While many of you feel as though we are at a threat level shown in the image above, we certainly are not. Unless you’re searching for toilet paper or antibacterial gel and then, all bets are off. But seriously, tons of us are fighting with social distancing, schools being called off, stores baring less and less, restaurants and local bars calling it a day for awhile, and the barest of essentials unrelated to the virus being scarce at best. Thanks hoarders, we’ll be sure to flay your skin first in the next major pandemic. Anyway, while you’re at home, we understand there’s a huge need for entertainment and far be it from us to keep you from it. Consider this Part 1 of a need to keep the good times flowing with everything from Khemmis covering Dio, ACxDC’s new one, Warbringer, new Witchery and beyond. Plus, we’re hoping the new Black Crown Initiate will make Buke smile. Enjoy and stay safe, friends.

Warbringer lost two members, which may be too much for them to overcome. What I did find kind of cool, however, is the fact that they reached out to their fans for input.
