Slaughter of the Soul: Barge to Hell: Behemoth, Enslaved, Exodus, Mayhem, At the Gates, Napalm Death, Municipal Waste, Nachtmystium, Brujeria, Sepultura, and many more, Caribbean, 12/3-7/12

Hi. I’ve already got a piece up on about this…but it had to be edited down and there was just too much to say about this weekend. So here’s more. 1. Traveling to Atlantic City takes too long for people who live in most of the world. Also, Atlantic City is evil, and not […]
