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….

I Hope You Didn’t Like Your Skull Too Much…

…because Meshuggah is going to f**king crush it, then the rest of this week’s line-up is just going to stomp the remains and/or dance in the ash and dust.  Yeah, we have some heavy and just good tunes this week.
