Chapter Twenty-Three: Mystery & Sanctuary

The last Chapter of 2021 gets very interesting very quickly. Ed’s selected a roster of industrial rock tracks that have ties to grunge from bands like God Lives Underwater and Kill Switch… Klick. Justin’s sharing pieces on the theme of sanctuary and safety from artists that include Covenant and The Cult. Topping it off, a listener submission that may just be the “most mysterious song on the internet.” Can our hosts crack the mystery? Probably not, but it’ll be fun to see them try!
