Summit – “Pale Moonlight Shadow”

If we could slap ye olde RIYL stickers on Bandcamp pages, maybe “like Justin Broadrick on the ISS remixing the last five years of metal!” would get pasted on I, Voidhanger’s stream of Summit’s full-length debut, The Winds That Forestall Thy Return.

Paul Is Alive: 10 Quick Thoughts Upon Seeing Paul McCartney With My Dad

1. My first musical memory is riding around in my dad’s car listening to cassette tapes.
