45 Seconds from Awesome

We have a good dose of heavy for you this episode, including the highly anticipated new album from Gojira.  Unlike most times when promo materials say  “highly anticipated”, I think it is accurate in this case.  We round out the show with some Progressive Thrash and good ol’ groovy Death Metal.

And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

Off to a Groovy Start

As we work our way deeper into 2021, we transition with a hybrid episode of sorts.  We have two brand new albums for your earholes this week, but we also check out two more things we didn’t get to last year.  Per usual though, results are as mixed as the styles covered.

And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.
