Choose a Side

We have some really good discussions this week, and a bunch of differing opinions. To the latter, Nick and Brian only completely agree on one of these albums.  So, we want YOU to get in on the conversation in the comments on the site or social media and choose a side!

And remember – Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

It’s a week before Christmas and all through the podcast we were stirring, bitching, and moaning about making lists.  I mean, we go through this every year, so you think we would just get over it. Anyway, as in years past, we have a few other short lists like Best Artwork (which you can see below), Most Disappointing, and Worst Albums. Enjoy these treats this week, and come back next week for the 2016 grand finale!

Also, this episode officially marks FIVE YEARS of this here podcast.  We’d like to thank all of our listeners, whether you listen regularly or just when you see an album that intrigues you. We really appreciate you all!
