Episode #39: A Grave Death For The Blood Witch

Episode #39: A Grave Death For The Blood WitchEl Goro and SonOfOdin start the party off with a new folk metal outing from Korpiklaani. Once the booze starts hitting, it’s time to enhance the weirdness with some blackened avant-garde from Sigh. In the indie segment, they take their first trip to Indonesia to check out the death metal scene there with Exhumation’s second album. Finally, they return to Sweden to look at the prototype for both black and Viking metal with Bathory’s transitional album.
