Call of the Void

Answering the Call

What happens when Slam goes beyond Slam?  When Crust/Grind/Metallic Hardcore steps aside the style a little?  Or when Black Metal overpowers everything else?  We have those answers and more in this episode!

Mostly Comfortable

All of this week’s bands are seem pretty comfortable in their own skin.  We found, however, a couple need to shed their skin and grow, one is growing just fine, another is in a possible confused puberty stage, while yet another may be regressing in a way that is making us uncomfortable. To further this forced theme of comfort, make sure you listen to Nick’s live review for some, um, interesting moments at Trap Them’s last show.

This week’s episode is brought to you by the letter ‘C’. Why?  Well, it just started going that way so we made it a thing.  If you have requests for any other letter themes (preferably NOT Q, X, Y or Z), let us know in the comments and we’ll see if we can work that in sometime.

Also, this video is semi-fitting and still amuses me.
