Sick Music for (Hopefully Not) Sick People

I usually put something funny here, but this time i am going to reiterate something from the top of the episode – A lot of industries are getting hit hard, and it will only get worse before it gets better.  Small/indie bands – particularly Metal bands – are going to have it bad.  A lot of bands we follow make their living on the road, pushing their albums, selling merch, and now have their tours are canceled or postponed. I am sure you have seen many write how financially devastating this is.

S0, if you have been putting off buying a shirt, vinyl, digital download, whatever, NOW is the time to buy (if you are able). Even constantly streaming your favorite bands will help.  It’s going to take the whole community keep these bands afloat.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.  Help each other.

We Don’t Care

The title here is slightly hyperbolic, but not by much.  This week’s review choices struggled a bit to keep our attention.  Some were better than others, and we certainly had bunch to talk about, so I guess it was all fine in the end.

The Great Dividers

Our scores may have come close to each other, but ours views of 2/3 of these albums are a bit different from each other…which is something that seems to be happening a little more now. (It also makes for a good cop-out on the episode title.)
