March is here, and the madness is catching up to me. Changes in management over at The River's Edge meant that we had to switch up accounts when our domain expired, and it took longer than we anticipated to switch it from GoDaddy to Wix. So sorry this is going out so late. This month is going to be wild though. I will be heading down to Raleigh on vacation, going to visit friends and we'll be catching the Experience Hendrix tour while down there. Dave Mustaine, Joe Satriani, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Johnson and more all playing classic Jimi Hendrix tunes. And the following week I'm taking a work trip to Florida. May Satan bless my travels. Read about what else happened over February, including a new single from Reign of Z, a Greywalker music video, and welcoming Aphotica and Amavasya into rotation.
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.
The Crucible Project
