Chapter Twenty-Eight: Infinite Ballad

This month’s chapter visits themes of timelessness – from The Birthday Massacre’s incredible cover of “The NeverEnding Story,” to Apoptygma Berserk’s “Love Never Dies,” to a certain 37-year-old song risen from the dead by a prominent spot in Netflix’s Stranger Things series. We’ve got a great selection of new and old industrial music to round out the selections as well!
