Dead Rhetoric.com Week in Review October 4 – 10, 2014

Saturday, 11th October 2014

Ahh, the joys of a long weekend. Let’s face it, with a long weekend comes more time for the things that we enjoy most: metal right? Well, that and dealing with getting everything ready for the rapidly approaching winter season (for us northeasterners at least). Just think, before you know it we’ll be posting all those year-end lists and we’ll be ready for the entrance of 2015! – Kyle McGinn
