As for metal, I went through the stereogum best metal album and listened to a few different albums there. Some of the ones I liked:
Inter Arma: Sky Burial
Wolvserpent: Perigaea Antahkarana
Skeletonwitch: Serpents Unleashed
In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
- H. L. Mencken
