Chapter Thirty: Dismantling Your Heart

There’s an eclectic mix of songs in this month’s chapter! We start off with a couple of classic selections from Dismantled, then visit a bunch of different genres: Post-alt-rock from Love in Reverse, a sweet retro-tinged steampunk ballad from Steam Powered Giraffe, industrial hits from KMFDM and Static-X, and a whole bunch more.
