Audiotopsy – Natural Causes (Napalm)

Audiotopsy may be a new name, but in it there are two former members of Mudvayne (one who was also in Hellyeah) and one member of Skrape. Initially this piqued my interest given that I thought it might contain Ryan… Continue Reading →

Coal Chamber, Soil, The Defiled, Dope – Manchester Ritz, 30/5/15
