Episode 419: Protest the Hero, Vampire, Let Us Prey 2020 Album Reviews + Inside Out Music Showcase

In Which We Try to Make Things a Little Less Shitty

If you think about it, we help in our own way by entertaining and informing heavy music fans such as yourself. Even if we only provide temporary mental relief, it’s something, right?  Well we want to do more, and we’d like you to help…and also help us entertain and inform!

What the hell are we talking about?  At the top of the episode – and on THIS PAGE – we explain how The Sideshow Podcast is going to contribute Crew Nation, how you can help, and have some fun with us in the process.

And remember – Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

InsideOut Music


  1. I’ve been listening to Palimpsest by Protest The Hero. I can echo pretty much everything you said. I’ll add that maybe not all songs stand out to me on this album, but the best tracks are very good – those being the first track “The Migrant Mother”, the last track “Rivet”, and “All Hands.”

  2. Whaaaaaaaat is this Crew Nation thing?!?? Oh, there will certainly be some money coming Crew Nation’s way. But the possibilities are huge. If I include trolling, then the possibilities are endless! You mean I could make you listen to Manowar again? Or you’ll even sit through 2 hours and 40 minutes of Hamilton? (though there is a possibility that one of you already did that this past weekend watching it on Disney Plus). All I know is that for this Crew Nation donation that I am not going to throw away my shot!

    1. Have at it Bob! We have already been trolled, but it’s for a good cause and we knew it would come. Just keep in mind we are still doing the regular show (and have to review Fear Inoculum) so if you want a thoughtful review, something epically long might not be your best choice. But if that is what you want, we’ll commit!
