  • Kontinuum Killed It! DOOMRIDERS Sucked!

    Húrra, Sunday 23/11: Doomriders, Kontinuum and Mercy Buckets The Mercy Buckets’ performance was a first for me. And a first for their front man as well, it would seem, as he was well winded and nearly unable to speak between songs. But in light of their crushing performance, it was but a minor concern. Their
