As space rovers and voyagers test the vastness of our solar system, heavy metal explorers are already light years ahead. Looking to the stars and bringing back visions of cosmic creation, horror, and power, this week’s metal history lesson features metal from across the galaxy by Voivod, Satyricon, Assassin, Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, Cathedral, Gojira, Inquisition, and more! In space, no one will hear you scream…
