Who'll Stop the RainJun 20, 2014
It was raining this week, and that's good enough reason for me to make a Creedence Clearwater Revival reference, which segue'd into a Big Lebowski reference. None of which is very metal, but I DONT CARE.
This'll be quick and dirty. MAETH is coming into the studio, and performing LIVE on the show next week. That'll be rad. We played great music, including a request for some Death, new music from Artificial Brain, and local music from Cold Colours and Maeth. We also played some Deafheaven, who will be at the Triple Rock on monday with Pallbearer, and the show is sold out so neener-neener-neener. Also, I mistakenly said Corrosion of Conformity was one of Glenn Danzig's projects, which is completely untrue. When I said that, I was thinking of Samhain, for some reason. Weird crossed wires there. Anyways, sorry.
Track of the week is Hail by Bongripper, from the album Satan Worshipping Doom (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFRkw1sxBHs)
