Conceived and created by Ken K. during late summer/early fall and launched on November 14, 2012, Inhale the Heavy, or ItH for short, is a blog that primarily covers heavy metal music by way of offerings, features, streams and news.

My Vinyl Offering, where artists and musicians get up close and personal by sharing the most cherished parts of their physical media collection, was an early ItH favorite among viewers. Simply shortened to Offerings, this feature continues to be published at Inhale the Heavy.

A standalone site, My Vinyl Offering, was created as a platform for Ken K. to share his personal physical media collection and musings. Check that out here.

Sometimes fast. Sometimes slow. Always goddamn loud!
