Missed 2018 Albums

I'll never hear everything, or even be aware of half of all the metal that comes out in a year, which is why I love list season so much. Undoubtedly, tucked away behind all the obvious list choices are usually... Continue Reading →

Best Non-Metal of 2018

There's a five to ten percent where I'm not listening to metal, or I'm just in the mood for something else, and in that window I find music that is just as impactful for me as metal. I just spend... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Killing Joke – Killing Joke (2003)
