And another crazy month has passed.  With all the loose ends caught up on, we’ve made a concerted effort to get everything up to date, and essentially succeeded…if you don’t count the deluge of incoming materials by the day (generally with release dates for next month’s coverage, but not always…) and how long it takes to cover so much material every month.

May I talk you into June? Another munificent mid month Roundup

Well, believe it or not, we’re still playing catchup with a number of labels and releases, all these months on…there’s just too much stuff coming in for one man to handle, much less one with an active podcast to research, record and run, other interests and a life to lead.  The good news?  We’re getting closer and closer every time.

This one was intended as the monthly Roundup cycle, but after getting through a few of the majors and usuals, there was a concerted effort to put a few patiently waiting sources’ materials to rest.  And with any artist, there’s a point where you know that’s enough – you’ve worked this material out sufficiently to put a pin in it.

So yeah, a few labels won’t see their most current and/or soon upcoming materials represented herein.  Next time around, no worries.

A few other folks, you’re welcome, and apologies for all the backlog the dawning of 2019 managed to cause…

Avaunt!

Ah, at last the icy hand of Winter begins to loose its grim grip!  Spring has sprung and you almost feel like departing the cavern, squinting at an unfamiliar light…

Well, we’re finally getting into the home stretch, catching up on all that mountain of backlog cluttering up our review shelves.

At this point, a few indie-based folks aside (who we’ll continue to normalize into the regular reviews), this standalone should catch everyone up on a large number of releases, mostly in the black metal spectrum, but also including some goth, death metal, speed/thrash and stoner/sludge acts along the way.

Whew!

Trying to catch up with this voluminous backlog of releases isn’t an easy task, I tell ya.  And all this while still researching, recording and editing Weird Scenes podcasts and having an actual life?  Somebody, put me on salary already, this is getting to be a full time job in itself, no BS…
