As another year comes to a close, it's time for another oft-delayed post - this time of Day 1 of the annual ritual that is Season's Beatings. House of Targ played host this year, and things leaned toward the heavy metal, plus a couple of curveballs, starting with some synthetic action courtesy of Devils Machine and Infinity's Astrum in a faceoff for the ages! Here's Infinity's Nick.
