What Do You Call a Man with No Arms and No Legs in the Ocean?

There’s a couple of big releases this show, and we have a special guest to help us review them!  If you know bad jokes, you should be able to guess who it is.

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.

Meow

We have starkly diverse line-up of reviews this episode. I mean, we usually have a mix of styles, but there were some sharp transitions when we were listening this week.  We also start our next Black Label feature, and talk about quarantine life.

Feel free to discuss anything and everything with us in our comments section or on social media!

And remember – Be safe. Stay inside. Stay Metal.

Musical Reuben 

We have reviewed all of these bands before on this show…a few times each, actually.  Despite that, two of the albums reviewed this week took us by surprise, for different reasons.  The third was good, but we also expected it to be good. So get listening to see how that all shakes out.

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.
