I can’t tell you how tired I am writing record reviews. I get that way come December after nearly 12 months of writing 4-5 pieces a week, and yeah, I’m sure you feel really bad for me. I’m just drained and burned out, but good news is starting next week, we begin recapping 2018, which was a really good year for metal. Lots of good stuff came out this year, tons of memorable shows, but that all will come back out over the next few weeks. Today, we give you some of the killer stuff we heard in November (though a few of our favorite records from Horehound and Arête are not yet on Spotify, but go listen to both right now!), and it’s a pretty diverse collection of stuff. Well, I have to get a tooth pulled from my skull tomorrow, so I’m going to go worry. But enjoy this list. And think about me bleeding from the mouth.
