Brown Acid: Gimme Metal Vinyl Club Edition

In 2015, the world was introduced to Brown Acid: The First Trip. Fast forward to 4/20/2024, there have been eighteen trips, each one a wild ride through the best of '60s and '70s heavy rock. As the founder of Gimme Metal, I took on the daunting task of distilling the essence of this series into a single LP. The result? Eleven killer tracks for this month’s vinyl of the month.

Retro Review: Worm's Foreverglade in the GMVC!

Mixing metal genres can be tricky alchemy. Each listener brings multiple sets of preferences, prejudices, and expectations to the table.
