December Heavy Hitters Spotify Playlist ’23

A new playlist has been posted with a nod toward my Midwestern roots featuring Carbellion, Wraith, To The Dogs, Olathia, and Deathwish. Dungeon Weed makes the list with two tracks — Look for their interview here at Cosmic Monolith.

If you’re into RPGs like I am the mighty Owlbear is a band you need to know. They’ve been tapped to appear at Legions Of Metal fest ’24. You can never go wrong with metal and gaming. Liege Lord and Cirith Ungol have been announced for Blades Of Steel Metal Festival ’24 so they earned a spot here and Tailgunner released what might be one of the best straight forward, melodic metal records of ’23: ‘Guns For Hire.’
