When it comes to concerts, I try to go to at least one a year. After all, in between school and other events, it becomes rather difficult to catch them sometimes. However, when I heard that Amorphis was coming into town with three other bands I was curious about but never really dealt with before, I knew I had to see them. Thus, I decided to do the only thing I was able to do: prepare myself for a night filled with music by listening to the four band’s latest albums in order to know what to expect.

As I write this I’ve got some furious death metal punching holes in my eardrums and some really freakin’ phenomenal bourbon coating my insides. So, a good Friday…wait, Saturday. I don’t know, it’s late or early – whatever. Anyway, Thanksgiving is closing in which, in the metal and music world in general, means EOY time. Yea, I saw the Decibel thing get blasted because some dope leaked it but I didn’t read ahead to see what they picked – all it really did was remind me that I’ve got to start whittling my own list down and decide on this year’s bounty (it’s a must that I stock my liquor cabinet well). Moving on, we’ve got another stacked playlist in store for you below that, more than likely, features songs that will be attending EOY parties across the globe. But the point to this is these are all songs we’ve been cranking lately and we wanted to share the joy. So, BEHOLD, Vol. 56 awaits…
Enjoy your weekend, Happy Thanksgiving, and we will be seeing you here next week.
