  1. Uh… no mention of Pallbearer for next week? 2017 has officially begun now that Heartless by Pallbearer has been released. This is the first album released in 2017 that I’m enjoying. It’s everything I’ve come to like from Pallbearer and more. There is a part in the middle of the album that sounds just like Pink Floyd. I happen to love Pink Floyd. I can’t see Pallbearer not cracking my top 20 list at the end of the year.

    1. Due to a glut of releases, Pallbearer got pushed a couple more weeks. Part of that is just release date for other albums, not making ones released first wait longer. Also, I think I can speak for both us when I say we enjoy Pallbearer, but don’t go back very often. So while we definitely want to hear it, we are a little more interested in other things. – Brian

      1. So if Pallbearer gets delayed a week, does that mean Pallbearer and Mastodon will be reviewed in the same episode?

      2. That would be an epic episode if it had reviews of Pallbearer and Mastodon in the same show.

      3. I agree. Ha ha. The thing is, though, we are trying to balance the shows. We are trying not to stack one episode with “big” releases only to have the following week have all new names. If the labels didn’t decide to release everything between March and April, and spread stuff out more, it would have been helpful.
