Getting Into Gear
Among the album reviews, First Impression, and live review we have for you this week, Nick and I had a little sidebar chat about headphones. We mention our gear sometimes but, after an experience this week, we felt the need to stress the importance of decent personal listening equipment. We hope you enjoy the talk (and feel free to participate via comments) but if you really don’t care, I will take this time to remind you that we include chapter skips.
Byzantine – The Cicada Tree (Metal Blade)
Desultory – Through Aching Aeons (Pulverised Records)

Desultory – Through Aching Aeons
I’m confused about the Byzantine release. I funded it on pledge music. Am I supposed to have gotten the album by now? I never got an email from pledge music and when I log on to the site the details are sparse. How did you get the album already? I know you get promos and such, so did you get a promo or did you get your regular release? I need to get the release so I can resolve this.
Well played pun, sir.
And yes, we got it as promo. And, actually, you should have received your digital download this morning, in it’s lossless glory. – Brian
That’s cool that you got the promo. I did get the email this morning saying my download of the Byzantine album is ready but I’m too busy to listen to it because I’m gearing up to see Iron Maiden tonight!
