Like Having Sex While Camping

Not only do we have an overload of music for you this week, most of it is really heavy and pretty fucking intense. Even better is we like or love all of it!  Hopefully you do too!

P.S.  As you heard last week, in this episode and may have read in comments recently, Nick and I overlooked a few releases when talking about Most Disappointing, Best Debut, etc. You should know by now we aren’t always the sharpest crayons in the box. Well, adding to that list, we neglected to mention an EP we both enjoyed – Welcome to Poetry 201 by The Nietzsche. (Check out our 4 star review HERE if you missed it.) Sorry about that guys!

Sleep is for the Weak

If you feel like Brian sounds “tired as fuck” in the episode, you’re not alone…Nick already pointed that out.  You are not wrong either…I was shot.  I still made it through this jam-packed and kinda long episode, giving you 100% of the 50-60% capacity I was at because the show must go on….

Diversity within Diversity

One of these things is a lot less like the others, but those other have a lot going on within themselves, so it all kinda works out in the end.  Didn’t follow that? Then just get listening and it will make sense by the end of the show.

What’s Thick, Heavy, and Feels Oh So Good?

Answer – the production on 3/4 of what we cover this week.
Anyway, last week we previewed a new Trap Them song and then commented we can hopefully review the album soon.  Well guess what? We can and we did. In addition to that, we have (spoiler alert) another awesome album…and one that missed the mark worse than a Stormtrooper. The new Car Bomb song almost makes up for it though.
