    As usual, thanks a million for the fantastic music, Tina!

    It seems that this time, however, your suggestions (asides from the "InstruMetal" ones) will not help me discover new music, per se, as I'm actually ALREADY following everyone recommended in this edition, except for, as I said, the artists in the InstruMetal category.

    Well, at least that proves that you and I are on the same wavelength regarding great Bandcamp artists, eh?

    Anyway, have a fantastic week, Tina, and I hope that I can hold out until next week's Sound Sunday...

    Until then, Ciao!
