If it seems like I always mention how much good music has been released during the previous month that’s because that’s probably correct. The fact is that we’ve been enjoying an insane outpouring of music for years now and these posts, keyed as they are to some sort of “summary”…

Stray From The Path – Internal Atomics

It’s easy to overlook the fact that Stray From The Path have been releasing music for nearly two decades. Their Long Island hardcore roots might seem a million miles away from their globally-approved, for the most part, rapped metal attack, but they’ve honestly never ahem strayed too far from their…
