Root of All Evil vs Roar of the Underground: Preview to the Jan. 7 Benefit

The Metal Evangelist and Mara the Death took us on a tour of local metal bands as a preview to the KFAI benefit concert happening Saturday, Jan. 7 at the Triple Rock Social Club. We heard from band members, got a tease about a special brew being made for the show, and celebrated metal in many of its forms on a bitter cold Sunday morning. 

Let's try this: It's a partial play list but at least I can list the names of the songs and the artists. So if the information is incomplete, then you'll know it came from the computer and the rest of the info disappeared when the tune finished. But if there's an album title and record label, you'll know I played an actual CD and/or LP.
