Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One…

A podcast reviews a few albums, and none of the metallic styles of the albums are similar, but there is one that is way different than the others.  When they reviewed, the number ratings are pretty close to each other, if not the same.  There’s also a review of a single that doesn’t get played during the show.  How did you not stop me?  You must be new because this should sound very familiar.

Darkness in Many Forms

Atmospheric and brooding.  Gothic and creepy. Venomous and aggressive. These are just some of the ways we get to hear the dark this week.  Generally speaking, they are all enjoyable, it just comes down to what you prefer.  If you’re not sure, just stick through he show and try them all!

Just Different Enough

Don’t you just love when an album is immediate?  When it is familiar, yet still fresh?  When it plays on some of your favorite things without sounding exactly like something you have heard before?  If you answered “no” to any of these questions, just come back for 313.

States of the Art

We teased doing this a few episodes ago, and guess what? We actually did it!  Did what you ask?Your hosts dug through Bandcamp (a process which we discuss) to find some rad bands from their respective states, and we pit them against each other in a battle to the death!  Errr, I mean, we made each other listen to them and we reviewed them…ya know, like we do.
