What: Split 7" EP of blackened doom metal released on Init Records.
Where: Minneapolis, MN/Denver, CO
Why: Twin Cities occultists join forces with Denver hate-stoners to make one of the year's best 7" records.
[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]
