’s (almost) behind us now.  The changing of the seasons always brings about a change in my musical and drink tastes, and what better way to express both of those than another hostile takeover of this column?  Receiving the Evcharist is our weekly feature where we pair choice albums with our favorite libations.  Drink from the cup of heresy.  This week’s offering: Incite’s Wake Up Dead and Temperance Brewing Company’s Birdsong.

Receiving the Evcharist: Teratoma and Tree House Brewing Company

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Well, after a bit of a hiatus due to some really good and some not-so-really good happenings, I’m back to share what music I’m consuming my alcohol with… or is it the other way around? It doesn’t matter. Anyway, I took some inspiration from the wonderful Mr. Voss and decided to dive into a previously unfamiliar band and album for this week’s adventure. And I have good news to share, everybody! Not only did the tunes kick ass, I had just the beverage to go with it…

Receiving the Evcharist: Týr and Golden Monkey

Receiving the Evcharist 2018

Guess who’s back (back, back), back again (gain, gain).  I won the inter-office rock-paper-scissors competition for who gets to drink on the job this week, so naturally I’m going to overindulge in both righteous tunes and choice beverages.  Receiving the Evcharist is our weekly feature where we pair choice albums with our favorite libations.  Drink from the cup of heresy.  This week’s offering: Týr’s A Night at the Nordic House and Victory Brewing Company’s Golden Monkey.
