DotW 134 April Fools Special: Guilty Pleasures

DotW 134: Guilty Pleasures

In this episode we’re going to play for you some selected tracks from our ‘Guilty Pleasures’ list of music that, while we enjoy it (and possibly even purchased it) we aren’t so willing to drag these tracks out when our Metal brothers and sisters are over listening to some tunes.

We’ve each selected 5 tracks to share with you, so tune in and hang on – it’s going to get interesting!
