Chocolate Grinder Mix 27
Admittedly, I don’t listen to a lot of contemporary hard rock or metal, a fact that will come as no surprise to those who have listened to my previous mixes, which are dominated by indie rock, hip-hop, and electronic. However, thanks in part to encouragement from my stepbrother and Metalocalypse, I have made a concerted effort to get into it more as of late. This mix presents the fruits of that labor, with eight brain-demolishing noise bombs capped by a couple oddballs that should bring a little levity to the festivities. I must thank Candlelight Records, who were instrumental in helping to put this together, and I’m especially stoked to have been given the nod for Baroness, Converge, and personal childhood heroes Green Jellÿ.
