Posted by on December 12, 2017

This was a year of hooks for me. I usually favor at least a couple extreme records each year, but frankly as I get older, I don’t have the attention span for anything that doesn’t have things I can hum back to you. That’s not to say I’ve gone completely soft; I liked the Full […]

Posted by on November 7, 2017

Metal By Numbers 10/8: Marilyn Manson has a heavenly debut

Metal by Numbers 10/4: Even Mastodon’s EPs sell
