Hello HEAVY Metal Munchkins,

This week we slew moral beasts with Dragonland ahead of their first ever tour.

We picked metaphorical fruit with The Pineapple Theif and learned about their upcoming release, "‘Dissolution" which will be released on August 31.

In the Fresh Flesh section, we chat to Skorched, Wildheart and Summit three bands you might want to check out!

Until next week, stay HEAVY!
Carl "BossMann", Director
