Is it just me or is the week after a nice, long holiday weekend harder than most? Maybe it’s the whole “gotta get back to pretending I’ve got my shit together” thing that takes a while to ramp back up? How quickly do we even forget that whole song and dance in the first place?! It’s almost like our lives were meant for more than work…

But I digress. This past week saw some killer music come out, as well as a buncha weird and interesting content hit the site. You can check both out in the list below. But remember, the list I give you here is just a taste. We got tons a tasty morsels to find in the rest of the site, so feel free to click around once you’re done with this prepared little amuse-bouche of metal.
