The only thing more brutal than a death metal show at Burt's Tiki Lounge is the changing leaves of autumn


Dear GYA, I love fall and I feel like every death metal fan should love fall too. When you think about it, nothing is more brutal than stepping on thousands of leaf corpses that have been savagely decapitated from trees. Sometimes, I like to pick up a single golden leaf and become overwhelmed with the harsh reality that its skeleton has changed colors because of the merciless grip of decomposition. Also, fall is fun because of the cozy sweaters and pumpkin patches. - Lars Gormf, Salt Lake City
