Recommendation of the Week

I recently got the Last Lights discography, No Past, No Present, No Future (review coming soon), and that gets my highest recommendation. Also check out that Unholy stream; those guys are underrated. I can't wait to hear the new Narrows album this week we well. Lastly, I'm glad to hear that Swarm of the Lotus is back, so everyone throw on some of their stuff. I suggest The Sirens of Silence.
