Catharsis

You Did it Wrong

So why only two albums reviews? Well, as many of you may expect, we have a lot to say about the new Machine Head album, so we wanted to give enough time to that without running the show too long.  Make sure you stick around for the whole show though..there’s good music there. Oh, and we also discuss the production value of August Burns Red‘s remix/remaster of Messengers.

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.
