Hopefully you all experienced similarly. And for those of you reading this that don’t celebrate, I hope you had a good Thursday anyway.

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.
