On the Heavy Session at 11PM AEDT @ 3CR and online



I'm a fan of this "metal" music the kids crow about these days. So I'm going on the air to serve it to them, hot and fast!

Together with James, we're putting on a Fully Greek Mate special honoring the Rotting Christ Aussie tour. Two solid hours of metal, meze and awful, awful accents. Tune in online or 855AM 3CR in Melbourne at 11PM AEDT!

A danceable G.Y.S.T holds the line as only their last handful of cuts do any advancing.

Are they victorious?
