BUT WAIT!!  There’s a twist!

Do you really want this album?  Have you no shame?  Then you have a chance to automatically win!

As Kyle announced in the aforementioned episode, if you send us an “audition tape” of you trying out for the now-filled Killswitch Engage  vocalist position, you will automatically win a copy of the CD.  If we have have more than one audition submission, Kyle will buy the subsequent entries a copy of the CD, meaning there can be more than one winner…up to five, actually!  As a bonus (well, bonus to some) Kyle will also embarrass the hell out of himself and do his own audition in a future episode.  Here’s the rules and other important information for this:

– You must perform at least one verse and one chorus of a Killswitch Engage song.

–  The recording can be video or audio-only.

– All entries must be sent as links or attached files to Mail@thesideshowpodcast.com, titled “Killswitch Audition Tape” or something equally identifying.

– Once an “audition tape” entry is received, this post will be updated to note such.  After the update, the contest will remain open for 24 more hours, during which additional “audition tapes” can be submitted.

– The first five (5) “audition tape” entrants that meet the above requirements will received a copy of Disarm the Descent.

– By submitting this “audition tape”, you consent to having it played in the podcast and/or on this website.

I think that about covers it!  Have fun, freaks!

Boy, do we have an epic episode for you!  Not only do we have a record six albums shoved in here, but i think this ends up as our longest episode thus far.  There’s a polarizing review of the new Killswitch Engage album! That’s followed up by the long-awaited (by long I mean two weeks) review of the raved-about-by-Kyle Russian Circles!  And then after that, Kyle decides he has had enough and jumps ship! There’s a Sideshow Case!  There’s Melodic Death about aliens!  There’s Polka!  Wait…what?  Yeah.  Polka.  It happens.

Also, make sure you stay tuned to the site for a contest announcement of how you can win your self a copy of Killswitch Engage’s Disarm the Descent!  And, as always, feel free to share your own thoughts on any of the albums in the comments!
