    Episode 2.3 - "The Sound Of Scars" Film Review

    Episode 2.3 - "The Sound Of Scars" Film Review

    Brooklyn, NY's LEGENDARY Life of Agony has spent their pandemic downtime putting the finishing touches on their documentary feature film, "The Sound Of Scars". The Director's screening went live on Friday 4/16, and Raevyn bought a ticket. We talk about the film, and LOA's deep impact on the metal community over the last 30-ish years, and of course our SLM Playlist picks are from the iconic "River Runs Red" album.
    In addition, we bring back the Patron Saint of Underdogs with Melissa Soqui, a member of Perpetual Movement Fitness's Barbell Club, who recently competed in her first weightlifting comp with zero expectations...and won!

    This episode we're talking about the return of the Crossfit Open, and Raevyn's return to practicing what she preaches.
    In addition, we have another silly story involving our good friends Ron and Liz, along with the Three Little Pigs.
    Not sure what happened with the sound quality this week, but hopefully it won't be too distracting.

    Episode 11 - Home Gyms and Cellar Darling

    Strength Love Metal is back after a long (and emotional) hiatus. We have a sum up of the craziness that threatened to end Crossfit, how my girlfriend and I are handling fitness in the time of Covid, an unexpected surprise from one of my favorite progressive metal bands, and staying grounded and connected through music and fitness when it seems like the world around us is falling apart. I hope you guys missed me as much as I missed you.
