Another month goes by and we give you another month’s worth of staff picks and playlists from some of the folks at Hellbound. Feel free to add your own picks of the month in the comments!
Listening to: Born Again, Deluxe Edition by Black Sabbath. Bill
Ward, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler are joined on this fine platter of
metal by no less than Deep Purple legend Ian Gillan. It’s my favourite
Sabbath album and Zero The Hero is one great metal song. On
this splendid edition there is an unreleased track called The
Fallen, which is splendid, and a very good live show from the Reading
Festival. To accompany it I am reading a very good book by Martin
Popoff called Born Again! Black Sabbath In The Eighties And
Nineties, which I highly recommend. A great antidote to the isolated
times we find ourselves “living” in.
Listening to: Dumal – The Lesser God
New release: Necrot – Mortal, out August 28th, 2020 via Tankcrimes Records
Non-Metal: SNFU – Something Green and Leafy This Way Comes (Epitaph Records, 1993)
