I wanted to get the announcement up so I actually haven’t listened to it yet. The vast majority of the projects here are new to me, but I have no question it will be worth your money and your listening time. The fire occurred on January 8th, and now 12 days later this release is available. I hope people will check it out. Many thanks to Mr. Elkins of The Auditor for wrangling this together.
The Gruntsplatter track, is called “A Frightful Century.” It’s the first new Gruntsplatter track I have recorded in several years. I still sound like me.
