Episode 94: Cool Down to Some Smooth Jams

Over this past week, the most of the US was melting like a snowball in Hell. Most of us didn’t find it very pleasant, especially sweating our balls off just going to and from work.  So, today, to celebrate returning to normal summer temperatures (at least here in the Northeast), we bring you another jam packed episode with a whole bunch of new tunes for your aural enjoyment.  Ok, fine…this episode would have happened even if this pass week was nothing special, but whatever. Enjoy it anyway.

  1. -I don’t listen to Avenged Sevenfold either, but I was applauding along with Nick just because Brian gave something a 2.

    -If Power Metal isn’t over the top then is it worth listening to? The best power metal is supposed to be over the top.

    -The headline on MetalSucks regarding The More I See reads: “Mediocre Band Films Video on Tatooine.” They should rename it mediocre band films AWESOME video on Tatooine! I would join any shitty band I could if I was going to get to go to Tatooine. That video even had water vaporators and twin suns, in addition to what looks like Ben Kenobi’s hut.

    -Yes, I skipped the song from Asking Alexandria. You weren’t initially going to review the new album from the originators of heavy metal (Black Sabbath) but you “might” review Asking Alexandria? You gotta get your priorities straight.

    1. – We have a friend/listener who is an Asking Alexandria fan that has already asked about doing a review. If that wasn’t the case, we wouldn’t be thinking about it.

      – Power Metal: you’re right….and thus it is ALL bad
