Grind My Gears 2.0 – Test Launch

Since I started writing Grind My Gears, I've always focused on one project or band at a time. This has given me free reign to spew curse words and horrible imagery by the bucket load and I am inherently grateful to the editors and staff here for allowing me this. However, I feel like this column can step up its game. The other regular features on Heavy Blog are a cut above and such, from here on out, myself and whichever poor bastard I rope into helping me will try to match those standards. We'll look at fresh grind compilations and releases, love letters to classic grind records and interviews and conversations with some of the cream of the modern crop. Maybe more, maybe less, I guess we'll play it by ear (because it's grind). Without further fanfare, please welcome your own damn self to Grind My Gears 2.0.
