Trappist – Ancient Brewing Tactics Review

If there are three things I enjoy, it’s good beer, good metal, and bad puns. Ancient Brewing Tactics touches on all three. So let’s crack open a cold imperial IPA and see what we have

Pig Destroyer – Head Cage Review

It’s been six years since Pig Destroyer released Book Burner. Add the additional five years between that one and 2007’s Phantom Limb, and we’re now 11 years removed from what remains as the band’s creative
