And then I discovered atheism.
I was raised Protestant. It was easy going. My mother never /made/ me go to church. She never /made/ me read the bible. She never /made/ me do anything religious. I flirted with the religion a lot in my youth and then eventually pushed religion into the background for many years. I occasionally toyed with paganism, druidism, and lots of other “almost-but-not-quite” religions.
And then I discovered atheism.

When you think of heavy metal, what comes to mind? For me it's pentagrams, riffs, and lots of black shirts. Lots and lots of black shirts. Another thing that comes to mind is /community/. A brotherhood (if you will). Metal has a penchant the world over for accepting people of any race, class, creed, or religion.
But metal still has an issue with gender.
WOMAN II raised /£1300/ on day one. That's 1400 euros, $1700 USD, $2222 CAD.
I am exceedingly proud of this community. Your generosity has brought medical aid to those who really need it.
Stay tuned, post-day one sales will be tallied and donated at the end of the month.
WOMAN II is here.
44 tracks, 3 hours, and 100% of day one sales are being donated to Doctors Without Borders. Featuring tracks from GHOUL, NECKBEARD DEATHCAMP, REDBAIT, GAYLORD, and many more.
