Erk FM: Metal Monday 173 – Australia Day Celebration

Welcome to Erk FM: Metal Monday episode 173. As this episode is released, it is Australia Day in Australia. For the last 2 years, Erk has been outside Australia thanks to a certain heavy metal cruise on a certain boat on a certain ocean so any Australia Day type episodes would have been recorded with Erk outside Australia on the day of release. So to make up for that, Erk has an epic length all Australian hard rock & metal episode for you.
