Backlog: 608.

Too lazy to do the full backlog data this week. We'll do it again next week.

Observations? "Powerviolence" is a stupid name for a subgenre, but "fast and furious metallic hardcore" is one of my go-to jams over the last couple of years and Nails are (were?) really good at it.

Zedi Forder is the wild card of the week: if you're into Pain of Salvation, Jolly, etc.? Check Isolation out, it's probably got something to your taste on it and it is (was?) pay-what-you-want at Bandcamp when I picked it up a couple of months ago.

Pointless side opinion: I no longer give a fraction of a shit about separating EPs from full-lengths on best-of lists. I never really have, but more than ever, 2020 has driven home that there are so many more significant things to do than worry about all of those arbitrary bullshit distinctions.

Have you managed to spend any time with the new Unleash the Archers? Fun stuff!
