The Metal Scholar's Weekly Listening List (28th October 2019)

The Clocks Have Gone Back And The Weather Has Gone Back To The Ice Age

I can tell you something, I was very thankful for the extra hour in bed I received on Saturday night that's for sure! At last British Autumn/Winter has begun and the weather has happily complied this year, by not having summer like days in October. With all the horror and thrills coming at you this week it's always good to make sure you have the right soundtrack, at The Lost Boys and Trick Or Treat will agree, rock and metal is perfect for the spooky season, so without further ado, here are some recommendations for your night of evil and darkness!

Throwback Of The Week

This week's throwback takes me back to the Autumn/Winter of 2009/10. This album had already been out a year but I was going through a massive phase of watching all the Saw films with my best friend and we would always have sleepover's, drink an unhealthy amount of energy drinks and roam around the small village and town nearby, usually at night as we enjoyed spooking ourselves. We used to have to walk through this industrial estate which had a meat processing plant in it that looked like a Saw-esque warehouse. We often imagined that there would be Saw style traps in there and this album and band would be the soundtrack, performing live while you were fighting for your life. Kids aye, wild imaginations. Anyway, this weeks throwback is;

Slipknot (🇺🇸) - All Hope Is Gone (Roadrunner)
