Lucky Number Seven

We hit another milestone!  Seven years straight of a couple of Metal fans sharing their thoughts on new Metal albums.  Sure, not all of them have been posted “on time,” but for 364 weeks in a row we have posted episodes, working around natural disasters, vacations, and commitments to our actual jobs..  And this is about as much special attention as this is gonna get.

Bring the Pain and Kick Out the Jams

We’re trying out something new this week with titling the episodes after getting some SEO pointers from my buddy in Deadtide.  I guess time will tell if it really helps.  ANYWAY…this week’s show is pretty meat-and-potatoes with your not-so-dynamic duo of hosts ripping through the standard four album reviews. The music however, is largely not as straight forward as the show itself, and quite varied in style…which i guess is standard for us at this point, isn’t it?  No matter – there is some good taters in here, so get listening!
