Repeat Offenders

As much as we love finding new artists, we also love following ones we’ve found already. Well, this week is chock full of those bands, all but one of which we have reviewed multiple times before.  We haven’t loved all the previous output either, so get listening to see if we think these are the latest and greatest.

Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One…

A podcast reviews a few albums, and none of the metallic styles of the albums are similar, but there is one that is way different than the others.  When they reviewed, the number ratings are pretty close to each other, if not the same.  There’s also a review of a single that doesn’t get played during the show.  How did you not stop me?  You must be new because this should sound very familiar.


The Black Dahlia Murder – Nightbringers (Metal Blade)
36 Crazyfists – Lanterns (Spinefarm)
SoundingTrepanation (Dark Trail)

First Impression:
All Pigs Must Die – “Hostage Animal” from Hostage Animal out October 27, 2017 through Southern Lord

As you might be able to gather from the episode title and a discussion at the beginning of last week’s episode, a certain someone is back on the show this week, and as always, is firing on all cylinders…however few he may have. Fear not, though, as Nick and Brian are still here to try to reign him in and keep things as normal as possible.  Love or hate him, you should stick around for the new music that goes along with our five album reviews, as well as our rundown of a few first impressions.
