Come Together 

Amongst this week’s bands we have talented show offs, a “supergroup,” and a band that probably needs a mouthguard. Also, Nick fought through the elements, construction sites, and a car fire to get to Brian’s house to record this show.  Well, not specifically to do that, but it happened.

First off, I apologize for this first and likely only time we have the country-naming Manowar. Granted we don’t play a song, but still. Anyway, we have a full episode five album reviews with some jams for 60% of them. We also share and discuss a wide range of news from the sad to the unfortunate to the strange.
