asking Alexandria

Over this past week, the most of the US was melting like a snowball in Hell. Most of us didn’t find it very pleasant, especially sweating our balls off just going to and from work.  So, today, to celebrate returning to normal summer temperatures (at least here in the Northeast), we bring you another jam packed episode with a whole bunch of new tunes for your aural enjoyment.  Ok, fine…this episode would have happened even if this pass week was nothing special, but whatever. Enjoy it anyway.

We have a solid show for you this week.  Good discussion, no fights, no real tangents, just good talk of heavy music. The reviews make for some good discussions based on their respective types of metal, which range from Folk to Doom/Gothic. The First Impressions alone run the gamut from Black/Folk/Progressive Metal to whatever you categorize Stone Sour as, so that keep things fresh as well.  Oh, and we take a few quick stabs at Five Finger Death Punch.  Why do they even get mentioned, you ask?  Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out.
