Altrok Radio's Underground Pick Of The Week

Each Week, Jeff Raspe picks an outstanding track from a brand-new album. This week, the pick is:

In The Grinder:

Altrok keeps a running list of new songs that get played every week on the show, until we've pretty much ground them into the dirt. Each week, one song will leave the Grinder to make room for a new one. It's shameless, but it's honest. This week in the Grinder:
