We Don’t Care

The title here is slightly hyperbolic, but not by much.  This week’s review choices struggled a bit to keep our attention.  Some were better than others, and we certainly had bunch to talk about, so I guess it was all fine in the end.

Sh!t We Missed: Rule of Thirds

We told you the year starts of slow, didn’t we?  So, we have some more goodies from 2015, and this time we have a bunch of finds from scouring Bandcamp! We also have that big, colorful release that ended up on just about everybody’s year end list despite the fact those lists came out before the album did.

Oh, and I almost forgot!!  We have a guest host!!  No, it’s not Kyle.  This one is less experienced in some of the more extreme forms of Metal and Hardcore, so we take a few minutes to teach him a thing or two.  Pay attention because maybe you’ll learn something too.  (Conversely, you may think we’re wrong and have to teach us something. That’s what the comment section is for.)

At Long Lasting Impression

This week marks the return of First Impressions! I know you’re excited…stop trying to hide it. While we may have dropped an album review to fit in the previews, we compensate by playing SEVEN songs this episode!  So, it all balances out in the end.

As anybody who has listened to this show a few times knows, I HATE doing these damn lists.    You and I both know the main reason is because I am extremely indecisive.  However, I also detest them because no matter how long I make the list (Kyle gets angry when I do more than 10) I still feel like I am slighting albums that don’t deserve it.   Then out of the albums I do pick, I have to split hairs over which ones I like more than others only to come up with a list I am not even sure I 100% agree with!  In the end, I have to get something together and just say, “Screw it.  It’s close enough.”

As you will probably notice listening to this week’s show, Kyle seems to think he has broken the space/time continuum, putting us a week ahead at episode 43.  But, alas, he does not have some special super power, and we are back at…well, currently at…42.   And, in this week’s episode, we managed to scrape up four brand new album reviews, hitting a few different metal stylings, including one we aren’t entirely sure we can still count as metal…not in a bad way though.   We also hit the G+ Spot and tell you about the future plans for the actual Episode 43, which will be all about the albums you asked us to check out. (Feel free to keep giving us more suggestions! We’ll keep going back to them for future episodes.)
