Things are getting frigid, and I'm not taking it well. And neither is my wallet. Ozzy and Iron Maiden both have tours coming here next year, on top of all the other badass shows! Debating Sonic Temple, as much as I wanted to go with Avantasia playing Chicago two days after that it might be hard to swing. We've got some new releases into rotation this month, with Post Mortal Possession and Horehound both having put out albums this month. We also brought Conflict Cycle into rotation after their show at The Harvest. Read more below.
You can tune in to The Cutting Edge every day from 9am-10, 2pm-3, and 7pm-8 for one hour of the sharpest new metal tracks in the Pittsburgh metal scene. And things get dank around 4:20.
