Well, here we are again, with the first strains of Fall wafting their way into view…then vanishing again…then back again…whoops, now it’s clearly Indian summer, complete with near 90 degree temperatures, intense humidity and a whole hell of a lot of sweating. What the hell?
Any way you slice it, September is always a really f***ed up month.
And so it is perhaps appropriate that we come to what may be the most bizarrely disparate collections of music we’ve been given to review in some time, from upbeat AOR and Christian metal to some of the darkest corners of the black metal subgenre, ones that venture where even seasoned fans hesitate to tread.
Do I really need to say it? Because it’s one of those.
Hang in there, it’s going to be one hell of a bumpy ride.
