Very nice work, my friend. I’m sorry that I haven’t had the time to fully invest in your project, namely that I don’t know a substantial number of the albums you have reported on. That comes to the most impressive aspect of your project: you listen to a shit ton of albums! And the second, that you somehow have managed to avoid the calcification of musical tastes that is a basic biological fact of age. How did you do that? (Actually, maybe those two should be reversed in order of impressiveness).

I enjoyed the best of Arsies quite a bit, and I have to go back and listen to those BTBAM albums again. They are so long and dense that it’s not the kind of thing I can really give a fair listen in the car or at the gym, which is where I listen to most metal.
