#LinkFrogging...here we go again!
The celebrations of good cheer, holiness, and consumerism are over, and it is once again time for METAL!!...in all its shapes and sizes. Lots has happened since our duo last sat down together and they dive right in, tackling both the Ratt/Grohl collaboration and Howard Jones exit from Killswitch Engage. They then offer one last glance into 2011, checking out a few December releases that may have otherwise been overlooked including Black Pyramid 'II'.

As it was, one day was all that was possible this year.
