“Ahh, we are so far gone! I knew you once, what will you become?”

  • If you need something to relax to (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t right now?), I recommend this album Devin Townsend just dropped that is filled with guitar improvisation. Legit, it’s called Guitar Improvisation #1.
  • Former Misfits drummer Joey Image, who has been battling cancer since 2016, has reportedly passed away at 63. He was with the group from 1978 to 1980 and performed on a number of releases, including the Night of the Living Dead single.
  • We’re quickly approaching a decade since the last Times of Grace release, a project featuring members of Killswitch Engage, and it looks like new stuff might be on it’s way. Something to look forward to later this year or early 2021, perhaps?
  • Cultus Black have released an in-studio music video for “Witch Hunt”, which you can check out below. That track is also available to stream on pretty much every platform out there.
