6 NEW BANDS: Nikos Mixas' 666 Pack Review (September 2017)

It’s the September edition of the THE SLUDGELORD’s 666 Pack Review!  Autumn is finally upon us and even though the temps are cooling, the metal is only getting hotter.   So many great albums were released this month and while THE SLUDGELORD is super swamped reviewing all of them, there was still time to review the rookies!  If you’re new to this, each and every month we handpick 6 review submissions and critique them by only using 6 words, then we rate them on a scale from 1 to 666!  Check out our awesome rating scale below: 

1 – Just about as horrid as Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.
2 – Fall means the temperature is cooling off, so is this band… 
3 – Its ok…kind of like anything Slayer puts out these days. 
4 – Your friends like you, so we will like you also. 
5 – Surprisingly good.  Just like whatever your grandma cooks up.   
666THE SLUDGELORD smashes pumpkins while head banging to your latest offering!  

The 666 Pack Review is meant to offer humorous criticism and is not meant to hurt feelings, however, there are no safe spaces here.  THE SLUDGELORD is a picky listener…and doesn’t care what you think of his opinions….
