Podcast #251: Buff (Pt. 2)

Ronnie Atkins (Nordic Union) joins the lads for a chinwag about all things metal (and Nordic).One of the show's favorite local craft breweries is the fantastic Buffalo Bayou Brewery - who just broke ground on their new brewery space. G&R are totally looking forward to it, but until then they decided to do a tour and taste some great one of a kind beers while they talk metal as per usual, ya savvy? In fact, they talked so damn much you're getting the second of a two-parter. So kick back and imagine you're drinking suds with the guys as they try to avoid getting eaten by dogs. Hey, it could happen. Horns up!

Next, Rags talks to Pretty Maids vocalist Ronnie Atkins about his latest Nordic Union project and their new album, Second Coming, as well as what it's like to record outside of Pretty Maids. If you like what you hear, please show the band some love by heading over to their page at Frontiers Music.
