Thanks metalmayhem, that means alot!

I haven't been around as much as I'd like and the review crew has expanded so much that I find many of the albums I like are reviewed by the regulars before I can get to them. Hoping to contribute more but life has been pretty crazy from '07 to present.

Thanks for reading mm!
