November-December Updates

We still have a few new album reviews to post before the year ends. But every year there is so much that comes out we can only review so much. Even with Jack Mangan contributing at the Metal Hall of Fame, and Rich Catino also writing for Bravewords and the Metal Hall of Fame. So below here is a laundry list to keep up with, or catch up on. Jack and Rich will be posting their Top 25 Albums of the Year lists here at the Features page, as well as a Facebook livestream discussion. We also went to a couple great shows in the fall...Zeal and Ardor, Mercyful Fate/Kreator/Midnight, W.A.S.P./Armored Saint. Kix in New Jersey beginning of December.
