You know what they say; fashion is cyclical. That means things like the lava lamp, or sagging pants are due to have their second moments in the sun. It’s expected. But the specter of nuclear annihilation, pyramids of human skulls, and the kind of general apocalyptic mayhem that tormented Sarah Connor throughout Terminator 2: Judgement Day? We didn’t see that one coming.
Anyway, peace and prosperity are out, air raid sirens, first strike scenarios, and acceptable losses are back. So it’s time to jump ahead of the curve, and gear up. Joggers just aren’t going to cut it in the post civilizational wasteland; they don’t have nearly enough pockets, for one thing.
There’s one and only one soundtrack for a scenic trip to the pits of hell, metal, but not the type of spandex, teased hair, scarves tied to the mic stand Spinal Tap stuff you might be expecting. We’ve dusted off one of our old trashing mixtapes, complete with hand-sketched demons, to provide the appropriate aural accompaniment to an eternity of fire.
