    Cassette=Metal. This is easily the most purely metal act in recent memory.

        Really? I didn’t think anyone was doing this anymore. Who has recently?

    Dude no way. How appropriate of them. I WANTS! Although I’ll have no way to actually play it. Any of you PRPians have an old extra cassette Walkman lying around?

    That’s pretty cool. I still have an old car with a tape deck in it. Maybe I should pick this up! I use the cassette adapter to listen to cd’s when I drive it. Wayne’s world!
