Staff Infections – January 2024

Happy new year, friends. After a month off, it is time once again for Staff Infections. I hope 2024 finds you all happy and healthy. Myself, I got a little spinal injury for Christmas, so I’m going to keep this intro brief, because sitting at the computer isn’t all that comfortable for me at the moment.

There is not much crossover on the staff playlist this month, so with two appearances apiece, we have a two-way tie for album of the month: the debut album from death metal pioneers Master, and the latest pulverizing grind album, Only in Dade, from Miami’s Shitstorm.

I’m about ready to wrap this sumbitch up, so be sure to listen to the staff-curated Spotify playlist below, and share your own playlist in the comments. I gotta go take some more Advil. You all have a good month.
