Throw a middle finger to the last few days — it’s the weekend and your boss, your coworkers, and the obscenely large amount of unread emails in your work email inbox have zero power over you today. Saturdays are alright for three things: inebriation (within moderation), hangin’ out with pals, and fightin’.
Actually, add a fourth thing to that list: checking out MetalSucks’ top stories of the week. For example, if you somehow lived under a rock the last few days, you can learn about how Phil Anselmo’s past racist actions have caused Pantera shows to be canceled in Germany and Austria. You can also find out how grossly uninspiring Ghost’s latest version of “Spillways,” featuring Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot, really was. (It was really bad.)
There’s a whole smorgasbord of articles to check out below. And while you’re listening to our Top Tracks of the Week playlist (now on Apple Music), you can catch up on the last week and then look around for even more content you might have missed.
