Due to commuting 50 hours a day to and from work in this stupid Boston area traffic, and packing day and night to move across the country, I decided to take a month off from the show, and will be back in July. 

I will be back with Bands Not To Miss, and maybe an interview with some local metal head that feels like blabbering.

Take it easy or something!!  SEE YOU IN JULY!!!

Without food or water they are forced to eat the flesh of their kin while the heat from the approaching sun slowly cooks them alive. Eventually their screams reach out across the stars to awaken a slumbering Rift Wurm, which knocks them off course. Their ship crash lands on an inhabitable planet, and the unlucky survivors begin to rebuild their society with one goal in mind: Revenge.”)
