We are kicking The Sideshow Podcast’s second year off right with a jam packed episode featuring a brand new intro and outro, courtesy of By Night, four new album reviews, two live reviews, and an interview with Skeletonwitch bassist Eric Linger! We are also debuting our new rating system, which switches from our old By/Try/Skip to a more versatile 1-5 rating.
There are some other new things on the site too, which you may have already noticed. First off, we will now provide you with a list of releases for each month. It may not include everything but we promise that Brian puts together a pretty extensive rundown. We also debut our new merch store! We have some great tee shirts, hoodies and girlie shirts for sale, as well as a sweet coffee mug. I mean, can you think of a better way to start your day? Ok…don’t answer that. Anyway, we have some other fun things permanently planted in the menus like our drinking game and our rules for proper concert etiquette. So, take the time to look around and soak it all in. If there is anything else you guys and girls want to see on our site (or in our store, or on the show), just let us know, and we will see what we can do!
Reviews: As I Lay Dying – Awakened; Revocation – Teratogenesis; Monuments – Gnosis; This Or The Apocalypse – Dead Years
I like the new rating system, but I might already sense a new addition to the drinking game: every time an album gets a 4 from Brian, a 3 from Nick, and a 1 from Kyle.
Since you reviewed the new As I Lay Dying: Brian, did you make it to Santos Party House for their album release? If so, how was that?
Yeah, we might have to add a rule like that. We’ll see what things are like once Kyle comes back.
I did not get to the AILD show. After the epic weekend of shows and paintball, I just didn’t have it in me to venture over there. Hopefully some other good show will hit that venue soon and I can finally see what it is like.
Also…this might be the shortest comment you ever left on the site. lol
Ha. I’m not sure if my short comment was due to personal things going on (work, travel), or if the fact that Kyle wasn’t there means there were less controversial things to comment upon.
Yes, there is one more thing I’d like added to your site: a link to this week’s episode so I can listen to it.
Seriously though, sorry about that. I had a late gig last night and thought I pushed it back to publish at 4PM so I had time to produce the show today. In my sleepiness, I accidentally auo published it at 4AM.
