The Week In Metal - Week Of Apr 20 - 26, 2020

Wow, what a week it was! Over 50 new releases hit the closed store shelves, not to be touched because of the virus that has over 99% survival rate... but I digress. Thankfully, online businesses are booming with downloads and streams running at the pick levels. From big names, well established artists to unknown and up-and-comers, last week delivered everything a music connoisseur could ever ask for, so spent your off time wisely by discovering new forms of the blasphemous art.
