Wyrd Ways Rock Show CCCXXV – The Behemoth

So then… the first show of 2016 is The Behemoth. Over 6 hours of quality music. Yes, you did read that correctly – OVER SIX HOURS. That’s one in the eye (or should that be “ear”?) for the moaning-minis who bang on and on about “Metal isn’t as good as it was in the 80’s/90’s”. Sit them down and force them to listen to this one. It’s subdivided into chapters over on Mixcloud, so you can show the recalcitrants the error of their ways by playing them stuff from their favourite genre.

The next show, by the way, is the first of the Top Ten Albums of 2015, which will include Dr Jim’s contribution. By the time this show topped five hours, and was still going strong, I thought it wise to delay the Hammer Of Retribution for the next show.
