GMD Poll: Top Ten Albums of 1984

He sliding into those DM's for free promo?

These lists are always in flux tbf. I've noticed that I've been going to Fist Held High over other trad records lately


I've never actually talked to him, but he likes some of my posts. I accept anyone unless they're being creepy or have nothing to do with metal. He seems like a nice old dude though.
