Opethian Transitions

In this episode we come up with ideas on how to be better at social media, review some rad music, and have a long-overdue discussion about Opeth with fan and friend Sideshow Bob.  Pretty productive show, right?!

You may also notice a review that seems out of place.  Why did we do it? Go to THIS PAGE to find out how you can help this podcast contribute to Crew Nation and make us review whatever you want.

In Search of Self

As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe).  We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others.  For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out.

Moving Violation

As we shared through social media, this episode comes to you late because Brian got a new place and Nick helped him move all weekend.  Instead of slighting you awesome listeners with a quick show just to get it done, we made you anxiously wait for the real deal. So without further delay, here it is!

New Year, Same Show

Per usual, we are kicking off the new year by reviewing some albums we missed last year. However we are also kicking off a new feature we will be doing all year, which we just decided to name “Bands Across America.” Every week (until the year-end episodes), we are going to feature a band from each of the 50 states.  This week has a band from the first state to enter the union – Delaware.
