Shreddin’ Slopes and Guitars

Sorry this one is up so late.  Your hosts went skiing over the long weekend*, so we were incidentally slacking on our podcast duties.  But, hey, it is here, we still haven’t missed a week since the start, and there are three albums for you to check out with us, so all is well.

Snow, Bourbon, and Metal

We continue digging into 2017 with some heavy sh*t this week, and it does not disappoint.  I mean, rating results varied, but overall, it was a solid week…better than last week, if we do say so ourselves. Also, I promise this title makes sense once you listen to the show.

Short and Bitter

I know we haven’t gotten to 2017 releases yet, but we did do four releases this week.  Why four? Because they are short so we had the time.  And when I say short, I mean that all of these releases combined run only 10 minutes longer than one of our albums from last week.  There’s some good stuff in here, so get listening and grind these out with us!
