We’re back with another edition of your favorite screamo column, Chaos is Me, later than I’d like this time but that’s what happens when you lose both your router and modem at the same time and have to live in the pre-internet age for a few days. Fortunately, all is returned to normal, which is good, because this month we have some very heavy hitters to cover in this column, including an album I’ve been anticipating for literal years. See how things stack up under the cut.
One month down and eleven to go. January was a good kick off month for metal in 2020 and February shows no signs of letting us down either.

Anyway, in the interest of new metal — as we feature here every week — branch out a bit and take a chance on something new or something you might view as outside your realm. You never know what might be found lurking just outside of that comfort zone.

Good morning all. Welcome to another Saturday mixtape session. This week, your resident screamo buff loses his mind over both new envy and new Loma Prieta (!!!!!), our newest staff member throws in one of Yob’s finest cuts (and check out her review of the new Tribulation live album if you haven’t already), and Chris reminds me that I need to be listening to more Voivod always. If you’re looking for something new to jam, there’s something for just about everyone here, so grab some headphones and a strong morning beverage and check out what we’ve been listening to down below.
