BAZ Friday LXXII – Underground Reco For Underground Maniacs

3 min read

Did this week go by so fast or was it my impression? Oh my. The life that we have at this moment due to this world situation and some countries’ restrictions looked that the days are no longer so big and time is passing through our eyes… I didn’t want to talk about it, but it’s true. But well, at least I still have my Metal music to cheer me up.
