what’s in a name…

…and i’m running out of daylight again… this time of year is absolutely insane… so these bands aren’t so much metal in their sound as they are in their names: …and you will know us by the trail of dead : “has created quite a career out of mixing chaos and belligerence with intellectualism and […]
