We also cover some sad/weird stories like the passing of Viraemia bassist Scott Plummer, and Static-X doing a tour with their vocalist replacing Wayne Static wearing a Wayne Static-but-with-dead-skin-looking mask. Yeah. Also this Magic: The Gathering trailer with an emotional Linkin Park cover, and some random live clip of Metallica with Cliff. Then cool people time with, you guessed it, Santa Clarita Diet, Arrested Development, Sekiro, Hitman 2, and Texorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia. Enjoy!

What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To – 11/18/16

For those who missed our last installment, We post biweekly updates covering what the staff at Heavy Blog have been spinning.
